Lenovo has just announced its 2-in-1 tablet with an additional keyboard at the IFA 2016 event which is being held these days in Berlin. The tablet is named Lenovo Miix 510 and as it turns out, it may become a serious competitor to the Surface Pro 4.
The Lenovo Miix 510 is a successor to the Miix 700 and it’s designed to offer the easy use of a tablet combined with the productivity that is associated with a laptop or notebook.
The tablet is scheduled for launch this October and it’s already priced at $600. It sports a 12.2 inch touch screen display that renders images at 1920 x 1200 px in resolution It’s powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and it features 8 GB of RAM complete with 1 TB of storage. In terms of camera, it comes with a 5MP one which is unimpressive when compared to the 8MP rear one found on the Surface Pro 4. The keyboard is not the only accessory that comes with the tablet; there is also a Stylus pen.
Overall, it’s very similar to the Surface Pro 4. However, Miix 510 offers something that the Pro 4 doesn’t offer, which is LTE data connectivity.
Another perk of the upcoming Lenovo tablet is the fact that buyers are not charged extra for accessories such as the stylus pen and the keyboard. The Surface Pro 4 is far more expensive at $899 and buyers have to pay an extra $129 for the accessories. This means that you could save a lot of money and get the same experience.
However, the Lenovo 2-in-1 tablet only lasts about 7 hours on a single charge as opposed to the Surface Pro 4 that lasts 9 hours. Another noticeable difference between the two devices is that there is a fingerprint reader on the Surface Pro 4 that the Miix 510 doesn’t have.
