During the time we saw it at the MSI press launch, the build quality is very good and almost the same as the aluminum-clad iPad Mini.
Here’s the complete hardware specification we got from MSI that time, including the update to Jellybean.
MSI Primo 81 specs:
7.85-inch IPS LCD display @ 1024×768 pixels
Allwinner A31s 1.0GHz quad-core processor
PowreVR SGX544MP2 Graphics
16GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD card
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Micro-USB with OTG (On-The-Go) Support
3MP rear camera
0.3MP front-facing camera
Li-Ion 3500mAh battery
Android 4.2 Jellybean
200.2 x 135 x 7.82mm (dimensions)
323 grams (weight)
We’re just not sure how that quad-core Allwinner processor will fare. Perhaps they’re as good as the quad-core from Mediatek. We spotted this one being sold at Villman for just Php8,994.
