It is known to all that Cube has sold more Intel Core M powered tablets than any other Chinese manufacturers, and it is also the first Chinese brand to release a Windows tablet powered by the latest Skylake Core M processor – the Cube i9.

Cube has formally announced the Cube i9 in a press conference in Shenzhen on January, 14th. The Cube i9 is the successor to the Cube i7, it’s a large 12.2″ Surface Pro 3/4 clone with a 6th Gen Intel Skylake Core M3-6Y30 fanless processor. 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD. It’s the same processor used in the Surface Pro 4 M3.

The screen is an IPS 1920 x 1200 panel and the tablet has a design very similar to the latest Surface Pro, with a 2 position kickstand and keyboard type cover style dock.

The tablet also features a full sized USB 3.0 port and a USB 3.1 Type-C port. It also have dual left and right speakers, d/c in charging and MicroSD card slot.

There are a couple of disappointments, it’s a shame there is no stylus support and it’s not taking advantage of the Surface Pro 4 2160 x 1440 screen, but it should not be long before Cube releases an i9 Stylus version with stylus support like they did with the i7.

The Cube i9, which offers two color options, will sell for RMB2,999 in China, which is around $455. The keyboard cover will likely be sold separately, but we can still estimate a total price lower than that of the Cube i7 ($547) when it went on sale last January.
