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.

Wacom Debuts 24 Inch Tablet, With Full HD Res, Business and Education Focus

By Radu Iorga

Wacom unleashed a new tablet this week, a 24 inch Full HD model that’s meant for education and business, rather than drawing and graphical design. Keep in mind this is not a device that has the required color accuracy, pressure sensitivity or other such features required by designers.

The product will be useful for the medical sector too, especially in Japan. The new tablet has a certain focus on transactions, both business and medical. We’re talking about signing agreements and deals, contracts and pulling up enrollment documents and forms. It’s no Cintiq, Intuos or other such models, that’s for sure. Specs include a 1920 x 1080 pixel panel and the device is available in two versions, the DTK-2451 (pen only) and DTH-2452 (pen and touch version).

The business-focused models will bring 2048 levels of pressure, which is no match to a Cintiq Pro’s 8096 levels. Both newcomers have a hardened cover glass, which will serve to reduce glare, scratching and it’ll also offer a surface that feels like real paper. Bezels have been reduced a lot and a new pen holder is attached to the side. A Kensington security slot has been provided to avoid theft and a pen tether is included too.

On the connectivity front, we’ve got DVI video, with support for both analog and digital systems. The new Wacom tablet has an adjustable stand, with support for angles between 11 and 73 degrees. VESA mounting holes are also here, for third party arms and stands.

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

iPad Pro Gets iPhone X vibes With This iPad X Concept Tablet

By James A.

Many people have been saying that Apple will borrow the Face ID and design of the iPhone X on future devices, including tablets and maybe even MacBooks. One way the next iPad may look like is envisioned by designer Martin Hajek, who came up with the concept tablet below. It’s called the iPad X.

The iPad design language is still present, so this is most likely an iPad Pro, but one that has a TrueDepth set of cameras. The notch is obviously here and there speakers at the bottom and top, as seen in the renders. By the way, I expect the frame to be made of stainless steel and the screen to be a narrow bezel one (also probably an OLED panel). The iPad X has the same form factor as the iPad Pro, being a 12.9 incher on paper, but in reality it has a bigger diagonal.

It looks pretty sleek to me and a part of me thinks that it’s actually a better “experiment” than the iPhone X. Just please Apple, get rid of the godawful way of charging the Apple Pencil by having it stick out of the Lightning port. I see that Martin Hajek has also rendered a new generation of Apple Pencil, by the way, closer to a business pen than anything else.

I’m curious what the accessories of such a device will look like and just how the user will hold the tablet to be properly authenticated. I think we’ll find out in a few months.

T-Mobile Updating Samsung Galaxy Tab E to Android 8.0 Oreo

By Radu Iorga

In the most shocking move of the week, as far as software updates go, T-Mobile has decided to update two rather modest devices to Android 8.0 Oreo. I’m talking about the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime and the Samsung Galaxy Tab E. Let’s see what the deal is.

These are both affordable models, priced at $200 or so, maybe even less. Interestingly, not even the Galaxy Note 8 and S8 have Android 8.0 Oreo, but these lower end units do. It’s also true that we don’t have a launch date for the software update, but I expect the software will come till the Spring. The Galaxy Tab E 8.0 was launched in January 2016 with Android 5.1.1 and got bumped up to 7.1.

The Galaxy Tab E 9.6 is even older, launched in July 2016 with Android 5.1 and also updated to Android 7.0. It sounds surprising for me to hear that a 1.5 GB RAM device gets Oreo. They are quad core Snapdragon machines and they also have 3G and WiFi versions. Oreo should bring features like notification badges, snooze for notifications, picture in picture mode, Google Play Protect and so much more.

Project Treble is also in the mix, although I doubt it’ll be useful for future updates in this case.
