Chuwi Hi12 scored some major success during the past weeks, mainly due to the superior build quality and still pretty unusual 3:2 display aspect ratio. Now the 2in1 tablet will be even more flexible and desirable with the upcoming dualboot version.
Hardware is staying exactly the same, but that’s not a bad thing for sure, because especially the excellent 12-inch screen with 2160 x 1440 resolution and the aforementioned 3:2 aspect ratio is a pure joy to watch. Reasonable Intel Atom X5-Z8300 processor paired with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of storage doesn’t hurt either and the full metal unibody build with two full sized USB ports (one is USB 3.0) and 11000 mAh battery are cherries on the top.
Now with the dualboot version we will have access to Windows 10 / Android 5.1 combo, so both productivity and leisure will be rejoicing. What needs to be mentioned is the optional keyboard dock, which in my eyes isn’t as much optional as it is mandatory, offering good keyboard and another two full sized USB ports.
Basic version of Chuwi Hi12 is currently sold for about 250$ at various reseller websites and the dualboot version is expected to be priced more or less exactly the same.
