Teclast X98 Plus II Coming – Just A Minor Redesign?

Teclast X98 Plus II Coming – Just A Minor Redesign?

Teclast has an X98 Plus II model coming soon.  And it looks to me like it’s sadly just a refresh of the design with a new unibody rear alloy housing redesign. The ports are now all on the top of the tablet and the speaker slots look a little different. It’s hard to say if it’s slimmer or not due to Teclast’s history of inaccurate photoshopped images.

The specs are all the same. Same, CPU an Atom X5 Z8300, 4GB of RAM and a 64GB eMMC with Android 5.1 and Windows 10. The same 8000 mAh battery and 2048 x 1536 IPS Retina panel. The rear camera is now just a 2MP unit like the front camera. That’s a downgrade.

I was at least hoping for a fully laminated screen, larger battery maybe or something, anything different? Maybe we are missing that info from the GearBest listing and promo images?

It’s listed at $242, shipping after June 25th.

  1. Hi I am new to this site. Have been following your reviews recently to decide on which Chinese Tablet to buy. Need one clarity if X98 Pro & X98 Plus II are same or different models. Have been trying buy on Aliexpress and am totally confused. Require your sincere suggestion on which is a better Model to buy among the X98’s series. (I am looking at a really good resolution screen as one of my main uses will be watching Movies).
    Thanks for your support in advance !!!

  2. hey! teclast x98 is available at a discounted price at http://goo.gl/t9B32S with free shipping available in any country..

  3. NEVER BUY A PRESALE FROM GEARBEST or you will have it deep in the ass. My 2 cents.

  4. I have an x98 plus ,windows only ver.I watch Chris review and I buy it from Banggood . Is this model support external HDD ? I try to connect a 1TB lenovo & WD ext HDD through otg adapter it didn’t show the drive. But both HDD detected on USB safe remove option. Anybody connect an ext HDD to this tablet ,is it work ?
    Please help me
    Thank you.

  5. The x98 plus has multiple minor problems. Mine x98 doesn’t fully turbo boost, the touchscreen isn’t very responsive with a screenprotector on it.

  6. better cooling to have 1600mhz memory and also have best gpu scores with lower temps?

  7. I hope they changed more than just looks to explain the 50+ usd difference from the 3g version.

    I noticed that the X98 Plus (and partly the 3G version) disappeared from the catalogs of many retailers, I was expecting a refresh. I also think Chinese manufacturers are generally moving away from the ipad style devices since tablet sales worldwide are done and 2-in-1 is what people seem to want more right now.

  8. Hmmmm, I wonder about the new X98 Plus. The camera were 5mp in the first A5C8 models but were changed later in the A6C7 models to 2mp only, so no difference here.

    If they fix the ram from 1066 to 1600 mhz that would be great, if they managed to keep it in the same price range.
