Update: The Chuwi Hi9 Pro is already shipping out, my unit went today but I ordered it with DHL Express shipping. So It should be here on Monday so look for the review or hands-on early next week. There are just two days left at this deal price of $139.99 before it increases to $169.99.
This one is a great deal if you’re looking for a new fully laminated, 4G tablet and don’t need the absolute best in gaming performance or want to spend a lot. Chuwi’s new 8.4″ tablet with a JDI OGS 2560 x 1600 screen, stock Android 8.0 Oreo. 3GB of Ram and 32GB eMMC + MicroSD support will be only $139.99 from the 6th of August to the 12th. This is down from the normal price of $169.99 and for the spec a very good price.
The tablet has dual SIM LTE, with 4G bands: 4G: B1 2100MHz,B2 1900MHz,B20 800MHz,B3 1800MHz,B5 850MHz,B7 2600MHz,B8 900MHz,TDD B40 2300MHz.
There is an earpiece in there so, in theory, can be used even as an extra large mobile. It has a mobile chipset in it.
And it also has GPS support and FM Radio, Wireless AC and BT 4.2. So as you can see with a decent screen, MediaTek Helio X20 ten-core CPU and for the price, it’s great, but from experience, I know that the GPU Mali-T880 MP4 handles PUBG on low settings okay with playable framerates, BUT it can lag at times with demanding games like that one. It’s not always the smoothest. And there is no HDMI out which is a same. I’ve got one coming so expect a review of it in the next week or two.
But if you’re in the market for a new small tablet this one should be taken into consideration definitely considering others with the same spec as the Alldocube X1 sell for much more. See my Alldocube X1 review to get an idea of what to expect, it is almost the same tablet. Same CPU and screen, but the Chuwi Hi9 Pro will have more LTE bands and a larger battery.
The deal is live on the site soon, but I think only a small amount will be sold at that price, maybe only 100 to 200 units.
