But they also offer always-on LTE connections, which is a throwback to a once-common laptop feature, a built-in data connection, that's been rarely seen in recent years.
Lenovo says the Miix 620 2-in-1 will be going on sale in March or April in select markets. 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. Look for a much more in-depth review once we get our review unit but for now, here's a quick video of the device in action. The detachable keyboard can serve as a screen protector when you're on the go. Powering the 2-in-1 is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor clocked at 2.45 GHz.
It is unconfirmed of the other two models likewise boast great battery life like Lenovo's claims.
On the hardware side, the Snapdragon 835 SoC features the integrated Adreno 540 GPU, and the Miix will comes in two RAM options, 4GB or 8GB. It features a 12.3-inch 1920 x 1280 WUXGA+ display with a pixel density of 187 pixels per inch. There's also a rear-mounted 13MP IR camera along with a front-mounted 5MP camera. However, when using the built-in LTE modem and performing regular tasks, that number is expected to come down significantly.
It is hard to know how the Miix 630 really compares in terms of thickness as we only know that the height with the keyboard is 15.6mm (0.6") while HP provided the measurement without the keyboard: "6.9 mm.
Like the Asus NovaGo and HP Envy x2, the Miix 630 runs Windows 10 S - Microsoft's limited education-focused OS variant that only allows users to run Windows apps - but can be updated free of charge to Windows 10 Pro, where it will run full desktop apps using Microsoft's emulator. I/O connectivity includes a single USB Type-C port, an SD card reader, and a microphone/headphone jack.
