The Pipo T9 Is an 8.9 Inch FHD Octa-core Tablet


Pipo isn’t the most well known brand internationally, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have the potential to put out quality devices. The T9 is an interesting tablet with some eye catching specs.

For starters, there is its Octa-core MediaTek 6592 CPU clocked at 1.7 Ghz, 2GBs of RAM a 13MP back camera and a 2MP camera on the front. It also packs in an impressively large 7200mAh battery and a 1920 x 800 resolution screen. It also includes 32GBs of expandable internal storage.

That screen resolution may seem a little, odd, at first. However, it is the native resolution for a lot of movies, assuming it has software to “remove” the black bars typically seen in a widescreen movie.

It also supports MHL mirroring, internal 3G support with SIM card slot for the WCDMA network (specific frequencies aren’t listed, but Orientdeal says it supports American carriers like T-mobile and AT&T) which will allow you to use it as an oversized phone.

There seems to be some disagreement about the Pipo T9 specs. Some sites lists it as having a 2 Ghz CPU and a 1920 x 1200 display while Orientdeal listed it with the 1.7 Ghz CPU I have listed, but also lists a 1920 x 1200 display. The specs I listed above come from Pipo’s official website.

In China, the tablet is available for the budget conscious price of $250 but is available internationally for the significantly higher but still not unreasonable price of $320. It ships with Android 4.2, thankfully with access to Google Apps built in.

The Pipo T9 seems to pack in a lot of the industry’s favorite features and has more than decent specs, although the screen resolution does appear to leave something to be desired, is it enough to pique your interest?

          I ordered through the site iProTablet last month – reliable and were quick to answer questions – they’re also one of the few resellers I’ve seen to have a 14 day return policy plus doesn’t have any return charge fee, one of the reasons I bought through them

      They are actually decent, I have an M9 & M9 pro and rather happy about both.

      What chinese tablets do you recommend? I heard Pipo and Ainol are decent but luck of the draw. I have owned 2 chinese tablets/smartphones and they broke within 2 months. So in my opinion, Chinese electronics are shit.

    Pipo’s own catalogue shown at the HK fair states 1.7 Ghz so there must be a typo:

    Comparing PIPO P1 with T9 and need remove some confusion:
    Is T9 18 bit color while P1 is 24 bit color?
    Is T9 a PLS display while P1 is IPS?
    Is T9 1920×1200 while P1 is 2048×1536?
    Is T9 using 4.2 while P1 4.4 Android OS?
    Are both using a real “glass” screen face?
    Does T9 have the speaker on the back while P1 is on the front?
    Does T9 have a removable memory card (TF/SD) while P1 does not?
    Does T9 come with WiFi + 3G while P1 has only WIFI unless ADD a 3G too?
    Does T9 have 7.3A 3.7V battery while P1 uses a 5A 7.4V?
    Does T9 have a plastic back while P1 is metal in the back?
    Does T9 have USB port while P1 does not?
