Before we start
Microsoft’s Surface series was among the first to offer a 2-in-1 concept with powerful hardware and smooth performance. Thus, by buying such a hybrid PC product, you will have both a tablet and a laptop. All you have to do is to dock a keyboard and plug in a mouse, and it will turn into a full-featured notebook. When you don’t need to work, unplug the peripherals, and it will serve as a regular table. However, the 2-in-1 tablets from the Surface category cost too much. And many people think of its effectiveness when buying such a product. We mean many customers will prefer a laptop or a 360-degree convertible laptop and their decision will be justified.
However, things change when it comes to 2-in-1 tablets with humble specs. Here, we can find only a few brands that are offering truly acceptable products – Chuwi and Teclast. Today, we are going to take a look at a new 2-in-1 tablet coming our way from the latter, namely the Teclast M40 Air.
Teclast M40 Air tablet
Honestly, the Teclast M40 Air is not a genuine hybrid tablet. We mean there are no connectors to dock a keyboard. But you can easily use a wireless keyboard, and all we said above will also work for this tablet.
Anyway, this tablet has several advantages. When saying this and when dealing with a Teclast product, you should know that it’s not about hardware. Usually, products from this price range come with balanced hardware that allows users to do basic tasks and play ordinary games, but they are not acceptable for doing heavy graphics work and playing large games. Frankly, the Teclast M40 Air is not aiming for this.
Instead, this tablet can boast of a large high-definition screen, good storage scalability, and long-lasting battery life.
Currently, tablets have got another mission entertainment. They are widely used in education. In this regard, the Teclast M40 Air provides performance that will not let you down.
In the development of tablet PCs for many years, Teclast has a profound understanding of usage habits. So, the company’s M series is more aimed at young customers. We mean their requirements and use habits differ from those of other users. We mean young customers pay attention to concrete features, including fashionable appearance and better performance.
The appearance that young customers want
First of all, the Teclast M40 Air continues the stylish, dynamic, and youthful design concept of the M series. It comes with an integrated aluminum alloy body. Honestly, many models from the same price range still use a large plastic back cover. But the M40 Air has a complete metal body with a thickness of 7.8mm and a weight of 430g. Thus, we are talking about a light, thin, and comfortable tablet that you can carry with you anywhere you go.
On the front, the Teclast M40 Air sports a 10.1-inch BOE IPS screen with a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels. It also supports a 120Hz refresh rate and a 78-channel touch matrix. The company has powered it by a self-developed T-Colour2.0 color optimization technology. The latter makes the screen look more colorful, while the content is displayed more clearly. No matter what you are doing – watching movies, playing games, or reading e-books – it will provide a good viewing experience.
Hardware and connectivity
Inside, our protagonist hosts MediaTek’s Helio P60 processor. It is a low-end chip with an octa-core architecture design and a maximum frequency of 2.0GHz. Thus, this chip is capable of performing quite well in many daily scenarios. But we recommend not to think of it as anything very powerful. Also, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage help the processor handles most of the tasks. Also, it is easy to load more applications without any lag.
At the same time, the Teclast M40 Air also has a gyroscope sensor and four-way speakers that are rare at the same level. They allow users to have better gaming, audio, and video experience. This is especially true when playing racing games as well as shooting games.
This tablet comes with great connectivity options. First, it comes with a dual-card dual-standby and dual-band WiFi network that supports 4G connectivity. So the tablet can have smooth network connectivity and a fast network speed experience. Apart from this, it supports Bluetooth 5.0 technology and Beidou, GPS, and other navigation systems. So you can use it in multiple scenarios without a smartphone or another device.
Though the tablet is very slim and lightweight, the manufacturer didn’t sacrifice the battery capacity. Under the hood, the tablet carries a 6000mAh large-capacity battery, which supports 18W fast charging.
In terms of software, the tablet runs the native Android 11 system. So you won’t find those annoying third-party apps and senseless widgets coming our way from infamous Chinese companies. Also, it allows the tablet to have longer battery life.
Teclast has always adhered to the concept of being close to users and listening to users’ needs when manufacturing products. In this sense, the Teclast M40 Air is what young customers need at a low price.
