Dell Venue 8 7000 confirmed by Dell and Intel – the world’s new thinnest tablet

Dell Venue 8 7000 series will be one of the first Android-running tablets from Dell and it appears the device will launch sometime soon (The Verge says it will arrive in time for the holidays). Venue 7000 has a rather vintage look with a slim body at its 6mm of thickness and it seems to surpass Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact’s most slim tablet in the world.

Venue 8 has little to no bezels with its speakers positioned at the topside near the front-facing camera.  The Dell tablet will be the first such device to sport Intel’s Real Sense depth-mapping tech. the feature uses three cameras on the back of the tablet which allow for post-capture refocusing and other options (space measurements, selective color exclusion based on distance).

Venue 8 has a light aluminum body with an OLED 8.4” display running at 2560 x 1600p Quad HD that allows the user to see beautiful and sharp images. We don’t know Dell’s price tag yet, but we will keep you posted as soon as we find out.
