Chuwi Minibook is a 8 inch Convertible Laptop, Handled in Front of Camera (Video)

By Radu Iorga

It seems that GPD is not the only company experimenting with smaller pocketable Windows machines, as Chuwi is also doing that. They’ve got a device dubbed Chuwi Minibook, which is a pocketable laptop, with Intel Gemini Lake CPU inside. It’s actually a rebranded iLife NG08 and it’s been handled by Notebook Italia, in the video below.

We’re dealing with a convertible laptop here, meaning it’s able to rotate from tablet to laptop format and viceversa. The video shows a rotating hinge, at 360 degrees and a pretty generously spaced keyboard. The screen is an IPS LCD with one glass solution and full lamination. There’s Windows 10 on board and a pretty beefy metal body as the base.

The screen offers a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and there’s also a 2 megapixel webcam in the mix. Specs include an Intel Celeron N4000 or N41000 CPU, with 4 or 8 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of eMMC storage. A 3500 mAh battery feels like a bit of a bummer here, with only 4 hours of functioning promised. Mini HDMI and USB Type-C are also part of the package, a microSD card slot and an audio jack.

We see two speakers on the sides and the built actually looks pretty solid. We’re expecting a lower price, on account of the CPU and the experimental format, but I’m not very sure if consumers actually want a small laptop. You can find out more on Notebook Italia, including more impressions and pics.

Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite 8 Is a New 8 Inch Budget Tablet With a Kirin 710 Processor Inside

By Radu Iorga

Huawei is keeping busy ahead of the Huawei P30 Pro unveiling tomorrow and it announced a brand new tablet, the MediaPad M5 Lite 8 model. This one is an 8 inch budget offering with a Kirin 710 CPU.

It’s actually the smaller version of the MediaPad M5 Lite announced last October. This version also brings some upgrades and relies on the powerful Kirin 710 CPU, which we already saw in action on the Huawei Mate 20 Lite and Honor 8X phones. The design is pretty standard and the product comes with two speakers, both placed at the back and tuned by Harman Kardon. They also offer Huawei Histen sound effects.

The Kirin 710 CPU is clocked at 2.2 GHz and the slate ships with 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of storage, plus a microSD card slot. The device’s 8 inch screen has a Full HD resolution and uses 2.5D curved glass. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie with EMUI 9.0 on top and also uses a 5100 mAh battery. Camera-wise, there’s a 13 MP shooter at the back side, plus an 8 MP cam upfront.

 

The device will be available in Dark Gray and Champagne Gold and it’ll go on sale in China today, starting at $178. That’s the WiFi only 3 GB RAM version, while the 4G/ 4 GB RAM one is $238.

Huawei Honor Tab 5 is a New Android Tablet Priced Below $200

By Radu Iorga

Huawei’s sub brand Honor unveiled today a brand new tablet dubbed Honor Tab 5, priced at a mere $165. It’s available in China for starters and it’s going to pack an 8 inch display and a Kirin 710 processor.

The product is supposed to be part of the new wave of slates capitalizing on the rebirth of the segment. It comes as a preemptive strike for the iPad Mini 5, with midrange specs. The Kirin 710 CPU actually held its own against Snapdragon 636 and 660 on the Huawei Mate 20 Lite and Honor 8X phones, so it’s quite a good choice.

The tablet also brings a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, a Mali G51 MP4 set of graphics, a 5100 mAh battery and stereo speakers. There’s also an 8 megapixel camera at the back and one at the front. Other specs include an audio jack, microSD card slot and the device is available in 4 configs in China:

  • 3GB/32GB/WiFi – $165
  • 4GB/64GB/WiFi – $195
  • 3GB/32GB/WiFi + 4G LTE – $210
  • 4GB/64GB/WiFi + 4G LTE – $225

No idea if and when the device debuts in Europe or USA. I see there’s also Dolby Atmos acoustics here.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 Rugged Tablet Launching in India on February 14th

By Radu Iorga

Samsung has started sending media invites for an upcoming event that involves a new rugged tablet coming from the South Korean device maker. It’s the Galaxy Active Tab 2, that will arrive with military specs in India on February 14th. We have details below.

The product is MIL-STD 810G certified, plus IP68 dust and water resistant. Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 has been launched in the USA using the same tagline teased for India: “Make Hard Look Easy”. Interestingly, the slate is listed in the Business area of the Samsung site, so it may not be intended for the average consumer.

Galaxy Tab Active 2 comes in WiFi and LTE versions in USA, packing an 8 inch TFT display, with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. Inside we find the Samsung Exynos 7870 processor, 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. There’s also a microSD card slot and we sure hope that the Android 7.1 Nougat software of the US version has been bumped up to Oreo at least.

Other features include an 8 megapixel main camera and a front 5 MP shooter with face unlock. There’s also a fingerprint sensor for extra security. Samsung claims that this product can survive for half an hour in five foot deep water. It also comes with S Pen support, AR features and a 4450 mAh removable battery, good enough for 11 hours of usage apparently. You can also hook up a keyboard via POGO pins.

By Radu Iorga

The Alldocube M3 is an 8 inch tablet that was unveiled recently and now it’s getting a very solid offer on Banggood.com. It’s priced at just $119.99 for a limited time, down from the $129.99 price tag during the preorder period.

This is the first Alldocube tablet to feature the Helio X27 processor and it should reach pre sale next week. The $10 extra off comes via the couponn “0f9bf0”, used during the checkout on Banggood.com. Aside from this retailer, others are also prepping to sell the device, including Aliexpress for example and even Amazon 2 weeks from now.

There’s 3 GB of RAM on board, 32 GB of storage and it can even make phone calls. This is a deca core tablet, with 4G LTE and an 8 inch screen with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution.
