Highlights of Chuwi Hibook Pro:

  • 2K Fully Laminated Retina Display
  • Updated to Intel Atom Cherry Trail X5-Z8350
  • 4 GB RAM and 64 GB Storage
  • Supports Expandable Storage via MicroSD
  • Dual OS (Android 5.1 and Windows 10)
  • 10.1 inch IPS 2K Retina OGS (One Glass Solution) Fully Laminated

Limitations:

  • Modest Performance only (Intel Atom Cherry Trail X5)
  • No Dual Band WiFi

The Chuwi Hibook Pro is basically an upgrade to the Hibook 2. It upgrades the 1080p FHD screen to a much higher 2K Fully laminated Retina Display. It still keeps the same hardware and features, a modest Intel Atom Cherry Trail X5 Chipset with 4 GB RAM and USB Type C support on board. The tablet also retains the Dual OS Support.

In terms of connectivity, it is limited to 2.4GHz Wifi and thus there is no support for Dual Band WiFi. The tablet also supports USB Type C reversible connectivity. At it’s innards bares a 8000mAh battery with support for Fast Charging.

Just a better display or even better?

The Chuwi Hibook Pro is not entirely a unique tablet, it is just a minor update to the Hibook 2, but it is honestly a good change. The tablet overall is a lot better now, and the Retina Display offers much better performance in work and games. Even with a modest performance, its still a great upgrade.
