Teclast X6 Pro Launch – Intel Core m3 Powered 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 2880 x 1920 2-In-1 For $479

Teclast is launching a successor to the Teclast X5 Pro these days, and it's appropriately named Teclast X6 Pro. The specs on this new Windows tablet are at about the same level as the predecessor, but the price has dropped by $150, which is what makes it worth a look: https://www.gearbest.com/tablet-pcs/pp_009557424818.html

With the 12.6-inch Windows 10 tablet Teclast X6 Pro being powered by a Intel Core m3 7Y30 “Kaby Lake” processor, with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage, we are looking at Geekbench 4 benchmarks of over 3100 in single-core and over 6100 in multi-core scores, which means it's powerful enough to work as a good computer for all everyday tasks.

With a relatively large 12.6-inch screen and 2880 x 1920 resolution, the display makes it a good Windows tablet too, and one that can handle several open windows at once. And at this size it obviously has a built-in kickstand. It has support for 1024 levels of pressure sensitive digitizer too.

The most major thing that makes something like Microsoft Surface tablets better than Chinese tablets like this one, are more precise digitizers and touchscreens, and more precise touchpads on the keyboards. So if you plan on using a digitizer all the time, I would recommend a more expensive brand like the Surface, or use a mouse with the tablet.

The X6 Pro is well designed to function as a multipurpose workhorse computer, with an 8 hour battery life from the 5000 mAh battery, a full-size USB 3.0 port on each side of the tablet, a USB C port on the right side, as well as featuring a HDMI port, a 3.5mm audio combo jack, a microSD card slot underneath the kickstand, and a DC power/charge port.

Teclast X6 Pro also features full dual-band 2.4 GHz + 5 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi support, stereo speakers, front facing mic, a 2MP front camera, and a 5MP rear camera. The weight is 850 grams, and the thickness is 9mm.

The Teclast X6 Pro tablet is on sale during launch for $479 as a stand-alone tablet, but during launch, it can be bought with the thin Surface style keyboard for $499.
