The Chinese Surface Go clone will be live before the end of 2019 with extra hardware features not found on the Microsoft version. The UBook follows on the footsteps of the larger UBook Pro which was designed to be a Surface Pro clone.

Not to be confused with the Chuwi UBook Pro, the Chuwi UBook tablet is the smaller and even cheaper version aimed at users considering a Microsoft Surface Go. Indeed, one quick look at the device and the visual similarities between it and the Microsoft equivalent are obvious.

In Chuwi's defense, the UBook has some features going for it not found on the Surface Go including two USB Type-A ports, a Micro-HDMI port, and a Type-C port. Its 11.6-inch 1080p 16:9 display will work better for multimedia playback when compared to the 10-inch 1200p 3:2 display of the Surface Go. Based on our time with the UBook Pro, however, we fully expect the detachable keyboard on the UBook to be more flexible and with spongier keyboard keys than the "proper" Surface Type Cover.

Expect our review on the Chuwi UBook to come soon. In the meantime, check the table below to see the major differences between the UBook and the already shipping UBook Pro.

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.
