We know Chuwi is beloved not only in China but overseas as well. The main reason for this is the so-called China Speed. It’s a special term that describes how fast the Chinese manufacturer launches new models. As for this manufacturer, it is releasing the Hi9 series tablets so frequently that we even don’t manage to review them. But this should be done for customers. We mean you can choose any kind of tablet from this brand and they won’t cost a fortune as the Apple products do. Of course, we don’t say the Chuwi tablets are the best. But they are going to be the best choice. As for now, we want you to pay attention to the Chuwi Hi9 Air, which is considered to be the most popular and beloved model outside China. It is offered at $189.99. And we guess you will be surprised to see what amazing features it comes with.
The first thing you should know about the Chuwi Hi9 Air is that it’s been made to be used in a landscape orientation. When holding it in this position the camera will appear on the top, while the power button and the volume rocker will be on the right. The screen is quite large at 10.1 inches. Besides the OGS technology and the IPS matrix, it comes with a 2K resolution. The bezels are narrowed a lot. Of course, it can’t be compared with the smartphone narrow. But it is still quite amazing if compared with other tablets. The housing is made of metal, which prone to collecting fingerprints, by the way. You will be surprised, but the Chuwi Hi9 Air sports dual-SIM card slot.
Under the hood, the Chuwi Hi9 Air sports a MediaTek Helio X20 deca-core 64-bit chip, which is paired with an ARM Mali-T880 GPU, a 4GB DDR3 RAM, a 64GB eMMC supporting up to 128GB TF expansion, and an 8000mAh battery. The hardware is impressive, but we won’t recommend you to play mobile games on large-screen tables because 3D games with on-screen controls don’t translate too well to a 10-inch tablet. It’s just too big and heavy to make playing these games very enjoyable.
The Chuwi Hi9 Air also runs on Android 8.0 and comes with usable cameras of 5MP on the front and a 13MP on the back. At the beginning of the article, we said this tablet supports dual-SIM connectivity. But apart from this, it also supports dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2.
