Lenovo unveils slew of new products at IFA 2016


Lenovo yesterday launched its latest range of products including a new ultrabook, new tablets, and two-in-one devices running Android or Windows 10. Here are the Lenovo Yoga Book, the Yoga 910, Miix 510, and Yoga Tab 3 Plus.

Lenovo Yoga Book

The Lenovo Yoga Book creates an odd niche little category for itself smack in the centre between a laptop, a two-in-one convertible and a tablet. The Yoga Book has a thickness of just 9.6mm and weighs a mere 690g. It has a unique watchband hinge that allows it to be rotated completely.

It comes with a 10.1-inch 1080p display, Intel Atom x5 processor supported by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which is expandable through microSD to 128GB. The battery on the Yoga Book is reasonably large at 8,500mAh. It has an 8MP rear camera and 2MP front snapper.

The most unique part of the Yoga Book is the Halo keyboard. It is a capacitive keyboard of sorts that lights up depending on how you’re using it. Firstly, it can be used as a regular keyboard with QWERTY keys. Secondly, the keyboard acts as a drawing board using a dedicated pen (comes in the box) that can recognise up to 2,048 pressure points. Last but not least, you can place a notepad or paper on the keyboard and write your notes or draw your sketches as you would and it will automatically scan and digitise everything. You can also do the same on the pad itself while seeing it replicated on your screen.

The Lenovo Yoga Book will be available in Windows as well as Android 6.0 Marhsmallow variants and in gold and gun metal colours.


Lenovo Yoga 910

The power packed Lenovo Yoga 910 is the latest iteration in its ultrabook series. The all-metal Yoga comes with an almost edge-less display and a watchband hinge that allows its 360-degree rotation.

There will be a few variants for the device but the pack is lead by the 13-inch display model. It features a Full HD or 4K display, an Intel seventh-gen i7 processor, up to 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage. Adding to that are two JBL speakers with Dolby ATMOS surround sound and a battery said to provide 10.5 and 15.5 hrs of battery life on the 4K and Full HD displays respectively. Security is provided through a built-in fingerprint scanner. The Yoga 910 will run Windows 10.


Lenovo Miix 510


Going head to head with the Microsoft Surface Pro series, Lenovo has introduced the Miix 510. It’s a two-in-one Windows 10 tablet with a detachable keyboard that also works as a cover for the display when not in use.

The display on the device is a 12.2-inch 1080p display. Specs-wise, the Miix 510 will come with a series of variants led by the model with a sixth-generation i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage. Battery life is said to reach 15.5 hrs.

Like the Surface Pro, the Miix 510 also comes with a Active Pen stylus meant for the device. The device comes in platinum silver.



Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus

On the tablet front, Lenovo introduced the latest iteration of its Android tablet series, the Yoga Tab 3 Plus.

The Yoga Tab 3 Plus comes with a 10.1-inch 2K display and four front-facing JBL speakers with Dolby ATMOS sound. Specifications include a Snapdragon 652 processor backed by 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage (expandable to 128GB via microSD) and an Adreno 510 GPU. It also has a 13MP camera on the back and a 5MP front snapper. At 9,300 mAh, the battery is huge.

The Yoga Tab series is known for its unique design and kickstand that allows you to use the device is various orientations and angles, including a hang mode where you literally hang the device on a hook.

The device is made from metal, plastic as well as faux leather, which gives it an incredible feel and build quality. The Yoga Tab 3 Plus also comes with an IP52 splash-resistance certification. The device will come running Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
