Lenovo announcements from CES 2018
Staff Writer By: SchelleFire
Lenovo has been busy on the first day of the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
First, it announced the new Lenovo Smart Display with Google Assistant built-in. The press release described it as "a vibrant full HD touchscreen display and wrapped in a minimalist, modern design. It's the ideal home companion for busy families who need easy-to-use, time-saving technology."
With the Lenovo Smart Display, the Google Assistant can help you kickstart your morning and get the latest weather, traffic and meeting schedules or you can relax in the evening by video calling friends with Google Duo, watching YouTube™videos, enjoying your favorite tunes or managing your connected devices - all with just your voice and a quick glance at the display.
Powered by the newly announced Qualcomm Home Hub Platform based on the Qualcomm SDA 624 SoC which features integrated CPU, GPU and DSP as well as robust Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, the Lenovo Smart Display can also give you a hand at home after a long day's work.
It also features a clean, minimalist design that not only blends into your home but also adds a modern touch to it. Available in a soft Grey or natural Bamboo color, it matches most wooden, glass or granite tabletops. The display can be positioned horizontally or vertically to fit nearly any space. When not in use, the display doubles as a digital picture frame - showcasing an ambient screen of beautiful pictures from a personally selected album in Google Photos, or another background image of your choosing.
The 10-inch Lenovo Smart Display starts at $249.99 and the 8-inch model starts at $199.99, both expected to be available early this summer.
Then Lenovo announced a partnership with Qualcomm and Microsoft to bring mobile computing to consumers in a new way with Miix 630, Lenovo's latest Windows 10 S 2-in-1 detachable. It gives users the power and productivity of a laptop with the always-connected mobility of a smartphone. This isn't just Wi-Fi; it's integrated 4G LTE so users don't have to just rely on finding a Wi-Fi hotspot.
The Miix 630 2-in-1 detachable gives you five ways to intuitively interact with your device. Browse social media or watch videos on its 12.3-inch WUXGA+ touchscreen tablet, draw and edit with its Lenovo digital pen, or attach its full-sized keyboard to comfortably type those longer emails. The detachable keyboard can serve as a screen protector when you're on the go.

Finally, Lenovo debuted its new laptops in the ThinkPad X1 line. The company already previewed the ThnkPad line last week but the ThinkPad X1 family offers the thinnest, lightest, and most elegant products for professional users, providing uncompromised durability, seamless productivity, and a smarter PC experience.
ThinkPad X1 Carbon is the world's lightest 14-inch business laptop at 2.49 pounds
The new X1 Tablet, X1 Carbon, and X1 Yoga all boast ultra-premium designs packed with new state-of-the-art innovations, such as Dolby Vision HDR1, for unsurpassed performance, flexibility, and style.
