Convertible 2-in-1 laptop/tablets are not exactly popular compared to conventional tablet or laptop, but several hardware manufacturers are jumping into this particular market. A recent leak have inadvertently unveiled the upcoming Lenovo Miix 320 2-in-1. It is believed that this will be the successor of the Miix 310 which was released about a year ago.
Lenovo has yet to confirm the Miix 320, although there are speculations claiming that the Chinese tech company will officially debut the device at the 2017 Mobile World Congress later this month.
Just like its predecessor, the Miix 320 packs all the conventional features of a tablet and mash it up with a detachable keyboard that essentially turns it into a laptop. Unlike the Miix 310, the new model has front-facing speakers, according to Phone Arena. On the other hand, unlike the Surface Pro 4, the Miix 320 does not come with a kickstand.
Based on the leaked specs, it is clear that Lenovo is targeting the entry-level market with the Miix 320. The device packs a 10.1-inch IPS LCD with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Powering the device is a modest Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor, according to Neowin. The device can be configured with 2GB or 4GB of memory, and 64GB or 128GB of storage space. On the camera aspect, the Miix 320 has a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
Standard features included are Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, microHDMI port, USB Type-C, USB 2.0 and 3.5mm audio port. One model of the Miix 320 can be configured to support 4G LTE network. The Miix 320 is rated to have a battery life of up to 10 hours.
Based on the listed specs, the Lenovo Miix 320 is expected to have a price tag of around $229 for the model with the most basic configuration. The device is expected to debut at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month.
