Cube i9 $399 Sale Now On

Cube i9 $399 Sale Now On

Edit: The sale is now live, a chance to pick up the Core M3 powered Cube i9 for $399, it ends on the 2nd. I’m also expecting my i9 to arrive this week for my hands on videos and a full review here.

In order to get the saving you have to use the App version of Aliexpress, as the offer is only via the mobile application and not directly on Aliexpress.

Thanks to Max and Vgiozo in the forums for pointing this out. Cube’s official Aliexpress retailer So Cube will be having a sale on the Intel Core M3-6Y30 powered Cube i9. The Price on the 29th of March till 2nd of April will be slashed to just $399. I imagine it will be limited to 1000 units or something. Now that’s not a bad price for a Skylake Core M3, 128GB SSD and a Surface Pro 4 M3 cloned designed.

Chinese tablet news, hands on videos and reviews of the latest Chinese tablets. I don't review or cover just anything, only tablets I think are good enough and worth the attention.

  1. Is the i7 stylus proc has better performance than the 1 in i9? most i9 users claim that i7 stylus has higher score in most benchmark, and i did some research turns out the m-5y10c in i7 stylus is actually on par/better than m3-6y30

    • Can’t confirm, most benchmark shows an decent increase.

      3DMark11:
      P807 -> P1078

      Geekbench:
      2050/4213 -> 2400/4692

      Skylake is also slightly more energy efficient.

    • On paper it should be faster and the Surface Pro 4 M3 is faster for sure. My i9 just arrived today, so I’ll be working on it asap. Keep an on on the site here and YouTube channel for hands-on videos and benchmarks of the 6Y30.

      • that’s great!! looking forward on your review! now i’m deciding whether a x3 pro or cube i9…btw is i9 going to release stylus version anytime soon?

      • Hi Chris, is there any chance that these new skylake processors will be running Android? Quite like the look of this but have little interest in Windows on a tablet and all the android versions are running the z8300 but I want more gpu power.

  2. I ordered a CHUWI Hi10 with Docking Keyboard – how does this compare?

    • Twice as fast this is. And it has a kickstand and full speed SSD.

  3. Bought one Cube i9 tablet, keyboard I bought from a different seller, cause So Cube wanted 85 dollars something for just the keyboard. So I found another seller and bought it for 51 dollars with my native language on it.
    I also bought two Chuwi Hi Book with keyboard for both, with my native language as well.

    Totally price for everything with coupons: 777$

  4. IT HERE!!, Chuwi Hi8 pro finally sale at banggood.

  5. Hey I c it come with a pen in the bundle in alimexpres does it support stylus ?

  6. When does the sale exactly begins 0:0 MEZ?

  7. Any of you guys know if the i9 can be connected to an external display? Cant find any hdmi connectivity in the specs.

  8. Is there a grey and a blue version of the i9?

  9. Only 2000 available and only witk the Ios/Android App

  10. I just checked the SoCube page on AliExpress and noted following specification detail:
    “Support Wi-Fi 802.11n/b/g(Compatible with wifi 5.0)”
    What does that mean? It can receive 5 GHz?

    • Better to look at the product’s page in Cube’s website…unfortunately, it does not get any clearer
      http://www.51cube.com/ch/ProductSizeShow.asp?ID=334

      – (Chinese) “支持Wi-Fi 802.11n/b/g(设计兼容Wifi 5.0,出货无WiFi5.0功能)/模块型号:Realtek 8723BU”

      – (Google Translation) : “Support Wifi 802.11n / b / g (the design is compatible with Wifi 5.0, no shipping WiFi5.0 function) / module model: Realtek 8723BU”

      So here are the facts 🙂
      1) It does not ship with 5Ghz function
      2) It is compatible with 5Ghz function

      Huh?

      Maybe a Seller in Aliexpress could clarify this for us.

      • Thanks for your research. The reason I went for So Cube on AliExpress is that Chris said it is Cube´s official outlet on AliExpress. I tried to google Realtek 8723 BU to find out if it has 5 GHz capacity at all, but that only made me wonder if it exists.
        All in all, this hasn´t exactly increased my trust in Cube. But there is a significant price gap to Teclast Pro 3. I am still undecided.

        • I seem to have to read everything twice nowadays. I just noted on the So Cube page, that the version they sell has Chinese as default language. That spells big trouble to me. Whenever there is a problem with Win10 or some crash (which is bound to happen some time), you are going to see a repair page in Chinese. You may even have problem to install other languages?

          • Not really, you can do a reset of the device and then choose English everywhere, or install the english package (many videos around) and then go into the advanced settings and choose what language should be used in the system for new users as well.

  11. Great. Too late. Ordered an i7 Stylus already…

  12. Will it include the foldable kickstand for that price?

  13. they dont ship to Europe??? I cant order it. Nevermind, I will wait till Teclast X3 PRO with 8GB RAM is out. Thats my baby 🙂

    • When I look up the AliExpress page, it says “Shipping: US $5.99 to Sweden via Singapore Post”.
      It normally wouldn´t, if they can´t ship to Sweden. I don´t see why it would be different with other European countries.

      • i never had such a problem but they dont ship to Germany. I dont know why.
        Hmm… i dont care, teclast X3 is my “winner” so.. enjoy this deal 🙂

        • I changed my country to Germany and this immediately proved you are right. Strange. But at least, they don´t block all Europe.

          • I have to agree with Peter on this one, this tablet really should’ve 8gb RAM – unfortunately I ordered a i7 on banggood a month ago and now it’s sent back as being undeliverable (seems the adress was wrong.. On purpose?)
            Should’ve waited for the X3 :/

  14. Does anyone who has ordered from Aliexpress sellers know if it really can take up to 60 days for items to be delivered to the UK?

    • It can , bit it usually doesn’t take that long. Check with your customs.

  15. Hopefully CUBE will add Wacom AES stylus for i9 instead of launch stylus model later.
    And if it be AES stylus then I prefer rechargeble type like Huawei matebook’s stylus if possible.

    PS.if they launch i9 stylus model for real…hope that not use smaller screen than original i9.

  16. A very decent offer, unfortunately it seems that they can’t deliver to Germany. Any chance for a workaround or alternative?
