Recently, Lenovo announced several new products joining their list of offerings, including the Yoga Tablet 2 running both Android and Windows and the running exclusively Android Yoga Tablet Pro 2. The tablet houses a massive 13.3-inch QHD display and many more equally intriguing features like for example, a built-in projector that enables the user to display the screen’s content on even 50-inch surface. Feel interested in the device? Let’s take a close-up at it.
Lenovo Yoga Tablet Pro 2
The new Lenovo Yoga Tablet Pro 2 packs a quad-core Intel Atom processor paired with 2GB RAM and 32GB of built-in storage that can be expanded via microSD slot up to 64GB. Furthermore, the slate goes on sale equipped with 1.5W front-facing speakers and a back-firing JBL-made subwoofer, which in turn translates to 8W surround sound system guaranteeing a pretty good music experience. There will be also a battery that is said to provide 15 hours of work and entertainment on a single charging under the hood, but as for now its parameters are something of a mystery.
Moving on to the slate’s design, since its just another member of the Yoga family, the new Yoga Tablet Pro 2 goes with a unique kickstand enabling various viewing modes, this time the kickstand is larger and more stable. Apart from the well-known Stand, Tilt and Hold modes, there will be also a completely new Hand mode, thanks to which the tablet’s future users will be able to hang the tablet on the wall. But, seriously, who would like to hang a device that weights almost one kilo (due to its powerful hardware the Yoga Pro 2 weight 950 g)?
Now let’s look at the slate selling point, its pico projector that is housed by the device’s thick end, the one that supports the kickstand. Even though it is definitely an interesting feature, don’t expect high quality viewing, since resolution and brightness that are the essential factors for any projector aren’t the strongest sides of the Yoga Tablet Pro 2. But, still, Lenovo claims that the YogaTablet Pro 2’s projector is able to create a 50-inch 16.9 image.
Speaking of the new Yoga optics, we should mention that the slate is reported to have two cameras, an 8-megapixel rear shooter with LED flash that will be supported by a 720p 1.6-megapixel front-facing one. As it comes to connectivity, the Yoga Tablet Pro 2 is equipped with USB on-the-go, WiFi 800. 11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and LTE support.
Unfortunately, as for now the specific date of the slate’s premiere in stores is still unknown, however, its no-LTE version is being speculated to cost something round $499 and hit the market later this month.
