Chuwi Hi13 vs Samsung’s Galaxy Book

by Dimitris Economou 0

Chuwi Hi13 was launched in February 20 and it is undoubtedly the best device that Chuwi has ever made. In the meantime, during the ongoing MWC 2017 in Barcelona, Samsung announced a brand new member of the Galaxy tablet family: Samsung Galaxy Book. Unfortunately, no word on price or availability yet, but it looks like an excellent -and expensive- piece of technology. Since we don’t have any news on the price and release date, we can only compare it spec-wise with the Chuwi Hi13 which is already on the market for $369.

Chuwi Hi13

As you can see, has gone for the same aspect ratio (3:2) and quad-speakers as has the Chuwi Hi13. This display ratio is becoming more and more common lately, with a few companies adopting it. Both machines seem very capable. Of course, the Samsung Book is more powerful for the time being with its Core M processor but will definitely come at a very higher price. As component prices drop, I would expect Chuwi to upgrade the Hi13 with a Core M CPU in the near future.
