First Look: Hi13 2-in-1 Tablet from Chuwi

Announced in November of last year and then revealed at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, the Hi13 2-in-1 tablet is a powerhouse and is positioned as a direct competitor with Microsoft’s Surface Book and Apple’s iPad Pro. I’ve tested and reviewed Chuwi tablets before (see: CHUWI Hi10 Pro 2 in 1 Ultrabook Tablet PC and CHUWI HI10 PLUS Tablet PC) and have found them to be pretty significant competition.

The Hi13 is on its way to me for testing and review. I’m pretty quick to turn around these reviews so check back shortly. In the interim, here’s a first look at the Hi13, including the specs and a competitive comparison chart.

The Hi13 will be available for order on February 20 and priced at $369.
