Remember the mysterious Lenovo E-Color Pen we discovered earlier in May? Well today Lenovo announced the tablet that goes along with it, and it’s called Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i. This is a new Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet expected to launch in June from €1199.
Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i (or Lenovo Yoga Duet 2020 as it will be called in China), is a 13-inch Windows 10 Home / Pro tablet in the mid-range to high-end range of 2-in-1 tablets, a bit like a larger Surface Pro 7.
Processor options are between 10th gen. Intel Core i3-10110U, i5-10210U, and i7-10510U, with 4GB/8GB/16GB options of DDR4 RAM, and 128GB/256GB/512GB/1TB of PCIe SSD storage.
The Lenovo E-Color pen that the Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i introduces, is a rechargeable digitizer with a smart sensor that lets users pick colors even from physical real life objects that can then be exported to an app on the tablet.
Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i is also lighter than other tablets of this size. With a total weight of 1.16kg with the keyboard included, it will be easy to carry. It also has Wi-Fi 6 and optional 4G LTE.
The 13-inch screen is a Dolby Vision 100% sRGB screen with a display resolution of 2160 x 1350, while the stereo speakers are Dolby Audio speakers with Smart Amp.
With a 12.3 hour battery life (measured by Full HD video playback), it has a long battery life too. But at this price, it should feature that anyway.
Speaking of features, the Windows Hello login camera will not only let you log in effortlessly, but the facial recognition will even let you know if someone is reading over your shoulder through the Glance Security feature.
The cameras are a 5MP front camera and 5MP rear camera, and we also get Alexa built-in, Bluetooth 5.0, a backlit keyboard, 3x USB C ports, a microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm audio combo jack.
The two color options are grey and orchid, with the colors extending from the back of the tablet and sides of the tablet over to the keyboard.
