Walmart Onn Tablet Pro 8-inch

Walmart has been selling no-frills Android tablets under its Onn brand for a while, but the $65-plus slates have been basic, to put it mildly. There’s now a better option if you’re willing to spend a little more, however. The 9to5Google team reports that Walmart has introduced a slightly higher-end Onn Tablet Pro line in 8-inch and 10-inch models. They both pack faster (if still unnamed) 2GHz octa-core processors, a doubled 32GB of expandable storage, USB-C and 5-megapixel cameras on both the front and back. These really aren’t professional tools, as the name implies, but they’re considerably better-equipped.

Differences are largely dictated by screen size. The 8-inch version uses an “HD” display instead of the 1,024 x 600 screen of before, albeit with the same 2GB of RAM as before. The 10-inch slate moves to a higher-resolution 1080p screen and 3GB of RAM.

You’ll be paying more for the new Onn tablets, although they’re still comparatively affordable at $99 for the 8-inch Onn Tablet Pro and $129 for the 10-inch design. They’re not so much sequels to the original Onn line as they are upgrades for those who want a better experience for streaming shows or playing the occasional game.
