Chuwi DX1

Rotating cameras on smartphones are a fairly novel feature, but on tablets? That’s exactly what Chinese manufacturer Chuwi did with the DX1. The Chuwi DX1 is a fairly decent although unremarkable tablet if you ignore the innovative camera. You’re getting a 6.98 inch HD display, 2GHz MediaTek MT8392 octa-core processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB of storage.

Of course, with the rotating camera, the Chuwi DX1 suddenly becomes a conversation starter. After all, a tablet draws much more attention than a smartphone, and when you start rotating the camera, you’ll be able to get some interesting angles for your shots.

Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that we’ll see the Chuwi DX1 in the local market since they don’t have a presence here, save for a few Divisoria importers, I suppose. If you want to get your hands on one, you’ll have to order through an international online store for 799 Yuan or about Php5.8k plus taxes.

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
