There are three models coming our way from Chuwi’s 9th generation tablet line. The Chuwi Hi9 is optimized for gaming, the Chuwi Hi9 Pro’s selling point is the 2K resolution screen, and the Chuwi Hi9 Air boasts of a great battery life. Today, the manufacturer announced it is going to launch a new model from this line. The Chuwi Hi9 Plus is designed with a single purpose in mind – to compete with the Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro.
It’s said the Chuwi Hi9 Plus will be released in September. And the company revealed only the following specs:
- Its dimensions are going to be 266.2*177*8.1mm.
- Weighs about 500 grams. Extremely thin and lightweight, making it easy to hold in every orientation.
- Comes with a magnetic keyboard dock, so it can be turned into an office Tablet PC in one second.
As the Chuwi Hi9 Plus is going to struggle against one of the most powerful Android tablets available on the market, and we don’t have any information concerning its specs list, there is every reason to think its appearance and internals will be identical/competitive. Say, the MediaPad M5 Pro comes with a 10.8-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 2560 × 1600 pixels and a pixel density of 280ppi, Harman Kardon sound-wave four-way stereo speakers, Kirin 960 chip, 13MP and 8MP cameras, 4GB RAM, 32-128GB storage, Android 8.0, USB Type-C, and a 7500mAh battery.
This simply means, there is every chance to see a 10.*-inch screen with a high-resolution, a large battery, Android 8.0, etc. We mean all these features can be found on some of its current models. But what about the processor? Chuwi has been always using MediaTek’s chips. Will it switch to Qualcomm? If not, there will be a certain gap between the performance it can provide and that on the MediaPad M5 Pro. At least, it should be packed with a MediaTek Helio P60. This sounds more realistic.
