New flagship Chuwi 2in1 tablet is finally about to be released so after a prolonged period of waiting since we have first seen the official specs revealed at CES 2017 in January. And now we know the exact pricing and the presale start date of the Chuwi Hi13.
Chuwi Hi13 is without a question trying to stand directly against the Microsoft Surface Book using the very same 3:2 aspect ratio screen with 3K 3000×2000 pixel resolution and 267 PPI. With Intel Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake processor and 4 GB RAM the performance will be good, though using the 64 GB eMMC storage and not SSD is a detriment to the flagship model. Everything of course running on Windows 10, but there will be also Ubuntu OS support officially available.
The build is as usual all metal unibody and compared to the Surface Book its a fanless design inside. We will also find AAC four speaker audio setup, dualband ac Wi-Fi, USB-C port supporting audio and video transmission, 10000 mAh battery with 24W fast charging, 5 Mpix + 2 Mpix cameras and support for the new upcoming Chuwi HiPen H3 stylus (or the already existing HiPen H1). There is also optional detachable metal rotary keyboard with dual USB-A full sized ports.
Chuwi Hi13 is going to be officially released on February 20th and customers will be able to pre-order it starting that day for $369. That’s not a bad price comparing it to the competition, but still add SSD to the mix and it would be insta buy and much bigger hit.
