Back in June of last year, Qualcomm has announced that their flagship SoC will power future Windows 10 PCs. And now, Lenovo has announced their first machine to sport the Snapdragon 835 chipset — the Lenovo Miix 630 2-in-1 detachable.
At first look, the Lenovo Miix 630 looks really identical to Microsoft’s Surface Pro. From the kickstand at the back, the accompanying stylus, and the detachable backlit keyboard — everything is kind of reminiscent of Microsoft’s for-creatives 2-in-1 machine.
But what sets the Lenovo Miix 630 apart is the processor. As stated earlier, this thing packs a Snapdragon 835 mobile chipset. This contributed to the Miix 630’s ultra-slim profile and hopefully, the lack of fans will make it really quiet without sacrificing the thermals.
It also packs all the other essential features that assure you’d stay portable. It has 4G LTE, runs on the light and undemanding Windows 10 S operating system, and there’s a 12.3-inch WUXGA+ touchscreen so you can use it while on the go.
The device is only 15.6mm thick and weights at around 1.33kg. According to Lenovo, the battery can offer 20 hours of local video playback.
Lenovo Miix 630 will be available in a 4GB RAM + 64GB/128GB storage variant, or a higher 8GB RAM + 256GB storage configuration. The price starts at USD799.99 (around Php40,000) and is expected to arrive in the 2nd quarter of the year.
Last month, ASUS also announced the NovaGo convertible laptop which runs on the same Snapdragon 835 processor.
