When it comes to portability, tablets certainly have an advantage over traditional laptops. Especially when they can easily be transformed into a laptop with the addition of a keyboard. Apple recently released its best tablet to date, the iPad Pro, but its price is astronomic for the vast amount of users. On the contrary, the Chuwi Hi9 Plus offers the same (if not better) portability at a much lower price.
The Hi9 Plus body is made of aluminum alloy which is not only lightweight but also strong enough to withstand bumps. Chuwi’s tablet shell has undergone more than 60 complex processes to offer a perfect finish and grip. Also, the 10.8″ screen uses OGS full-lamination that reduces two pieces of glass of a common display structure down to one. The benefits are obvious: the weight of the whole machine is reduced, the thickness of the screen is reduced by half, and the transparency is increased. Lastly, battery. Unlike other tablet manufacturers that use low-density batteries, the Hi9 Plus adopts a 7000mAh high-density lithium-ion battery that sports just half the weight and thickness of low-density batteries.
These three key components allowed Chuwi to reduce the thickness down to 8.1mm and a weight to less than 500g. That is 131g lighter than the 631g of the new iPad Pro. But most importantly, the price is a fraction of what the iPad Pro costs. The Hi9 Plus comes at just $199, a fifth of what the iPad Pro costs. So, if you want an affordable alternative to Apple’s beast, you can bet your money on Chuwi Hi9 Plus that is currently on offer on Aliexpress 11.11 promotion.
