Lenovo’s IFA 2016 lineup expanded with additions to the Yoga series of notebooks and tablets. The Yoga 910 looks like an updated Yoga 900; but gains an edge-to-edge display similar to the that of Dell’s Infinity Edge. On the other hand, the Yoga Tab 3 Plus is an extension of the Yoga Tab 3 family aimed squarely at media consumption.
The chassis of the Lenovo Yoga 910 should be one that is fairly familiar to Lenovo users. It retains the same finish, along with the watchband hinge. As mentioned above, the Yoga 910 now sports an edge-to-edge display that stretches its 13.3-inch screen to something closer to 14-inches. The resolution has also been bumped up to a choice between 4K and 1080p.
Processor options go up to the new seventh generation Intel Core i7 processor, while memory goes up to 16GB RAM and a 1TB HDD. Lenovo is also claiming that the “world’s thinnest convertible” will have 15.5 hours of battery life. Windows Hello can also be used through the fingerprint reader on the Yoga 910; although that isn’t really a new feature on the Yoga series.
The Yoga Tab 3 Plus is the latest addition to the Yoga Tab 3 family. While this 10.1-inch tablet is aimed at media consumption, it appears to have dropped the pico projector from its smaller cousins. It makes up for this change by bumping the display resolution to 2K; and adding four JBL front facing speakers.
With up to 18 hours of battery life, the Yoga Tab 3 Plus is intended to be able to stream media to other devices using the Lenovo Media Cast feature.
The Lenovo Yoga 910 will be available from October for €1499 (about RM6800). While the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Plus will be sold for €299 (about RM1250) in November. These prices include European VAT, and the global price should be somewhat lower.
