Cube To Announce Skylake Powered Tablet 14th Jan

In a Weibo from Cube today, the Chinese tech company announced it will host a conference on the 14th. The theme is Tablet PC core era, which I think means Intel Core M Skylake era?

Cube intel core m3 skylake

So it sounds like they will be annoucing their new Cube i9 or i7 Stylus Skylake M3-6Y30 refresh? Either way an Intel Core M3-6Y30 is a nice step up in performance as seen in the Surface Pro 4 M3 and other Core M3 tablets

I only hope the annoucment will include such specs as Wireless AC and a fully laminated display in the next Cube flagship. Hell, maybe even a USB 3.1 Type-C port for future proofing?

My guess at the next Cube Core M3 tablets specs:

  • Core M3-6Y30
  • 4GB of DDR3 Ram
  • 64GB SSD
  • Full sized USB 3.0 Port
  • 11.6″ 1920 x 1080 screen or maybe a 12″ Surface Pro 3 screen?
  • New keyboard and dock similar to the new iwork10 dock.
  • Wirless N 150Mbs
  • Mini HDMI
  • BT 4.0

  1. Hi guys, long time lurker first time poster.

    I think I found the presentation of the cube i9!!!
    It’s quite what chris said,
    Core M3-6Y30
    4GB of DDR3 Ram
    128GB SSD
    usb type c 3.1 port
    12.2″ 1920 x 1200, maybe a 12″ Surface Pro 3 screen with wacom?!
    Wirless N 150Mbs
    BT 4.0

    It seems no mini hdmi thow…

  2. and finally just another cube I7 stylus with a new intel cpu lol XD

  3. maybe a core m 3:2 tablet?
    why not..

    • I hope so,now they have access to the SP3 1440p screen would should see a Core M3 with this screen. My guess anyway.

  4. i want cube to go like chuwi hi12 form factor and build, core m3, laminated retina display, ssd, wireless ac even 4g and a one of a kind detachable 360′ rotating keyboard dock!! That will put a smile on my face and many others!

  5. i feel this is the tablet i have been waiting for to get, fingers crossed

  6. how much difference can there be power for core M3 , M5 or M7????
    I think the core M3 is not sufficient

    • They are a step up, but they also hit thermal limits much quicker than the lower clocked M3. Price also is anotehr factor as to why I doubt any Chinese Shenzhen MFG will use the M5 or M7.

  7. The wireless AC would be great but it really needs to be dual band. I would have bought the last generation Core M Cube i7 Stylus off them last year during the singles sale if the device had dual band.

  8. I really hope they use the Surface 3 screen and have wacom support.
    Any idea how long it usually takes between the annoucement and the actual release?

    • no wacom digitizer for this screen since microsoft use N-Trig for the SP3 :/

    • Anywhere from a month till 3. I think last time the i7 stylus was announced it took about 2-3 months before it was on sale on Tmall.com

  9. most important thing ? please a laminated screen !!!

    • Yes, that makes a huge difference. Only the Cube i7 (not stylus version) and the Xiaomi Mi Pad’s have fully laminated screens. We need more!!
