Chuwi is launching a new 10.4-inch Android 12 tablet in August called Chuwi HiPad Max. It will premiere through Ali Express for $199.
Chuwi HiPad Max is a direct rival to the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 10.5, so they have very similar benchmark scores on Geekbench 5, but Chuwi’s alternative also has a few extra goodies.
The 10.36-inch screen features a 200 x 1200 resolution Full HD display, but the tablet is powered by a2.4 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor, and even 8GB LPDDR4 RAM, as well as 128GB UFS storage and support for 512GB microSD cards.
The other specs are likeable too, with 1W quad speakers, a 5MP front camera and 8MP rear camera, 7000 mAh battery capacity, dual-band Wi-Fi 5, 4G LTE, and a USB C port.
The weight is 440 grams, while the thickness is 8mm. And that makes it on of the 5 lightest tablets in the 10.4-inch tablet segment.
A Chuwi HiPad Max keyboard will launch down the line as well. So with 8GB RAM and a low price, this could turn into a very useful small Android laptop.
