This year, Chinese manufacturer Lenovo has released several interesting Surface-like Windows 10 PCs with its portfolio of Miix hybrid devices. Indeed, the Miix 700 made a pretty good impression at CES 2016 while the Miix 510 was one of the last detachable PCs from the company to be unveiled at IFA 2016 three months ago ().
But according to a new report from WinFuture.de (via Windows Central) the company may be working on another hybrid device called the Miix 520 which would once again feature a detachable keyboard and a built-in kickstand.
Here is one of the pictures shared by WinFuture.de today:
According to the report, the 2-in-1 device is still in development and may feature Intel’s 7th generation Kaby Lake processors, a fingerprint sensor, two USB-C Ports as well as a dual camera system on the back which could be leveraged by augmented reality applications.
Here are the other rumored specs of the device:
- 12.3-inches screen with a 1920×1200 resolution
- Up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM
- Up to 1TB of storage (expandable via MicroSD)
- A 5MP camera on the front and a combo of 8 and 2MP sensors on the back
- Two USB-C ports and one USB 3.0 Type A port
- Dual speakers with Dolby Advanced Audio certification
- Up to 10 hours of battery life
As Microsoft has yet to release a successor to its Surface Pro 4, there is currently plenty of room for third-party manufacturers to iterate on the increasingly popular 2-in-1 form factor. Let us know in the comments if the rumored specs of the Lenovo Miix 520 make you want to know more about this device.Further reading: 2-in-1, Kaby Lake, Lenovo, Miix, Surface, Windows 10
