The Dell Venue 8 7000 is surely one of the best tablets that you can buy today. It is still the thinnest tablet on the market and has a good screen, Intel processor and 8-megapixel camera with RealSense. Although it has taken longer than expected, after changing several possible dates, now Dell finally adds to its Android 5.0.2 Lollipop sheet. The update from Android 4.4 Kitkat (including factory version) has already begun to be distributed and should reach all units.
Dell Venue 8 7000 Series is the high-end tablet developed by the American manufacturer, also known as Dell Venue 8 7840 referring to the model and not the series (7000) with which place their devices within this classification (5000 series or 3000 series would be lower). In the past, it appeared and became popular as the thinnest tablet in the world, narrowly beating the iPad Air 2 to 6 millimeters thick. But its qualities go far beyond.
The OLED display of 8.4 inches with resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels and 359 pixels per inch density, it is considered one of the best tablets that can be found today. Inside are a solvent Intel Atom Z3580 (Intel Moorefield) processor manufactured with 22nm technology and architecture Silvermont with four cores at 2.33 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage expandable via microSD slot. The camera is one of its strengths, although the 8-megapixel sensor is placed in the middle of high-end, Intel’s RealSense technology adds a special touch. Other features are the 4G connectivity and a premium design.
Until now since it was finally presented at CES in Las Vegas, it was counting on Android 4.4 Kitkat, but at last the American manufacturer has released the update to version 5.0.2 lollipop, which will further enhance its performance (compared to what was shown in the last Mobile World Congress), and is available for download from the corresponding settings menu. We assume that will take place in stages, it is usual in these types of updates, so we just wait a few days if you still have the option to upgrade.
