Lenovo has announced a new Android tablet which looks similar to the recently launched Yoga Book. The Yoga A12 is a new 2-in-1 Android hybrid which gets the same flat, slate-like digital keyboard with a $299 (around Rs 20,000) price tag.
The A12 retains the Halo Keyboard and haptic feedback, but loses the pen support and drawing pad features. Inside there’s an Intel Atom x5 processor, 2GB RAM, and 32GB of storage. Windows 10 is gone as an option, making this a purely Android experience.
The magnesium/aluminum mix casing can be adjusted between 4 modes thanks to the 360-degree Yoga hinge, allowing the A12 to be used like a laptop, tablet, or positioned for media consumption.
Although detailed specs have yet to be released, Lenovo claims the A12 is only 5.4mm thick (at its thinnest point) and weighs under one kilogram. For audio there’s two speakers and Dolby Atmos support. Battery life is rated by Lenovo at 13 hours based on a “mixed use profile that includes online browsing, playing music and video, reading and typing.”
The Yoga A12 will go on sale on February 8 for $299 in either Gunmetal Gray or Rose Gold finishes.
