Today, Lenovo launched the second ARM-based Windows10 laptop for the Yoga series. The new product is called the Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS (Windows on Snapdragon). It is equipped with the Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 850 processing. It is also the world’s first notebook with this processor. This chip has been designed by Qualcomm specifically for Windows 10 PCs.
Lenovo’s previous ARM notebook is a two-in-one detachable tablet/laptop hybrid. But the new Yoga C630 is more like a traditional laptop. However, it can also be flipped to a tablet mode. The Lenovo Yoga C630 is equipped with a 13.3-inch FHD IPS touchscreen, which also supports an optional stylus.
According to Qualcomm’s official data, the Snapdragon 850 clock speed is 2.96GHz, which is 30% better than the Snapdragon 835 (the main chip of the first generation Win10 on ARM products). At the same time, it provides a 20% longer battery life and improved the 4G network download speed by 20%. Specifically, the Lenovo Yoga C630’s 61Wh battery has up to 25 hours of battery life, which is a big step forward when comparing to the previous generation Miix 630. Apart from this, there are is a 4/8GB of RAM, 128/256GB of UFS 2.1 native storage, a headphone jack, and two USB Type-C ports. Both support power supply and one of the cam also transmit DP video stream.
As you guess, one of the selling points of the Lenovo Yoga C630 is the integrated 1.2Gbps Gigabit LTE baseband. There is a single SIM card slot supporting eSIM. But there are other aspects we should pay attention to as well. Say, this is a 360-degree flip laptop that can be used in various modes. The laptop also comes with two speakers arranged on both sides. The whole machine is 12.5mm thick and weighs 1.2kg. Of course, it supports Windows Hello infrared authentication and fingerprint recognition.
The Lenovo Yoga C630 will be available for purchase in November for $849.99.
