Chuwi is taking the crowdfunding route with its latest tablet, the CoreBook

Like the SurBook before it, Chuwi will tap Indiegogo to crowdfund the new CoreBook with a campaign set to start in November.

Meant to compete as a cheaper Surface alternative, the CoreBook will pack a 13.3-inch full HD display, Chuwi says. Inside, Chuwi says to expect a seventh generation Intel Core M3 7Y30 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. An integrated fingerprint sensor will be included as well for a bit of extra security. Lastly, Chuwi says that CoreBook's detachable keyboard can tilt up to 165 degrees.

Aside from the base specs, we'll have to wait until Chuwi kicks off the crowdfunding campaign to learn more. The budget tablet maker says we can expect the campaign to go live on Indiegogo in mid-November, with pricing set around $500. Ahead of the launch, Chuwi is holding a contest on its website, where it is giving away three CoreBooks.

  • Ooo, that looks nice. Wish I could justify it. Chuwi like to use USB-C as well. Much as I like fingerprint Hello on the desktop though (best option for me on that), I do think facial recognition fits better with tablet use.
  • i thing good about windows is you can have any different kind of design and form factor, even something like ipad pro...
    kinda nice...
