Update #3: It’s the Surbook Pro, I posted on this months ago but we heard no more on it from Chuwi. It has 12″ Surface Pro 3 screen. 8GB of RAM and yes it has an M.2 SSD hatch on the back. It’s all covered in this hands-on video of the prototype. It’s going to be an Indiegogo crowdfunded tablet. Thanks, adskan for jogging my memory Chuwi had us believe it was a laptop at first.
- 2160 x 1400 12″ screen (OGS)
- 64GB eMMC + M.2 2242 SSD slot
- 8GB DDR4 2133Mhz RAM
- Windows 10 Home
- Stylus support
- Front facing speakers
- USB 3.0 x 2, Type-C USB 3.1
- 125-degree kickstand
- Optional keyboard & stylus
Update #2. It’s a tablet, 12″ two USB 3.0 ports and type-c. 8GB of RAM and Gemini Lake. So the Surbook Pro 2-in-1? Surbook 2? I hope it has a fully laminated 3:2 screen but at 12″ there is high chance it will be, Surface Pro or maybe the sharp IPS 12.6 2880 x 1920? I’ll post more once known. But the first spoiler said up to 1TB storage, so it must be configurable up to 1TB? I highly doubt a tablet would have an M.2 SSD hatch, but it would be great to have and a first.

Update: The below tweet pretty much confirms it is the Lapbook Pro, as it’s a laptop. But not the Lapbook SE.
Well it's not the SE :/ But let's see what they will bring out in the coming days. pic.twitter.com/KWMfhMdAbK

Chuwi recently posted this tweet below. 8GB of RAM, Gemini Lake with up to 1TB SSD. Meaning it will have a SATA3 M.2 slot for SSD upgrades and finally the much wanted 8GB of DDR4 RAM. Could this finally be the Lapbook Pro 14″ slim bezel laptop with type-c charging? Or the Lapbook SE with 8GB of RAM (Currently the best Gemini Lake laptop I’ve reviewed)

Another thought is maybe a tablet? The Surbook Pro 2 still hasn’t seen the light of day, now it could be on the way with an upgradable SSD slot? That seems unlikely they would release a tablet with an SSD hatch. Maybe a new Hi13 model with that Surface Book 3000 x 2000 screen. This something I would like to see again is this great screen in more tech from China but as a fully laminated panel.
Another guess of mine is the 2880 x 1920 sharp panel, it’s coming in the new Teclast X6 and often they share the same ODM’s. What do you think it is? Lapbook Se with 8GB finally? Either way this is good news.
