Lenovo have taken to CES to announce the Chrome OS tablet that leaked last month after Lenovo was seeking people to test the tablet before launch. The new Chromes OS tablet is called Lenovo Chromebook Duet in the US and Canada, and Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook in other markets.
In North America, Lenovo says it will launch this Chromebook in May 2020, starting at $279.
Lenovo Chromebook Duet aka Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook, is a 10.1-inch Full HD Chrome OS tablet with a 1920 x 1200 resolution display with 400 nits brightness.
It is the first tablet to be announced with the octa-core 2.0 GHz MediaTek Helio P60T processor. Configuration options are between 64GB or 128GB storage, with 4GB LPDDR4X RAM.
Other specs are 2×2 dual-band Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 4.2, stereo speakers, dual mics, a 2MP front camera, a 8MP rear camera, and a 10 hour battery life from 7180 mAh battery.
The only ports is USB C port, so a USB C to 3.5mm audio jack ins included with the tablet. The tablet is pretty slim, at 7.35mm, and a weight of 450 grams.
The keyboard cover is a pogo pin connected keyboard with trackpad, but being a 2-in-1 Chromebook under $300, it doesn’t feature things like fingerprint reader of course.
