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 MateBook E 2019 Debuts, With Snapdragon 850 CPU Inside

By Radu Iorga

Huawei is expanding its notebook lineup, by launching the Huawei MateBook E 2019 laptop. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 processor, an unusual choice, seeing how Huawei doesn’t even put Qualcomm CPUs on its phones. The 2 in 1 device runs on Windows 10 Home.

This is a fanless machine, that uses 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, or 512 GB, of the UFS variety. There’s also 4G LTE support via nano SIM, as expected from a Snapdragon notebook. We also see 4X4 MIMO antenna technology in the mix, Bluetooth 5.0 and dual band WiFi. The screen is a 12 inch touchscreen with a 2160 x 1440 pixel resolution and a 3:2 aspect, plus a 160 degree viewing angle.

It has an oleophobic coating to avoid stains and smudges, plus it tries to keep the blue light out as much as possible. Specs include a 13 megapixel main camera and a 5 MP front shooter, with the main camera feeling like overkill on a laptop. For security there’s a side mounted fingerprint scanner and the MateBook E 2019 plays nicely with the Huawei M Pen Lite stylus (sold separately).

 

The keyboard has a 1.3 mm key travel and the device gets propped up by a kickstand that can be adjusted between 110 and 160 degrees. You can also use the laptop in tent mode. On the entertainment front, there’s dual speakers with dual smartPA amplifiers and Dolby Atmos. Connectivity is actually solid, with USB Type-C for charging, transfers and DisplayPort purposes, plus even an audio jack.

The battery offers up to 10 hours of media playbck at 50% brightness and it’s a 36.3 Wh unit, with fast charging. The whole thing measures 8.5 mm in thickness and weighs 698 grams sans keyboard or 1.173 kg with keyboard. The price starts at $595 and color choices are Titanium Ash and Charm Blue Sea.

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air (2019) is a New Laptop, Freshly Launched in China, Priced at $536

By Radu Iorga

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air (2019) is a brand new laptop launched in China and it’s priced at just $536. It’s up for preorder and it weighs just 2.4 pounds. It’s got a 12.5 inch Full HD screen, slim bezels and a backlit keyboard. Let’s check it out.

The product measures about half an inch in thickness and comes with display bezels as slim as 5.71 mm. Inside we find an 8th gen Intel Core processor and there’s also Harman Kardon acoustics with DTS surround sound support. Xiaomi claims that the notebook also has fast charging, meaning it can reach a 50% juice up after a 35 minute charge session.

However we have no idea how big the battery is. By the way, $536 is the starting price tag, for the Intel Core m3-8100Y CPU version, with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. Then there’s also a $596 model, with the same chip and RAM, but double the storage. Moving up the ladder, there’s a Core i5 version (8250U), with 4 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. That one costs $640.

 

We sure wish there was an 8 GB RAM model, but we can live with these ones. Sadly, Xiaomi doesn’t quite sell its laptops in all the Western countries, or some of the Eastern ones too. However, there are quite a few third party stores that have the product. The device feels pretty sleek and has a generous touchpad. It seems to come in gray and a sort of beige/gold.

New Xiaomi Mi Notebook 2019 Leaked in GeekBench, With Intel Core i5 CPU

By Radu Iorga

Xiaomi is always expanding its product lineup and for the past years, they’ve become a trustworthy name, even in the laptop area. Now they seem to be prepping a brand new laptop, part of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook series. It has just leaked in GeekBench, so let’s check it out.

We don’t know much about the size or other specs, not even the diagonals. What we do know is that it’s going to rely on the current gen Intel Core i5-8265U processor, a 2018 quad core CPU, accompanied by 8 GB of RAM. The device runs Windows 10, which is no surprise and we expect the usual MacBook-style or Huawei MateBook-style design.

One thing that would be nice this time around would be an European keyboard. The scores in GeekBench look pretty solid, between the 4412 points of the single core sub test and the 12.414 of the multi core one. In 2018 Xiaomi launched a bunch of notebooks, including Core i3 cheaper versions. They even have gaming laptops out and also Core i7 alternatives.

They’re covering all bases, except for maybe business laptops. Expect metal cases, silver, rose gold and gold versions, perhaps even some more solid graphics cards as time passes.

Chuwi AeroBook is a 13 Inch Laptop with Core m3 CPU, Priced at $399

By James A.

Chuwi has been using crowdfunding quite a bit for its latest products, including the Chuwi AeroBook. The device is up on Indiegogo right now and it’s looking mighty appealing at $399 and up for a Core m3 CPU.

This is a slim and light laptop with a 13.3 inch screen, that feels like a very lite version of a MacBook Air. It’s got the Full HD resolution and an Intel Core m3-6Y30 CPU, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage (at least). The retail price will be $499, so the $399 is a special offer. The units ship from April and design-wise they feel a bit like a Huawei MateBook or an ASUS VivoBook.

There’s a 16:9 aspect here and the bezels are reasonably narrow. The CPU used here is a 6th gen Intel Core m3 Skylake from 2015, so it’s not exactly a powerhouse, but it beats the current Celeron and Pentium Gemini Lake CPUs. Aside from the 128 GB of eMMC storage you can also add an extra SSD. There will also be 256 GB and even 1 TB models.

We’ve got a backlit keyboard here, a 38 Wh battery and two full sized USB 3.0 ports, as well as a micro HDMI and audio jack. We don’t forget about a microSD card reader and large touchpad. Everything crammed into a 2.77 pound heavy chassis.
