Budget-friendly Lenovo Miix 320 2-in-1 leaks ahead of possible MWC debut

We're rapidly approaching the start of Mobile World Congress 2017 (MWC) at the end of February, and a new leak has given us another look at what Lenovo might have in the cards for the budget-conscious at the event. As spotted by WinFuture.de, it looks like Lenovo is gearing up to launch the Miix 320, a follow-up to last year's affordable Miix 310 2-in-1. Overall, the Miix 320 looks nearly identical to its predecessor, and the story is the same with its specs as well.

Like the Miix 310, the 320 is detachable from its keyboard base, allowing you to swap it between laptop and tablet modes at will. Unlike the 310, the 320's speakers now face forward, appearing just below the screen when docked to he keyboard. That should make for a much better audio experience overall. That said, here's a look at the overall specs of the Miix 320:

All told, the Miix 320 is a minor update over the 310 thanks to its higher RAM cap and FHD screen option, but it's a tad disappointing to see Lenovo sticking with an Intel Atom chip for the processor. However, it's not a bad mix of specs when one considers the price of the 2-in-1 is expected to land around $220. In any case, we should hear much more about the Miix 320 at MWC later in February. In the meantime, you can learn more about the Miix 320 at a cached version of its official product page, which Lenovo has since pulled.
