NEWS – When one device just isn’t enough, why not carry around a portable monitor that is also an Android tablet? That’s what Lenovo has with the new Yoga Tab 13, an Android tablet with a 13″ 2K screen plus an HDMI input for connection to a computer or other HDMI capable source. Lenovo bills the Yoga Tab 13 the “Ultimate at-home entertainment tablet.”
Specs include a 2K (2160 x 1350) 13″ HDR screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 octa-core processor, and a Qualcomm Adreno 650 graphics card. The 2K display is Dolby Vision capable and the JBL quad speaker system supports Dolby Atmos.
One clever feature of the Yoga Tab 13 is a kickstand that doubles as a hook for hanging the tablet/screen for convenient viewing. In addition to acting as a kickstand and a hook for hanging, it also works as a prop for laying the tablet down on a table at multiple angles, for typing with the onscreen keyboard or drawing with the optional Lenovo Precision Pen 2 for example.
Time of Flight technology built into the camera system allows for immersive AR experiences, for planning the layout of furniture in a room or playing games that include AR capabilities.
Lenovo’s Yoga Tab 13 will be available in June and an 11″ version is expected in July. Check lenovo.com for details.
