Lenovo has recently launched a variety of products during MWC 2021, with several new Android tablets and a sequel to last year’s Smart Clock. One of which is the Yoga Tab 13, the brand’s first ever tablet to feature a HDMI-in port that was originally unveiled in China back in May.
Besides the aforementioned port which enables it to function as a secondary or portable monitor, the Yoga Tab 13 comes with a 13-inch 2160 x 1350 pixel 60Hz LTPS display and four JBL-tuned speakers arranged into a single built-in soundbar. Under its hood is a Snapdragon 870 chipset, paired with 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and a storage capacity of up to 256GB. Powering the device is a massive 10,000mAh battery with 30W quick charge support.
Next up is the Yoga Tab 11, which features an 11-inch 2000 x 1200 pixel 60Hz LCD display and similar to its larger sibling, it also comes with four JBL speakers. Specs-wise, the tablet is equipped with a MediaTek G90T processor, with memory configurations of up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Its battery capacity is 7,500mAh, which comes with 20W fast charging support.
The Lenovo P11 Plus, on the other hand, is a tablet that supports modular attachments such as a kickstand and keyboard. It features an 11-inch 2000 x 1200 pixel IPS display with a refresh rate of 60Hz, while most of its specifications are similar to the Yoga Tab 11. Specifically, it also comes with a Helio G90T chipset, memory configurations of up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB of storage, as well as a 7,500mAh battery with 20W fast charging capability. The only difference is in the audio department, where the P11 Plus instead is equipped with quad Dolby Atmos speakers.
The last two tablets, the Tab M7 and the Tab M8, are the smaller entry-level and straightforward offerings from Lenovo. The Tab M7 comes with a 7-inch 1024 x 600 display, with a choice of either the Wi-Fi only MediaTek MT8166 or Wi-Fi plus LTE-capable MT8766 SoC, memory configurations of 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, as well as 2MP cameras on its front and rear. Meanwhile the Tab M8 features a 8-inch 1280 x 800 pixel display, a MediaTek Helio P22T chipset, RAM of up to 3GB, 32GB of onboard storage, and an imaging system that consists of a 5MP rear camera and 2MP selfie camera. Details of the tablets’ batteries were not provided, but Lenovo claims that both are able to last up to 10 hours of video playback.
Last but not least in the list of new Lenovo products is the Smart Clock 2, which features a refreshed design over its predecessor. It comes with a 4-inch IPS LCD display, a MediaTek MT8167S SoC, 1GB RAM with 8GB flash memory, a Far-Field microphone array, 3W front-firing speakers, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity, as well as Google Assistant support. There’s also an optional dock which delivers power to the device and features a wireless charging pad for smartphones.

The Yoga Tab 13 and Tab M7 are coming in July at a price of US$680 (~RM2,820) and US$110 respectively, while in August are the Tab 11 at US$320 (~RM1,328) and P11 Plus at US$260, the Smart Clock 2 in September at US$90 (~RM372), and in January 2022 is the Tab M8 which price has yet to be confirmed.
