CES 2018: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet 2018 is a Device for the Creatives

By James A.

Lenovo is one of the companies that keep churning out products, especially at tech shows, like MWC, IFA or CES. That’s probably why they’ve been filling our news feed with novelty over the past hours, with a variety of device formats taken on. Those include the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet 2018, a device for the creative types.

Unveiled at CES 2018, this tablet is supposed to be ideal for graphic designers. Compared to its predecessor it brings forth a new kickstand design, that involves a hinge starting in the middle of the back side. It feels a bit like Microsoft Surface and serves for extra flexibility. The detachable 2 in 1 computer hooks up to a Lenovo removable keyboard, which provides a pretty nifty key travel distance.

The screen is the one you’ll be using the most though, a 13 inch IPS touch display with a great 3000 x 2000 pixel resolution. This is a bump up from the predecessor’s 2160 x 1440 pixels. The panel is compatible with the Lenovo Pen Pro, the digitizer pen that supports 4096 levels of pressure and also tile to shade features. The device has two USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 ports on the left side, but it lacks full size USB connectivity for some reason, at least from the preliminary specs.

This year’s model offers an Intel Core i7 7th gen CPU, plus up to 16 GB of RAM, up to 1 TB of SSD (OPAL2 PCIe-NVMe M.2). It all weighs 890 grams and measures 8.9 mm. The price is $1599 and availability happens this month.

CES 2018: Lenovo Miix 630 is a 2 in 1 Tablet With Snapdragon CPU

By Radu Iorga

Late in 2017 Qualcomm and Microsoft hooked up and came up with the Windows on ARM initiative, that spawned a few interesting 2 in 1 devices. The first came from HP and ASUS and now Lenovo joins the party with the Lenovo Miix 630. It was announced at CES 2018 and obviously we detail this Snapdragon newcomer below.

Things like “Always On” and “huge battery life” will be thrown around a lot for sure related to such devices. The Miix 630 is a 2 in 1 detachable laptop with Windows 10 S in the mix and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. This is a smaller 12.3 inch laptop with dimensions similar to the HP Envy 2x. It weighs 1.33 kilograms and packs a 12.3 inch touch display with a 1920 x 1280 pixel resolution and Corning Glass.

The promise here is that we’ll achieve 20 hours of video playback, on a 48 Wh battery capacity. The package of the device includes a Lenovo digital pen, that lets users draw or take notes directly on the screen in tablet mode. If you want more detailed specs, well aside from the Snapdragon 835 CPU, there’s 4 or 8 GB of RAM and 64, 128 or 256 GB of storage.

 

On the connectivity front, we’ve got an USB Type-C port, an SD card reader, nano SIM card slot (4G LTE offered). There’s a 13 megapixel main camera here with AF and IF, plus a 5 MP shooter. The keyboard is backlit and Bluetooth 4.1 and WiFi 2X2 are also here. This detachable starts at $799.99 and it should sell from Q2 2018.

CES 2018: Lenovo Smart Display With Google Assistant is Both Tablet and Voice Assistant

By Radu Iorga

Google Assistant machines are a big deal at this year’s CES and those include smart speakers and even some devices that could easily be called tablet-speaker hybrids. One such model blurring the lines is the Lenovo Smart Display, just unveiled at CES 2018.

It’s a 8 or 10 inch machine, which has a lovely wooden back side. There’s a 10 watt speaker integrated, which is one of the main features of the machine and this product also lets you place calls, watch YouTube or perform other productivity tasks. You can cook using recipes shown on the screen and the price is $199 for the 8 inch version or $249 for the 10 inch model.

Inside there’s Qualcomm SDA 624 CPU, which is supposed to be the equal of a high end smartphone CPU from a few years ago. The chip is part of the Qualcomm Home Hub platform and the Lenovo Smart Display also brings a minimalistic design, with a black and white front and bamboo back. It’ll be available early this summer. The smaller version has a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, while the bigger one has a 1920 x 1200 pixel res.

They share the same specs otherwise and also have built in 720p cameras. They also have digital picture frame functionality, WiFi and Bluetooth of course. It’s interesting to me that you can use the device both vertically and horizontally.
