Lenovo has announced several new products including a new detachable Chromebook and a couple of new tablets during its Tech World 2021 online live stream.
The IdeaPad Duet Chromebook is a bit of a surprise as it is made to be a 2-in-1 detachable instead of hosting a traditional clamshell chassis so that you can enjoy the ChromeOS and the plethora of productivity tools it provides on the go. Yes, you can treat it as a tablet if you want because the display is actually a Samsung OLED panel at 13.3-inch that covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut so you can do some graphical work with it too. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 platform, 8GB RAM, and up to 256GB eMMC storage (ew) while hosting the likes of Google Play Store and its associated service, this device will be able to fill in the gaps of a “laptop” and an Android tablet in one go.
Or instead, you want a premium tablet to do everything you need from entertainment to productivity within a real Android environment? Then the Tab P12 Pro will surely satisfy that desire with its 12.6-inch 16:10 2560×1600 AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate for smooth silky transitions in addition to 107% NTSC color gamut coverage, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision support. Running inside the device is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC and 8GB of RAM with the entire user experience elevated yet again through the new Lenovo Precision Pen 3 that offers ultra-low latency writing, quick Memo app launch on pairing, and wireless charging through magnetic attachment.
If that’s too overkill, we’ll take a step back and talk about the Tab P11 5G that pit against competitors as the world’s 1st Android tablet with innate 5G support so you live in a place that does support the tech, enjoy blazing fast Internet speed to enjoy all your videos and music without hitching. The tablet isn’t weak either as it packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G 5G chipset, 8GB RAM, and 256GB of storage with the display being a 2K IPS panel.
