In 5 years it doesn't look like they've really beefed up the device specs - which explains how they've reduced the price as well.
Here's what you end up getting for the price:
- 8" 1200x800
- Qualcomm 215 1.3GHz x4
- 2GB RAM
- 32GB storage
- 5MP / 2MP
- 4630mAh battery
So, can't compare apples to apples with the processor, but a quadcore 1.3 processor vs. an octocore 1.5 from before and it has the same amount of RAM.
The resolution went down, the front selfie cam went down...
I wasn't overly blown away by the device the first time around and this seems to be a clear step down from 5 years ago. It even uses microUSB still.
Good thing it's cheap.
