Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro premieres: the 13-inch tablet that many laptops will envy


    On Tuesday, May 25, the Chinese company Lenovo, as planned, held a presentation of its new tablets. The highlight of the event was the large 13-inch Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro tablet. The novelty boasts a high-end display that many laptops will envy, and a unique case design with an integrated handle. But let’s talk about everything in order.

    At the front, the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro has a 13-inch LCD LTPS display with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,350 pixels, a 16-to-10 aspect ratio, 100 percent sRGB color space coverage, a maximum brightness of 400 nits, and support for HDR10 and Dolby Vision. Inside the tablet is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 octa-core sub-flagship chipset, combined with 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB UFS 3.0 built-in storage. A 10 200 mAh battery is responsible for the autonomy of the tablet. Its capacity, according to the manufacturer, is enough for more than 12 hours of operation without recharging in video viewing mode. The battery supports Quick Charge 4 fast charging technology via USB Type-C 3.1 port. And the new Lenovo tablet is controlled by the Android 11 mobile operating system with the proprietary ZUI 12.5 shell installed on top.

    Unfortunately, the tablet only has one camera. It is an 8MP front-facing module coupled with a 3D ToF sensor for facial recognition. But the novelty has a microHDMI port, four JBL speakers with amplifiers, Dolby Atmos support and a total power of 9 watts. From wireless connections, it supports Wi-Fi 6 (2×2 MIMO) and Bluetooth 5.2.

    The design of Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro deserves special attention. It is housed in a stylish case with an Alcantara-coated case back and a special durable stainless steel handle. This handle can be used not only to carry your tablet, but also as a stand. The tablet weighs quite impressively — 830 grams.

    Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro is already available for pre-order in China. The issue price is 3300 yuan, or about $ 515 at the current exchange rate. When the new tablet will appear in other countries and how much it will cost, the manufacturer does not specify.
