The Lenovo YOGA Tab 3 Pro is similar to the 10 inch YOGA Tab 3, but with some big upgrades. Its 10 inch IPS screen is QHD 2560 x 1600 pixels resolution with 299 nits. It’s running Android 5.1 on an Intel Atom x5-Z8500 processor. You’ve also got IP21 splash proofing, four front-facing speakers with Dolby Atmos 3D Surround Sound, a 10200 mAh battery for up to 18 hours of use, a 13 megapixel AF rear camera and a 5 megapixel AF front-facing camera.
Oh, it’s also got a 70 inch rotating Pico Projector with 50 nits, digital focus, and gesture control. The previous Lenovo YOGA Tab 2 Pro had the projector in the tip of the battery cylinder at the end. That meant that you couldn’t really aim the projector anywhere but parallel to the surface it was sitting on.
Now, with the YOGA Tab 3 Pro, the projector is in the spine of the cylinder as part of the rotating kickstand. That means you can much more easily aim the projector onto walls, screens, or even the ceiling. You can still use the kickstand to prop up the tablet’s screen if you want to, but now it doubles as a stand for aiming the projector. Also note, like the YOGA Tab 3’s, this has a button hole in the kickstand which you can use to hang the tablet from a hook. url: public://2015/08/LenovoTab3Pro_DSC2216.jpg alt: LenovoTab3Pro_DSC2216 align: center
The backing looks very professional in black with a “puma leather” coating. It really feels great, too.
For some reason, the YOGA Tab 3 Pro does not have a rotating camera like the other YOGA Tab 3s. Instead you’ve got a stationary 13 megapixel camera on the back side of the battery cylinder and a 5 megapixel camera on the front inside the bezel. url: public://2015/08/LenovoTab3Pro_DSC2232.jpg alt: LenovoTab3Pro_DSC2232 align: center
On one side of the battery cylinder is the power button while the other side has the projector power button. From this angle you can see just how much thicker the battery cylinder is compared to the rest of the tablet. As we mentioned in regards to the consumer YOGA Tab 3s, this cylinder actually makes holding the tablet very comfortable, and the set-down angles it provides for the screen are very welcome.
The Lenovo YOGA Tab 3 Pro adds a lot of high-end Android features to the Tab 3 line of tablets and the included projector is great for small business users that need to share presentations, photos, or videos frequently. The YOGA Tab 3 Pro will be available starting at $399 for the WiFi version or you can get the LTE version which will start at $499.
