Teclast’s latest tablet is about the size of an Apple iPad, but it’s cheaper than most current iPads, runs Windows 10 software, and features an Intel Atom Cherry Trail processor.

The Teclast X98 Pro is available for pre-order from Geekbuying or AliExpress for $270 or less.

I haven’t had a chance to test this tablet yet, but on paper it sounds almost too good to be true. Here’s a run-down of the specs:

  • 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel IPS display
  • Intel Atom X5-Z8500 quad-core Cherry Trail processor
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB eMMC storage
  • microSD card slot for up to 64GB of removable storage
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras
  • Micro HDMI port
  • Stereo speakers
  • 8,000 mAh battery

The tablet measures 9.4″ x 6.7″ x 0.3″ and weighs about 1.1 pounds.

Teclast is a Chinese device maker that’s been offering low-cost Android tablets for a few years, and inexpensive Windows models since 2014. This will be one of the company’s first to ship with Windows 10 as well as one of the first to feature an Intel Cherry Trail processor.

While those features alone wouldn’t necessarily drive up the price, the tablet also has a high-resolution display and more RAM and flash storage than most Windows tablets in this price range. So I’m kind of surprised to see this thing priced under $300.

Unlike some Chinese device makers, I haven’t heard any stories about Teclast shipping products with unlicensed versions of Windows.

  1. I’ve been following this tablet, and I’m really interested to see an in-depth review.

    I’m currently waiting for pricing and launch date on the Asus T100HA, and I will have to choose between these two.

    The screen resolution of the Teclast is a huge plus. But the 12+ hr battery, keyboard, and USB-C on the T100HA is pretty convincing.

  2. Many Chinese Tablets have dismal batter life and last only like 5 hours or so. Teclast seems to be one of the better companies, so when 8+ hour “real” battery life is confirmed, I may be interested.

  3. Looks like a real steal doesn’t it. P.S. last paragraph should be “I haven’t heard”

  4. A few things:

    The dual boot (android/Win10) version will be released soon. But you probably will be able to update these to dual boot down the road.

    The 3G model will also be released soon, but up to this point Teclast does not support USA 3G bands, unlike Onda, whose models work on AT&T/Cricket. It is generally only a $20 premium for the 3G versions, and is a nice feature to have for a mobile device.

    Onda has decided to skip Cherry Trail and go with a more powerful Core M version, but it is more expensive ($379 https://www.onda-tablet.com/onda-v919-3g-core-m-tablet-pc.html ) Or, you can go with any of the older Z3736 Bay trail dual boot models that currently sell for about $200. And Windows only models for $150. Lots of options. TechTablet is a good resource.

    1. I’d go for the non-3G version anyways. The previous version of the Teclast X98 3G model had a funny quirk, its screen ran at 48hz instead of the 60hz offered on the non-3G model. Really stupid.

  5. don’t really trust the chinese tablets, but love that aspect ratio

    1. I think we need a review to compare those to SOC,just responses,battery life and browsing don’t need for gpu.

  6. Wow that does sound a little too good to be true. I would be very interested in seeing a revue of that tablet once it comes out.
