Chuwi readies new V88s and V8s quad-core tablets


Chinese tablet maker Chuwi obviously had trouble deciding which quad-core CPU out of Rockchip’s RK3188 or the Allwinner A31 to choose for its next 8-inch tablet design.

So, it’s decided to use both.

According to, the tablet maker will release the V88s, featuring the Rockchip quad-core processor and the V8s, sporting the Allwinner option.

The V88s packs in the RK3188 into a 7.9-inch chassis with 1024×768-pixel resolution and an I-PS panel, a la Apple iPad. It’ll come with a choice of 1 or 2GB of RAM, 8 or 16GB of flash storage, along with a 2MP camera on the back and a basic VGA version on the front. The battery will be a 5000mAh Lithium-ion type with the weight tipping the scales at 346 grams.

The V8s will be the Allwinner A31 variant, coming in a fractionally larger 8-inch chassis with the same I-PS screen technology and XGA resolution. It’ll have a fixed 1GB memory cache and come with 16GB of flash storage. It appears you’ll only get a single VGA camera. Interestingly, despite including a notably smaller 3600mAh Lithium-ion battery, the V8s will actually weigh more than the V88s – 365 grams to 346.

At this stage, there are no details about pricing or availability but we’ll bring those to you as soon as they come to hand.
