This year’s CES wrapped up just a couple days back with one of the most proactive companies being Chuwi, which actually announced three new products. We’re talking about the new SurBook Pro 2-in-1 laptop powered by an Intel Gemini Lake processor, the Chuwi Hi9 Air tablet equipped with a Mediatek 8176 processor running Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, and the GBox Pro mini PC sporting an Intel i5 processor.
If that weren’t enough, Chuwi seem to have been working on a device called GBOX as well, which will also be the first device equipped with an Intel Gemini Lake N4100 chipset.
The company explains that they’ve gone with the Gemini Lake N4100 chip because it offers up to 50% performance improvement over past CPUs, DDR4 support for faster data transfer, 4K UHD HEVC 10-bit support, up to 2.1 times faster web browsing experience, up to 3.2 times graphics performance at entry-level prices, integrated gigabit wifi extreme download speeds, VR9 hardware decoding and up to 10 hours of battery life.
What’s special about the GBOX is that the electronics manufacturer wants you to help them design the product exactly the way you like it. So you can actually decide its appearance and the materials being used (engineering plastics, aluminium magnesium alloy, carbon fiber).
Other than that, you’ll be able to choose how much RAM you fancy (from 2GB to 8GB) and how much flash memory you need (from 32GB to 128GB). Plus you can also suggest them which kind of storage expansions you wish to have (TF, SSD, HPD), which external ports (HDMI, VGA, Type-C, RJ45, USB), and even the operating system (Windows or Windows+Ubuntu).
If you are interested in this product and you wish them to pick your favorite design, head over to the official website and vote for it. Chuwi is also running a giveaway, all you need to do is check out their page, write down a comment listing the functionalities you want the Chuwi GBOX to pack and subscribe to their newsletter. Good luck!
