CES 2018: Lenovo Unveils Its Snapdragon-Based Windows 10 PC

CES 2018: Lenovo Unveils Its Snapdragon-Based Windows 10 PC”

Its display is reportedly covered by a sheet of Corning's Gorilla Glass panel to protect the screen from bumps and scratches.

The Miix 630 starts at United States dollars 799.99 and is expected to be available beginning in Q2 2018 from Lenovo and mobile operators in selected markets.

For those who are interested in an Always Connected Windows PC with ultra long battery life, make sure the Windows 10 S is not limiting for your particular usage.

Its upper part slopes at an angle toward the back side while the bottom edge flaunts a curved design. The Miix is a tablet, with an attachable keyboard cover that includes a kickstand, just like the Envy. While there is no microSD card slot on offer, the 2-in-1 does come with an SD card reader.

On the right flank sits the volume rocker toward the top, a speaker grille, and USB Type-C port. The Miix 630 runs on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 SoC and promises impressive battery life along with a great Always-connected PC experience. Its full-sized backlit keyboard comes with precision touchpad as well and the digital pen will support up to 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity. Graphics processing is taken care of by the chip's integrated Adreno 540 GPU clocked at 710 MHz. It also features a 12.3-inch WUXGA+ touchscreen, on which users can draw and edit with the Digital Pen.

It features a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with support for Windows Hello. Memory is 4 GB or 8 GB depending on confirmation, while storage ranges from 64 GB, through 128 GB, and finally tops out at 256 GB.

Note the "S" though: if you would prefer Windows 10 Pro then it's possible to upgrade from the streamlined version of Windows, which we suspect will have some impact to battery life, but we would recommend overall for versatility. The short of it is 20 hours of use time, up to a month of standby, or about a week of general use, without the need to turn the device off, all built around ARM architecture instead of x86.

The Lenovo Miix 630 will go on sale in the second quarter of 2018, with prices starting at $799.
