Chuwi Hi9 – 2560 x 1600 OGS 8.4″ Android 7.0 Tablet

Chuwi Hi9 – 2560 x 1600 OGS 8.4″ Android 7.0 Tablet

Chuwi’s back with a new tablet, this one’s called Chuwi Hi9. With a fully laminated 8.4″ 2560 x 1600 JDI screen with 2.5D glass edges. The chipset powering this Android 7.0 tablet is a MediaTek MTK8173, quad core with 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM and PowerVR GX6250. It’s got 64GB of eMMC 5.1 storage (Great) and has a MicroSD card slot. And micro USB 2.0, but no HDMI out. The battery is 5000mAh which is decent for this size of tablet.

I’ve tested a few tablets with this chipset now and it should be fast and run games with playable frame rates. But it’s certainly not the faster chipset, I would have like to have seen the Hexacore MTK8176 instead which is slightly faster. And I hope the ROM is stock.

It’s selling for $179.99 currently on flash sale and can be picked up from who are selling it exclusively for the first month.

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. I got a question. Is the fixed hardware capable of fitting for the increasingly advanced operation system ? Or the stuck will be a problem if not solved before it really happens. I visit and want to find a solution.

  2. When will we see Chinese tablets with Oreo?

  3. Banggood has this listed for preorder at $189.99; looks to be a good tablet

  4. Same proc in Amazon Fire (2017) ?
    But I.m looking for size like this, hope it work with pen…

  5. This looks like its made from plastic, I would sooner have the Teclast T8 as that also looks nicer than this. Hope Chuwi have improved their speakers.

  6. Android 7.0? That’s a shame. How about windows 10 and Intel?! It would be the great tablet for me – small bezels, 8,4′ fully laminated display, appolo lake… Perfect!

  7. Android 7.0? that’s a shame. I wonder if they’ll ever provide updates to Marshmallow?

    • Marshmallow is Android 6. Android 7 is Nougat, which is newer than marshmallow. Maybe you meant Android 8 Oreo?

    • Just been looking at the above link and Chuwi have the specs of the MTK8173 as 2*A73 and 2*A53, that is clearly wrong as it has A72 cores!

      • Other sites mention it has a MT8176. Wich has A72’s. Maybe Chris got confused.
