Potential leak points to a proper successor to the peculiar Lenovo Yoga Book
Lenovo's 10.1-inch Yoga Book was introduced in 2016 as a sort of replacement for the traditional paper notebook and pen. Its touch-based keyboard was completely flat and tactile-free as if was lifted directly from the control panels of Star Trek. We actually loved the design and the undeniable cool factor even though its slow Cherry Trail Atom x5-Z8550 SoC left a sour taste.
The manufacturer has been quiet on new Yoga Book models ever since, but a new listing on Bluetooth SIG suggests that a second generation model could be in the works. New wireless devices are typically submitted for Bluetooth validation before being available to the general public and so the "Yoga Book 2" may actually be very close to launch - or at least an official announcement - based on this listing alone.
Otherwise, the source does not reveal anything particularly noteworthy about the new Yoga Book. We can likely expect a more responsive AES 2.0 Pen since tablet and stylus functionalities are the highlights of the convertible notebook. Here's hoping that Lenovo moves away from the Atom series to the faster Core m7 or similar if the Yoga Book continues to be passively cooled.
