Some time ago, we learned that Lenovo was planning to launch a high-end tablet in China called the Yoga Pad Pro (formerly known as the Lenovo Yoga X). It is now official and brings forth some exciting specs, including a flagship-grade SoC, powerful speakers and a screen with a variable aspect ratio. One can also use the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro as an external display for peripherals such as notebooks and smartphones via the included micro-HDMI port. This is undoubtedly one of the more exciting launches of 2021, and we can only hope that Lenovo launches the tablet worldwide.
Moving on to the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro's specs, we get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset, coupled with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. It runs Android 11 customized with Lenovo's ZUI out of the box. Connecting it to an external display will also let you enable a desktop mode, similar to what we've seen with Samsung DeX. Lenovo thinks that users rarely use a tablet's rear camera. That's why it has done away with it altogether-the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro ships with a single 8MP front-facing camera along with a ToF sensor.
The Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro has a 13-inch LTPS LCD panel with 2,160 x 1,350 pixels (16:10) resolution and 400 nits peak brightness. While the panel's refresh rate is capped at 60Hz, it supports HDR10, Dolby Vision and covers 100% of the sRGB spectrum. These specs make it an excellent candidate for a portable secondary display. Furthermore, the tablet draws power from a 10,000mAh battery. Lenovo hasn't mentioned its charging wattage, but we can expect it to be around the 45W ballpark.
Other Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro features include Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2. Its one-of-a-kind design reimagines the concept of tablets entirely. Lenovo rounded off the bottom edge and made it thicker to accommodate the speakers and ports. The tablet's body is made of Alcantara, giving it a smooth, velvet-like finish. There's a kickstand attached to the body, too. Lastly, the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro also supports touch-based inputs, but one has to purchase a stylus separately. Currently, the tablet is only available in China for CNY 3,300 (US$515).
