Lenovo Miix 2 8-Inch Tablet Now Has A Full HD Display

Windows tablet hardware, much like the Windows PC hardware, has been stuck with subpar resolutions for years now. Resolutions like 720p may be serviceable in screen sizes 8-inches and under.

But full HD displays are the future, and many users demand this standard in their devices.

Luckily, Lenovo has listened, and the company has reportedly refreshed the Miix 2 8.0 tablet, upgrading it from the bland 1280 by 720 pixels display, which translated to a pixel density of 189ppi for the 8-inch IPS LCD screen.

And in case you are wondering, this is the same slate that cannot be purchased in the United States anymore, as the company clarified recently.

Instead, Lenovo plans to refresh its small tablet with a new model that offers full HD display delivering a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. Underneath will sit the same Intel Bay Trail Z3740 SoC, offering a quad-core CPU running at speeds of 1.3GHz and 1.86GHz with Turbo Boost.

The 2GB of RAM is backed up by 64GB of internal storage exclusively, up from the 32GB of the previous model, along with standard connectivity options like WiFi, Bluetooth.

Windows 8.1 and Microsoft Office, too, come standard.

This new slate is currently available in Europe for prices in the range of €350, though a US launch should see it retailing for a lower amount. Hopefully.

    A wonder if Microsoft will ever do a Courier style tablet again

      I think it’s definitely worth a consideration. HD on an 8 inch tablet could be very nice for the right price, which it sounds like it will be a reasonable price. Good luck on the decision!
