The Chuwi UBook X is a 2-in-1 Windows tablet for those who are operating on a budget. At US$399, Chuwi has included a 12-inch 1440p IPS display, an active stylus, 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and a 256 GB SSD. The tablet has a 38 Wh battery, a quad-core processor and comes bundled with a keyboard cover for orders placed by August 8.

The latest device in the Chuwi UBook series is here and with an emphasis on value for money. Called the UBook X, the 2-in-1 Windows tablet follows on from the UBook and UBook Pro, both of which we have already reviewed. The UBook X shares many components with its UBook siblings, but it differs in a few areas.

Firstly, the UBook X has a higher resolution display than the UBook or UBook Pro, which have 1080p and 1,280p panels, respectively. By contrast, the UBook X has a 1440p panel and a 3:2 aspect ratio. The panel measures 12-inches, which makes it 0.3-inches smaller than the one that Chuwi includes in the UBook Pro. The IPS display has been paired with an Intel Celeron N4100, which is a 6 W quad-core chip that Chuwi also uses in the UBook and UBook Pro.

Also on board is a 256 GB SSD and 8 GB of LPDDR4 dual-channel RAM, along with several ports. Specifically, Chuwi has included a 3.5 mm jack, a microSD card reader, a micro HDMI port and multiple USB ports. Underpinning the UBook X is a 38 Wh battery, which Chuwi has fitted in a 9 mm thick chassis. The UBook X weighs 780 g without its bundled HiPen or detachable keyboard. The latter only comes bundled with orders until August 8, though.

The UBook X is currently available to order from Chuwi for US$399. The company implies that this is pre-order pricing though, so the device may rise to US$489 after August 8.
