Late in 2017 Qualcomm and Microsoft hooked up and came up with the Windows on ARM initiative, that spawned a few interesting 2 in 1 devices. The first came from HP and ASUS and now Lenovo joins the party with the Lenovo Miix 630. It was announced at CES 2018 and obviously we detail this Snapdragon newcomer below.
Things like “Always On” and “huge battery life” will be thrown around a lot for sure related to such devices. The Miix 630 is a 2 in 1 detachable laptop with Windows 10 S in the mix and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. This is a smaller 12.3 inch laptop with dimensions similar to the HP Envy 2x. It weighs 1.33 kilograms and packs a 12.3 inch touch display with a 1920 x 1280 pixel resolution and Corning Glass.
The promise here is that we’ll achieve 20 hours of video playback, on a 48 Wh battery capacity. The package of the device includes a Lenovo digital pen, that lets users draw or take notes directly on the screen in tablet mode. If you want more detailed specs, well aside from the Snapdragon 835 CPU, there’s 4 or 8 GB of RAM and 64, 128 or 256 GB of storage.
On the connectivity front, we’ve got an USB Type-C port, an SD card reader, nano SIM card slot (4G LTE offered). There’s a 13 megapixel main camera here with AF and IF, plus a 5 MP shooter. The keyboard is backlit and Bluetooth 4.1 and WiFi 2X2 are also here. This detachable starts at $799.99 and it should sell from Q2 2018.
