The tablet market is slowing: in recent months, we noticed that the major manufacturers have gradually diverted attention from this category, because the profit margins especially among the low-cost airlines have become more subtle and even users have lost interest , conquered by the versatility of hybrid 2-in-1 convertible and ultralights. Chinese companies, however, do not give up and continue to crank out new models, some of them really interesting.
About a month ago, we told you about Chuwi HI12 (remember?), A tablet that would come on the market in a version with dual-OS, Windows and Android. That day seems to come, so that Gearbest opened reservations: until 28 January, visitors can book a Chuwi HI12 at a price of 234.64 euro in the “Basic” and “Deep Gray” (silver), with free delivery in Italy . This is not a dual-OS tablet, but a version with Windows 10, because the variant with Android is expected in the coming weeks. Deliveries will start at the end of pre-orders, so by the end of January.
We can confirm, however, all the technical specifications: Chuwi HI12 integrates a quad-core Intel Atom Z8300-x5 from 1.44GHz, with Intel Graphics Gen8 Intel graphics, 4GB of RAM (although the chip supports up to 2 GB) and 64GB of internal memory expandable for another 64GB with a microSD card. His “piece” is strong, however, the display, an IPS screen 12-inch (2160 x 1440 pixels) with a 2-megapixel front camera and a 5 megapixel camera on the back. The tablet has a massive 11,000 mAh battery and also comes with a micro HDMI port.
Regret the absence of a coordinated keyboard, especially considering the large screen and its size (296 x 202 x 8.9 mm to 800 grams), but you can just buy a Bluetooth keyboard (the tablet comes with WiFi and Bluetooth) to increase your productivity on the go. We would point out that the frame is aluminum, not plastic, a detail not just.
