Budget-oriented Fydetab Duo convertible with ARM-based processor coming soon
The Fydetab Duo convertible is assembled by the developers of FydeOS - a popular fork of Chromium OS. Design-wise, this convertible looks similar to a Microsoft Surface Pro with a detachable kickstand and keyboard, but the QHD screen is slightly smaller at 12.35 inches (2560 x 1600).
In order to make the device as affordable as possible, the FydeOS team is looking to equip it with a Rockchip ARM-based octa-core processor. The 3588S SoC from Rockchip features an 8 nm Cortex-A76 + Cortex-A55 CPU cluster clocked at 2.4 GHz, as well as a quad-core Mali-G610 GPU and a 6 TOPS NPU. RAM capacity is limited to 8 GB LPDDR4X and storage options include 64 GB and 128 GB eMMC, but users can expand capacities via a microSD card reader.
Port selection offers only one USB-C 3.1 connector with DisplayPort and charging functionalities plus an audio jack. Wireless connectivity is provided via a Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 4.2 card. Other features include a 5 MP front cam, 42 Wh battery with fast charging support, and a stylus. The tablet part is 8.55 mm thick and weighs 890 g, or 1.13 kg with kickstand and keyboard.
This device will soon go up for pre-orders via a crowdfunding campaign, but pricing and availability info has not yet been disclosed.
