Microsoft is preparing to expand its range of Surface laptops. The novelty is now being created under the codename Tenjin and will represent the company’s most budgetary PC.

This is an all-plastic laptop with an 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, an Intel Celeron N4120 processor and up to 8 GB of RAM.

Such simple characteristics are explained as simply as possible: this is a laptop focused on the educational segment, where Chromebooks now rule the ball. It is with them that the new product from Microsoft will have to compete. Such mobile PCs have been on the market for a long time, just earlier Microsoft itself did not climb into this segment.

Of the rest, it reports a full-sized keyboard, one USB port, one USB-C, and using Windows 11 SE. Presumably, the novelty can be named Surface Laptop SE.

What will a Poco laptop be like if it’s really planned? You can probably forget about a stand-alone model: most of the current Poco smartphones are renamed Xiaomi and Redmi devices. The scenario in which the Redmi G 2021 will debut under the Poco brand is more likely. In the configuration of this model, recall, a 16.1-inch screen with a 144 Hz frame rate, Intel Core 11 and Ryzen 5000 processors, 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD – and battery G16B01W.

In the Geekbench database, an unknown Lenovo QRD device was lit up, based on the as-yet-unrevealed Qualcomm platform.

The interest in this case is that we are talking about a laptop, and the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 is installed as a platform.

Recall that the Snapdragon 8cx line debuted in 2018, then in 2020 the second generation of this SoC came out, which differed little from the first. And now, apparently, a third generation looms on the horizon.

The configuration of the single-chip system is still unknown, but the software says about eight cores and a frequency of 2.69 GHz. The result for Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 is as follows: 1010 points and 5335 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively.
