Slide Brace X1 4G is almost entirely similar to iBall Slide Brace 3G. Its shape is no way different from the Slide Brace 3G. However, its micro-USB port and its audio jack were moved from the right-hand side position to the left-hand side. The dual chambered speaker remains at the junction between the display screen and the kickstand. The tablet comes in a beautiful Bronze Gold, another notable difference.

This department of the tablet got a downgrade. Its rear camera has an 8MP shooter unlike the 13MP in the iBall Slide Brace 3G. Its camera comes with a LED flash for the brightening of images. The camera has features such as Panorama, face detection, face beauty and HDR. The rear camera has a 5MP shooter for the capture of selfies.
PROCESSOR AND OS
The operating system of the tablet is the Remix OS. For the uninitiated, the Remix OS is a blend of Android OS with Windows OS. The Android OS is the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The Remix OS gives the tablet's app list display a Windows 10-like appearance, with the Android navigation buttons unusually on the left-hand side of the touch screen's display rather than the centre.
MediaTek MT8783 octa-core processor is what powers the tablet. The processor with eight cores is clocked at 1.3GHz. For the graphics production, the tablet was incorporated with the Mali-T720 GPU.
