According to a report by NotebookItalia, Lenovo has a new convertible Ideapad under development which is being called Ideapad D330. The report is also confirmed by Lenovo’s EU Declaration of Conformity for the tablet.
The specs of the 2-in-1 laptop include a light-and-thin computer that has a full HD display with a low-powered Intel Gemini Lake processor, particularly designed to be used in tablet, notebook, stand modes or tent.
As suggested by its product code, the laptop is designed to feature a display of 10.1 inches with 1920×1200 pixels with thicker frames. It will have a 1.1GHz Intel Pentium Silver N5000 processor (Gemini Lake) along with ROM/RAM in multiple cuts. The resulting tablet frame is thinner and not squat and houses an audio jack of 3.5 mm on one side. On the opposite side are the power/volume buttons, USB type-C and a power connector. These can be used both for data transferring functions and video signal acquisition. Slots for SIM card, Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi 802.11ac (2×2) are also available in LTE models.
This new Ideapad D330 seems to have inherited the technical specifications and design from the Miix 320. The reason for this is somewhat shady. Perhaps the company is planning to introduce a new design to the Mix series or only the medium to high-end models are intended to be included in the Mix family. It is definitely hard to comment on this at this point. The similarities are not only present in terms of design but also for other specs such as the keyboard dock which has two additional USB ports with a small twist to the docking system and hinge design. In this new model, two cameras are observed (resolutions are not known) and an efficient battery that is expected to be autonomous enough to long a whole working day.
It is unsure for now when this convertible laptop will be revealed, but it is expected that the first preview could be seen in the start of September in Berlin during IFA 2018.
