Dell updates its Venue 8 Pro tablet

It has been two years since Dell presented its Venue 8 Pro tablet and although back then the device packed some impressive specs, everything becomes old with time and a refresh is needed. This is exactly what Dell has done to the Venue 8 Pro – the US company has unveiled the second version of this tablet.

The new Venue 8 Pro comes with numerous hardware improvements compared to its predecessor – the changes affect the CPU inside, the amount of RAM memory installed and more. Here’s what the updated Venue 8 Pro brings to the table – the new tablet has an Intel Atom x5-Z8500 Cherry Trail processor inside, 2 GB or 4 GB of RAM (depending on the model chosen), 32 GB or 64 GB of internal memory (again depending on the model chosen), two cameras – one rear at 5 MP and another front at 2 MP, a SIM card slot, a USB 3.0 Type-C port and a 19.5 Wh battery. The display, however, has remained the same so you will get an 8-inch screen at 1920 x 1200 pixels. In case you wonder, the tablet measures 216 x 130 x 9.45 mm and weighs 377 grams. All versions of it also run Windows 10 Pro.

The new Venue 8 Pro tablet sells now for USD 349, USD 399 or USD 449, depending on the version chosen.
