Dell isn’t a company that you’d expect to hear much about nowadays in the world of Android, but their latest tablet might take a few people by surprise. The Venue 8 7000 measures in at just 6mm thick, which is noticeably smaller than the current title holder, the 7.5mm iPad Air. There’s little bezel on the front of the device, but a modest plastic design with rounded edges is very reminiscent of the HTC One (M8), minus the metal.

Another plus point of the Dell Venue 8 7000 is that it’ll be the first tablet to include Intel’s RealSense photo technology. This technology uses multiple cameras to judge depth, with three cameras on the rear of the device. It runs a stock version of Android 4.4, includes 2GB of RAM and will be one of the first tablets to include Intel’s Atom processor.

No news on pricing or availability, but we’ll update when we know more.
