Chuwi To Release 8GB SurBook Pro Tablet Soon (Updated)

Chuwi To Release 8GB SurBook Pro Tablet Soon (Updated)

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.

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.


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. Do you think that the N4100 it’s an step-foward? I think that a Core M (the classic or the new one) would be much better. I have the original Surbook and I don’t know if I could notice a better performance between the N3450 and the N4100. Also, the screen could support more % of the sRGB

  2. This tablet looks so good, the sad thing is it’s produced in China, but Chuwi is now focused on foreign market, so we can’t buy it in China. By the way, I come from China.:D

  3. looks like the external port offer is good
    Chuwi should have learned how to choose a reliable touch screen
    now I guess it’s all matter of battery size and keyboard cover quality (let’s hope for a backlit cover like the Alldocube
    and let’s hope for a quick time to market as well
    By the way I just put my hands on my girlfrined bran new MacBookAir13 2018…definitely the perfect travel mate, except for the PRICE
    LEt’s hope Chinese manufacturer starts to “clone” the new macbook air

    • I don’t think the keyboard is backlit by the looks of it. If the battery is around 10,000mAh or above we should be able to get around 8 hours out of it with the Gemini Lake N4100.

      Yes that MacBook air is nice I looked at one recently but the price is insane for what it is. I hope the Chinese clone it and also the new iPads. In a year or two, they might get their hands on the exact same screen and build a Windows 10 tablet out of it? Hope so.

      • “the price is insane for what it is”
        Well have you seen the price of houses where Apple is (SF Bay Area)? Their employees need you to help them make their mortgage payments! /s

      • Chuwi SurBook 1st gen was featuring backlit keyboard
        Are they really making a step back or it was just a stripped down pre-production sample?

  4. laminated screen with a fast ssd and this will be a instant upgrade from my current surbook 12.3, larger battery would be a nice bonus as well.
