Consumer friendly version

It can be quite confusing, seeing a lot of Teclast X98 variants in the market. The Teclast X98 Plus is basically a cheaper and slightly slower version of the X98 Pro. The hardware similarities speaks for itself. The X98 Plus is powered by Intel Atom X5-Z8300 Cherry Trail Chipset, which can only turbo boost up to 1.83GHz. However, i do think this difference is marginal and would not be clearly noticeable on real world test.

Nearly Identical hardware but more interesting

As you can see on the table above, the X98 Plus sports 4 GB Low Powered Memory and 64 GB eMMC Storage out of the box, the tablet also sports the same Retina Display on all the X98 variants. What likely will entice consumers is the pricing, it is cheaper and more budget friendly. Furthermore, the tablet now offers Dual OS on stock.
