Lenovo's refreshed Surface Pro competitor leaks

Share this story

The IdeaPad Miix 720, the latest model in Lenovo’s Miix line of Surface Pro lookalikes, has leaked a little early. 

While Lenovo did just recently release the Miix 510, an upgraded successor to last year’s Miix 700, WinFuture reports that the upcoming Miix 720 will offer further improved specs. Specifically, the 12-inch is getting a higher-resolution 2880 x 1920 screen, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to a 1TB SSD. And even more importantly, Lenovo is also updating the processor options to Intel’s latest seventh-generation i3, i5, and i7 Kaby Lake models.

WinFuture also claims that the Miix 720 will update its port selection, joining the Miix 510 in adding a USB-C port (that’s also used to charge the device). Unlike other recent laptops, like Apple’s MacBook and new MacBook Pro models, the Miix 720 will also offer two legacy USB ports. And similar to the earlier Miix and Yoga models, Lenovo is keeping its signature watchband hinge on the kickstand.

We still don’t know when the Miix 720 will release, or how much it will cost, but with this much information already leaked out, it probably won’t be too long before an official unveiling from Lenovo.
