Teclast has announced, their 4th new Atom Cherry Trail tablet this month. The X16 Pro and it’s aimed directly at the Chuwi Hi10 I think. Remember the X16HD I reviewed? Maybe not, well this is the updated version with the new X5 Z8500 and a standard (full sized?) USB 3.0 port.
It’s doing to be a dual boot system with Windows 10/Android 5, with 4GB of ram, 64GB eMMC and active stylus support. Let’s hope they add a copper heatsink to the hot Atom X5 Z8500. No word on the pricing or
release date. When I find out, I’ll let you know.
Update 25th Oct: The release date looks to be the 30th of November I saw on the Teclast Forum, so I don’t see this shipping out until December at least. I will do my best to get my hands on this model. As it personally interests me. It covers, specs I want in a cheap travel/work tablet. 4GB ram, keyboard, full sized USB 3 port and hopefully good battery life. 1920 x 1080 I find is still good on a tablet, even at 11.6″ as you have no scaling issues.
Since it is over 10″ I don’t think this will ship with Windows 10 Home. But that cheaper Windows 10 Chinese only version the X2 Pro had I reviewed. The price I guess will be in the $260-$300 range with the keyboard.
