Cube iWork3x – 12 incher with a Surface Pro 4 Screen, Is this better than the Chuwi Hi13?

Cube has it’s eyes on the Chuwi Hi13, their upcoming 2 in 1 Convertible bares strikingly similar specs including a Surface 4 Pro screen and SSD storage.

The Cube iWork3x is also a look alike of a clone of the Surface Pro 4, meaning it is also in a collision course with the earlier released Chuwi Hi13. Although looking at the early specs listed below, you have an idea that it offers a bit more, especially that it offers SSD (Solid State Drive) instead of just eMMC. The specs below are not yet final, but you are looking at more or less the intended release of this tablet.

Just looking at the specs, you can definitely see where it edges the Chuwi Hi13, 6 GB RAM and 128 GB SSD is a great combination, although with only an Intel Apollo Lake 3450, it doesn’t deliver the same performance boost with the Kaby Lake Core M3. It is also smaller at just 12.3 inch compared to 13 inches on the Chuwi Hi13 and the resolution is slightly lower. The battery is also smaller. In terms of connectivity, it will surely support Dual Band WiFi and USB Type C (Data and Charging). USB 3.0 is also available, as well as a Kickstand, which I think will be patterned off the Surface Pro 4.

So, What is still unknown?

Whether it will support Stylus and What kind

Likely pricing?

According to several sources, it will likely be priced somewhere between $360 to $400 on release. Which is the same price, when the Chuwi Hi13 came out

Kaby Core could have made it a killer

Similar to the Cube Mix Plus, I would have expected it to come out with at least a Kaby Core M3 Chipset. Considering, they were able to bring down the costs of the Cube Mix Plus at around the same pricing. Although the Apollo Lake N3450 is a good chipset, when it comes to multitasking or video editing, you need more power. Anyway, I do like that that it comes with 6 GB RAM instead of 4 GB RAM and SSD storage instead of eMMC.
