Lenovo Miix 630 came to our attention earlier this year, as it debuted at CES 2018. It’s a 2 in 1 tablet with a Snapdragon CPU and it was gone from our radar till now. It just came up again, as the device reached the FCC.
This is Lenovo’s first Windows 10 computer with an ARM-based CPU and it’s also a 12.3 inch tablet with a detachable keyboard, that makes it be used like a notebook. That’s aside from being a slate. Inside it we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and the OS of choice is Windows 10 S. You can also swap to Windows 10 Pro free of charge, within 180 days of the device activation. Other updates like the ones related to the gpupdate force command, must also be considered.
Oddly enough we don’t have a release date for the device, but we do know it appeared at the FCC website this week, so it’s getting closer. The device packs 4 GB of RAM (DDR4-1866), 128 GB of UFS 2.1 storage and the screen is a Full HD IPS panel with 400 nits of brightness. There’s also support for the Lenovo Digital Pen. It also comes with an USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer.
A microSD card slot is also here, plus an audio jack, stereo speakers, a 13 MP back camera, a 5 MP front camera. There’s also an infrared camera with Windows Hello facial recognition. There’s also 4G LTE, WiFi ac and Bluetooth 4.1. Just like the other Windows 10 S machines, this is the type of device that goes past 20 hours of usage time. This device continues in the same vein of the ASUS NovaGo and HP Envy x2.
The price is a bit high though, with expectations being around $800.
