Cube plan to launch a new Intel Skylake tablet for real tablet computing power

In the run up to the release of the Intel powered Mi Pad 2, Chinese tablet maker Cube weren’t all that impressed with the Xiaomi’s specs, and promised to release a ‘real’ flagship tablet of their own.

For 2016 Cube will release the Cube i9 tablet (an image of while is shown above) with a powerful new Intel Skylake chipset on the inside. The Skylake is a 6th gen processor that can offer some really potent performance and capable of improving battery life by as much as %30 in mobile devices.

From the image the tablet looks to be a larger device with a display of around 10.1-inch, which makes more sense than the 7.9-inch panel in the Intel powered Xiaomi Mi Pad 2

Cube will be keeping the rest of the Skylake tablet under wraps until nearer the final launch date, but already people in the know are speculating at what specs the device might have. Tablet site TechTablets suggests the falling hardware will live inside this slate beast:

  • 4GB DDR3 RAM
  • 64GB/128GB SSD
  • LTE
  • 1080p display with Wacom support
  • Micro SD

We do like the look of these newer Windows tablets from China. For the money and hardware they are looking like good alternatives to the Microsoft Surface and even the iPad Pro. Let’s see what else 2016 has in store for us.

    I see they never learn. 16:9 ratio in a tablet? Another paper weight, there’s a reason why all three serious players have abandoned the 16:9 for tablets for years now (4:3, 3:2 or 16:10), as great as it is for media, it’s atrocious for reading and Web surfing in small*ish* screens …

      What ARE you talking about? If this tablet really does support Wacom products as is suggested, 16 x 9 is the ONLY way to go. Ask an artist.

        It’s bad for reading (portrait mode is toast).

        Yeah, it’s great for artists, but they’re a niche of a niche.

          Artists are a niche of a niche???? Tell me, what color is the sky on your planet?

            Most people don’t buy a tablet to paint, that’s why tablets with a wacom is a niche as evidenced by their sales.

            Yes in tablets sales artists are a niche. THey should be cared of (many tablets should be released for their use), but their needs should not override the general trends.
