Starmobile has taken the wraps off of its latest addition to its tablet portfolio. Touted as the company’s lightest, thinnest, and slimmest budget tablet, the new Starmobile Engage 7 Lite is a 7-inch Android Jelly Bean device with an SRP of only Php3,990.
To put those claims into numbers, the Starmobile Engage 7 Lite only weighs 283.6g and measures 10.2mm on its profile. The tablet is also notable for having 8GB of internal storage, which is double the usual amount of ROM that other comparatively priced tablets offer. Such storage space is still small, what with the large apps and games downloadable at the Play Store, that’s why a microSD expansion is also available up to 32GB.

Also released alongside the Starmobile 7 Lite are the Engage 7TV+ and the Engage Quad8+. As the names imply, the former sports a TV tuner for viewing local channels even while on the go, whereas the latter features a quad-core processor to provide enough juice for its 7.85-inch XGA display. The Starmobile Engage 9i was also unveiled earlier this year.
Sporting a brushed metal finish, the Starmobile Engage 7 Lite retails for Php3,990. Available color variants are silver and black. An optional case is also available, though its price is yet to be unveiled.
