Jumper EZBook X4 Gemini Lake EZBook 3L Pro Successor

Thanks to TheGiolly for pointing this one out, Jumper’s Official Aliexpress store has just listed the EZbook X4, it’s basically the EZbook 3L Pro with the new Gemini Lake N4100, 2.4Ghz, DDR4 RAM but only 4GB.

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]
