AllDoCube has upgraded the KNote I looked at a few months ago, gone is the dull 1080p IPS, now replaced with a fully laminated 2560 x 1440p 13.3″ IPS. The Celeron N3450 is also out, replaced with a Core M3-7Y30 7th Gen. Seems there is still no word from Intel on the 8th Gen Core M3-8Y30 if it’s ever coming.
The RAM has also been upgraded to 8GB from 6GB and it has a 256GB SSD, not eMMC 5.1 like the KNote. While all these upgrades sound great the issues I encountered on the Knote still remain. No stylus support and only one port, a USB 3.1 port is a huge downside to this machine. If only they added stylus + at least one USB 3.0 port? The naming system Cube has now is bad, call a device a note without stylus support. And what’s the 8 stand for over the Knote? 8GB of RAM? The tablet is currently listed on Gearbest.com but no word on the release date.
I also hope they boosted those weak speakers from the KNote. An interesting device or one to pass on? I’m on the fence with this one, I’m all for the spec which is great and the fully laminated 2560 x 1440 should be really nice to use if bright enough.
