Teclast T20 with Mediatek Helio X27 & 2.5K Display Listed Online

Teclast T20

Apparently there was a reason behind the drop in price for the still very good Teclast Master T10 we covered a couple days back, and that is the imminent launch of its successor – the Teclast T20.

The new tablet is indeed now listed over on Gearbest, where you can currently submit to receive an arrival notice. According to the website, the Teclast T20 will be packing a MediaTek MT6797X ( Helio X27) deca-core clocked at 2.6Ghz, which we aren’t sure is really an upgrade over the MT8176 of the Master T10. Along with the new CPU we then get 4GB of DDR3L RAM and 64GB eMMC ROM that is, of course, expandable via microSD to up to 256GB.

The Teclast T20 will be sporting a large 10.1-inch fully laminated Sharp display with 2560 x 1600 resolution (probably the exact same panel as the T10), with a high resolution 13MP camera above it to snap selfies or videochat, same resolution for the rear camera as well.

The biggest upgrade over the predecessor is the new SIM slot that will allow it to connect to 4G LTE networks all around the globe, at least according to the product page. Other specs include a large 8100mAh battery with quick charge support through the USB Type-C port, a fingerprint scanner on the back, GPS, Bluetooth 4.1, WiFi AC, a 3.5mm audio jack and Android 7.0 Nougat as OS.

  1. Hi, will you review the new chuwi hi9 plus?

  2. Android 7.0 is out of date

  3. Teclast never get it quite right. Adding LTE… Chinese LTE bands.
    2G: GSM 1900MHz,GSM 900MHz
    3G: WCDMA B1 2100MHz
    TD-SCDMA: TD-SCDMA B34/B39
    4G: B1 2100MHz,B3 1800MHz,TDD B38 2600MHz,TDD B39 1900MHz,TDD B40 2300MHz,TDD B41 2500MHz

    Chuwi does global LTE, no reason Teclast can’t.

  4. By the time this one launches it will have Android 8+. It happens with most tablets listed at first by Banggood and Gearbest. They copy paste a stat list and edit what they know. Then by release time they edit the final specs. This has happened quite some times before. With my T8, Alldocube M5 atleast.

    • Well, I’ve just reviewed it and it’s Android 7.1.1 which is a real shame, don’t understand this move. I hope they update it.

  5. I’m wondering why the M20 with an older Mediatek X20 is out with Android 8, whereas this with a news X27 (but actually the same chip, so the rom should work as well) is announced to come (in the future) with Android 7
    .
    besides I still appreciate the return of the GPS on tablets, despite I prefer a 3:2 aspect ratio on screens up to 22-24″

  6. Android 7 = Fail

  7. The Helio X27 vs the MT8176 has more than just the advantage of the two cores running at 2.6Ghz vs 2.1Ghz. It also has 4 additional cores running at 2.0Ghz that the MT8176 does not have. Remember we are talking 10 cores vs 6 cores. All 10 of the X27 cores run faster than the 6 cores in the MT8176. So I would expect the X27 to be much faster if cooling/throttling is well managed. I’d guess at least 30% improvement.
    The X27 fab was a 20nm process vs 28nm for the MT8176, so perhaps lower power consumption may compensate some for faster and more cores, and integrated 4G on the battery life.

  8. I sold my Master T10 a few back. The HDMI cam in useful on a few occasions, so it’s a shame that this T20 newbie won’t have it. Long live my Mediapad M5 10.8 LTE, which doesn’t have HDMI either, but it’s a winner in every other respect.

    • The Mediapad M5 does look good. Just the price put me off from buying it and now I’m happy with my Xiaomi Mi Pad 4. But I might get the Mi Pad 4 Plus for LTE and the fingerprint reader like your Mediapad M5.

  9. Yes, the X27 even if it has a higher clocked Mali-T880 I doubt at 2560 x 1600 will do better than the PowerVR GX6250 in the master T10. We now have 4G support, but it isn’t really an upgrade. They should have even gone for a Snapdragon 625 or something. Teclast should try using Qualcomm chips.
