Chuwi is launching a new 2022 Chuwi HiPad Pro model, other than the version they launched last summer. The new model features a MediaTek G95 chipset, and is launching on Aliexpress from $299.
The predecessor with the Qualcomm processor was Chuwi’s most interesting tablet until then, but the successor is even better.
Even Chuwi themselves said the predecessor had some shortcomings, which is the first time any tablet manufacturer have ever stated such a thing in public. You know you’ll never hear those words from companies like Apple, Google, and Microsoft.
Featuring a 10.8-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600, an octa-core MediaTek MT8789 processor, 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage, it has what it takes to be an interesting Android 11 tablet, that also features an optional keyboard and the H7 Wacom digitizer pen.
The new Chuwi HiPad Pro doesn’t disappoint in other areas either, as it features four 1W speakers, a 5MP punch-hole front camera, a 8MP rear camera with LED, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 5, BT 5.0, GPS, A-GPS, BDS, g-sensor, gyro, a 7000 mAh battery with a 10 hour battery life, and a USB C 3.0 port.
The benchmark scores are okay for a tablet in this category, and it’s slim too, with a thickness of 7.5mm, and a weight of just 455 grams.
The only things missing are a 3.5mm audio jack, and a trackpad on the keyboard. But you can connect the audio through the USB C port, and with a touchscreen, the need for a trackpad isn’t too pressing, and a mouse is another option in place of a missing trackpad.
