Lenovo reveals ARM-based, always-connected Miix 630 2-in-1

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

The detachable keyboard can serve as a screen protector when you're on the go.

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.

Lenovo claims up to 20 hours of battery life, which is the main selling point of these new Snapdragon PCs.

The laptop is integrated with 4G LTE for faster downloads. While there is no microSD card slot on offer, the 2-in-1 does come with an SD card reader.

On the right flank sits the volume rocker toward the top, a speaker grille, and USB Type-C port.

Overall, the build quality appears to be premium and sturdy, which looks classy together with its keyboard cover. The company announced at a press event, the new Miix 630 which will be coming with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. RAM starts off with a standard 4GB that can be upgraded to 8GB.
