If you chase back the history of Chuwi, you will notice what really earned its popularity among other competitors of the markets out there is the very first Hi8 tablet. In order to sustain the good name of Hi8 and deliver much better user experience, now Chuwi introduces the Hi8 Air, which runs on Windows 10 and Android 5.1 operating system. And they try to convince us that the Chuwi Hi8 Air is an upgrade version of Chuwi Hi8 Pro and we think you should totally take a look .

Chuwi Hi8 Air will come with 8 inch size with resolution of 1920*1200 FHD, and the aspect ratio is 16:10. Inside the device, it’s powered by Intel X5 Cherry Trail Z8350 processor with base frequency clock at 1.44Ghz and turbo frequency clock at 1.92Ghz .

It will feature a metal chasis with space grey/silver finish on the surface, and all-metal around the frame, and it comes with OGS fully laminated LCD as well. In terms of the storage, it’s 2GB  of RAM  and 32GB of eMMC, also, it supports up to 128GB of TF card storage expansion.

The battery inside is 4000mAh and it comes with bluetooth 4.0 version. When it comes to the connectivity, it has 1*micro USB, 1*micro HDMI ( 1080P output ), and a 3.5 mm headphone jack for daily use .

And the accessories packed in the box, there are 5V/2A charger, OTG cable, and a bluetooth keyboard .

The specs sheet doesn’t seem strong compared to other latest tablet from Chuwi lineups like the SurBook Pro, Hi9 Air and Mini PC, so we can see clearly that it’s custom for the student groups, with that being said, we should expect a very decent price tag of it.

It does not make much sense to launch this tablet with only 32GB of internal storage and dual operating systems. You only have to see the section of this Hi8 Pro forum about complaints and problems that people have with the little internal storage available.

Located the Hi8 Pro for about € 80/100 currently on the market, at what price are we going to see for this new Chuwi Hi8 Air? If you want to have a place in the market, it can not be more than 90 € your starting price.
What version of Android will it incorporate?A while ago came the information that by issues of the Intel processor could not update the version of Android in the Hi10 Pro and Hi10 Plus, so I take for granted that this new tablet will carry the version of Android 5.1

If something is missing in the family of Chuwi devices is a 10.1 "tablet with Android 7 or 8 with 64GB of storage. It would be of good acceptance among users and even more so if it was compatible with the keyboard of the Hi10 Pro.

I do not understand the vision of the future to this new Hi8 Air.
It is a vision and personal opinion of what this novelty seems to me.

32Gb ram with dual OS is a big mistake...What will be left to use? In my opinion 64gb is already to little for a dual OS...

Price should be sub 100, definitly!
