The last product of Chuwi was HeroBook which disappointed me quite a lot, because it is undoubtedly a mediocre equipment of this brand has recently introduced to the market. However, the company has just announced another device, Chuwi Ubook, which may be a really interesting proposal.
Chuwi Ubook is a hybrid, a device consisting of a tablet and keyboard, which can be disconnected at any time. Thanks to this, it can play two roles: a classic tablet and something like a laptop. If necessary, the user can also use the feet to place the equipment on, for example, a desk or a table (inclination up to 145°).
The Chuwi Ubook is equipped with an 11.6-inch touch-screen IPS display. However, the manufacturer has not yet provided its resolution and proportions. The screen can also be operated with the stylus, which detects 1024 pressure levels. At the heart of the tablet is a dual-core Intel Core m3 quad-core processor with a maximum clock frequency of 2.2 GHz. Most likely, it is an Intel Core m3-6Y30 unit with integrated Intel HD Graphics 515 graphics – or at least it is indicated by the chip specification mentioned by Chuwi.
Chuwi Ubook will also offer 8 GB LPDDR3 RAM and an SSD with M.2 2280 connector with a capacity of 128 GB or 1 TB, depending on the configuration. The tablet also includes a USB-C, two full-size USB 3.0, micro HDMI and an audio connector. A separate DC port is used to charge the battery. And since we are talking about the battery, according to the declaration of the Veil, the energy reserve in the cell will last for up to 9.5 hours of operation on a single charge.
Chuwi Ubook works under the control of Windows 10. The manufacturer does not specify whether the Home or Pro, but most probably we are dealing here with the first of the above mentioned versions. The tablet is 9 mm thick and weighs 760 grams. A backlit keyboard with touchpad can also be connected to the tablet via a magnetic connector.
Suggested price of Chuwi Ubook is not known yet. In 16 days’ time, the Kickstarter platform will start raising funds for its production. The manufacturer encourages you to take part in an activity in which the equipment is rewarded. More information about it can be found on the website linked to the source. For those who subscribe to the newsletter, there is also a 25% discount on the device (the number of codes is limited). The first 500 people will be able to buy a Chuwi Ubook with a stylus and keyboard for $349.

I posted for this several days ago. Thank you guys so much for giving me advices. I was almost about to order that F7 Plus from Teclast…
Today CHUWI just drop a bomb on Kickstarter… A 2-in-1 windows tablet called Ubook, with Core M processor, 8GB ram, and 128GB solid state drive, at the price tag of only $349.99(only for the top500 tho)! They finally get rid of the 4GB ram and crappy eMMC storage and released a device that has almost everything I want at this price. Plus, the storage can be expanded to 1 terabyte, which can be very useful for me to put all my CAD drawing and psd files in it.
So, guys, what should I do? Buy the F7 Plus right now, or wait for another month to get the Ubook from Kickstarter??
@oreo Over the years I have used or owned Chuwi products and I must say that their recent products have gotten a lot better in design aesthetics and are almost on par with mainstream products. But recalling that we are working in the middle tier work/study devices this is a very good deal. You get decent functionality without breaking the bank. So I would recommend the wait.
Was doing a little search for a new tablet when I came across this listing. It seems to check a few boxes, Good Design, Good Battery life, Good Storage and Ram and most importantly, Good pricing. So this has now become a very strong contender for my next Tablet buy.
This company has been known to produce good devices from time to time, and sometimes not so good ones. But I believe this is a great hit as it offers decent storage and Ram with an included Keyboard and Pen. The price doesn't hurt either which is always a good starting point.
SO yes I am very much considering this 2-in-1 tablet as a nice addition for the casual meeting and late night Netflix binge-watching.
Just saw a news post today saying that if the kick starter reaches $400k, then they wil be adding full function USB Type-C to the tablet. To me that was the only down side to buying this device and with this I am now totally on board buying this tablet. I love fast charging and the ability to use that with this tablet just makes it a steal. Now I can only pray to the gods of Chuwi that they include wireless charging but even I know that is a stretch… lol
One of my major issues with the tablets from China is that they come only in 2GB Ram 32 GB storage or 4GB ram and 64GB storage. But this finally gives a decent option by having more ram, 8GB to be precise and 128GB of storage. Granted its not NVMe storage but its still more storage than you would get normally for that price. So yes, This is just perfect for me.
Is that a perfect 2 in 1 for web development on the go ..?
Which processor is the best between core i3 and core m3?
Pls help me giving me the information.
