Lenovo’s first always-connected PC is the Miix 630
New Snapdragon-powered tablet-PC announced at CES 2018
Lenovo is joining HP, Asus and other companies in Microsoft’s Snapdragon-powered PC adventure. The first tablet by Lenovo looks like another Surface clone, but it’s called the Miix 630. It’s based on the Snapdragon 835 processor, which promises a great battery life – up to 20 hours, and connectivity to LTE networks. Thanks to the ARM processor inside, devices like the Lenovo Miix 630 will use minimal battery life while in standby, just like phones.
Miix 630 runs Windows 10 S – the lightweight version of Windows 10 with Store apps, but it could be upgraded to Windows 10 Pro for free within 180 days of product activation.
Prices start at $799 for the basic configuration with a 12.3-inch screen, 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. More expensive versions will offer 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB storage. Adreno 540 graphics is integrated into the processor. In terms of cameras, the tablet has a 13MP rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter.
The Miix 630 has a USB Type-C connector, nano-SIM slot, SD card reader, 3.5mm audio jack and a pen. It’s 15.6mm thick and has a weight of just 1.33 kg. Sales start in April.
