As part of the promotion efforts for its new tablet, the CHUWI Hi9 Plus, the company is marketing its offering as an alternative to the iPad Pro, a much more affordable alternative. The company claims that its tablet is very sturdy, that it offers great build quality. The CHUWI Hi9 Plus is made out of aluminum, and CHUWI says that its aluminum alloy shell has gone through more than 60 complex processes before it made it to the final product, while CHUWI also says that you’ll get a better grip because of it, at least compared to most other tablets, as aluminum is quite slippery, no matter what finish it offers.
Another CHUWI Hi9 Plus feature that the company is emphasizing is the device’s display. The CHUWI Hi9 Plus features a 10.8-inch fully-laminated OGS display, and we’re looking at a 2560 x 1600 display here. The battery in this tablet is also something that CHUWI wanted to emphasize, as the company claims it included a high-density lithium-ion battery in the CHUWI Hi9 Plus, while a number of other OEMs use low-density batteries, says CHUWI. The CHUWI Hi9 Plus’ battery has a capacity of 7,000mAh, and it is not removable. The device actually weighs around 500 grams, and it is over 130 grams lighter than the iPad Pro, which weighs 631 grams. The CHUWI Hi9 Plus is also very thin, especially for a tablet, as it’s only 8.1mm thick, in case you were wondering.
Now, as far as its other specs are concerned, the CHUWI Hi9 Plus can be considered a mid-range tablet, but it’s not a slouch when it comes to specs, not at all. The device is fueled by the Helio X27 64-bit deca-core processor, while it also includes 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. The device comes with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, and it supports 4G LTE connectivity. A single 8-megapixel camera is included on the back of this device, while you will find an 8-megapixel camera on its front side as well. The CHUWI Hi9 Plus’ bezels are not too thick, but they’re thick enough that you can grip the device properly. The CHUWI Hi9 Plus is actually a lot cheaper than the iPad Pro, as it costs only $199, which is approximately one-fifth of the iPad Pro’s price. You can now grab the CHUWI Hi9 Plus from AliExpress for only $199.99, as part of the 11.11 sale.
