The Lenovo Miix line of tablets has already established itself as one of the best Windows 8 tablets on the market. Now it seems that the company is getting ready for the upgrade to the third generation.
Having leaked in far-East China, the Lenovo Miix 3 10-inch model looks to be a worthy upgrade of the current line. It will come with Windows 8.1 out of the box, but there’s not so much time until Windows 10 is around, so it’s worth taking a look at.
The 10-inch display features a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and has a quad-core Intel Atom Z3735F Bay Trail processor under the hood, along with 2GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
The Lenovo Miix 2 had an Atom Z3740 model which is said to be more efficient, so if this leaked one turns out to be indeed part of the new Lenovo Miix, then it will be a big letdown.
The new Miix 3 sports a better screen, as the Lenovo Miix 2 only had a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The Miix 3 10 also has a new keyboard design, which looks really nice and free, if this report is anything to go by.
It seems that the tablet part is no longer resting in a slot in the keyboard, but is rather housed in a case that can coat both its sides. You can also fold the case which can act as a stand for the tablet. It’s also possible to adjust the viewing angles, which is a nice from the Miix 2 keyboard dock that had a fixed position.
There’s also a 2MP front-facing camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, micro HDMI, micro USB and a full-sized USB port. A 25 Whr battery / 6500 mAh is powering this baby, and at least on paper, it seems to handle the job.
Rumors suggest that the 10-inch version of the Lenovo Miix 3 will have a price of 300 euros, but we’ll have to wait and see if this will be true or not.
