Chuwi VX8 3G: Intel Inside, Samsung Outside

Just an item for a tablet I likely will not cover further (unless a variant runs Windows; then I’ll monitor for reviews).

In a Weibo communique, Chuwi sneak-peeked its seventh tablet of 2014:

Chinese:

[话筒][给力]驰为数码新品不断,最新8寸intel芯VX8 3G通话平板暴光。全新的外观设计艳惊四座。驰为最近出品的平板电脑,在外观设计上下足了功夫,一改公模平板呆板、毫无设计感的陋习,而且诸多新鲜元素的加入,使产品的实用性和观赏性大为提升。http://t.cn/RvriEzV

Google Translate:

[Microphone] [to force] Chi for digital new products constantly, with the new 8-inch tablet intel core VX8 3G call exposure. The new design Yan scared four. Chi was recently produced tablet down enough in the design effort, a change in public mode flat dull, there is no sense of design habits, but added many new elements, the product of practical and ornamental greatly improved. http://t.cn/RvriEzV

Bizarrely, Chuwi links to their Jingdong page for the prior VX8 model, which contains a MediaTek CPU.

They’re clearly not the same tablet. The VX8 has a curved top while the upcoming VX8 3G is flat and looks somewhat like one of Samsung’s latest tablets.

This is Chuwi’s first second Intel Inside tablet [the 9.7-inch V99i was their first]. Will they be doing a version of it with Windows? I wouldn’t be surprised.
