Upcoming Teclast X98 Pro comes with great specs running Windows 10

Among all the Chinese tablet brands it is Telecast who already have proven to make good quality products in the past and seem to get their specs right. The upcoming Telecast X98 Pro runs along the same high value road with a Windows 10 install.

Anyone who has knowledge of Telecast products will already recognise the Telecast T98 from last year, the T98 Pro builds on that earlier model with a bump in specs to boost performance and usability.

A quad-core Intel Atom X5 Cherry Trail Z8500 CPU lies at the heart of the Telecast T98 Pro with 4GB RAM and 64GB of onboard memory. Storage can also be expanded on with the use of a micro SD card slot. A 9.7-inch display means for a portable device while a resolution of 2048 x 1536 should allow to you make the most of the panel and fill it with all the tabs and apps you want.

Although the specifications are quite robust, one of the most interesting factors here is the fact the Pro runs Windows 10 right out the box. With its new tablet-centric navigation features Windows 10 is a powerful tool for the Chinese tablet.

Others specifications includes HDMI connection, Bluethooth 4.0, a 5.0MP rear camera and a 2.0MP front-facing camera that should be enough for video conferences, the device specs sheets also includes the ability to reproduce videos in the 4K resolution, there is a speed sensor and also a gravity sensor present in the package, everything powered by a 8000mAh battery.

The overall dimensions of the Teclast X98 are of 240mm x 169mm x 7.9mm and the Tablets constructions mixes plastic with some metal finish. The device may be officially launched in September but so far the specs seems impressive, as well the possibility to have a quite portable desktop with you. The pricing info isn’t published here but we don’t expect anything below $200 for these specs, and the segment, where the competition isn’t hard as it is for smartphones. Leave your opinion about the new Teclast X98.

      • steelicon

        Thanks @inquirercet ! 🙂

  • MaxPower

    I’ve always been a “pro choice” liberal freak, but seriously…Windows? what’s wrong with you people?!

    • Dante

      Hey if it would have core m it would be an interesting buy (emulator machine)

    • balcobomber25

      I’ve actually been using Windows 10 for a week now on my work laptop. It’s actually not bad, it is a complete and shameless rip off of just about every Linux distro of the past ten years but it works a lot better than 8 and 7 did. Only thing I hate about is the forced updates and the fact that is still very resource heavy (which Windows on a PC will always be compared to Linux).

      • MaxPower

        one of my friend is a fanatic of Windows.

        I was at his house the other day and he was showing me his new Win10 with such a pride (he was almost getting emotional).

        besides the jokes i made about the “new” features like Multi Desktop… i have to say that the OS isn’t not bad, it’s finally user friendly (with WiN8 i never understood what hell was going on).

        i can’t stand the same BS of Microsoft though: We were on a Skype call the other day until he mysteriously hanged up. He showed up half hour later saying that the computer rebooted automatically to apply an update. Oh boy!

        • balcobomber25

          Those auto updates are starting to piss me off. The other day i got to work and needed access to a file for a meeting in 30 minutes. Windows decided it was time to update (you have no say) and it took like an hour.

          • Aa

            There is advanced option that can show notification when restart is needed. Settings -> Updates -> Advanced options -> Choose how updates are installed.

            • balcobomber25

              I have that checked off already, the problem is the first time you go shutdown your computer and go to start up again the updates decide its time to install.

            • Aa

              Ok, I see..

          • Marius Cirsta

            I have to say this is what bugs me most about the new Windows, the updates… they install whenever they feel like and seem to take forever … Linux updates are much more reasonable and easier to do…
            Also I still find Windows isn’t really ready for tablet usage, not even Windows 10 I’d say …. And it’s not as light and fluent as Linux

            • highwind

              So, where is the problem installing Linux (or whatever else you want) on this tablet?
              It got an x86/x64 with x64 UEFI bootloader just like every other current PC…

            • Marius Cirsta

              Well the only problem would be secure boot if you can’t disable the damn thing. But I think even then it’s possible to install some Linux distros like Ubuntu that are signed with MS keys.

      • About auto update it can be turn it off only in pro/enterprise edition.

  • Iliana ZR

    If this tablet is able to run some version of Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, then I’m interested. I own a Teclast tablet and after years, is running beautiful still, no problems at all, so I guess I can trust in their quality again.

