We’re here at IFA 2016, and Lenovo has just taken the wraps off of a slew of new products, including a new ultrabook, new tablets, and 2-in-1 devices running Android or Windows 10. With all that in mind, let’s take a look at the Lenovo Yoga Book, the Yoga 910, Miix 410, and Yoga Tab 3 Plus!
Lenovo Yoga Book
The Lenovo Yoga Book falls somewhere in between a laptop and a tablet, offering a relatively compact, thin, and lightweight design, but with a keyboard attached. Keeping everything together is what Lenovo likes to call the watchband hinge, which allows for the screen to be rotated fully, allowing you to place it in different positions, or use it as a tablet. With a thickness of just 9.6 mm and weight of 690 grams, using it in the tablet mode isn’t going to be uncomfortable either.
The Yoga Book comes with a 10.1-inch Full HD display, an Intel Atom x5 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of on-board storage that is further expandable via microSD card for an additional 128 GB. Keeping everything running is a large 8,500 mAh battery, and the device also comes with a 8 MP rear camera and 2 MP front-facing shooter.
What is most interesting about the Yoga Book is the Halo keyboard, which is a capacitive keyboard of sorts, that lights up only when you need it. Typing on this keyboard will certainly take some getting used to, but it definitely looks and feels like something out of the future.
Another great feature of this keyboard section is that you can place a notebook on it, and when writing in it, the device will automatically recognize and digitalize everything you’ve drawn or written down. Of course, if you aren’t looking to have a physical copy of your notes, you can write or draw directly on the “create pad” as well, with the pen that is included in the box.
On the software side of things, both Windows and Android versions of the Yoga Book will be available, running either Windows 10 or Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and will be available in Gold and Gunmetal variants.
Lenovo Yoga 910
The Lenovo Yoga 910 is the latest addition to the company’s Yoga ultrabook series. This sleek and compact laptop features a beautiful all metal construction, and comes with a near edge-less display that looks fantastic. The watchband hinge allows for the display to be rotated up to 360 degrees, which lets you use the device as a tablet as well.
As far as the specifications are concerned, the Yoga 910 will be available in a few variations. The 13.9-inch display will feature either a 1920 x 1080 or 3840 x 2160 resolution. Under the hood, you will options up to the Intel 7th Gen i7 processor, up to 16 GB of RAM, and up to 1 TB of SSD storage. 2 JBL speakers with Dolby ATMOS surround sound features will allow for a great audio experience, and the battery is rated for 10.5 hours with the UHD display option, or up to 15.5 hours with the Full HD iteration.
The device also comes with a fingerprint scanner, providing an additional and useful layer of security. The Lenovo Yoga 910 will run Windows 10, and will be available in gunmetal and silver color iterations.
Lenovo Miix 510
The Miix 510 is Lenovo’s attempt at taking on the Microsoft Surface Pro series, with this 2-in-1 Windows tablet. The tablet comes with an attachable keyboard, that can also serve to protect the display from damage when closed.
As far as the specifications go, there are a few different options available, and you can choose a processing package up to the 6th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, up to 8 GB of RAM, and up to 1 TB of SSD storage. The device comes with a 12.2-inch Full HD display, and the battery is rated for 15.5 hours of use.
The device also comes with an Active Pen stylus, that can be used on the capacitive touch screen. When using the Miix 510 in its tablet form, there is also a small watchband hinge on the back that lets you prop of the device in three different angles. As mentioned, the Lenovo Miix 510 runs Windows 10, and the only color option available so far is Platinum Silver.
Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus
The latest Android tablet from Lenovo retains the Yoga Tab 3 moniker of its predecessors, but adds the Plus suffix to showcase the upgrades that have been made to the latest iteration. Lenovo is touting the Yoga Tab 3 Plus as a great media-consumption companion, and the experience will certainly be excellent on the 10.1-inch Quad HD display, with 4 front-facing JBL speakers with Dolby ATMOS features helping on the audio side.
Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, backed by the Adreno 510 GPU and 3 GB of RAM. 32 GB of on-board storage is further expandable via microSD card, and the tablet offers a decent camera package as well, including a 13 MP rear camera and 5 MP front-facing shooter. Finally, keeping everything running is a large 9,300 mAh battery.
As was also available with its predecessors, the Yoga Tab 3 Plus comes with a kickstand on the back that lets you place the device at a few different angles, as well as a hang mode, with the kickstand coming with an appropriately positioned hole to hang up the tablet.
Made from premium metal, plastic, and PU leather, the Yoga Tab 3 Plus looks great as well, and also offers some form of splash protection, with it coming with a IP52 rating for dust and water resistance. Overall, the Yoga Tab 3 Plus is certainly another solid Android tablet offering from Lenovo.
