Lenovo Yoga 910 and Yoga Tab 3 Plus bring hi-res with low-impact form factors
Lenovo has a few separate products that are also getting their play before IFA today. That includes what the company claims as the thinnest convertible tablet running the latest Intel Core i processors and a simple Android tablet with killer media specs and a battery to last.
But both the Yoga 910 and Yoga Tab 3 Plus, though, are said to get screens right.
The Windows 10-running Yoga 910 is a 13.9-inch convertible that has a full HD IPS screen (or 4K if you can will it so) showing off the full sRGB gamut with only a 5mm bezel around the edges. Dolby Audio Premium enriches sound from the JBL speakers while the battery, rated at 15.5 hours of use at 1080p or 10.5 hours at 4K, should get you through an entire season of “Game of Thrones” — Lenovo’s approximation, not ours.
The body ends up at 14.3mm thick and 3.04 lbs — yes, even at that mass, it can still be folded up. It houses a Windows Hello-enabled fingerprint scanner. Memory-wise, options go up to 16GB of RAM and a 1TB PCIe SSD. There are two USB-C ports, one on the 3.0 standard with video-out, the other on 2.0. A Type-A USB 3.0 port is also included as well as a memory card reader.
A base model Yoga 910 is expected to cost $1,299.
The Yoga Tab 3 Plus takes things down a notch, but still delivers quad HD visuals on a 10.1-inch display with Technicolor enhancements and Dolby Atmos sound on four JBL speakers. The Android tablet can also stream audio and video to other devices via Bluetooth and Miracast. And it’ll do so for an estimated 18 hours on its 9.3Ah battery. It’ll also get back into action quickly with a 24W fast charger.
Media is a bigger deal than, say, gaming for the Tab 3 Plus — it runs the Snapdragon 652 chipset, which is known to churn heat with a heavy load. There’s 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. A USB-C port’s on the device along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. On back is a 13-megapixel camera and there’s a 5-megapixel one in front. The tablet’s splash-resistant with an IP52 rating. There are two SKUs mainly for cellular connectivity — one for the Asia-Pacific and EMEA regions, one for Japan, Latin America, Taiwan and Oceania.
The Yoga Tab 3 Plus is $299.99. Both it and the Yoga 910 are expected on the market in October.
