uPlay Q97sc is the cost-down version of Q97s – a white label 9. 7 inch tablet powered by ARM A7 Quad-Core CPU with built-in 8 core PowerVR SGX GPU, and runs the latest Google Android 4 .2 Jelly Bean – Q97s runs AllWinner A31s instead of A31. The display is an capacitive multi-touch screen (1024×868 pixels). Other key features include 4K HDMI output, 0.3 MP front and 2 MP rear camera ( front and 5MP rear cameras also availabel for customized tablet order) with auto focus, OTG port to connect keyboard , mouse, and hard drive, bluetooth , and 6,000 mAh battery . The difference between Q97sc and Q97s are display and case.
uPlay Q97sc is one of the first Android 4 .2 tablets made by uPlay. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is the latest Android operating system released by Google. Google used to make a catchup game with Apple on its early releases, but Android 4.1 is pretty much i par with Apple iOS. The all new designed Google Android 4.1 has kept many good features from its previous release, and made the GUI with a better layout, more intuitive, more smooth transition, and virtualized all keys. You can even merge the file folder like in iOS, switch between multi-tasks, plus all new widget tools. Android 4.2 is an upgraded version and the latest version that has been used in Google Nexus 7 and Nexus 10.
AllWinner A31s is the latest quad-core mobile application processor from AllWinner that implements the ARM Cortex-A7 CPU architecture and PowerVR SGX544 MP2 GPU. AllWinner A31 is the first two quad-core CPUs seen on Chinese made tablet . Its CPU is based on mainstream ARM Cortex-A7, the third generation of ARM Cortex CPU. The GPU is eight-core PowerVR SGX544. AllWinner A31 is made with 40nm process technology, which is about 2X faster and consumes about 1/2 power than other CPUs made by 65nm process technology. The performance of this quad-core CPU is actually faster than the CPU the quad-core CPU used in Apple iPad 4.
In 2011, Cortex-A7 was introduced by ARM, and that is four years after Cortex-A9. When compared with Cortex-A9, Cortex-A7 design does have some improvements, as listed on ARM official website:
- Integrated L2 cache
- Lower L2 latencies (10 cycles)
- Improved OS support for L2 maintenance due to simplified software control
- Designed with a low power approach
- Improved branch prediction
- Improved memory system performance
- 64b Load Store path, improves integer and NEON performance
- 128b AMBA 4 buses improve bandwidth
- Increased TLB size (256 entry, up from 128 entry for Cortex-A9 and Cortex A5)
- Increased performance for large workloads like web browsing
- Seamlessly compatible with Cortex-A15 (big.LITTLE)
In ARM Cortex-A7, ARM transforms its design principle from improving the system performance by increasing frequency, to MPCore architecture that could bring improvements in performance, and at the same time, optimize the high power consumption and heat caused by high frequency of Cortex-A9.
Comparing with Cortex A8, ARM Cortex-A7 only consume 20% of power, but offer 50% improvement on performance. So far, AllWinner A31 is the first Cortex-A7 based CPU, even nVidia and Samsung haven’t licensed Cortex A7 in their CPU yet.
AllWinner announced A31s at Mobile World Congress 2013. A31s is basically a cost-down version of A31.
Compared to AllWinner A31, A31s supports 2160p video decoding, which is pretty good already (A31 supports 4kx2k), 1280×800 resolution for screens (A31 supports retina display ), and 1080p HDMI output. A31 camera sensor can support between 5 to 8 MP, but A31 can support lower resolution (0.3M) for front camera, to a maximum of 5MP. The PMIC is called AXP221s vs AXP221 for A31. The rest of the specifications are the same. A31s supports both Android 4.1/4.2 and “Windows 8″.
So overall if you don’t need retina display , choosing A31 is the right decision, since it’s cheaper and also consume less battery, so your tablet runs longer.
