MWC 2022 | Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3 Chromebook launched as a laptop replacement with a 2K display
Lenovo has revealed the IdeaPad Duet 3 Chromebook, one of many laptops that the company has unveiled at MWC 2022. As its name suggest, the IdeaPad Duet 3 relies on Chrome OS, unlike the IdeaPad Duet 5i. Additionally, the IdeaPad Duet 3 can act as a laptop replacement thanks to its detachable keyboard. Incidentally, the tablet supports pen input too.
All IdeaPad Duet 3 configurations feature an 11-inch display that has a 2K resolution. Unusually, the tablet has a 5:3 aspect ratio; Lenovo has not disclosed the IdeaPad Duet 3's native resolution, though. For reference, the tablet has a 5 MP front-facing camera and an 8 MP rear-facing one for video conferencing.
Also, Lenovo has equipped the IdeaPad Duet 3 with a Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 SoC, along with 4 GB or 8 GB of RAM and a trio of storage options. Sadly, all storage options are of the eMMC flash variety, a much slower alternative to NVMe SSDs. Purportedly, the IdeaPad Duet 3 offers up to 12 hours battery life, although Lenovo has not confirmed the tablet's battery capacity.
Lenovo will begin selling the IdeaPad Duet 3 in May 2022 from €349. The tablet will be available in two colours and will weigh nearly 1 kg with its Folio Case attached.
