7.85-inch Colorfly CT781 Android tablet takes on the iPad mini: thinner profile, cheaper price

by: Chris SmithMarch 25, 2013


The Colorfly CT781 is a brand new iPad mini clone from China that runs Android, in addition to the Goopad mini that we’ve seen a while ago.

Made by Colorful, the Colorfly CT781 sports a 7.85-inch display, and while it looks like an iPad mini, it’s actually thinner than one. The Colorfly measures 6.71mm in thickness, compared to the iPad mini’s 7.2mm. The Android tablet has a bezel of only 4.90mm, while the iPad mini measures in at 5.70mm.

When it comes to specs, the device offers a quad-core AllWinner A31 processor, 1GB of RAM and PowerVR SGX544 MP2 GPU and Android OS under the hood, although it’s no clear what version we’re talking about.

Pricing details and launch dates aren’t available at this time, but the Colorful’s 9.7-inch tablet retails for around $177 in China, which means the 7.85-inch tablet should be even cheaper.

According to DigiTimes, Colorful expects to sell as many as 800,000 Colorfly CT781 units in China.

    The shape of the iPad mini is about the only thing worth a flip. This isn’t a bad idea. But 1gb ram? lol..

      Try searching for Onda v818, Chuwi v88 and other tablets equipped with a Rockchip RK3188 processor and 2GB of RAM. These tablets clearly kick Apple’s mini Ipad as far as specs go.
