Lenovo Yoga Android tablets with 18 hours of battery life
Yesterday morning, at an event in YouTube LA Space, Lenovo Yoga unveiled two new Android tablets — the Yoga 8-inch and the Yoga 10-inch. These tablets are priced at $249 (Rs 15,200 approximately) for the 8-inch tab and $299 (Rs 18,300 approximately) for the 10-inch tab and for now have only been launched for the US market.
Talking about the specifications, both the 8-inch and 10-inch variants support a resolution of 1280×800 pixels and are powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT8125 processor for the Wi-Fi version and the MediaTek MT8389 processor for the 3G version.
Lenovo Yoga tablets come with auto-detection software that automatically brings up frequently used apps in hold and stand modes. The cylindrical handle not only offers better usability, but also packs powerful batteries that are usually found in laptops and that ensures that these Yoga tablets provide a battery life of 18 hours. Thanks to the USB On The Go feature, Lenovo Yoga tablets can also be used to charge otherdevices like smartphones.
