Chuwi Hi9 Air Now Up For Preorder For $199 At Banggood (Update)

Update: 19th April. Chuwi have just posted and Bangood that orders will now ship on the 28th of April due to a delay in production.

Chuwi’s latest Android 8.0 tablet the Hi9 Air, is now up from preorder over at for $239,(scratch that it’s now $199 from the HK warehouse)  it seems they must have exclusive rights to sell it first as I don’t see it listed anywhere else. This 10 core Helio X20 has 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, an 8000mAh battery, Mali-T880 graphics and a fully laminated Sharp 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 16:10 aspect ratio screen. It also has dual 4G LTE SIM support which is quite rare, Wireless AC, BT 4.0 MicroSD and GPS. The body is only 7.9mm thin, made of an alloy and has a front 2MP and 13MP Samsung autofocus camera with LED flash.

It looks promising based on these specs, I’ll be sure to review this one, so keep an eye out for my review in a few weeks time.  It’s due to ship on the 19th according to the website.

  1. Did anyones order shipped out from banggood?
    They delayed the order to the 28.4 then to 15.5

    • I got lucky mine did ship as far as I know, the tracking number has no updates, however.

      • Banggood really fucked up this time.
        Order more then month ago.

  2. $219.99 now…

  3. Hey, i just registered to ask this (but am a regular visitor):

    Can you check and verify, if it has Project Treble support? This would be super important for me and i think many many others..

    It would mean amazing custom ROM support, and no dependence on updates from chuwi. This would the perfect tablet, without any rival!

    Another thing: Are there any good bluetooth keyboard cases/covers on the market, preferable with german QWERTZ layout that are usable for casual to medium writing workloads? And maybe even backlight?

    Thanks in advance, and props to this great website! I am a china tech fan and buyer for over 5 years, and this website is hands down the best source despite the numerous competition!


  4. So is this the same screen ratio as Huawei M5 8 as this looks considerably ‘squarer’ from the pictures?

  5. If you select the HK site, the promotional price is USD 199 …. while the promotion lasts.
