Chuwi Hi12 – Benchmarks, Screen And Thoughts So Far

After my unboxing and first hands on with the Chuwi Hi12 I felt the screen brightness just wasn’t enough on the 2160 x 1440 Samsung PLS panel, nothing like how I remembered it to be on my Surface Pro 3. Luckily the brightness being dimmed a little was due to Intel’s graphics power saving settings. Disabling it pushes the max brightness now to just over 302 cd/m2 which is better. I also...[Read More]

Didn’t expect this on to arrive until after Chinese Spring festival and New Years. My Chuwi Hi12 arrived today, it’s Chuwi’s new large 12: tablet and the first tablet outside of Microsoft to use the 12″ 2160 x 1440 screen the Surface Pro 3 uses. What’s special about the panel? Well its a 3:2 ratio panel, has a 2160 x 1440 res and 216 PPI. So looks sharp. I got this un...[Read More]

The first non-Microsoft tablet to ship with the Surface Pro 3’s panel, the Chuwi Hi12 is now in stock at according to an email I just received. Normally BG is very good with stock levels and shipping times. So they claim it ships in 4-7 working days. Must be due to Chinese Spring Festival delays.

Chuwi Hi12 Twitter Launch Event (Updated)

Update 28th: Nothing we didn’t already know from the Twitter posts. The unit is up for sale for $299, but we know GearBest has it for $50 less so really it’s $250. Maybe the $299 is Chuwi’s Amazon USA price? (Chuwi are now selling in the US via Amazon) It’s safe to say it was just a little publicity stunt to get some Twitter followers on their new account. In a first for a ...[Read More]

Chuwi Hi12 Stylus, Black (Basic) Version and Release Date

Chuwi’s new 2160 x 1440 Surface Pro 3 screen tablet the Hi12 is also coming in dark grey I found looking online today (Nice move Chuwi) I was a bit disappointed in the earlier press images of the Hi12 in white & gold. I don’t mind white, but I think black looks more professional and less iPad Pro clone to me. Online retailer GearBest has the release date set as the 28th of January,...[Read More]

Chuwi Hi12 Keyboard Pictured?

I’ve been searching high and low for an image of the dock for the up and coming Chuwi Hi12. Finally came across this image: Since the tablet is a large 12″ this gives Chuwi plenty of space for a large keyboard and touchpad. What I don’t understand is where is the touchpad? There looks to be none and those hinge joints look a bit odd. I wonder if this is the official keyboard or s...[Read More]
