Lenovo’s updated Surface Pro rival just leaked

Microsoft may have just unveiled a couple of new Surface-branded devices, but Lenovo is still pumping out its own versions of the popular Surface Pro tablets.

After the company recently launched its latest competitor to the Surface Pro in the form of the Miix 510, the next version has leaked online.

As WinFuture reports, the IdeaPad Miix 720 comes with some upgraded internals, including 16GB RAM and up to a 1TB SSD.

It also seems to be packing a 2,880 x 1,920 display, which is a higher resolution than the Surface Pro’s 2,736 x 1,824, and will include Intel’s latest Kaby Lake i3, i5, and i7 processors.

And if that wasn’t enough of an upgrade, the 720 will come featuring a USB Type-C port which will also allow users to charge the tablet.

Lenovo has provided a couple of legacy USB ports for those not yet ready to go full USB-C, along with its watchband hinge on the kickstand.

WinFuture also says the new Miix comes with an iris scanner, which will let users unlock the device with their eyes, much like the now defunct Galaxy Note 7.

Other features include Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and a stylus with up to 2,048 pressure levels.

Just when the new tablet will launch isn’t clear at this point, but it can’t be too far away, what with all the specs being revealed already. Stay tuned for more.
