Let me start-off by saying that I am equally surprised and shocked as much as you all are, to see iBall launching such a highly powered tablet.
The iBall Slide Q9703 comes with a 9.7-inch HD IPS display boasting a staggering 2048 x 1536 pixels and 264ppi pixel density, which is at par to that of iPad 4 though priced merely at Rs 15,990.
This high-res display is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor alongside octa-core GPU coupled with 2GB of RAM. iBall claims the tablet supports 4K video playback. The power-hogger will be powered by a 8000mAh battery. Sadly, the tablet comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. We hope the company provides a future software update to 4.2.
Key specifications of iBall Slide Q9703:
- 9.7-inch IPS 2048x1536p display with 264ppi
- 1.2GHz quad-core processor, PowerVR SGX544 MP2 GPU, 2GB of RAM
- 5-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera

Though we are yet to lay our hands on this device, going by specifications and its price, the device seemed to be very competitvely priced and worth for the given price tag of Rs. 15,999.
