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.

  2. It’s June 30th & we’re being informed that it’s available in June? Something is odd… Unless, like samsung, Lenovo is telling us to wait a year & it’ll be out

    1. Yeah, I thought about that as I wrote this post, not knowing exactly when it would go live. I chose for the sake of brevity to not add 2021 to that section. Sorry for any confusion it may have caused.
