(Update: Now Live!) AllDoCube X – Indiegogo Just $219

Update: The Indiegogo campaign is now live here, it’s only $219 USD, but limited units at this price. This has the same exact screen as the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 that costs 3 times the amount. So it should look pretty impressive this screen it uses.

AllDoCubes latest MediaTek 8176 tablet the X with its 2560 x 1600, 10.5″ Samsung Super AMOLED panel has a price for early adopters on Indiegog. It’s will be first on sale for those that sign up for $219 USD, then the normal retail price will be $269. The crowdfunding campaign is here and it starts on the 8th of August. The AllDoCube is a promising looking Android 8.1 tablet with that fully laminated screen and the following key specs:

  • MediaTek MTK8176 six-core SoC with PowerVR GX6250 GPU
  • 4GB RAM, 64GB eMMC
  • AKM Hi-Fi DAC for improved audio
  • MicroSD slot
  • Fingerprint reader
  • 6,9mm thin
  • Type-C port, charging, data and HDMI out
  • 8000mAh battery + Pump Express 2.0 12v 1.5A quick charging
  • 8MP front and rear cameras
  • Unibody metal build
  • Wireless AC, BT 4.2

So on paper, it looks promising only missing GPS and I’m pleased they didn’t go with a Helio X20 ten core SoC. A Snapdragon 636 or 660 would have been better of course. But for $219 it’s looking like it could be one of the best tablets around for the price. And this screen is rumored to be the one the Galaxy Tab S4 might ship with when released. Below are some photos of the tablet.

 

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. No LTE or even 3G? No LTE, me no buy. Having to crowdfund new tablets means ADCube cannot self-fund, which Chuwi and Teclast can, not to mention the CN2. Sorry to be a pessimist, but if ADCube’s past is predictive, this will be surpassed by Chuwi and Teclast by the time it ships.

  2. Ugh, I’m waiting for tablets with stylus. The wait is real. Do you have a recommendation (or future recommendation), @chris?

  3. Another plus for this tablet is that xda developers are partnering with the company to start a development program in the near future once the device launches. Also, this device will have project Treble.

    • So with some luck, the kernel sources will be released. Which means that this tablet could be the thing to get. I still think I’ll wait a bit until we are sure about that. An unlocked bootloader is nice, but without kernel sources… Well, hopefully XDA can get AllDoCube to release them. It would probably be a first for a Chinese tablet with MediaTek SoC.

  4. Seems great, even have a pretty good GPU. The only problem would be that it’s a MediaTek chip, which means that even if the tablet is great and even if AllDoCube make an update or five, the GPL will be broken and no kernel sources will be released. So most likely, it will be stuck at the original Android 8.1 forever and no chance of custom ROMs or LineageOS et cetera.
    However, for just over $200, beggars can’t be choosers 😉

    • Yes, I imagine like all of these tablets it will remain on 8.1 forever. But then like you say for the price… I’m also happy to see that they haven’t gone with the Helio X20 again. When I first saw this screen was a SAMOLED 2560 x 1600 panel. I thought use Snapdragon or the MTK8176, not the Helio X20! I hope someone other than just Lenovo and Xiaomi also uses Snapdragon chips with this screen.

  5. Looks appetizing, indeed 😉
    Maybe a good replacement for my Mom’s old Chuwi Hi10 Pro 😀 (and I’m serious)

    • Definitely, a tablet to take on the Teclast Master T10 and it should be better. I’m looking forward to reserving one for $219.

      • Same here: will be a perfect gift for her birthday (eventually, if it’s out before the end of October 🙁 )

        • Yes, no word on the release date normally it’s a few months 🙁

      • Would be nice to see your opinion on that “hifi DAC” too. Very few devices pay much attention to sound quality. Got a good pair of headphones @chris?
