Chuwi’s Vi7 is a super affordable 7 inch tablet with Android 5.1


We’re currently testing the Chuwi Vi10, and at the cost of spoiling the review, we’d like to let you know that we’re pretty darn impressed with what it can do.

The Vi7 comes from the same stable as the Vi10, the only difference being that the Vi7 is an Android-only tablet, besides the obvious hardware differences. True to its name, the Vi7 is a 7-inch device. It has a resolution of 1024 x 600, which makes it pretty clear that the Vi7 isn’t going to be your portable multimedia device, but rather a large screen slate to install your productivity apps on.

Other specs of this new tablet include 1GB of RAM, 8GB of ROM and a 1.2GHz quad-core Intel SoFIA Atom X3 C3230 processor. Additionally, the tablet also does 3G (which if you ask me, will be its claim to fame if it ever gets popular) which means you can access data on the go.

The device is still undergoing its production, so it is on pre-sale until the 10th of July… if you’re interested in getting yourself one, head over to GearBest and use coupon code ‘VI7’ to bring the price down to US$59. If I’m not wrong, the Vi7 happens to be the most affordable Intel Atom X3 tablet… second perhaps to the Teclast X70.

    Well this is much better buy because unlike the Teclast this has 1GB of RAM which is kind of needed these days.

    Everyday new flagship phones are announced with better screens, smaller bezels and so thin you can cut vegetables with them… But where is the development around tablets? it seems the Mipad is still the only chinese Tablet that is actually has some descent specs but where are the 6mm thick ultraHD tablets with 3gb ram? I thought I read last year the Chinese market wanting to compete with the iPad but I don’t see any progress at all… Thoughts?

    Just ordered the Vi7 last week and I’m pretty anxious to get it delivered. I was mainly attracted by the GPS capabilities (at least on paper) – it has Glonass. I’m planning to use it mainly in the car as an add-on to my cd-player head-unit.

    LE: I just contacted the seller from Aliexpress where I placed the order and they told me that Chuwi factory will finish the current batch of orders on 24th of June, the seller will start deliveries the 2nd day – on 25th of June. I just hope to have the tablet in less than one month, in order to test it during summer holiday.

      Same! Do you think it will run hdrip series on it?

        HDrips are playable on my 2 year-old MK808B TV stick with dual-core RK3066. So, I expect no problems in this area…

    Just ordered one, thanks GizChina for the discount 🙂 I have had a Chuwi tablet two years ago and the quality was good for the price, so I`m hoping for the same again. Shame the battery is just 2500mAh, video playback only at around 3Hrs, but you can`t have it all for 58.99$!

      Do let us know what you think about it when you get it!

    Until this date, the Chuwi factory was not able to send the first batch of tablets to the reseller… Pretty sad about that…
