With the huge volume of the chinese gadget production you would think it’s quite easy to find a solid small pure Android tablet. Well not really, because the Android tablets are a bit out of favor with chinese manufacturers for a long time already, especially the smaller ones. That hopefully changes at least a bit with the new Chuwi Hi9, which should be hitting the market soon by the end of December.
Chinese Chuwi already put out quite a big amount of windows devices or at the best case dualboot ones, but this one is really the pure Android one with Android 7.0 Nougat on board. Chuwi Hi9 will come with the 8.4-inch OGS fully laminated JDI screen with 2560×1600 pixel resolution (so aspect ratio 16:10) and 2.5D glass with seamless edges.

In terms of hardware the Hi9 will be packing MT8173 quad-core processor clocked at 1.9 GHz with PowerVR GX6250 GPU, 4 GB LPDDR3 RAM, 64 GB eMMC 5.1 internal memory, microSD card slot and 5000 mAh battery capacity. But it seems like the HDMI port will be missing though. As mentioned before it’s expected to come out by the end of December, but the official price for it is not yet confirmed, hopefully it will soon appear on their website.
And when we are already talking about Chuwi there is another piece of good news for their fans, because the CoreBook’s Indiegogo campaign reached the $100k stretch goal its RAM got upgraded from 6 GB to 8 GB for free. Check out the project on the Indiegogo’s page.