    • MinusPlusDivide

      It can run PS or Illustrator or LR.

  • tingeling21

    It’s time to put 8GB RAM in Windows tablets, especially now when Windows 10 added support for RAM compression!

    • Dis

      What is RAM compression?

      • tingeling21

        Benefits of RAM compression: On multi-core, multithreaded CPUs, some benchmarks show performance improvements of over 50%.

        And with this technology, more RAM is recommended!

        Read more here:
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_memory_compression

        • Dis

          So it needs to be written into the OS or software individually? Or you need specific new RAM for it?

          • Arkadiusz Miśkiewicz

            In software – OS (or hardware). Basically it keeps swap in compressed form in ram instead of pushing it into slow storage (hdd). And if you have more ram then you don’t need swap at all! So this only helps cases where there is no enough ram (and where currently hdd swap is still needed/used).

  • Öysan Kulbay

    Definitely getting one. Fantastic products and this should be no exception.

  • Dis

    CPU is 4 core 1.44-2.24 GHz for those who want to know. LPDDR3 and a “Scenario Design Power” of 2W.

    • TDP is around 4-4.2w

      • Dis

        Thanks. It’s funny how they try and word such things to avoid outright giving a TDP.

  • Crake

    What about 4G connection???

    • steelicon

      Supposedly Q4 2015 or maybe even next year. Looking forward to that model. Hope it includes a DC power pin along with the microUSB port.

  • thunderlord

    I have an aliexpress account with 30/139 and 50/199 coupons. Anybode wants?

    • Natsumi

      depends XD

  • Rob

    Give this a month or so and Telcast will release the dual boot version (android 5.0). This is when I may go for this. This is a tactic they have used in the past, so shouldn’t be any different this time around.

    • MinusPlusDivide

      Yeah, the same tactic. The dual boot os tablets are pretty popular in China too.

    • hans

      have a look at gizchina.de , where christopher has a test of a onda dualboot and android looks pretty bad on there, i dont think android is made for intel chips

      • Rob

        That’s just Onda, got one now and the software is pure shite. They produce good hardware and that’s it. Used a few teclast tablets and they have all been very smooth and stable as have the Chuwi and cube ones.

  • highwind

    Upcoming?
    This is out for several days by now… check techtablets.com or YouTube for unboxing/review

  • CoinPhone

    I have a Teclast X98 Air 3G dual boot for nearly a year now. The Google installation is broken. Camera is upside down and self-shifting. Any 3D game will crash the tablet in just seconds. Teclast promised an update to fix all these that never arrived. No more Teclast. One is enough.

  • Burs

    I’m shocked no one mentioned security issues on Windows 10 by now. Tablet itself is super great, but Microsoft spying on your every single keystroke is beyond any comment. So here’s a GIF for tech savvy people thinking it’s a very serious issue: http://i.imgur.com/gfFRfiR.gif

    • kzm

      don’t you think that previous version of windows do the same thing? even google and apple do the same thing..why dont you ask those “tech savvy” who make those gif do same on android/chromeos or ios/osx?

      • Burs

        I don’t care about google and apple. And no, previous Windows versions don’t do that, at least not until now and not so obvious. But a week ago Microsoft started rolling out updates for Windows 7 and 8 which introduce the same “security features”. Google it if you want, and mark those updates as hidden.

        • kzm

          It is still there in previous version only that you don’t know or you just ignore it. Eg “recently open file or program in W7” how do you think W7 know you open that file or program recently? If you read W7 Privacy Statement they collect pretty much everything..So why afraid with W10

          • Burs

            Look, I’m not a Windows user from yesterday, and I’ve been around since 3.11 version (pre-Windows 95). I’m certified in dozens of different Microsoft platforms and technologies, so I know a great deal regarding Windows. I even develop Windows apps for a living, so you don’t have to teach me something you believe it’s right, but in fact it’s wrong. The example you provided involves just a windows registry where recently opened files are stored. That’s not spying, and it’s stored on your hard drive only. Windows 10 spies on pretty much everything, and it’s phoning home all of it (and for 3rd party use too!). Now this is completely off-topic. Continue your research on google if you’re interested any further.

            • kzm

              Lol…

    • hans

      you want to tell me that google( android) does not want to know you ????

      • Burs

        No, I didn’t want to tell you anything about google (android). Please read again what I wrote.

    • Oscar

      Thats scary
