Chuwi V88mini tablet to go on sale next week

v88miniThe number of quad-core tablets continues to rise with news Chinese maker Chuwi will launch its V88mini tablet as early as next week.

According to, the new tablet is an Apple iPad mini lookalike with 7.9-inch I-PS (in-plane switching) panel and 1024×768-pixel resolution (sound familiar?). But instead of a dual-core Apple A5 processor, the new V88mini will be yet another tablet to feature Rockchip’s RK3188 quad-core Cortex A9 processor.

The tablet is said to measure only 7.2mm in thickness and weigh in around 385grams It’ll also come with two cameras – a 2MP camera on the front for video conferencing plus a larger 5MP on the rear.

The battery is believed to be a sizeable 5000mAh Lithium-ion unit.

By comparison, Apple’s iPad Mini features the same screen size, type and screen resolution and the same thickness. The iPad mini comes with a 16.3-watt-hour battery, which equates to roughly 4400mAh, so slightly small than the V88mini’s option. Where the iPad mini continues to win out is in weight – it tips the scales at only 308grams for the Wi-Fi version and 312grams for the Wi-Fi+Cellular model.
