I’ve played with the Chuwi Vi8 tablet for a bit last year and that was the dual boot version of the slate. Now the upgraded Chuwi Vi8 Plus is here, with Windows 10 in tow and it gets unboxed below. When we got it, it was priced at $90, but you can find out the current price at GearBest.com.
This model comes in a box, that looks a lot like the one Amazon uses for its Kindle Fire products. Inside we find the charger, USB cable, warranty and manuals. The product has an 8 inch 1280 x 800 pixel display, plus an Intel Atom X5-Z8300 processor. It’s a quad core unit clocked at 1.84 GHz and it also comes with Intel HD Graphics Gen 8.
Chuwi Vi8 Plus brings 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and a microSD card slot, as well as Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI 1.4 and WiFi. It has an USB Type C port and a 2 MP back shooter and also a front camera with the same res. The battery has a 4000 mAh capacity and on paper provides 3 hours of video playback. The Chuwi slate measures 9.3 mm in thickness, weighs 350 grams and it has a plastic case, with metal frame.
It brings OTG support and can work in tandem with a mouse and keyboard, if need be. We’ll be back with a full review before you know it! You can find its price on GearBest.com.
