Using the prefix “Hi” is another way of saying “iPad” without being sued. Tecno did the same thing for their OS.
You may not heard of the company Chuwi, or you may have only seen them online selling suspiciously affordable laptops and tablets, but they are a reputable company. Though, just not official here in the Philippines.
The company has launched their newest tablet called the HiPad Pro, a really good way to sneak around copyright naming laws. Naming aside, the tablet has a flagship feel to it, even carrying a 10.8in. 2.5K (2560x1600px) IPS LCD screen with a dot notch, and also comes with several accessories. It also comes with a MicroSD Card slot so you can easily expand the storage.
The tablet also features a Helio G95 chip. Not quite a new chipset, but still kicks in the budget segment. It, unfortunately, does not have access to 5G services but does offer dual-band Wi-Fi. There is a single 8mp main camera and also a single 5mp front camera on a dot notch.
The new HiPad Pro is the successor to the 2021 HiPad Pro with a Snapdragon 662 chip inside. According to the company, the new tablet addresses the shortcomings of its predecessor, such as the lower-resolution screen and an older chipset. The new HiPad Pro also is Google WideVine L1 certified, which means you can enjoy high-resolution content available on streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
The HiPad Pro would be available around this month in selected markets. The company is selling the tablet for just under $300 (~Php 15.3K), but I’m not so sure it will be available here in the Philippines.
