Chuwi’s latest tablet, the Chuwi Hi13 is powered by an Apollo Lake N3450, 4GB of RAM with 64GB eMMC is due to be released on the 20th this month (Next week). It will initially be priced at $369 USD. It supports an optional dock with two full-sized USB ports and an optional pressure sensitive HiPen H3 stylus. The HiPen H1 will also work on the tablet according to Chuwi.
The Hi13 will sport the Surface Book’s 3000 x 2000 13.5″ screen, a premium IPS 3:2 ratio panel with 267 PPI which is sharp considering it’s 13.5-inches. The Hi13 has quad AAC speakers, 24W fast charging, a full metal housing and USB type-c supporting both data and video out. Other confirmed specs include 10,000 mAh battery, Windows 10 Home with Ubuntu OS support (So we should be able to install Linux on this?) And dual band wireless. No mention on dual OS at this point or if the motherboard has an empty M.2 SSD slot like the Lapbook 14.1, since it won’t be as easy to open up my guess is no, but I’ll check it when I get hold of one.
