Lenovo announced the new Yoga Tab 13 for $ 679, a global version of the Yoga Pad Pro which was introduced in China earlier this year. The tablet can function as an external display for a laptop (or a Nintendo Switch or other HDMI device) thanks to the integrated micro-HDMI connection. And with an attached stainless steel stand that rotates 180 degrees from the back of the device, you can stand it up or hang it on a wall.
The Tab 13 was announced along with a number of other Android tablets that Lenovo is slated to launch later this summer, including a smaller Yoga Tab 11, a Tab P11 Plus with a 2000 x 1200 display, and the budget-conscious Tab M7 and Tab M8. (The latter is not sold in the U.S.)
The Tab 13 is compatible with Lenovo’s Precision Pen 2, so you can draw or take notes in an upright position. It includes an 8-megapixel camera (for “smarter log-in” according to Lenovo) with background noise cancellation for video calls. Lenovo claims that it gives you up to 12 hours of battery life and that its 1080p screen can reach 400 nits of brightness.
All new tablets support Google’s new one Entertainment area, which allows users to access videos, books, and games from multiple different apps in a single hub.
Lenovo has a decent track record of entertainment-focused Android devices. It is recently P11 Pro tab, which includes an OLED screen and Dolby Atmos speakers, turned out to be an excellent device for watching movies in our tests, although it wasn’t our productivity device of choice.
