Teclast X98 Pro Atom X5 Z8500 Cherry Trail Officially Released

Teclast X98 Pro Atom X5 Z8500 Cherry Trail Officially Released

Teclast has just officially announced the Teclast X98 Pro, as expect.It’s an Atom X5 Z8500 Cherry Trail powered X98 Air 3G / Air II successor. With 4GB of Ram and an eMMC 5.0 spec flash drive. The rest of the design according to the info via the live update pages seems just like the X98 series.

Looks like no USB 3.0 or dual band WiFi upgrades sadly. There was a mention of TF card read rates up to 120mb/s? Is the MicroSD card slot wired up via a USB 3 card reader at least? I hope so or it was something lost in translation.

A lot of talk on how the new generation Atom is much faster, 50% faster at 3D Teclast claim. And double the Ram bandwidth with dual channel LPDDR3 1600Mhz Vs single channel 1333Mhz in the current X98 Air series.

Power savings of the 14nm process, Teclast claim 8 hours of battery life. I have mine preordered and I hope it ships out soon for review.

Here are some screen grabs from today’s event.

  1. how i can install this ?

  2. Yeah! At last something intel with a decent gfx. Though not as powerful as Core M, but also not that xpensive. Waiting for review! BTW, anyone tried silicone bt keyboards so far?

  3. I have a doubt, Is this gpu compatible with Direct X 12 ?

  4. This looks very tempting… looking forward to your review Chris.
    How long would you guess before a Android / dual OS update comes?

  5. hahaah this is typical, i was waiting for long, but exactly one week ago i decided to buy the Air II… and now this!

  6. If I can run Skyrim on an X98 Air 3G, you should be able to run LoL on this one

  7. What is the best guess on a street price (outside of China) for this baby…

  8. Do you think League of Legens will run on this device?

    • Definitely! It playable on the X98 Air 3G so it will be twice as good on this.

  9. Hey Chris, where did you order yours from?

    I notice a lot of places still have it listed as “pre-order,” how long does it usually take for the retailers to list it as normal?

    • Once they get stock in their warehouse I guess. It’s on sale now on Tmall.com in China and retailers will have it by the end of the week.

  10. Hi, is there any mentions about the tablet’s weight?
    Besides, Atom x7 z8500 seems to be a typo.


    • Sorry, its “X5 Z8700”

    • Hi, fixed that sorry. No mention of the weight, but it will be the same as the old unit, so around 500 grams.
