Teclast X6 Pro – $499 Core M3 2-In-1 Windows 10 Tablet

Teclast X6 Pro – $499 Core M3 2-In-1 Windows 10 Tablet

Teclast has a new tablet coming, the X6 Pro. It’s another 2-in-1 with a type cover style keyboard. It has 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD drive. Runs Windows 10 Home. The screen is the main feature, 12.6″ 2880 x 1920 fully laminated PLS/IPS screen. This is the same screen seen in the Voyo Vbook i5 I reviewed. It’s a really nice panel, with a 3:2 aspect ratio which is great. It was by far the best thing about the Vbook i5, which had a horrible type cover keyboard ruining it. I hope Teclast has that sorted, I have faith they wouldn’t make that mistake like Voyo.

The tablet has Intel wireless AC, BT 4.0, Type-C and I can see one USB 3.0 port in the image. It’s powered by the older Intel Core M3-7Y30. I was hopeful it would have the new 8th gen Core M3 8100Y but it seems Teclast either didn’t wait for the new CPU or maybe the Intel 14nm SoC supply issue is to blame for the 7th gen chip?

It looks to also support a stylus and has a multi-position kickstand. All up it does look interesting, what do you think? Another cheaper Surface Pro style alternative. And normally Teclast’s quality is one of the better ones it should be decent. One for my to review list.

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. I can already foresee Chuwi’s reply : a Hi13 update with 8 GB / 256 GB SSD (the new standard), their famous 13,5″ screen, and a 8th gen Intel Processor. BAM !!!

  2. I wonder if the stylus is the pressure-sensitive type used in F5 and F6 Pro and not the pointer-style thing that they used in some products? If it is, It’d also be interesting to see if the Voyo vbook stylus works on it, and if Teclast’s works on the Voyo, perhaps Chuwi’s too. Goodix stylus tech is used more and more commonly. The AAAA batteries are a pain though. Energizer charges silly money for them in Australia.

  3. Still waiting for a budget (450-500USD) chinese 2-in-1 alternative to the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 12.5. For some reason all of these budget ~12 inch laptops surpass the 1.3 kg mark when attached to their keyboards/cover which is not confortable to carry around for a long time. The Xiaomi is 1 kg, super snappy but sadly lacks touch screen and consequently dettachable screen. If you can get one of these 12 inch 2-in-1 laptops to a total weight of 1 kg you’ll have a winner, specially if you pair it to a core m3 processor and 8 gb of ram. Could this be that one?

  4. If its got a backlit keyboard this will be perfect for my needs 🙂

  5. At gearbest you can see price floating between 540 – 650usd so be prepared that 499 is just for 11.11…

  6. AliiExpress specs recite a 5000 mAh battery. Small battery, and no LTE … I’ll pass, but it’s close call for $499 for the 11.11 sale.

    • it’s 5000mah at 7.6v, usually mahs are rated at 3.8= 10000mah using the “classic measurements”

      • are you sure?
        here on Gearbest, on the Teclast F6 pro, sporting the very same hardware (both battery and cpu), they declare 4-5h battery life
        gearbest.com/laptops/pp_1245434.html

  7. It looks like full sized USB ports in the picture! Wow, very nice. With the Core M, I hope they can give it a decent battery life. I still like my trusty old Chuwi Hi12, and just couldn’t quite leave it for the Teclast F5 due to battery life. Needs all the things other people are saying, fully laminated, etc, and a fair price point, not unrealistic, but not above brand name products that essentially have a warranty where these basically do not. (If they have one, then please explain the $$$ you will spend getting it fixed to me and how much you saved.)

  8. let’s hope for
    _a decent battery that can last at least 10h
    _multiple usb-c 3.1 (with video out and power-in, so if one fails after 2 years…you have all of the funcion from the other)
    _good keyboard and touchpad
    _good touch and stylus support
    _at least 400nits so you can use it as a travel laptop even outside

    • I know that screen can do over 400nits so that’s one thing we can tick off the list (If Teclast of course runs it at max brightness)

      10 hours run time is highly doubtful, in my experience the 7Y30 has always been around 6 hours sadly with all tech including the Surface Pro 4

  9. This looks like a hot one, and I agree that Teclast is increasingly the go-to brand over its local rivals. Well done to them. Looking forward to Chris’ review in due course.

    • 90% sure I will order this one once I can. It looks good.

  10. Let’s hope it’s an 11/11 special. 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD, and a 3K IPS laminated panel. Teclast blasts past Chuwi and the other Shenzen players. The only thing missing is LTE., and info on the battery. A 3K panel would need 8k mAh for decent run time.
