I had mentioned that the new Chuwi Hi9 Pro tablet would launch soon, but as a part of a pre-launch campaign, there’s a ongoing Chuwi Hi9 Pro sale now, where the tablet is cut from $179 to $139: https://www.gearbest.com/tablet-pcs/pp_009962568952.html
So that makes it worth checking out for those looking for a capable allround Android 8.0 tablet in the 8.4-inch category. The highlight is the 8.4-inch 2.5D curved screen with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display, the full Wi-Fi cover with dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi cover, and the Android 8.0 Oreo on this tablet.
Chuwi Hi9 Pro has built in 4G LTE too, but the 4G bands covered are nr 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20, and 40, so if the 4G LTE is part of the reason to buy it, check the Wiki bands list first to see if it’s 4G compatible where you intend to use the 4G of this tablet.
Powered by the deca-core MediaTek MT6797 (Helio X20) processor, with 3GB RAM, and 32GB storage, it achieves Geekbench 4 benchmark scores of around 1760 in single-core, and over 3900 in multi-core scores.
Chuwi Hi9 Pro is 7.9mm thick, weighs 384 grams, has a USB C port, GPS, GLONASS, a 5000 mAh battery with 6 hour battery life, a 5MP front camera, and a 8MP rear Sony camera.
