To review: The CUBE Talk9X has a Retina-class 9.7 inch IGZO screen, an octa-core MediaTek 8392 CPU with peak frequency of 2GHz (allegedly), 2GBs of RAM, 16GBs of internal storage, a 2MP front and 8MP back camera, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, a 10,000mAh battery, and 3G (WCDMA + TD-SCDMA dual 3G, compatible with GSM — at least in China and probably Europe too). It runs Android 4.4 — without any modifications, from the looks of it.
The CUBE Talk9X is controversial. It uses the octa-core MediaTek 8392. This is the tablet version of the MediaTek 6592. So how is it that the 6592 scores in the 27,000-range of AnTuTu while the 8392 gets 40,000-range again and again?
Reviews are finally appearing for this machine.

I’m not fan of the big fat bezels of the Pipo P1.
But another model might be coming.
And Chuwi is back in the iPad Mini clone business, via a pair of Weibo Communiques.

No other specs, not even size. But Onda’s V9XX tablets are typically 9.7-inch screens.
IMP3Net thinks is the tablet that scored 48,000-range with AnTuTu.

iFive Mini 4: New Information
Rockchip 3288-Based Retina-Class iFive Mini 3! [Updated: Mini 4!]
China is a frikkin press labyrinth. Sometimes products are officially leaked to the press, sometimes there’s a formal press release, sometimes there’s a Weibo communique, and then sometimes the press finds out because a Tmall listing goes live. And then there can be combinations of these!
It’s very, very difficult to find out when products are officially available!
Today I’m taking it as official that the Pipo P1 is released because Pipo itself said so in a Weibo communique:
