Nicolas from ARMdevices.net made interesting video about the new tablets with A80 from Allwinner headquarter.
Although officially Allwinner have no “information” about A80 – no datasheet, no pricing etc. It seem they worked silently to release tablet reference design which is ready for production now.
Interesting feature is hardware face recognition in A80 which allow tablet to track your face and if you set it with this feature your video player can stop when you look outside tablet and continue to play when you look back at the tablet screen.
The sell price $177 gives rough idea that the release price of A80 would be about same as the price of A31 when it was first released several months ago, the severe competition keep the price of this Octa core processor reasonable.
