Dell used the Intel Developer Forum to give the world a sneak peek at the Dell Venue 8 7000 Series, which the company claims will be the world’s thinnest tablet. The device will have other high-end features as well, including an 8.4-inch, 2560×1600, OLED display and very thin bezels.
This tablet was shown off at Intel’s event for developers because it will be powered by a quad-core Atom Z3500 “Moorefield” processor, but that’s not the only reason: Its camera will use Intel RealSense technology to sense the 3D contours of pictures being taken. This will allow users to change the focus of their pictures after they have been taken, or even measure the distance between objects.
In addition, Dell is heavily touting the device’s slim profile. At just 0.25 (6 mm) inches, it’s thinner than any other tablet that’s been announced so far.
Dell hasn’t released all of this model’s specifications yet. It’s unclear how much RAM will be included orwhat storage capacities will be offered. It’s quite possible it will debut running Android L. A front-facing speaker is on the feature list, though.
The plan is for the Venue 8 7000 Series to be on the market for this year’s holiday shopping season, although an exact release date hasn’t been announced. Pricing is a mystery at this point.
