Chuwi Hi13 Giveaway & New Hi13 Promo Video

Chuwi’s Emily has just posted in the forums they have an up and coming giveaway for the Hi13. They will be giving away 3 units of the new Hi13 model. Looks like it’s easy enough to enter. You just have to leave a comment on the giveaway page, follow them on social media and you’re in the draw. It’s an international Chuwi Hi13 giveaway so open to everyone.

I’ve got one ordered and hope to have it when I get back to Spain in a week. If you’re new to this model, it’s a 2-in-1 13.5″ Apollo Lake N3450 tablet with the Surface Book 3000 x 2000 3:2 ratio IPS panel, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, wireless AC, 10,000mAh battery and optional active 1024 pressure level stylus and keyboard dock with USB ports.

The Chuwi Hi13 is up for pre-order at the following retailers for $349 – | |

They have also posted a new video outlining the features of the tablet and giving us a better look at the design:

  1. Hi Chris, i asked did Chuwi (official facebook page) if the display is laminated with anti-reflection … the answer was: I am sorry, it is not ….. 🙁

  2. Hi Chris, news about your Hi13 ?!?
    we’re all waiting for your review (and for the dual Os with Android) to buy it or not

  3. Apollo Lake N3450 seems to be new version of Intel Atom?

  4. Hope to have the same additional SSD slot

  5. I like it, but i’m curious about its stylus. Is that have same quality with chuwi h12?

  6. What does it mean “dual chip stylus”?

  7. I’m curious about the heating problem while gaming or using heavy programs on this tablet.

    On Chuwi Hi12, it was like one of the best tablets out there when it comes to cooling system.

    Looking forward to your review Chris. Maybe you can test out those important details.

  8. Chris you said there will be a the launch sale. Will be there any sale?

  9. Hmm $349 that’s quite an increase over my Hi12 I got for like $230. I’ll wait till it’s $299 😀 even if it means waiting till 11.11, by then it will be the Hi14 lol. Chris will you have a giveaway of it? I trust your giveaways more than this one.

    • I’m not sure, unless Chuwi gets in touch with me about a giveaway. I’ll have to hang onto my Hi13 when i get it for any updates on Dual OS or Linux flashing etc. I would really like to see it also run Android 6.0+ Or Remix OS 3.0 and Windows, hopefully after the release, we might be able to flash it to Dual OS like the Hi12.

      • My understanding might be off here but I’ve long held that the reason Android on Intel chipsets has been frozen at 5.x is because Intel stopped providing support and development. At one point Intel was basically providing all the hard work in porting the drivers and OS because they saw “dual boot” tablets as a way to get Atom chips out in the market. This is also why (to my knowledge) there is no Core M device that is dual boot, Intel does not provide the drivers or OS porting resources that they did for Android 5.x on Atoms. As Intel is essentially abandoning Atom for tablets I’m beginning wonder if we have seen the last of true dual boot systems as I question if any of these individual OEMs (chuwi, cube, teclast, etc.)) have the chops or desire to do the work.

        I also suspect this is why the Hi13 isn’t dual boot, I get they have a history of adding it later with the Hi12 but again, that was on an Atom chip which had official support from intel, to my knowledge Intel does not officially support it on N series CPUs or Core-M and it’s no simple task to simply install android on a completely different chipset.

        • The Teclast Tbook 16 Power has an Android 6.0 ROM on it. It was the first Android 6.0 Dual OS tablet, I hope it’s just a matter of them sorting out drivers and eventually, we will see a Remix OS or Android Dual Boot release. Chuwi have already stated it will support & boot Ubuntu on the Hi13.

          • as far as drivers are concerned……Android is running on a Linux Kernel, so this should not be a huge problem
            besides x86 code is much more “standard” than ARM code
            maybe it’s less optimized, but it runs

          • Teclast Tbook 16 also runs on an Atom chip though, unlike the Hi13 w/c runs on Apollo Lake (not Atom chip).
