Chuwi Hi9 Pro Android 8.1, 8.4″ 2560 X 1600 4G Tablet

Chuwi Hi9 Pro Android 8.1, 8.4″ 2560 X 1600 4G Tablet

Another new tablet from Chuwi, the Hi9 Pro. Not to be confused with the Hi9 Air and Hi9 I reviewed. This one is yet another Helio X20 tablet. 8.4″ 2560 x 1600 OGS JDI IPS screen I’ve used this screen before and it’s a good one. 4G with dual SIM support + MicroSD. The LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20 & 40 so that covers many counties and I’ll have no issues with 4G in Spain. There is Wireless AC,  BT 4.1 and  GPS. But no HDMI out.

If you don’t know about the MediaTek Helio X20 (MTK6797) well it’s a 10 core CPU (Max speed 2.3Ghz) paired up with a Mali-T880 GPU at 780Mhz and this Hi9 Pro has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of eMMC 4.5.1 storage. The battery is 5000mah in size good for about 4 hours of gaming or 6 hours of video. This is wrapped in a full metal build with 5MP front camera and 8MP rear camera. The OS version is Android 8.1, good to see them step away from Android 7.0.

It’s going to be selling for around $160 USD. So for the price, I think it will be an okay tablet with a very good screen, LTE, and GPS. Just don’t expect it to be as fast as the MTK8176 six core tablets and the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4. And I would have liked to have seen at least a 6000mAh battery.

  1. I know the Chuwi Hi9 Pro USB type-C jack is OTG-enabled because mine works with keyboard and mouse and thumb drive. However, does it have the necessary drivers to plug in an Ethernet adapter to connect to to wired internet such as this one? I bought one to try it but cannot get it to work with my Chuwi tablet.

  2. At the Chuwi board they have advertised a special campaign to launch the new Hi9 Pro tablet at a special price of $ 139.99, starting August 6 and ends August 12

  3. digital compass?

  4. It’s a bit odd they would call it “Pro” when it only has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The price is nice though, wich is bound to drop a bit when it’s out with coupons and such.

  5. truly an interesting tablet if wouldn’t be already marked as discontinue on gearbest. you said it is just released? then either they won’t sell it or they have a huge error in their system
