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 Bangood.com
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.
