Chinese tablet maker Cube has revealed its next tablet will sport an Intel Core M Broadwell processor.
While we’ve seen a number of companies launch tablets, notebooks, and 2-in-1 hybrids with this chipset, the Cube I7 is the first tablet of its type that I’ve heard about which is designed specifically for the Chinese market.
Like most other Chinese tablets though, it’s probably just a matter of time before you can have a Cube I7 shipped internationally.
Cube’s upcoming tablet has an 11.6 inch display with 178 degree viewing angles.
It’s also extraordinarily thin: Cube says the tablet measures
just 5.8mm (about 0.23 inches) thick, which suggests that the Cube I7 features passive cooling and a silent, fanless design.
Update: Despite the 5.8mm mentioned in Cube’s marketing documents according to a retail listing the system might actually be 9.5mm (about 0.37 inches) thick.
Other details probably won’t be announced until Cube holds an official launch event on January 6th, but we already know that the tablet runs Windows software and has a steel roll cage.
Update 2: PadNews has some real-world photos of the tablet and its keyboard dock.

It’s not 5.8 it’s 9.8mm! https://techtablets.com/2015/01/core-m-5y10-powered-cube-i7-now-aliexpress/
I bought a U30GT2 cube tablet once. It broke down -I’ve sent it to them, they’ve returned a broken tablet again. I’ve sent it back again – they’ve stopped responding. So they ripped me off money and a tablet and I’ve spent ~70$ on shipping things to China.
Well, I can tell they saved on design. Not even a render, maybe made in MS Paint? 🙂
