A Weibo account associated with Lenovo has released teasers for a new tablet called the Yoga Pad Pro - which might prove to be the Chinese variant of a slate to be called the Yoga Tab 13 in international markets. It is to be accompanied by another 11-inch tablet, as well as what might be a Yoga Duet 7i refresh.

A Weibo channel dedicated to Lenovo's Chinese-market brand Xiaoxin has confirmed the imminent launch of the Yoga Pad Pro in this country. It has neglected to expand on specs or features for this product; however, the leaker Digital Chat Station claims that it is a 13-inch slate that runs on the Snapdragon 870 SoC and has a 2K display.

These details are eerily reminiscent of recent leaks pointing to the imminent arrival of the Yoga Tab 13. Therefore, it is possible that it and the Pad Pro are global and Chinese versions of the same tablet respectively. In more surprising news, it is to be joined at its debut by something called the Xiaoxin Pad Plus.

Its specs have also been left to the imagination at yet - but that is not good enough for Digital Chat Station, who purports to out it as an 11-inch device with the Snapdragon 750G processor. It may thus be the first 5G device from the pre-existing Xiaoxin Pad line.

Given that the same series is marketed as the Tab P11 and P11 Pro outside China, it is possible that they might also gain a 5G-capable sibling soon. The Yoga Pad Pro and Xiaoxin Pad Plus are slated to run Android 11. The also-impending Yoga Duet 2021, on the other hand, is likely to be a Windows device.

It is in fact projected to be a Yoga Duet 2020 (or Yoga Duet 7i) refresh, with Intel Core i5-1135G7 or i7-1165G7 CPUs, alongside up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB SSDs. Despite all this hype, be it official or less so, Lenovo has yet to specify when exactly these 3 new products are to be unveiled.
