A few weeks back we reported about a new tablet in development from Chinese tablet maker Chuwi. The device — Chuwi Vi8 Plus — is now official and is being touted as the first Windows 10 tablet to have a USB Type-C port.
While I’m not sure if that is the case (Dell, HP seem to already have some), the Vi8 Plus could definitely be the first sub-$100 device in history to have the Type-C port.
Trivia aside, let’s talk specs.
The Chuwi Vi8 Plus has an Intel Cherry Trail X5 Z8300 1.84GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB on-board storage. The screen is — as the name suggests — 8 inches wide diagonally with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.
Other specs of the tablet include a 2 mega-pixel rear camera, a front camera with the same resolution, and a 4000mAh battery. As mentioned, the tablet runs Windows 10 out of the box and has a USB Type-C port.

For $97 shipped worldwide (on Geekbuying.com), the Vi8 Plus looks like quite a deal. The only Chuwi tablet I’ve spent time with is the Vi10, which is a mighty impressive device but with a larger screen. You can read the review here.
