Surface Pro Screen?

Chuwi’s upcoming tablet is probably the biggest tablet out yet of 2016, the Chuwi Hi12 is a 12 inch tablet with a hint of iPad aesthetics, is this an iPad Pro look alike? It seems that way, but the tablet also promises seamless support of both Android and Windows 10 systems. But versions may vary.

The 12 inch display has a 3:2 Display Ratio and a 2160 x 1440 pixels, making it the first Chinese tablet to offer which is similar to the Surface Pro 3. The tablet is also equipped with 4 GB LPDRR3 RAM and 64 GB eMMC Storage at stock with support for TF card expandable storage. One thing is certain, the tablet isn’t a powerhouse, the X5-8300 Cherry Trail Chipset isn’t particularly powerful compared to the Core M. The tablet is a capable machine and perfect for students or those who want to surf the internet and do light tasks. In addition, 11,000mAh LiPO Battery powers this huge tablet.

The tablet also supports Chuwi HiPen H1 Active Stylus with 256 pressure sensitivity and Palm Rejection, making an ideal productivity tablet. Also the 2K display and 3:2 ratio gives it enough screen room for most tasks.

The tablet also has the option for a detachable keyboard via Magnetic Dock. The tablet also comes with one standard USB 3.0 and 2.0 Port. The table will come in either Space Gray or Champagne Gold colors. At it’s innards holds a humongous 11,000mAh LiPo battery, enough to power the 2K 12 inch display.

12 inch Surface Pro like Tablet

The Chuwi Hi12 is a great low cost tablet. But I do feel it is a bit under-powered. It looks like the Cube i9 but with less horsepower. However, you do get it at a great price. The Surface Pro 3 ratio screen and high resolution 2K display is a great addition, not to mention also Active Stylus support is a great addition. If you are looking for a big productivity tablet and not picky in terms of performance, then the Chuwi Hi12 is a great option.

    • Hello ie,

      My bad, when it was advertise it said it supports Stylus, although not really specifying what type of Stylus it supports. I am pretty sure it does not support Wacom Stylus. But just to be sure, i don’t think stylus support is available

      Best Regards,
      Vince
