After a long wait, the 13-inch Windows 2-in-1 tablet Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i will finally be released tomorrow, in three configuration options, with the launch price starting at $1,049:
But we do get some goodies included with that, as both the backlit keyboard and the color sensing Lenovo E-Color Pen is included in the price of the Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i.
The three Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i models are, an Intel Core i5-10210U / 8GB RAM / 256GB model for $1,049, an Intel Core i7-10510U / 8GB RAM / 512GB model for $1,199, and the flagship model with Intel Core i7-10510U / 16GB RAM / 1TB for $1,399.
Specifications for these components are DDR4 RAM at 2667 MHz, PCIe NVMe SSD 3.0 x 4 storage, Intel UHD Graphics GPU, while the 13-inch screen has 2160 x 1350 resolution display at 450 nits brightness, covered by Gorilla Glass, and featuring both 100% sRGB and Dolby Vision.
The OS options are between Windows 10 Home and Pro, other features includes Alexa digital assistant, the IR camera for facial recognition login, Discrete TPM 2.0, a TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certified screen, and what nobody else has – the innovative Lenovo E-Color Pen that lets users sense the color of any real world physical object, and have it reproduced on the tablet.
Apple is working on this technology too, but Lenovo beat them to it.
Other Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i main specs we need to mention, includes the latest dual-band Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, 2x array mics, 1W stereo speakers with Dolby Audio and a Smart Amp for a little sound boost, a 5MP front camera + IR camera and 5MP rear camera, and a 10 hour battery life from a 42Wh battery that supported by a 45W adapter.
The tablet case is made of magnesium and aluminum, giving the tablet a weight of 798.8 grams while the keyboard cover weighs 369.5 grams. The tablet thickness is 9.19mm.
Ports includes an SD card slot, a 3.5mm audio combo jack, a HDMI port, and 3x USB C 3.2 Gen 1 ports with Power Delivery 3.0 support and 4K 3840 x 2160 resolution 60Hz external monitor support.
So a very interesting alternative to the 13-inch Surface Pro X and the 13.5-inch Surface Book 3, as well as the Surface Pro 7.
