Lenovo has launched the Yoga Pad Pro 13 in China. This Android tablet from Lenovo comes with a bunch of exciting features like kickstand-cum-handle, flagship-level chipset, stellar display, and the ability to use it as an external monitor. In this post, we will be discussing each of these features in detail along with the expected price of the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro 13 in Nepal.
Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro 13 Overview:
Design and Display
Let us start with the display. The 13-inch LTPS panel on the Yoga Pad Pro has a 2160 x 1350 resolution with a 16:10 aspect ratio. Also, the screen covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut and it can get as bright as 400 nits. That’s not all. It even supports multiple HDR formats such as HDR10 and Dolby Vision. This screen is also TÜV Rheinland certified for low blue light emission.
You can even buy a “Xiaoxin” stylus separately to go with the tablet. It has 4,096 different pressure levels.
The tablet has an Alcantara exterior which is common in sports cars. The handle or the kickstand is made from CNC-machined stainless steel. It can rotate 180-degree and weighs around 830 grams.
Performance and Software
Lenovo has not compromised in the performance department either. Yoga Pad Pro 13 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 chipset. It is clocked slightly higher than last year’s flagship Snapdragon 865+. The Prime core on the 870 can go as high as 3.2GHz. This has been paired with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. Thus, the tablet is capable of all basic tasks and even gaming.
Yoga Pad Pro ships with Lenovo’s ZUI 12.5, which is based on Android 11. It comes with a feature that can force landscape modes in apps that do not support it natively. There is also a dedicated computer mode for easy multi-window operation.
Children can benefit from the built-in learning platform. Additionally, parents can monitor their children’s usage from an app too. Similarly, it also supports app projection to an external display through an HDMI connection.
Rest of the specs
Fueling the tablet is a 10,200mAh battery that is rated for 12 hours and 8.5 hours of video playback in tablet and display mode, respectively. It has a USB 3.1 Type-C port that supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4 protocol.
There’s also the aforementioned Micro HDMI port for a wired connection that allows you to use the tablet as an external display. For wireless connectivity, the tablet has Wi-Fi 6 (2×2 MIMO) and Bluetooth 5.2.
The audio setup here consists of four JBL speakers with a 5cc cavity each. Together, they contribute to 9W of output (2x 2.5W + 2x 2W).
Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro has a ToF sensor on the 8MP front-facing camera for Face Unlock. This hardware implementation is much safer than the software-based Face Unlock that we find on most Android devices.
