Rockchip RK3562-powered Android 13 tablets are starting to show up

Back in March, Rockchip showcased some tablets powered by the new 2.0 GHz Rockchip RK3562 quad-core Cortex-A53 processor, and now commercial Android 13 tablets based on the SoC are starting to show up with models such as BMAX MaxPad I9 PLUS and UMIDIGI G1.

(4GB RAM + 4GB Expansion) – it’s exactly 4gb of swap.
for example, Ulefone have a smartphone marketed as “17GB RAM” with some 5GB “virtual memory”

Behh… Reminds me the bad old times where disks were sold assuming a 2:1 compression ratio. Then later when Stacker arrived they started to assume 2.5:1 without changing any component. How pathetic this is…

Slow (new!) 4x A53, fake 8 GB RAM, looks like a real winner.

Two things that won’t make sense to me:
1) new designs using an A53
2) 1280×800 10″ displays Why? Do people like seeing the RGB subpixels?

Indeed. My old tablet from 2011 or so had 1920×1080. Yes that was 12 years ago. Over 100% more pixels.
