MWC 2018: Archos Debuts Hello Google Assistant Smart Display, Basically a Vertical Tablet

By Radu Iorga

As expected, some companies started the MWC 2018 unveilings early, such as Archos. They’ve just unveiled a new smart speaker with a screen in the mix and Google Assistant on board. It’s called the Archos Hello and it’s going to be priced at $160 for the 7 inch model and $222 for the 8.4 inch one.

French tablet maker Archos has created a smart display and speaker in one here. The design feels a bit like the one of the Lenovo Smart Display, but the actual device is narrower and longer. We get Full HD resolution on the 7 inch or 8.4 inch display and a high fidelity speaker that takes up about half of the screen’s size. Archos Hello actually runs on Android Oreo, so that’s another reason to compare it to be a tablet.

Specs are rather modest, including a quad core CPU (unknown maker), 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. You can use this product to ask it questions via Google Assistant, but you can also stream music, make video calls via Google Duo and the 5 megapixel front camera. Plus, you can watch YouTube on it or cast stuff to the TV set. If you ask me, the design feels like a door lock.

 

Archos has been preparing something special for cryptocurrency fans over at MWC 2018. They’ve created a hardware wallet for virtual coins, called the Safe-T Mini. It stores keys and grants access to coins. That one’s priced at $62 and comes in June.

Huawei MediaPad M5 and MediaPad M5 Pro Get Priced Ahead of MWC 2018 Unveiling

By James A.

The Huawei MediaPad M5 has leaked before, in certifications and specs, also some sketches, but today it’s time to learn its price. We also find out new details about the device’s versions and it seems we are about to get a MediaPad M5 and M5 Pro at MWC 2018.

Already certified by Bluetooth SIG and the FCC, the device was expected to debut in Barcelona at the end of the month in two versions: an 8.4 incher and a 10.1 incher (although it may also be 10.5 inches). Now tipster Roland Quandt claims that the MediaPad M5 8 inch model (codenamed Schubert) will feature 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and it’ll be priced at 328 euros ($405) in the WiFi version, while the LTE one will go for 380 euros ($469).

The larger model, the 10 inch one is codenamed Cameron and it will feature 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, plus it’ll be priced at 379 euros ($468) in the WiFi version and 420 euros ($518) in the LTE one. There’s even an extra MediaPad M5 Pro, with the codename “Cameron Pro”, which will come with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. This one stands out through the support for the M-Pen stylus.

MediaPad M5 Pro only comes with LTE and will sell for around 520 euros ($642). All the new models are said to feature a Kirin 960 CPU, 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution and 4980 mAh battery, plus Android 8.0 Oreo.

Chuwi Hi9 is Probably the Best 8 inch Gaming Tablet You Can Buy for Less Than $200

By Radu Iorga

Remember when the 7 inch or 8 inch tablets ruled? They were excellent gaming devices, but the whole tablet segment seems to have shifted towards convertibles and huge devices. Luckily gaming still happens on a smaller scale, that’s why an 8 inch tablet still feels tempting. A device of the sort is the Chuwi Hi9, which is being sold by Banggood for an excellent price, below $200.

Chuwi Hi9 is a gaming tablet with an 8.4 inch display and it runs on Android 7.0 Nougat. It comes with a quad core MediaTek MT8173 processor and the resolution is pretty generous, at 2560 x 1600 pixels. There’s 4 GB of RAM inside, 64 GB of storage and a PowerVR GX6250 GPU takes care of the gaming aspect. The whole thing measures 7.9 mm, which by the way was the waistline of the Galaxy S7.

It’s got 2.4 and 5G dual band WiFi and the screen is sourced by JDI, with OGS and good looking 2.5D panel. Improved grip is important for long gaming sessions and that’s also offered here. A microSD card slot also makes the cut, plus a front 2 MP camera and a main 5 MP shooter, with HDR capabilities. Bluetooth 4.0 is on the list as well, plus a microUSB port, audio jack and a 4500 mAh battery.

 

Another piece of good news is that the device’s bundle includes a glass screen protector. The device has been with 1 meter drop tests and 100.000 times key tests, plus 23 general performance tests. If you want to get the good deal for it on Banggood, you can find it here.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Chuwi Hi9 Tablet, Unboxing And Review

By Tim

This video covers the new Chuwi Hi9 tablet. This is an 8.4 inch hi-res display tablet that is very light and offers decent but not great specs.

This one comes to us from Chris over at TechTablets and points out the shortcomings on this device.

In no way is this a bad tablet, there are just others you might want to consider in this price range which is currently at $180.

This is probably a good tablet for gaming and video consumption, but do not expect much usefulness from the cameras nor from the battery.

So all that being said, let us proceed right to the video.

This tablet is available currently from Banggood.com at $179.99.

That is all for now,

Tim

Chuwi Hi9 is a Gaming Tablet With Android Nougat, Freshly Unveiled With Pretty Good Specs

By Radu Iorga

Chuwi just unveiled a new tablet and interestingly this device caters to the needs of gamers. It’s the Chuwi Hi9 model we’re talking about here, a gaming device with Android Nougat on board and a compact format. It’s an 8.4 inch tablet with a generous resolution and specs that are detailed below.

The Chuwi Hi9 packs an 8.4 inch OGS fully laminated panel, with JDI technology and a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. It’s got 2.5D glass for extra sexiness and gently curved edges. It’s also an ergonomic machine, easy to handle in those long hours of gaming. The tablet offers a quad core MediaTEk MT8173 processor and uses a PowerVR GX6250 processor, acompanied by 4 GB of RAM (LPDDR3) and 64 GB of eMMC 5.1 storage.

There’s a microSD card slot in the mix too, plus a microUSB port, an audio jack and a 5000 mAh battery. Chuwi Hi9 should be available by the end of the current month, but we don’t yet have a price tag for it (details are promised here). What’s certain is that it should be pretty affordable. In the meantime Chuwi has an excellent offer, with the crowdfunded CoreBook device getting bumped up from 6 GB of RAM to 8 GB for free.

That happens as a thank you to customers, once the $100k funding threshold is reached. More details here.
