The device will also have 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB or 32 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot (up to 32 GB), a 0.3 MP front camera and a rear 5 MP camera, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11n, micro HDMI and micro USB 2.0 ports, various sensors and a lithium-ion battery that can power the device for up to 9 hours of video watching. To finish, the Iconia A3 will have 5.1-channeled audio.
