Rumor has it that Lenovo is working on a successor to its Miix 510 tablet. This Microsoft Surface competitor will reportedly be called Miix 520 which makes sense as it’s an evolutionary update. Some details about the Lenovo Miix 520 have been leaked online aside from unofficial renders that just might offer us a glimpse of this tablet’s design.
The unofficial renders suggest that the new tablet is going to have a design that’s quite similar to that of its predecessor. The familiar watchband hinge that Lenovo has popularized may very well retain its place.
The tablet is said to feature a 12.3 inch 1,920×1,200 pixel resolution display. It’s claimed that the Miix 520 is going to be accompanied by an optional keyboard cover as well as an active stylus. At least three models of the new tablet are expected to feature Intel Kaby Lake processors.
Additional specifications may include up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 1TB of onboard storage. A microSD card slot may allow users to expand storage externally. The Miix 520 might include a USB 3.0 port alongside two USB 2.0 ports. An 8 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front camera and a fingerprint sensor between the volume keys is expected to be onboard as well.
Lenovo Miix 520 is said to offer 10 hours of battery life on a single charge and it may even tout Dolby Advanced Audio certification. None of this has been officially confirmed by Lenovo yet so take it with a grain of salt. Pricing and availability information has not been revealed at this point in time.
