Chuwi will launch a new 10.1-inch Android 8.0 tablet soon by the name of Chuwi Hipad. This is the second new Android tablet with this snappy deca-core processor to surface in September, after the Teclast T20:
The Chuwi Hipad folows a different recipe that most of the Chuwi, Teclast, and Alldocube tablets right now. Its focus is on the gaming experience, which it has credentials in with this deca-core MediaTek MT6797X Helio X27 processor with Mali-T880 GPU. And as a gaming tablet in settles with a fully laminated Full HD display at a resolution of 1920 x 1200. Surprisingly it also settles with 3GB of RAM, while it has 32GB of storage.
The pros and cons of this is that 4GB of RAM would have been welcome, but on the other hand it has a 10 hour battery life because of this particular configuration. The battery size is 7000 mAh. The Chuwi Hipad benchmarks from the last two days shows that the Chuwi Hipad is a snappy Android tablet with fast web browsing, with around 1700 in Geekbench 4 single-core scores, and an average of 4300 in multi-core scores.
Wi-Fi cover is complete with dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, and it has GPS, a micro-USB port, and a 3.5mm audio combo jack.
As for remaining specs, the upcoming Chuwi Hipad tablet has Android 8.0 Oreo, microSD card support up to 128GB, a 5MP front camera, 5MP rear camera, while weighing 490 gram and being 9.4mm thick.
The Chuwi Hipad design carries some distinctive hints of being a gaming tablet computer with its red lines on the back of the tablet. Something we haven’t seen anything similar to since the 8-inch gaming tablet Acer Predator.
Chuwi Hipad will be launched from the Banggood store in the weeks ahead. It’s listed at $269 before launch, but I don’t know yet if that will be the final price at release.
