The brand new Lenovo Yoga Tab 11 was released in the US today, where it’s shipping from both Lenovo and Best Buy today, with a launch price of $319:
Lenovo Yoga Tab 11 isn’t just a Lenovo tablet but one of their Yoga tablets, which means that it’s distinguished by the cylinder at the bottom of it, which combines as a kickstand, hook for hanging up the tablet, and a battery life that’s 50% over the norm. On top of that, as a Yoga tablet, it also has the loudest or the most powerful tablet speakers too with four JBL speakers featuring Dolby Atmos, in combinations of 2x 2W speakers, and 2x 1W speakers.
Lenovo has two configuration options of the Lenovo Yoga Tab 11. They are both 11-inch Android 11 tablets with a 2000 x 1200 resolution display and a 2.05 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT8185 Helio G90T processor. But they differ between options of 4GB RAM (LPDDR4x) / 128GB (UFS 2.1) storage, and 8GB RAM / 256GB storage. The latter model will launch later this fall.
|UPDATE: The Android 12 update will start rolling out to this tablet on August 30, 2022.|
It’s fair to say that Lenovo Yoga Tab 11 is geared towards movies, music, playing games with a good sound, web browsing, and running power consuming apps and background apps with push alerts, and is a perfect tablet to use around the house. With the beefed up speakers and long battery life, it weighs 655 grams, which makes it the most ideal for standing and hanging, although it is comfortable to hold in one hand too. But if you want a light 11-inch tablet to carry with you instead, the 490 grams Lenovo Tab P11 Plus is a better option.
Other specs that makes the Lenovo Yoga Tab 11 a user friendly tablet apart from the 15 hour battery squeezed out of a 7700 mAh battery, includes 8MP front and rear cameras for pictures and video calls, dual-band Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, facial unlocking, Lenovo Precision Pen 2 compatibility if you want to used a stylus pen with this tablet, accelerometer, g-sensor, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, and a vibrator.
It also has dual mics, a microSD card slot with 512GB support or 1TB in exFAT, a USB C 2.0 port, and 20W quick charge support.
The Lenovo Yoga Tab 11 is unique as Samsung and other tablet brands haven’t got anything similar in this kind of package. So that makes it hard to compare. So if you know what features you want in a tablet, it should be easy to know if Lenovo Yoga Tab 11 is for you.
