An as of yet unannounced Lenovo Miix 720 2-in-1 tablet have been leaking with model numbers indicating a tight closeness to the Lenovo Miix 710 that should be launched pretty soon.
But where the Lenovo Miix 710 have leaked with Intel Core m3-7Y30, Intel Core i5-7Y54, and Intel Core i7-7Y75 processor choices, the Lenovo Miix 720 have leaked with Intel Core i3-7100U and Intel Core i7-7500U “Kaby Lake” processors I noticed, after having researched Indian import filings. Computer journalist Roland Quandt says that there will be an Intel Core i5-7200U version of the Lenovo Miix 720 too.
They also seem to follow the same proportional storage increase with each processor, from 128GB, to 256GB, to 512GB of storage, while the import price suggests a start of $900. But this is just a precursory figure.
The Lenovo Miix 720 was certified this week in Indonesia after it had been exported from its manufacturing plant in China, one month after the Lenovo Miix 710.
These two 12-inch Windows 10 tablets appear to be of the same type so far, only that they carry different processors. We will find out soon what else is different about them.
The predecessor Lenovo Miix 700 is currently on sale with a whopping $300 off, meaning that people can now pick up an Intel Core m tablet for $450, that also has 2160 x 1440 resolution and keyboard included. That’s how cheap tablets have become this year.
