Chuwi’s new 2160 x 1440 Surface Pro 3 screen tablet the Hi12 is also coming in dark grey I found looking online today (Nice move Chuwi) I was a bit disappointed in the earlier press images of the Hi12 in white & gold. I don’t mind white, but I think black looks more professional and less iPad Pro clone to me. Online retailer GearBest has the release date set as the 28th of January, they have the black and grey (basic version) up for preorder for $250.
And they have a Hi12 white & gold stylus version also listed, but not up for preorder yet. Yes, it states it’s the stylus version, so it looks as if Chuwi will add an active stylus version after the basic non stylus version is launched? So three versions:
- Chuwi Hi12 Basic Version (black and grey without stylus support) Release 28th Jan.
- Chuwi Hi12 Stylus Version (White and gold) Release date TBA
- Chuwi Hi12 Dual Boot version (Stylus support?) TBA
Now we can only hope Chuwi will release a Hi12 Pro or Vi12 version with the same screen and ports, but either an Atom X5 Z8550 or a Skylake 6Y30 version. Something a little more beffier than the bottom line Atom X5 Z8300 powering all those pixels. It’s going to struggle with that and if you want to do some real work, it would be so much better with a Skylake Core M, listening Chuwi ? 😉
