Chuwi HiPad Max: New Android tablet launches with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 chipset, dual-SIM connectivity, Widevine L1 and a large battery
Chuwi has announced the HiPad Max, a tablet with a 10.36-inch display that resolves at 2,000 x 1,200 pixels. According to the company, the display peaks at 400 cd/m² with an 84% screen-to-body ratio. Also, Chuwi alleges that the large display has 7 mm-thick bezels on all sides. However, ETA Prime has already shown that Chuwi's marketing images are more than a little deceiving when it comes to display bezel thickness.
Additionally, the HiPad Max relies on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, a 4G chipset with four ARM Cortex-A73 and Cortex-A53 CPU cores, plus an Adreno 610 GPU. For reference, we have tested the Snapdragon 680 in the Moto G42, Moto G52 and Redmi Note 11, among others. Chuwi complements the mid-range chipset with 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of expandable storage and dual-SIM connectivity. Thankfully, the HiPad Max supports WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac too, which should ensure fast WiFi connectivity on most networks.
Chuwi adds that the HiPad Max measures 246.5 x 156.25 x 8 mm and weighs approximately 440 g. Moreover, the tablet features a 7,000 mAh battery and runs Android 12, mirroring the Blackview Tab 13. Currently, Chuwi is only offering the tablet through its AliExpress official store. As it stands, the tablet costs US$199.99, although it is slated to rise to US$399.98 after Chuwi's flash sale ends on August 26. The latter price is difficult to believe though, considering the tablet's specifications. In other words, do not be surprised if Chuwi prices the HiPad Max for less than US$399.98 after August 26 rolls around.
