[Updated with AnTuTu and Geekbench results]. The tablet is on track to launch next month for only $270 USD. If its upcoming Indiegogo campaign proves successful, then the Alldocube X could be an affordable alternative to the pricier solutions from Apple and Samsung.

(July 17, 2018 update: Alldocube has revealed that the retail price of the tablet will be $270 USD with production set to begin in August. Subscribing to the Alldocube newsletter here will net users a 26 percent discount for a final price of just under $200 USD.)

(August 2, 2018 update: The Alldocube X campaign will launch on August 8th with an early adopter price of $219 and a market price of $269. The specifications below have been updated.)

(August 13, 2018 update: The Indiegogo campaign has successfully raised over $90000 or over three times its stretch goal.)

(August 30, 2018 update: The Alldocube has appeared on both AnTuTu and Geekbench Multi-Core with a score of 103865 points and 3941 points, respectively. Its Geekbench score in particular puts the tablet on par with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 version of the Galaxy S7. Results are impressive considering that the Alldocube X utilizes a budget MediaTek SoC for a much more affordable asking price. The benchmark images are included below)

Chinese manufacturer Alldocube has plans to launch the Alldocube X tablet with flagship-class specifications for a hopefully lower price than competing tablets from Apple or Samsung. Core specifications include:

  • 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display w/ 105 percent NTSC gamut
  • 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution, 300-nit brightness
  • 2.1 GHz Hexa-core MediaTek MT8176 SoC (28 nm) up to 2.1 GHz
  • PowerVR GX6250 GPU @ 600 MHz
  • 4 GB LPDDR3 RAM
  • 64 GB eMMC
  • MicroSD slot (up to 128 GB), fingerprint reader
  • Android 8.1 Oreo
  • 8000 mAh battery w/ Quick Charging (5V/7V/9V @ 2A or 12V @ 1.5A)
  • USB Type-C, 3.5 mm audio (AKM Hi-Fi audio chip)
  • 8 MP rear + 8 MP front cameras
  • 245 x 175 x 6.9 mm

The most noteworthy feature of the tablet will be its Samsung-sourced display since Alldocube is promising very crisp and accurate colors not normally found on inexpensive Chinese tablets. We can only hope that its cheaper 28 nm MediaTek SoC will be up to par when it will inevitably be compared to the 7 nm Apple A12 or Samsung Exynos 9820.

The Alldocube X will launch first on Indiegogo to garner support and public interest before the manufacturer can commit to a mass production schedule. Its Indiegogo campaign is not yet live, but users can follow the news and receive early bird discounts through the official product page below.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
