Chuwi UBook X: A detachable and 2-in-1 tablet that comes with a pen and keyboard for US$399
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.
