Chuwi Hi9 Plus Taking Preorders – 10.8-Inch Android 8.0 2-In-1 Tablet

Chuwi Hi9 Plus will be released in the coming weeks, as it has now started taking pre-orders on

It's among the largest Android 8.0 tablets of 2018, and it's also a 2-in-1 tablet with an optional smart looking keyboard cover and a digitizer pen. So that makes it a little bit of a competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. But it's not as powerful as Samsung's Tab S4, as Samsung's flagship can be up to 50% more powerful than the Chuwi Hi9 Plus.

Still, the Chuwi Hi9 Plus is no slouch either, with a deca-core MediaTek MT6797 (Helio X27) processor, Mali-T880 GPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and 64GB of storage, with support for microSD cards up to 128GB.

The display may be the pinnacle on this tablet, with a 10.8-inch screen and 2560 x 1600 resolution display, though for others it may be the 4G LTE and the dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi cover, with Bluetooth 4.1.

The tablet cameras are similar on both sides, with a 8MP front camera, and 8MP rear camera, and the Hi9 Plus has stereo speakers, a 7000 mAh battery which is supposed to provide us with a 10 hour battery life and 15 days standby time. It weighs 550 gram and is 8.4mm thick.

The USB port is a USB Type-C port fit, but with USB 2.0. The optional Chuwi HiPen digitizer is a 1024 pressure level supported digitizer, while the keyboard doubles as both a stand and cover. The pen looks identical to the Chuwi Hi13 pen, which is decent but not perfect. So those who plan on using the pen a lot or for precision work should opt for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 instead.
