Yes, a second version of the Teclast X98 Air!
If you were about to order the original Teclast X98 Air, don’t. This new one uses the Intel 3736F with a peak frequency of 2.16 GHz! That should bring a measurable improvement in speed. I wouldn’t be surprised if an honest AnTuTu score breaks into the 30,000-level.
The Weibo communiqué:
The Jingdong listing:
I expected second-gen tablets to come. But this took me by surprise. It’s weeks earlier than I thought — and Teclast dropped this bombshell on the day before the big national holiday in China. Competitors must be shocked.
With this move, Teclast is trying to pull away from Onda and Ramos and establish itself as a company that doesn’t intend to sleep. They’ve become aggressive. It’s taken them just three months to upgrade the original X98 Air. This has to be some sort of record for any company.
I wouldn’t be happy if I’d just bought the first version. But this is how the technology game rolls.
Anyone who buys this should expect an X98 Air III in January. You have been warned.
