Chuwi Hi13 trying to stand against the Samsung Galaxy Book

Chuwi Hi13

Direct comparison against the top brands in the competition is a popular sport among the chinese manufacturers and with all the shiny new products announced at MWC 2017 they just can’t resist. Like Chuwi who couldn’t resist trying to slot their new Chuwi Hi13 model against the freshly revealed Samsung Galaxy Book.

In my eyes these two 2-1 tablets are not exactly competing for the same customer segment, but still could be interesting to see the list of the hardware specs just pitted against each other. That’s what we can do, because we have no idea about the projected price of the new Samsung, though it’s probably going to be sky high so Chuwi will definitely win the value battle.

You can see that some of the hardware is really not on the same cathegory level so hard to directly compare those two tablets, but both will be surely very capable devices. What’s more interesting is the tempting promise from Chuwi executives in the latest materials to release a version of Chuwi Hi13 with a Core M processor later on. Bring it on.
