Three months after the Cube i9 was first teased on Weibo, Cube have announced the 12.2-inch Intel Core m3 powered Cube i9 Windows 10 tablet. Launching in China for the equivalent of 455 US dollar, this is an expensive launch price for a Chinese tablet.
The specific processor is the 6th generation Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor, while the GPU is the HD515. The tablet is sold with 128GB of storage and 128GB microSD card support, and with 4GB of RAM.
Th 12.2-inch screen is only a Full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution display, so this is no Surface pro killer. With a 5000 mAh battery capacity, a weight of 960 grams, and a thickness of 10.5 mm, this is definitely not a Surface Pro replacement.
Other specs include USB Type-C, a 2MP front camera, and a 5MP rear camera. Cube i9 will launch later in January.
Another 12-inch Windows 10 tablet that started taking orders yesterday was the Chuwi Hi12, but at a much lower price of $249.
For those who still want a 12-inch Windows 10 tablet with Intel Core processor and high specs, the Surface Pro 3 starts at $599 these days, while the Asus Transformer Book T300 sells for around $479 with keyboard included.
