The One Mix 3 Yoga that went up for pre-order this week is an 8.4 inch mini laptop with an Intel Core m3-8100Y processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

But next week the company behind that tiny laptop plans to launch a higher-priced model called the One Mix 3S.

The basic design is the same, but it’ll pack a Core i5-8200Y processor, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. And it’ll come in black rather than the silver/grey color of the One Mix 3 Yoga.

Update: It’s up for pre-order for $900 from GeekBuying.

Like its more affordable sibling, the One Mix 3S measures 8″ x 5.1″ x 0.6″ and weighs about 1.5 pounds. It has an 8.4 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel touchscreen display, a 360-degree hinge that lets you fold the screen back and hold the computer in tablet mode, and support for an optional digital pen (sold separately) with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.

The tiny computer has a USB Type-C port, a USB 3.0 Type-A port, a micro HDMI port, and a microSD card slot and it features an 8,600 mAh battery.

In addition to the 512GB PCIe NVMe solid state drive that comes with the system, there’s a second M.2 slot that you can use for additional storage.

While One Netbook had initially claimed you could add our own 4G LTE modem by placing it in the M.2 slot, the company seems to have backed away from that claim in recent marketing materials.

One Netbook hasn’t announced the price for the One Mix 3S yet, but we should find out more when the mini laptop officially launches on May 21st.

For now, I think it’s safe to assume that it’ll cost considerably more than the One Mix 3 Yoga, which is currently selling for $750 at GeekBuying (when you use the coupon code BELWFNVY).

  1. ok, love the 16gb, but why the i5? the one mix 2s Platinum is given an i7.
    I’m scratching my head over that decision.

  2. I wonder how much of a battery life difference will there be between this and the lower end model.

  3. You only get a very miniscule performance bump over the m3 with these y series i5 and i7s, yet you need to pay a massive premium for them.

    1. I disagree. The only device on the market, that im are of, offering both these CPUs is the Pixel Slate.

      There is a 20% increase in performance between the 2 CPUs (Passmark score), and there is a 20% difference in price between them with the Pixel’s pricing. Seems pretty spot on value to me.

    2. I guess there’s also what is the real world perceived performance improvement for that price bump. I’m guessing most of the target audience for this device won’t notice any difference: effectively more money for nothing.

      For those who would be running tasks that would notice a difference would probably go from seeing really slow performance to it’s a bit faster but still slow and I probably should just wait to get to my workstation to run it performance.

      1. Yeah, the real world performance difference is likely negligible. I was hoping for the LTE support to differentiate this from the other netbooks. I’m leaning towards Chuwi Minibook now since it’s physically smaller. Too bad they also dropped marketing LTE support once they realized an M.2 slot isn’t enough to support LTE modems.

  4. Too bad they dropped LTE support. This was the most interesting to me with that. While there’s more competition in this space, the offerings seem to only have small variations. Maybe the one with the lowest price will win.

    1. While One Netbook had initially claimed you could add our own 4G LTE modem by placing it in the M.2 slot, the company seems to have backed away from that claim in recent marketing materials.

      Yeah, this device isn’t that interesting to me anymore due to them dropping LTE support. I guess I’ll just get whatever is cheapest and/or available on Amazon Prime.

    2. Too bad both Chuwi and One Netbook decided to not offer LTE upgradibility anymore. I guess I’ll pull the trigger on the Surface Go LTE now. I waited when I saw these 2 devices.

      1. Same. I delayed my Surface Go LTE purchase since Chuwi and One Netbook advertised LTE support. Since they dropped it, I just pulled the trigger on the Go. It’s not as small but I want that built-in LTE. At least it doesn’t have a fan I have to worry about.

      2. I was eyeing these to devices to replace my Surface Go with built-in LTE. It would have been nice to get a smaller device. I guess I’ll keep using my Go until something else comes out.

    3. Too bad about them canceling LTE support. It probably never supported it and marketing made a mistake.

      It seems even cheap Android tablets have optional LTE. I wonder why it’s so hard for PCs.

      1. I’m guessing the marketing folks made some wrong assumptions. At least they’re not as bad as Lenovo’s team and stole someone else’s content.

        I’m also sporting a Surface Go LTE. It’s the smallest Windows 10 device I’ve seen with built-in LTE so far. Although, I’m a UMPC fan and would like to get an even smaller device. I still have my Viliv N5 with 3G HSPA but its old Atom SoC is too slow to use now.

        1. I had the Viliv N5 with 3G as well. It was great. I was late to the UMPC game at the time. I would have gotten the OQO slider but that company already shut down.

          I’d still be using the N5 but I dropped it one too many times. The built-in LTE with my unlimited data plan was great. Despite how far mobile OS’s have come, I still prefer to use a desktop OS while on the go.

  5. Okay, now there is a good competition between brands offering these new UMPCs, so I hope the next step will be to make them cheaper!

    1. Until these products make it to mass manufacturing, the price won’t drop too much. I imagine economies of scale are at play here.

      1. If more companies are making these modern UMPC, then I guess they feel there’s a large enough market for them. So maybe prices will go down now. Or these companies are reading the market wrong and the UMPC will die again (I hope not).
