Lenovo To Release Its Answer to the Surface Pro 5: Miix 720

Surface Pro 5 is slated to arrive in 2017, but before that, Lenovo wants to get ahead by announcing its own competitor to the upcoming 2-in-1. Called the Miix 720, the latest product from Lenovo is running Windows 10, and is running Intel's updated Kaby Lake processors, which will provide a slight performance improvement over the company's 6th generation Skylake processors.

According to the source, Lenovo Mixx 720 features a 12-inch screen with a massive resolution of 2880 x 1920. There is also said to be 16GB of RAM for tackling multiple applications at the same time, so Lenovo intends to release this in regions where consumers actually require expensive and portable gadgets to perform their daily work and entertainment doses.

Due to the sheer lack of thickness the 2-in-1 features, Lenovo Miix 720 will obviously not feature a dedicated GPU like the Surface Book i7. However, Intel's embedded GPU has shown significant performance over the previous iterations, so we'll be looking at some performance gain from this.

Unfortunately, this still does not mean that you'll be able to replace this as a portable gaming machine, because the lack of processing and GPU power will keep you limited, just like it kept the Surface Pro 4 limited.

Other information also states that there is going to be a configuration where you can opt to upgrade up to 1TB of SSD storage, along with a 41-Wh battery that will allow the user to keep the device powered on for up to 8 hours.

The pricing details of the Lenovo Mixx 720 have not been detailed, nor there is sufficient information when it is going to be officially announced. However, we have a feeling that the 2-in-1 will be officially available well before the Surface Pro 5 announcement, which is due in 2017.
