Lenovo Yoga C630 – laptop running Windows 10 on SnapDragon 850
The Snapdragon 850 , the Qualcomm processor for connected computers, first landed on a Windows 10 notebook : the Lenovo Yoga C630 , which features 4G active connection and a long battery life, which can reach to 25 hours.
Snapdragon 850 is the Qualcomm chip for notebooks running on Windows 10
The Yoga C630 features a 13.3-inch IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels and some premium notebook features: 4 or 8 GB of LPDDR4X memory, 128 or 256 GB flash storage and aluminum design with 12.5 mm thickness and weighing 1.2 kg. Just like in other Yoga line models, the screen is touch sensitive and can be swiveled back.
It is an upgraded version of Lenovo Miix 630 which has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and promises 30% more performance, 20% more battery life and 20% faster speeds on 4G networks, with download rates up to 1.2 Gb / s (if your carrier supports).
Meanwhile, there are other important factors that makes Arm-powered Windows 10 systems more attractive in general: Microsoft has re-optimized its Edge browser for the WoS (Windows on Snapdragon) device, whereas Qualcomm has implemented a 64-bit SDK for developers looking to optimize their code for the WoS. Assuming that software makers are interested in the platform, they will release optimized versions of their programs in the coming months or quarters.
The Snapdragon 850 of the Yoga C630 has four Kryo 385 Gold cores of 2.95 GHz and another four Kryo 385 Silver of 1.8 GHz, accompanied by an Adreno 630 graphics chip. As for wireless connectivity, the convertible laptop naturally has an integrated Snapdragon X20 LTE modem that supports up to 1.2 Gbps speeds over appropriate networks as well as a 802.11ac Wi-Fi controller that also supports Bluetooth 5. In addition, the system has two USB Type-C ports, a fingerprint reader, a webcam, stereo speakers, a microphone, and an audio jack for headsets.
