Lenovo's first Snapdragon Windows device Miix 630 comes with a detachable keyboard and digital pen

Its display is reportedly covered by a sheet of Corning's Gorilla Glass panel to protect the screen from bumps and scratches.

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.

Despite its small-and-light package, the Miix 630 still manages to pack a Windows Hello-compatible camera and enough battery power for 20 hours of local video playback.

The Lenovo Miix 630 is constructed with a metal body that features a matte-textured finish. Along the curved bottom edge is the connector that accepts the magnetic keyboard folio cover.

Overall, the build quality appears to be premium and sturdy, which looks classy together with its keyboard cover.




The processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 - a processor commonly found in high-end Android smartphones like the Pixel 2, LG V30 and HTC U11.

The Lenovo Miix 630 comes with the Lenovo digital pen with 1,024 levels of sensitivity so you can draw, sketch or annotate with Windows Ink for a natural pen-on-paper experience. Graphics processing is taken care of by the chip's integrated Adreno 540 GPU clocked at 710 MHz.

The Lenovo Miix 630 features a detachable 12.3-inch touchscreen, 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of SSD storage which can be expanded using the microSD card slot. In terms of imaging, you get a 13MP resolution rear camera and an IR-enabled 5MP resolution webcam with Windows Hello support. 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.

Carrying a starting price of $800, the 2-in-1 laptop is slated to launch Q2 2018.
