I spotted this on JD.com, in an interesting turn of events it would seem Chuwi has the Hi10 on some type of Kickstarter, crowd fundraiser in China. Specs still talk of an Atom X5 Z8300 with 4GB of Ram. Did Chuwi find a way to get the Z8300 to run 4GB? Intel’s Ark states it will only support 2GB max. And they show three USB ports. 2 x USB 2.0 and one microUSB, like the Chuwi Vi10.
So they are looking to raise 2,000,000 yuan for the Chuwi Hi10. Which is around $315,000 USD, now what happens if they don’t meet this figure? No Hi10? It’s all a bit odd if you ask me, is this the future of Chinese electronic companies, public fundraisers?
One bothersome spec I noticed, battery size 6600mAH! Argh, that should be at least 8000mAH, I hope that is subject to change? The release date is still set for the 11th of November, just in time for the big 11/11 sales.
