Lenovo Miix 720 set to battle with Microsoft Surface Pro 4
There’s no doubt that Surface design is a killer design of 2-in-1 tablet, majority of Chinese OEMs copied the design, but not just Chinese OEMs the likes of HP, Asus and Acer copied too and Lenovo is not ashamed to join the league of copycat.
The Miix 720 was unveiled at CES 2017 with a better hardware update Surface Pro never had before, it’s powered by 7th-generation Intel Core i7 “Kaby Lake” processors along with Intel HD 620 graphics, 16GB RAM with 1TD SSD, and of course this will run Windows 10.
The screen size is 12-inch LCD panel (2:3 aspect ratio) with a dense 2880×1920 resolution and 400-nit brightness, front facing speaker is 1MP and yes it does support Windows Hello facial recognition while at the back there’s a 5MP shooter.
The keyboard connector is something similar to Surface Pro line, there’s a magnetic port for keyboard cover with backlighting. Lenovo is very serious about competing, included is a Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C port (something rumoured to come with Surface Pro 5) which also serves as the charging port for the Tablet, 2 Standard USB Ports, a microSD card, and Miix 720 will last up to 8 hours on battery.
The last thing I wanna mention is the Lenovo Active Pen 2 which offer 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity with shortcut buttons.
The Lenovo Miix 720 will be available in April 2017 for a starting price of $999.99 (keyboard cover and Active Pen included) with color option of Iron Gray or Champagne Gold.
