Chuwi, a Chinese tablet company, has just unveiled the specifications of the Chuwi Hi13. The Chuwi Hi13 targets the high-end market, but it is also an alternative to the surface. The Chuwi Hi13 is powered by an Apollo Lake N3450, 4GB of RAM with 64GB eMMC is due to be released on the 20th Next week. It will initially be priced at $369 USD. It supports an optional dock with two full-sized USB ports and an optional pressure sensitive HiPen H3 stylus. The HiPen H1 will also work on the tablet according to Chuwi.
HI13 is a 13-inch tablet and as such is certainly not the product that you wanted if you were looking for something extremely portable. But that said the work done by Chuwi for this tablet is still very good, considering the fact that the tablet itself has an important hardware and standard USB ports. The thickness is contained in only 34.65 x 22.95 x 1.76 cm and is instead the weight 1.6000 kg to be heard and to make a product HI13 “important.” This weight, however, derives also from a build quality higher than the average, the tablet being entirely made of metal. The same can not be said of the keyboard, which is instead made entirely of Metal, slightly soft, pleasant to the touch and which does not retain the fingerprints. The coupling is solid but the housing of the tablet still does a little ‘of the game and “swinging” if we raise the 2-in-1 from the desk. The keyboard is of good quality, the keys are well spaced and have a good run. They are not backlit and unfortunately the keyboard is only available with US layout. Rejected however the touchpad, small and not very accurate. Better to obtain a Bluetooth mouse (or adapter). Two more USB ports are available on the dock, which does not require to be powered or recharged.
Within Chuwi HI13 we find a Next Gen processor Intel Apollo lake Celeron N3450 Quad core 1.1 GHz, With 9th Gen Intel HD Graphics 500 supported DX12 while the RAM amounts to less than 4 GB (DDR3). The internal memory is of 64 GB. Wi-Fi is 802.11 a/b/g/n/acand its stability and speed they seemed a bit ‘erratic, but quite in line with other similar products. Also present was the Blutooth 4.0 (very stable) and an LED notification, however, functioning only to indicate charging in progress. Good the Four speakers, which offer a substantial volume of particularly high quality. Speaking of HI13 connections offers a microSD slot Expandable to max 128GB, a video output and well microHDMI 4 USB ports, two on the keyboard and two on the tablet, one of which is a 3.0 Also C-type USB Port.
The two cameras Back 5.0MP and Front 2.0MP. We will not dwell too much on this detail view of the objective discomfort in photographing with this device. In any case we can say that the quality is more than enough for a similar product, but do not expect to be able to use for the photos of your holiday.
The well-to 13-inch display has a 3K resolution, 3000 x 2000 pixels in the particular format 3:2 (a cross between (4: 3 and 16: 9) particularly pleasant. The brightness is good and spans a very broad range. Then we recommend the removal of the pre-applied film which retains the very footprints. It is on the whole a good display for a cheap product, and of this resolution, although the viewing angles are only good, also due to the distance from the outside of the display glass.
Windows 10 is available on this tablet at Home 64-bit version. As well as for Android here there are no customization manufacturer. The system is thus presented as a classic Windows session 10 in desktop mode. You can not easily use an external mouse and his keyboard, but using it with the built-in touchpad, far too imprecise.
Hi13 Packs a massive 10000mAh battery that can offer upto 8hours of average using time. Also it can be fastly Recharged by using the original 24W charger.
The Chuwi HI13 has a little sexy, but the tablet does look very good. The premium design, decent performance, plus the ability to over HDMI and two full USB 3.0 port and C-type additional connecting hardware,However. We therefore conclude this review with a positive buy recommendation. CHUWI Hi13 will be officially released on February 20, with pre-orders for $369 starting on the same date, I’ll update the post with pre-order links and the product page once they become available.
