Lenovo's first Snapdragon powered PC Miix 630 unveiled today before CES 2018

Lenovo's first Snapdragon powered PC Miix 630 unveiled today before CES 2018

As usual, Lenovo focused on its new lineup of ThinkPads this year at CES, but it did have one consumer product to show off: the Miix 630. According to Lenovo, you can also expect up to 20 hours of battery life from this device which, while sounding outrageous, could be true if you play your cards right day-to-day.

The company didn't provide much detail about the Miix's LTE modem, but we imagine it has the same X16 LTE unit found in Asus' NovaGo and HP's Envy x2.

Its upper part slopes at an angle toward the back side while the bottom edge flaunts a curved design.

The top edge houses the two microphones pinholes and its power button, which also functions as the sleep/wake toggle. You also get the same connectivity advantage as a smartphone, in this case from the Snapdragon 835 with its 4G LTE Cat.11. For wired ports, there's a USB Type-C connector, an SD card reader, a Nano SIM card slot and audio combo jack. RAM starts off with a standard 4GB that can be upgraded to 8GB. The pen supports up to 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity, and unfortunately, there's no tilt support. Graphics processing is taken care of by the chip's integrated Adreno 540 GPU clocked at 710 MHz.


Lenovo Miix 630 features a 12.3-inch WUXGA+ touchscreen display for great visuals and infrared camera with Windows Hello for secure authentication. In terms of imaging, you get a 13MP resolution rear camera and an IR-enabled 5MP resolution webcam with Windows Hello support.

Storage options available are 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB.

Windows 10 S is a lighter version of Windows 10 that is a bit more locked down; it won't run apps that aren't available in the Windows Store.

Performance-wise the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC onboard the Lenovo Miix 630 is as capable as a 7-generation Intel Core-i3 CPU. Moreover, it gives you constant connection even in standby mode, ensuring longer battery life. The Lenovo Mixx 630 will launch sometime between April and June of 2018 and the price tag will be around $799.
