The new Lenovo Chromebook with OLED that I leaked yesterday was announced by Lenovo today on September 8, as the Lenovo IdeaPad Chromebook Duet 5.
This is an interesting Chrome tablet. It`s the first Chromebook tablet to be powered by Qualcomm`s Snapdragon 7c gen 2 processor, in tow with options of 4GB or 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and 64GB, 28GB, or 256GB of storage.
The really interesting hardware lies more in the 13.3-inch screen with an OLED Full HD display featuring a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and 400 nits max brightness.
Not only that, but the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet Chromebook 5 is even equipped with quad speakers at 1W each, another first on a Chromebok tablet.
Other specs includes a 5MP front camera, an 8MP rear camera, a 42Wh battery with rapid charge, support for a USI 1.0 stylus pen, Wi-Fi 5, BT 5.1, 2x USB C 3.0 port, and a trackpad on the keyboard.
Color choices are Abyss Blue and Storm Grey. When it comes to the size of it, the Chromebook Duet 5 weighs 700 grams and is 7.5mm thick.
Lenovo says it will release the IdeaPad Duet Chromebook in North America in October from $429.
