From Chuwi’s Weibo press event today, they have confirmed the Hi8 Pro will feature a USB 3 Type-C port. This will be the first Chinese tablet to come with this new connector, as far as I can tell it’s USB 3.0 Type C and not USB 3.1 (The Asus Transformer Book T100HA has USB 3.1 Type C) if anyone understands Chinese can you please confirm it’s 3.0 or 3.1?
Points of note:
- Same design and screen of the Hi8, 1920 x 1200 16:9 350 nits
- Battery life is claimed to be a massive 8 hours (Hard to believe this figure!)
- Supports 128GB MicroSD cards
- USB Type-C connector (Three times more expensive than the Micro USB 2.0 port Chuwi point out)
- Atom X5 Z8300 Cherry Trail (1.84 Ghz boost)
- 32GB eMMC
- 2GB of DDR3L Ram
The tablet should be released now and makes it’s way out from the factory, Banggood have it listed for $99.
