Chuwi HiBook Pro shows up online in China


The original Chuwi HiBook is an interesting midrange 2in1 tablet with goodies like full metal body, dualboot Windows 10/Android 5.1 or interesting optional magnetic docking keyboard. Using only the Cherry Trail Atom-X5 Z8300 it maintains reasonable price and currently you can get it around $180-$200 at interenational resellers.

For the nitpickers it has a weakness though with the usage of “only” FullHD resolution (1920×1200 pixels) on its 10.1-inch screen. All the higher resolution lovers can rejoice now, because Chuwi has just released an updated version with Chuwi HiBook Pro and the display gets bumped up to 2560×1600 pixel screen, meaning 298 PPI. Everything else stays the same so the screen is OGS and fully laminated so no reason to worry about that.

Rest of the specs like 4 GB RAM, 64 GB storage or USB Type-C port remains untouched, the only adjustment is slightly larger battery capacity. The upgrade from 6600 to 8000 mAh will hopefully provide the needed extra power for the hungrier display.

Chuwi HiBook Pro is so far available only in the chinese distribution channels for a price around 1199 yuan ($183) so for the international resellers we have to expect higher price tag in the vicinity of let’s say 230-240$. Is the better screen worth the extra price ? Hard to say, personally i think the FHD for such display is enough, but if the battery endurance remains the same or better with the 2K screen then it’s a possibility.
