Lenovo says the Miix 620 2-in-1 will be going on sale in March or April in select markets. The backlit keyboard cover with a touchpad is included in the package together with a pressure-sensitive stylus. No word yet on whether or not the device will be making its way to India anytime soon. Here at CES 2018, we get to see its first new generation notebook, the Lenovo Miix 630. The detachable keyboard can serve as a screen protector when you're on the go.

The processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 - a processor commonly found in high-end Android smartphones like the Pixel 2, LG V30 and HTC U11. According to Lenovo, you can also expect up to 20 hours of battery life from this device which, while sounding outrageous, could be true if you play your cards right day-to-day. Lastly, the left flank features another speaker grille, an SD card slot, a nano SIM slot, and what looks like a 3.5mm headset jack.

Graphics and lightweight gaming are supported by the integrated Adreno 540 GPU. Along with the LTE connectivity, the machine uses 2×2 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1.

The new Lenovo Miix 630 also boasts a 13-megapixel rear camera as well as a 5-megapixel front-facing camera that also supports Windows Hello. However, when using the built-in LTE modem and performing regular tasks, that number is expected to come down significantly.

Like the Asus NovaGo and HP Envy x2, the Miix 630 runs Windows 10 S - Microsoft's limited education-focused OS variant that only allows users to run Windows apps - but can be updated free of charge to Windows 10 Pro, where it will run full desktop apps using Microsoft's emulator. However, the Miix 630 should still be able to provide better battery life compared to most ultra-portable 2-in-1 notebooks out there.

On the right flank sits the volume rocker toward the top, a speaker grille, and USB Type-C port.
