New 3rd Version 8-Inch Pocket Laptop Chuwi MiniBook With J4125 Processor Launching For $329

Four years ago, the 7-inch and 8-inch Windows tablets for the consumer market were replaced by pocket laptops of the same size instead. One of these pocket laptops was the Chuwi Minibook back in 2019.

It came with options of an Intel Core m3 processor or Intel Celeron N4100 processor.

But I’ve just learned through Liliputing that a new 2022 model Chuwi Minibook with an Intel Celeron “Gemini Lake” J4125 processor is launching this spring, and the price is just $329.

So that makes it cheaper than even the former N4100 model. And best of all, all the other features are there.

This includes an 8-inch screen with a Full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution touchscreen with digitizer support, a backlit keyboard of course and both tablet mode and tent mode, it has 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and 128GB of eMMC 5.1 storage as well as a microSD card slot.

Other hardware includes stereo speakers, a 2MP front camera, a 3500 mAh battery with a 45W charger, dual-band Wi-Fi 5, BT 4.2, a fingerprint reader, and ports such as USB C, USB A 2.0 and 3.0, a miniHD port, and a 3.5mm audio combo jack.

The maximum screen brightness is only 250 nits, but at least it’s a small screen, so it might suffice for most uses.

Chuwi MiniBook weighs 660 grams and is 19.3mm thick with the keyboard closed.

It does not appear to launch before April, but the pre-launch price could make it worth the wait all the same.
