Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Lenovo MiiX 630 2 in 1 Tablet PC on Snapdragon 835 Review

By Tim

This video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and is quite a thorough and honest review of this device.

This is a 2 in 1 tablet PC running Windows 10 on Arm and it does have some serious limitations. While the idea is great, it just isn’t quite perfected at this time. The price is also rather steep at $899. Their may be a niche market for these, but personally, the LTE connectivity, while handy doesn’t make up for the lack of WiFi.

There are some very nice features here, no doubt, but in the end this one is a little before Win 10 on Arm is anywhere near perfect.

So let us get right to that promised video where you can see all the specs and benchmarks and pros and cons from Andrew! Make sure to subscribe to his channel as he always does great honest reviews and pulls no punches.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: The Full Review of The Lenovo X1 Carbon Laptop (6th Gen)

By Tim

This video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the 14 inch Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th Gen , 14 inch laptop/notebook. This is a high end business class device that is perfect for large business and productivity.

The display is simply stellar, the available options are great and the price, while skyhigh will not scare off a major corporate IT department because the payback in productivity and the quality of the machine itself is excellent.

The battery life is good, the keyboard is beyond good, simply put, it is great! Certainly this is not a gaming laptop/notebook, but this is for getting work done!

I am not going to bore you with the specs, Andrew covers all of that in the video, so watch the video and subscribe to his channel to see great tech reviews that pull no punches!

Lenovo Tab4 Tablet Series to Only Receive Android 8.1 Oreo in November

By Radu Iorga

These days many people are wondering why prominent devices still don’t have Android 8.0 or 8.1 on board. We still have a lot of flagships stuck at Android Nougat, some just at Oreo 8.0 not 8.1 and of course tablets galore stuck at last gen OS. Lenovo’s Tab4 tablets may have been best sellers, but they’re in for a long wait till Oreo comes.

We’ve learned from official sources that the company is working on the updates, but we’ll have to wait till November to get them. We’re talking about the Lenovo Tab4 8, Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus and Lenovo Tab 4 10. Interestingly, the official list seems to be lacking the Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus. Updates will be rolled out in November 2018, complete with Play Protect, notification dots/badges and snooze for notifications.

Picture in Picture and battery enhancements will also be here. It’s very likely that the Tab4 models will stop at Android 8.1 Oreo and won’t receive Android P. I find it interesting that these Lenovo slates jump straight from Android 7.1 to Android 8.1, not to Android 8.0, but I’ve seen that approach before on phones. Such slates have been great hits in countries like India, where Lenovo has a strong foothold and also in Asian countries.

They’re the kind of tablet that gets bundled with a new TV set, a carrier contract or some sort of special offer, especially the smaller versions.

Lenovo Smart Display Now Up for Preorder, In Two Sizes; Here’s the Price

By Radu Iorga

Earlier this year Google unveiled the Smart Display platform, which also introduced a new type of product: a smart speaker with a display and Google Assistant on board. Lenovo, JBL, LG and Sony were quickly on board with hardware products and now one of them is finally up for preorder. It’s the Lenovo Smart Display, being made available in two sizes.

It focuses a lot on Google Assistant, providing excellent acoustics and challenging the Amazon Alexa-based Echo Show. While the LG WK9 Smart Display went on preorder months ago, then it disappeared from retailers, Lenovo’s gadget is here to stay. It can be preordered from the B&H Photo Video, but shipments happen at a crazy later date: September 3rd.

There are 8 inch and 10.1 inch versions of the device promised and the prices are more affordable than expected. The 8 incher is priced at $150 and the 10 incher at $230. The larger unit comes with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and the smaller with a 1280 x 800 pixel one. Both devices can hook up to smart home products and also receive Google Duo voice calls.

They’ve got dual array microphones, 10 watt full range drivers, for an always listening experience. Hopefully the September release date is wrong, since it sounds weird to get a product about 9 months after its announcement.

Lenovo Yoga Book 2 Pro May be in Development, According to Leak

By Radu Iorga

The Lenovo Yoga Book was probably the most “ahead of its time” tablets I’ve played with and it’s no wonder Lenovo is working on a successor. Actually, that successor should have been out by now, so the OG may have just been an experiment. However, a certain “Lenovo Yoga Book 2 Pro” has appeared online, getting certified by Bluetooth SIG apparently.

Launched back in 2016, the first Lenovo Yoga Book felt and looked like a laptop, a convertible rather, but had the unique attribute of offering a touch keyboard. It was also very slim and light, extremely elegant and its hinge mechanism was a joy to look at. It also relied on the “Create Pad” concept, basically offering a Wacom-style drawing and input area.

It was available with your choice of Windows or Android and the prices weren’t bad, starting at $499. In 2017 we saw a cheaper version of it and now it’s time for a Pro model, it seems. Sadly, the Yoga Book was like a smart movie, loved by critics (reviews), but not loved by the public. The new listing on the Bluetooth SIG website refers to a Lenovo Precision Pen, that’s meant to work with a yet unannounced device, dubbed Lenovo YogaBook 2 Pro.

It’s hard to envision upgrades here, aside from the obvious RAM, storage and CPU. It’s clear that we can’t get an Intel Atom anymore and maybe there’s room for a Snapdragon this time around. Seeing how even Apple is rumored to be working on a touch keyboard laptop and ASUS too, there’s still a market for a new Yoga Book.
