Chinese device maker Chuwi’s latest Android tablet has a familiar-looking design. It’s basically a clone of Lenovo’s Yoga line of Android tablets, complete with a built-in kickstand that lets you prop up the tablet on a table.

But while Lenovo’s tablets are powered by quad-core MediaTek processors, the new Chuwi model has a more powerful MediaTek octa-core chip.

Chuwi Yoga clone

Chuwi showed off its new tablet at the HTKDC show in Hong Kong, where the folks at PadNews got some details about the upcoming device.

The tablet is powered by a MediaTek MT6595 processor. That’s the company’s new 8-core chip that pairs 4 ARM Cortex-A17 cores with 4 lower-power Cortex-A7 cores. It also features support for 802.11ac WiFi and PowerVR Series 6 graphics with support for 4K video playback and displays up to 2560 x 1600 pixels.

Chuwi hasn’t finalized the specs for its tablet, so there’s no official word on the price, launch date, or some other features. But don’t be surprised if you start to see this Yoga clone show up at stores soon. While Chuwi devices are usually aimed at the Chinese market, it’s not hard to find Chuwi tablets from international retail marketplaces such as AliExpress.
