Teclast F15 – 15.6″ 8GB RAM Gemini Lake Laptop (Updated)

Teclast F15 – 15.6″ 8GB RAM Gemini Lake Laptop (Updated)

Update #5 The price is now known to us, via retailer Gearbest.com it’s selling for $419 with coupon GBNBTCF15 here.

Update #4 The English page is now online on Teclast.com

Update #3 Full specs are now known, they have leaked out on the Russian Teclast F15 page of Teclast.com.Thank you Andraz! Teclast claims it’s a premium 15.6″ laptop in the body of a typical 14″ laptop with large side bezels. It’s 1.8 kilos and a slim 15mm with a mostly metal build.

  • 15.6″ 1080p Fully laminated IPS with 7mm thin size bezels. 82% screen to body ratio.
  • 8GB DDR4 RAM (More than likely 2133Mhz like all other Gemini Lakes reviewed)
  • Rear ports, USB 3.0 x 2, HDMI (Full sized HDMI 2.0A) & MicroSD reader
  • left side D/C 12V 2-3A in for charging and right side 3.5mm jack
  • Type-C port, unknown if it is USB 3.1 spec. More than likely just USB 3.0 due to the D/C charge port.
  • 22mm x 80mm SSD (based on the image, could be 2260)
  • Wireless AC 3165 with BT 4.1
  • 45Wh battery? Good for 7 hours
  • Windows 10 home
  • Backlit keyboard with numerical pad

Now the sweet spot would be upgradable RAM, crossing my fingers it has two SO-DOM slots inside there even if it’s highly unlikely due to costs.

Update #2: Today’s new image tells us it will have 256GB of SSD storage and 8GB of RAM! Also has a numerical keypad and a massive touchpad. Interesting to note I cannot see any USB ports. Looks like 3.5mm and DC in for charging?

Not much is known about this new model, Teclast is only leaking out the details a day at a time via their facebook page. What we do know so far is it’s a Gemini Lake, 15.6″ with thin side bezels and a metal build.

But it’s not hard to guess the rest, I’m certain it will have a fully laminated 1080p screen, Intel Wireless AC 3165, 128GB SSD, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, 3.5mm audio, MicroSD, Mini or Micro HDMI 2.0A and 8GB DDR4 RAM.

On my wishlist for this Teclast F15 laptop:

  • Backlit keyboard, highly likely since the Teclast F7 Plus will have a backlit one.
  • Numberpad keyboard if possible. Confirmed!
  • Type-C USB 3.1 and used for charging only (Like Chuwi Lapbook Pro)
  • 2280 sized SSD slot, very likely the last laptops have been using the larger size.
  • 42Wh+ battery size so it will run for 10 hours+ Current N4100 + 37Wh laptops can do 8-9 hours.
  • Decent speakers (3W x 2 for example)
  • 1.5 kilos or less thin build
  • SO-DIMM slots x2. Upgradable RAM is the next step we need. Like the Xiaomai 6A!
  • Under $330 on launch

Great to see finally a 15.6″ release. We have a lot of 13.3″ and 14.1″ but no bigger models until now. I’m looking forward to this one and will definitely be ordering it once I can. By the way, the F7 Plus is now up for pre-order, that one is 14″ with 8GB of RAM with possibly the same spec as this new F15.

  1. I bought the Teclast F15 laptop from bang good.

    The laptop arrived with the hinge broken and bent. I paid extra for bang good insurance and yet Bang good have only offered me £10 LOLOL.

    I am disgusted!! Terrible company. Total jokers! Why do they have a insurance option?

  2. Hi guys! Can I safely reinstall Windows since the AliExpress vendor tested the unit before sending it out? I’m worries I may lose important drivers I cant recover or download anywhere…

    Thanks!

    John

  3. did anybody consider how he wants to type on the f15?
    check where your palm sits on your current keyboard
    now do an mental visual overlay onto the f15 keyboard
    notice anything?
    half or your right hand will rest on the supersized trackpad while typing

    • Completely just fine… 👍

    • I just saw an old Acer Swift 7 and it has the same oversized pad – I think I am too old fashioned…

  4. So today finally, GB has sent my laptop to me to Slovakia … 👍

    • me too…to Greece , lets see how many days it will be….I say it will be almost a month

      • But not much time! After a long holiday, the Chinese wake up and count for 2 weeks max. 3 via the EU Priority Line … 👍

    • Nice, still no tracking number for me! 🙁

      Still no X6 Pro either.

  5. Can anyone confirm the 22mm x 80mm SSD size?

  6. “22mm x 80mm SSD (based on the image, could be 2260)”

    Which image shows the underside?

    Very tempted to get one of these for testing. They’d make great office machines for our admin staff, but only if they’re decent quality. Are you buying one for review Chris?

    • Yes, I will order one soon and review it. I hope it’s worth my time.

  7. $429 at Gearbest at the moment – another $100 down to $330 and it would be a excellent price to her one.

  8. Gearbest has it now for over $560.
    I’ll wait for better price, though.

    • That’s just too expensive for what it is. When it go down to around $300-350, I’ll probably get it.

  9. when it will on the market?

  10. Sounds promising 🙂

    • It does indeed. I think for a Celeron laptop it tickets all the boxes so far. I mean I would have preferred (Like many) A matte screen. But that’s nothing a decent matte screen protector can’t fix. Type-C USB 3.1 charging would be great and also upgradable RAM.

      Just the normal poor speakers perhaps will be the con.

  11. good luck with teclast!!!!! , cheap and soon in the trash…

    • Never had issues with mine. Still got my X98 Air III running dual boot and my 4-year old using it. Apart from a 2 hours battery life now after 4 years (Battery is very worn) it’s fine. My guess is you had something of their die on you? Sure it can happen it’s a bit of a lottery at times.

  12. Hey Chris! I think i have to disappoint you… if i am right this laptop will have usb c for data and have additional DC charging port, so yeah no usb c charging with this one… Link: http://www.teclast.com/ru/zt/nb/F15/

  13. I guess for western people an Atom based sporting a 15″ is kind of awkward
    I’m looking for a 11-13″, narrow bezels, 3:2 aspect ratio display, twin usb-c type 3.1 (cause all I/O will rely on these port + port replicator, no hdmi out)
    You can buy a port replicator with everything from Gigaethernet to vga, hdmi and card reader for as little as 20-25$ from Aliexpress.
    and I have a bad experience of embedded expansion slot failing even on premium brand, business laptops….

    • We had that Onda Xiaoma 31 I think it was called 13.3″ I reviewed with just 1 USB 3.1 type-c. It comes close to what you want but it also seems Onda haven’t released any new models which is odd.

      I would like a laptop like that but with twin type-C and maybe at least one full-size type-A USB 3.0

      Yes, a type-c port should last longer than even a D/C jack for charging. I’ve had them break on Dell, HP laptops in the past that cost thousands. At least in both cases I was able to replace it myself.
