The screen is a fully laminated 2560 x 1600 IPS panel with 2.5D glass, for some reason the brightness Chuwi toned down.

Chuwi Hi9 Air’s 4G/LTE Modem Supports Common EU Bands

Originally I thought they would be covering just the Chinese LTE bands like the Alldocube X1 & Voyo i8 Max. Both of those models with the same MediaTek 10 Core Helio X20 have different modems, the Chinese Helio X20 modem. Only LTE band 1 & 3 supported which are used in Europe but not by everyone, at least here in Spain, it works for me. But the Chuwi Hi9 Air is looking like the one people ...[Read More]

Chuwi’s New Mini PC – The HiGame

Chuwi is getting back to the Mini PC market, but this time with a rather powerful one. Not a weak Apollo Lake or Gemini Lake SoC, but the new 8th Gen Intel Core i5 8305G. Based on Kaby Lake-G it’s a very interesting chipset that combines both an Intel CPU and an AMD dedicated GPU on one die. The GPU is a Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics, which is around 30% to 40% faster than a Nvidia 1050. The ...[Read More]

So the full specs (almost) are now known for the MediaTek Helio X20 powered Chuwi Hi9. So we know it has a 10.1″ 2560 x 1600 fully laminated screen, maybe the same exact panel used in the Teclast Master T10. And that the build is metal, apart from the top antenna strip from before. But new info from Chuwi shows it will ship with Android 8.0 out of the box which will be the first Chinese tabl...[Read More]

Chuwi Hi9 Air – 10.1″ With Helio X20 & 4G Dual SIM

The Chuwi Hi9 Air went back to the drawing board it seems, I always thought it was going to be 8.4″ tablet like the Hi9. But now it’s 10.1 inches still the same 2560 x 1600 resolution, so 16:10 aspect ratio and yes it’s fully laminated. Since it’s now 10.1-inches shouldn’t it be called the Chuwi Hi10 Air? The interesting part is the chipset is a MediaTek Helio X20, de...[Read More]

Chuwi Corebook To Get 8GB of RAM

Chuwi just recently posted on their twitter, if they pass $100,000 mark they will be upgrading for free the CoreBook’s RAM from 6GB to 8GB putting it then inline with competitors Core M3-7Y30 tablets. The current money raised is $80,000, so 20k short but I can see them reaching this goal. I hope the next move is to make the 128GB eMMC a SATA3 SSD instead, at least like what we have in the Cu...[Read More]

The smaller version of the Chuwi Surbook has arrived for my unboxing and review. The Surbook Mini is only 10.8 inches and uses the Microsoft Surface 3 screen.
