The tablet is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek (MT8382) processor with 1GB of RAM and Mali -400 GPU. It comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage, which is further expandable via microSD card (up to 32GB).
It sports a 5-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash, while there is a secondary 2-megapixel front-facing camera also onboard. On the connectivity front, the Digiflip Pro XT 712 includes 3G, Wi-Fi, Micro-USB, A-GPS, GPRS/ EDGE, and Bluetooth options. The tablet packs a 3000mAh battery, which is rated to deliver up to 8 hours of talk time and up to 168 hours of standby time. The Digiflip Pro XT 712 will be available in Black and White colour variants.
The Black colour variant of the Digiflip Pro XT 712 has already gone on sale via Flipkart, while the White model is expected to be available soon.
