Lenovo unveiled a series of tablets at the Mobile World Congress, including a widely awaited 13-inch Yoga Tab. The device has an integrated stainless steel stand, which will make positioning easier for hands-free use. Alternatively, you can use the stand as an hanger. Just make sure it is resting on a sturdy hook.
According to Lenovo, the Yoga Tab 13 can transmit video for up to 12 hours on a single charge. It has a low-temperature 2K PolySilicon display, with 400 nits of brightness, 100 percent sRGB color gamut, a 60Hz refresh rate and Dolby Vision HDR support. With a micro-HDMI to USB cable included, you can use Yoga Tab 13 as a portable secondary screen for a laptop or PC.
There is an 8MP front camera with face unlock support. The Yoga Tab 13 has four JBL speakers, two of which are integrated into the soundbar’s cylinder. The tablet has Dolby Atmos support and, thanks to a lower audio camera, up to 450Hz bass performance. An adapter for USB-C to 3.5mm connection is also included.
The tablet is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Mobile Platform and has 8 GB of LPDDR5 memory, WiFi 6 support and a USB-C charging port. Dual microphone can take your commands from Google Assistant, and there’s support for the Lenovo Precision Pen 2.2. The device weighs 1.83 lbs (830g). The Yoga Tab 13 (known as the Yoga Pad Pro in China) starts at $ 680 and should go on sale in July.
In addition, Lenovo has announced the new Yoga Tab 11. It also has a horsepower that also serves as a hanger, with an 11-inch IPS Touch Display Driver Integration (TDDI) display and Dolby Vision and Atmos support. The 1.44 lbs (655g) tablet runs on an octa-core MediaTek Helio G90T processor and has a UFS-based memory chip with up to 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 256 GB of memory.
The Yoga Tab 11 has four speakers and dual mics, a video playback time of up to 15 hours, USB-C fast charging support and a face unlock feature. There is an 8MP camera on the front and another on the back. You can take an LTE variant of the tablet as well. The Yoga Tab 11 starts at $ 320 and should arrive in August.
Also new is the Lenovo Tab P11 Plus, which boasts an 11-inch (2000 x 1200) display, four speakers with Dolby Atmos support, an octa-core MediaTek G90T chipset and up to 6 GB of memory. It weighs 1.1 lbs (490g) and has a microSD slot for expandable storage. It has LTE support, a USB-C port and 8MP front cameras and 13MP rear cameras. Lenovo says it gets up to 12 hours of video playback with a single charge. The Tab P11 Plus starts at $ 260 and should be able to get its hands on it in August.
Elsewhere, Lenovo has refreshed the Tab M7 and Tab M8. Both have a children’s mode integrated with Google Kids Space and TDDI display. The processors have been updated and, on the M8 Tab, you’ll get up to 15 hours of video playback, according to Lenovo. The M7 Tab should arrive in July, starting at $ 110. The third-generation M8 Tab will hit select markets later this year, but it won’t come in the US.
