From our official CES site:
This CES® 2018, we’re teaming up with Qualcomm® and Microsoft® to bring mobile computing to consumers in a whole new way. Meet the new Miix 630, Lenovo’s latest Windows® 10 S 2-in-1 detachable that gives you the power and productivity of a laptop with the always on, always connected mobility of a smartphone.1 This isn’t just Wi-Fi. We’re talking about true anytime, anywhere mobility – with integrated 4G LTE1 so you don’t have to just rely on finding a Wi-Fi hotspot. Now you can have the instant-on, whisper-quiet operation of a smartphone in the form of a versatile 2-in-1 detachable with a full-sized keyboard and digital pen included.2
Here are the top five benefits the new Miix 630 can make in your productivity.
#1: Everyday PC Performance
We built the Miix 630 with Qualcomm’s innovative Snapdragon™ 835 Mobile PC Platform on the Windows 10 S operating system, so you can get work done on the go. Its full-sized backlit keyboard with precision touchpad gives you a comfortable and convenient typing experience to compile reports, design presentations or crunch numbers. We’ve also equipped it with a Lenovo digital pen with 1,024 levels of sensitivity so you can draw, sketch or annotate with Windows Ink™ for a natural pen-on-paper experience.
The Miix 630 runs on Windows 10 S, making it ideal for users who want consistent performance and streamlined security by running apps exclusively from the Microsoft Store. If you prefer the familiarity of Windows 10 Pro, the Miix 630 allows you to upgrade at no cost so you can choose the operating system that fits your needs.3
#2: Fast Smartphone Connectivity
We made the Miix 630 for today’s mobile generation. It delivers the kind of always-on, always connected1 freedom that smartphone users expect, and what laptop users want. Whether you’re working from a coffee shop or airport, you can now eliminate dependence on public Wi-Fi networks or the hassle of having to create a hotspot from your phone.
More than just anytime, anywhere connectivity, the Miix 630 offers lightning-fast connections1. Its integrated 4G LTE1 is designed for fast download speeds allowing you to check emails, share files, shop online or stream your favorite show without a hitch.
#3: Your Mobile Sidekick
Even with its keyboard, the Miix 630 is just 15.6mm (0.6 in) and featherlight weighing just 1.33kg (2.93 lbs). The Miix 630 offers incredibly long battery life of up to 20 hours of local video playback4 -- letting you leave the power cord at home. Better yet, the Miix 630 gives you constant connection even in standby mode – offering longer battery usage.5 Standby mode lets you stay connected with up-to-the-minute emails, notifications, message syncing and Skype calls in standby mode – all without draining your battery.
#4: Smooth, Quiet Operator
The Miix 630 is built with a fan-less design that packs more power with efficient heat processing into a smaller Snapdragon 835 mobile chipset. Its quiet operations make it ideal for working in quiet public spaces like the library, classroom or co-working space.
#5: Versatile Inside and Out
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.
The Miix 630 also offers amazing personalization. Windows 10 S enables Cortana®, your voice-enabled intelligent personal digital assistant, on the Miix 630. Get reminders, track flights, send short emails, play music and much more – all with just your voice. Pair its infrared camera with Windows Hello™ for quick and more secure log-in to your Miix 630. Having biometric facial recognition adds a layer of security and personalization for instantaneous log-in.
Experience next-gen mobile computing with the Miix 630 that combines PC performance; fast integrated 4G LTE1 for anytime, anywhere connectivity; and the incredible mobility and versatility of a 2-in-1 detachable.
The Miix 630 (keyboard and Lenovo digital pen included) starts at $799.99, expected to be available beginning in 2nd quarter of 2018 on www.lenovo.com2 and will be compatible with select local carriers (prices may vary per market).1

It's a nice machine, but the price is too high in my opinion. That is the starting price for the Surface Pro with CoreM and the Samsung Tabpro S also is in that region. We will have to wait for some benchmarks but I believe the CoreM will still be faster in most things and it has full 64bit compatibility.
The Miix only has the advantage in cellular and maybe battery life. It has the keyboard and pen, but the Samsun Tabpro has those included as well i believe.
So if the Miix is starting at $799 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage with a slower processor. I think you're setting yourself up for dissappointing sales.
Both the Surface and Samsung can be had with 128GB of storage and faster processors.
Then there is the connectivity/ports. If I buy the 64GB version I have to use an SDCard. Well there goes my cellular advantage, unless I can remove and insert as needed. Can the SDCard and SIM slot be separated?
You only have 1 Type C port! For $799 USD!
Generally speaking it's a good system, despite the short comings, but honestly; see what you can do with the price and you might have a better chance. Users can work around the short comings and performance, but that price....

Does the type C port have video out?
Maybe for $799 you can start the storage at 128GB.
@jack860 Sorry about the delayed response. I checked with my colleague.
The type-C port can support the video out.
Storage is UFS 2.1, which ranges from 64 – 256 GB and it seems the tablet can support up to 1 tb Micro SD as storage.
