The Chuwi Hi10 X, a 2-in-1 tablet that may stand to be the best value Windows tablet of 2020 is set to be released, as it’s launching on Banggood who believe that they will will be able to ship it after January 17:
The price is one of this things that makes it so attractive, at just $269 for the tablet, keyboard, and digitizer pen all at once. Though it’s also possible to buy just the tablet by itself too for $219.
Typical 2.4 GHz Intel Celeron N4100 “Gemini Lake” benchmark scores in Geekbench 4 would be 1800 in single-core and 5370 in multi-core scores, even if it had less and slower RAM, so with 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and 128GB of storage, this is pretty much the perfect hardware for a 10.1-inch 2-in-1 tablet with Windows, when you consider that you can get more than four of these tablets for the price of one Surface Pro X.
The 10.1-inch screen has a Full HD resolution display at 1920 x 1200, with a 2MP front camera for video chats, a 5MP rear camera, and stereo speakers.
The other specs on the tablet are dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0, a claimed 8 hour battery life, microSD card support for cards up to 128GB, and it has a USB C 3.0 port, another USB C 2.0 port (used as the power/charging port for the power adapter), a micro-HDMI port, and a 3.5mm audio combo jack on the tablet, and then an additional set two of full-size USB ports on each side of the keyboard if you want to plug in a mouse or other computer peripherals.
And if you don’t like some of the sometimes spongy thin keyboards that some tablets are coupled with, the Chuwi Hi10 X keyboard is of the traditional and rigid type that doesn’t bounce when you type on it. The keyboard also connects to the tablet through pogo pins and magnetic attachement.
The pen Chuwi pen that’s included is a digitizer called Chuwi HiPen H3 with 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity. Which is handy for students and workers who needs to annotate or highlight text.
The new Chuwi Hi10 X tablet weighs 522 grams and is 8.8mm thick. So we are off to a good start in tablet computers in 2020, and for those looking for a good 2-in-1 tablet at this size basically have this and the Surface Go to chose between right now.
