Lenovo Miix 630 Reaches the FCC Ahead of its Commercial Debut

By Radu Iorga

came to our attention earlier this year, as it debuted at CES 2018. It’s a 2 in 1 tablet with a Snapdragon CPU and it was gone from our radar till now. It just came up again, as the device reached the FCC.

This is Lenovo’s first Windows 10 computer with an ARM-based CPU and it’s also a 12.3 inch tablet with a detachable keyboard, that makes it be used like a notebook. That’s aside from being a slate. Inside it we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and the OS of choice is Windows 10 S. You can also swap to Windows 10 Pro free of charge, within 180 days of the device activation.

Oddly enough we don’t have a release date for the device, but we do know it appeared at the FCC website this week, so it’s getting closer. The device packs 4 GB of RAM (DDR4-1866), 128 GB of UFS 2.1 storage and the screen is a Full HD IPS panel with 400 nits of brightness. There’s also support for the Lenovo Digital Pen. It also comes with an USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer.

A microSD card slot is also here, plus an audio jack, stereo speakers, a 13 MP back camera, a 5 MP front camera. There’s also an infrared camera with Windows Hello facial recognition. There’s also 4G LTE, WiFi ac and Bluetooth 4.1. Just like the other Windows 10 S machines, this is the type of device that goes past 20 hours of usage time. This device continues in the same vein of the ASUS NovaGo and HP Envy x2.

The price is a bit high though, with expectations being around $800.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Full Review of The Lenovo Yoga 730 13.3 inch 2 in 1 Notebook

By Tim

Tonight we have a video review of the Lenovo Yoga 13.3 Inch, 2 in 1 notebook. This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech.

The device has an excellent display, and performs very well except for battery life which isn’t terrible, but could be a bit better.

As tested it has:

  • 8th Generation Intel® Core i5-8250U Processor
  • 13.3″ FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS multi-touch anti-glare
  • 8 GB DDR4 2400MHz
  • 128GB Solid State Drive PCIe
  • 4 Cell Li-Polymer 48Wh
  • Camera 720p HD
  • Lenovo Wireless AC (2 x 2

So those are very decent specs considering the price point of $799. This certainty isn’t a budget device but it is a boatload less expensive than an HP or Dell.

So make sure to visit Andrew’s channel and subscribe! You might also be be interested in watching my review of Andrew as a reviewer at this link.

Indian Tablet Market Dropped 10% in Q1 2018; Here’s a Set of Figures Regarding It

By Radu Iorga

The tablet market in India isn’t doing so fine right now, it seems judging by the latest figures provided by a study. It was done through CyberMedia Research’s (CMR) “Tablet PC Market” report, which shows Lenovo as the market leader again.

The Chinese company leads with a 23% market share, followed by Samsung, with 21% share and Datawind is third at 16%. The analysts talk about “a new breed of enterprise users” and refer to restaurant managers, traffic police, salesmen and the works, all fond of tablets in India. This new segment is supposed to spruce things up in the future, in spite of the decline.

The new segment will gain traction as time passes and new enterprise use cases will appear, drawing growth. Keep in mind that Lenovo had a 26.1% market share in the last quarter of 2017, so they also lost “points”. Lenovo did invest in the education area though, so they should reap the rewards soon. Samsung is also growing in the affordable area, while Datawind appeals to the nationalism in people, being a local brand.

The Indian tablet market saw a total shipment of 3.2 million units in the entire year 2017, a 11% drop from the 3.6 million in 2016. In Q2 2018 CMR expects that the B2B market will bring gains, on account of government initiatives in the education area.

Intel makes its first 10nm Cannon Lake chips official

By Peter Bright

Lenovo IdeaPad 330

Intel’s transition to building processors on a 10nm manufacturing process has been delayed repeatedly. Once upon a time the company said that it’d go into mass production at the end of 2015; with its most recent financial results the company pushed that back, again, to 2019. But the company has also said that, although the yields aren’t good enough for large-scale production, it has been shipping 10nm processors, codename Cannon Lake, to an unspecified customer.

That customer is Lenovo: the IdeaPad 330 has been listed by Chinese retailers, and it includes a mysterious processor, the Core i3-8121U. The name tells us the market positioning—it’s an i3, so it’s low-end—the power envelope—the “U” at the end means that it’s a 15W chip—and the branding—the number starts with an 8, so it’s going to be another “8th generation” chip, just like the Kaby Lake-R, Kaby Lake-G, and Coffee Lake processors. This means that “8th generation” is a rather vague label that describes several different processor variants, built on several different manufacturing processes (two 14nm variants and now 10nm).

We didn’t know much more about the chip until Intel published it on its Ark site. The Ark listing confirms that it is indeed a 15W Cannon Lake chip, built on a 10nm process. It has two cores, four threads, a base clock speed of 2.2GHz with turbo boost of 3.2GHz, and 4MB of level 3 cache.

Lenovo IdeaPad 330 is a New Intel Cannon Lake Laptop, Priced at $500

By Radu Iorga

Lenovo just debuted out of the blue a new laptop and it’s unique in the fact that it uses an Intel Cannon Lake 10 nm CPU. It’s called the Lenovo IdeaPad 330 and it’s already being listed in China at $500.

Interestingly, Intel is only expected to go all out with 10 nm processors in 2019, but some of its chips are already shipping right now. Lenovo took the lion’s share as shown by their latest laptop. The Lenovo IdeaPad 330 relies on 10 nm Cannon Lake architecture and Chinese retailer JD.com is already showing a listing for the product. It has a 15.6 inch display, AMD Radeon RX 540 graphics and an Intel Core i3-8121U processor.

The name Lenovo IdeaPad 330 is actually familiar, since a device under this moniker debuted in USA last week, but the US version ships with a 14 nm Kaby Lake CPU, either a Core i5 or Core i7. Don’t get too excited about the Cannon Lake, as this Core i3 seems like a lower end affair, particularly since it’s based on dual cores, not a quad core setup.

 

The resolution is also low on the Chinese laptop: 1366 x 768 pixels, 4 GB of RAM and 500 GB of HDD. Intel seems to be targetting the entry level area with this product. The JD.com listing offers upgrades of up to 8 GB of RAM, 1 TB of HDD and a 256 GB of SSD. The product weighs 2.1 kilograms and measures 22.7 mm in thickness. The keyboard has a full numeric pad and the laptop uses an Ethernet port, HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports and a Type-c one.

Expect to see more devices of the sort at Computex 2018.
