Hisense is one of the biggest white good makers in China and has shown glimpses of its global ambitions earlier this year at CES.
The Hisense Sero 8 Pro – which costs £150 at Ebuyer - comes with a textured back and a 7in IPS display with a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution layered with a scratch resistant glass. Other features include a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC clocked at 1.3GHz, 1GB of RAM, 32GB onboard storage, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-FI, a 4,000 mAh battery, a front facing 2-megapixel camera and a rear 5-megapixel one (with a flash) and Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.
Where the Hisense Sero 7 Pro surpasses the original Nexus 7 is that it comes with GPS, a microSD card slot and a mini HDMI port, all of which are missing from Google's popular tablet.
Other than the Nexus 7, rivals to the Hisense Sero 7 will include the Fuhu Nabi tablet, the Asus MemoPad HD7 and the Lenovo IdeaPad A3000. Expect prices to go down and specs up, as the new Nexus 7 is likely to shake up the 7in tablet market again.
