Chuwi Hi9 has been released this week, making it the first new tablet out in 2018. Chuwi calls this tablet a gaming tablet, and while I was a little curious about it when it first leaked, there seems to be some reasons to go for the alternatives instead. https://www.banggood.com/Original-Box-CHUWI-Hi9
I knew about the 4500 mAh battery, which might be considered too little for this tablet, but it also has a plastic body, which is a rare sight on tablets these days, and it’s often not good for the overall quality.
It’s powered a 1.9 GHz MediaTek MT8173 processor and PowerVR GX6250 GPU, 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and 64GB of eMMC storage with 128GB microSD card support. Because of the CPU and GPU, this makes the 8.4-inch Teclast T8 a better alterative, since it has a MediaTek MT8176 processor instead, which at Geekbench achieves a multi-core score that is 60% higher! Teclast T8 also has a proper metal body.
The 8.4-inch Chuwi Hi9 screen has a 2.5D WQXGA display, meaning 2560 x 1600 resolution, and it’s a OGS fully laminated display too. OS version is Android 7.0 Nougat at the moment.
Chuwi Hi9 even has full dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi cover, Bluetooth 4.0, a micro-USB port, a micro-HDMI port, a 3.5mm audio combo jack, a 2.1MP front camera and a 5MP rear camera.
