Chuwi, the Chinese relative of Chewbacca – no, I jest, they happen to be a China-based device manufacturer, and their latest Android-powered tablet seemed to have taken a major page right out of Lenovo’s Yoga range of tablets that run on the Android mobile operating system. I suppose you can even call it a clone of Lenovo’s offerings, where it boasts of a kickstand as well so that you will be able to prop up Chuwi’s tablet on the table, leaving your hands free to shovel some pizza into your mouth as you watch the latest downloaded movie there.
Considering how Lenovo’s tablets are powered by quad-core MediaTek processors, the new Chuwi tablet will go one up on its “inspiration” – by featuring an octa-core processor from MediaTek, which theoretically speaking, is more powerful. This new tablet was paraded at the HTKDC show in Hong Kong, where it runs on the octa-core MediaTek MT6595 processor, has 802.11ac Wi-Fi support, accompanied by a PowerVR Series 6 graphics chipset that caters for 4K video playback and displays up to 2560 x 1600 pixels.
Other hardware specifications for this tablet has yet to be finalized, and neither do we have the confirmed details for its pricing and availability. Still, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, isn’t it?
