Acer Iconia Tab 10 Paves the Way for Quantum Dot Display in Tablets

May 27, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Acer hasn’t got much credits to its name when it comes to introducing innovative technologies in their gadgets. But for once they are now stepping up to provide a breakthrough to the tablet segment with the introduction of quantum dot displays among them.

The newly revealed Iconia Tab 10 is the one under the limelight with its quantum dot technology. Acer has introduced two models under its Iconia Tab 10 brand with respective model names A3-A40 and B3-A40, and it’s the former that is stealing the show right now.

But strictly speaking, Acer’s A3-A40 is not essentially the complete QD display device. Instead, it makes use of a quantum dot film on its back panel to produce a better color gamut. This in theory, should provide a relatively better output than traditional displays, but don’t expect them to be awe-inspiring like true QD displays.

However, the effort to bring in the technology must not go undeserved. Acer’s attempt to induce the QD effect onto their displays should inspire the rest of the tablet manufacturers in eventually bringing up true quantum dot displays onto the tablet segment.

As with the other specs, the A3-A40 doesn’t feature standout specs. Inside the hood is a quad-core MediaTek processor, which presumably should be of the mid-range segment. Other specifications of the device are yet to be revealed.

The Iconia Tab 10 B3-A40, the other device that was revealed alongside, is a device that’s focused on productivity and arrives with two microUSB ports. The tablet will feature the same specification as that of its counterpart including support for DTS HD sound and Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Pricing and shipping details are not out as of yet.
