Lenovo has announced two LTE-supported, Windows 10 detachables the Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i and the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3i. The 2-in-1 devices feature a Surface Pro-like kickstand. However, unlike the Surface Pro devices, the Lenovo Duets come with a keyboard in the box.

The Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i is the first-ever Yoga PC with a detachable, backlit Bluetooth (5.0) keyboard. It is compatible with Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and available with optional LTE/4G coverage. The 2-in-1 offers features like Alexa voice service and facial login via the infrared (IR) camera with Windows Hello.
The device features up to 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processors and Windows 10. It comes equipped with a 13-inch, crystal clear IPS 2K touchscreen display with narrow bezels and 100 percent sRGB and 450 nits brightness.
It also supports the rechargeable Lenovo E-Color Pen, which pen has a built-in smart sensor that lets you pick up colors from guides or any real-life object by simply touching the object’s surface with the pen’s tip while pressing down.
The device is claimed to deliver 10.8 hours of battery life.
