With the recent announcement and release of Tablet makers especially Cube i9 and Voyo V3 Flagship diving into the new Skylake grounds, it’s expected that others will follow. And on this ground, the new Teclast X3 Pro is just that, an obvious successor to the Teclast X2 Pro, although aesthetically and in terms of design, both tablets look identical. The new Skylake Chipset innards will it around 30% more ump than the previous Intel Core M. Also worth mentioning, Teclast has also opt for 8 GB instead of 4 GB on the Cube i9, making it a better choice. The tablet also supports Active Stylus (256 pressure points), which is good for note taking but quite different from the more productive use of a Wacom Stylus. In addition, basing from the promotional pictures, it seems to Support USB Type C Connector, preferably used for Charging or power port.
Basically, an Upgraded Teclast X2 Pro
Also the tablet retains the Dual Standard USB Slots, but also bumps the storage to 128 GB SSD (Solid State Drive), and throws away the slower eMMC storage of the previous Gen. However, it is not perfect, and just like it’s older brother (X2 Pro), it is a fixed Angle Ultrabook, meaning it is a Transformer Style Ultrabook with a Magnetic Docking Port. It also has a 16:9 Ratio screen, which is similar to the X2 Pro, and unlike the Cube i9 as well as the Chuwi Hi12 which has a Surface Pro like 3:2 ratio screen which seems to favour most users. It would have benefited from a standalone kickstand as well as a Keyboard Design similar to the Cube i9 or the Jumper EZpad 5S, which are based on Surface Pro designs. Furthermore, there’s also no word with regards to Wireless AC or Dual Band WiFi 5GHz, which seems to be missing on most tablets, Chinese manufacturers like to use Realtek based chipsets, but the performance is limited to 2.4GHz.
Concerning pricing, although it’s placed within $400, online resellers probably go as high as $500 without the peripherals like keyboard and Stylus. But one good news to this is that the Teclast X2 Pro (will be priced even lower now with this release). Even though it is a bit slower than Skylake, it’s still a great value nowadays and more than enough to support programs like Premier, Photoshop as well as light games.
