The iLife NG08 8-inch pocket laptop with Gemini Lake processor could be released as the Chuwi MiniBook
Notebook Italia has come across a very interesting diminutive device at a trade fair in China recently. The currently named iLife NG08 is a convertible computer with an 8-inch Full HD (1920x1080) touch display, which features hinges that allow the screen to be folded completely backwards for use as a tablet. Users of the mini-computer can choose either a dual-core Intel Celeron N4000 or a quad-core Intel Celeron N4100 as the SoC.
Complementing the Gemini Lake processor is a choice between 4 GB and 8 GB RAM, 64 or 128 GB eMMC storage, a 3500 mAh battery (that apparently offers up to four hours of video playback), and there is a slot for SSD expansion. The iLife NG08 has an optical trackpad to allow space for the decent-sized keyboard, and there is a fingerprint scanner integrated into the power button.
The mini-computer has a sturdy aluminum frame, stereo speakers, and a 2 MP webcam. It also comes with connectivity options such as USB 2.0 Type-A, USB 3.0 Type-A, USB Type-C, mini-HDMI, microSD reader, and there’s even room for a 3.5 mm audio port. No price or release date for the pocket laptop has been given, but it seems that the iLife NG08 will eventually be repackaged as the Chuwi MiniBook for any market launch.
