Earlier, Lenovo Malaysia today announced a new device duo that gives users a new way to use convertible PCs – the YOGA 3 Pro and YOGA Tablet 2. The new 13-inch YOGA 3 Pro is dramatically thinner and lighter than its predecessors with a new striking and sturdy watchband hinge. It uniquely addresses users’ desires for an extremely stylish device, best-in-breed performance capabilities and the hardware and software adaptability they crave. For a new and better way to read, watch, connect and create, the YOGA Tablet 2 Pro redefines the tablet experience with a built-in tablet-projector. The 13-inch entertainment tablet that gives out an exhilarating 8 watts of sound including a subwoofer – a first for a tablet.

YOGA 3 Pro: Optimized Performance with Watchband Hinge

While the YOGA 2 Pro became synonymous with thin and light, the new YOGA 3 Pro takes this concept even further by shaving 17 percent from its predecessor’s frame at just 12.8mm thin – thinner than a pencil when opened. The PC also comes in lighter at 1.19kg – 14 percent less than before – lighter than a bottle of water.

The device achieves this incredibly thin and light design thanks to Lenovo’s new watchband hinge constructed from more than 800 pieces of steel and aluminium. Lenovo engineers redesigned the original YOGA hinge to ensure that it provides the same degree of flexibility and flatness seen in metallic watch bands. Instead of two focus points, there are now six.

Besides that, the YOGA 3 Pro also offers users an excellent experience in any mode from the moment they open the lid. With a QHD+ 3200×1800 display, this bright and clear screen looks amazing whatever the task – editing images in Laptop mode, video chatting in Stand mode, watching movies in Tent mode or online shopping in Tablet mode. Built with durable Gorilla Glass, this screen is designed to hold up to wherever users go.

While videos look stunning, the YOGA 3 Pro makes them sound just as spectacular with premium JBL speakers with Waves Audio, which automatically adjusts the audio in each of the four modes so that the audio still sounds crisp and clear even, when the speakers are not facing the user.

Equipped with an Intel Core M processor, solid state drive storage up to 512 GB SSD and Intel integrated graphics, users can multitask at will, store large digital libraries and experience smooth video playback without lag. The YOGA 3 Pro keeps users connected via high-speed 802.11 a/c WiFi and also allows them to run longer with up to seven hours of battery life.

To advance the concept of adaptive computing and complement the YOGA’s responsive hardware features, Lenovo also created the latest Harmony software experience. Harmony gives YOGA owners a new way to discover applications and customize how they behave when used. For example, when reading an e-book, Harmony will automatically change the brightness and color temperature according to the environment lighting.

When using any presentation software, Harmony can enable motion control or touch depending on the mode, or when watching videos it can optimize the audio settings. Harmony recognizes and optimizes the experience with over 50 of the most popular applications.

Harmony also recommends which apps other YOGA owners find useful and provides a handy shortcut to the apps used most frequently in each mode.

YOGA Tablet 2 Pro: A New Way to Watch and Hear

Developed with Ashton Kutcher, who joined Lenovo as a product engineer a year ago, the new YOGA Tablet 2 Pro is designed to elevate media experience with its star feature a built-in Pico projector. The projector lets users turn inside walls into an instant TV or movie screen. With automatic image adjustment and up to three hours playback time, users can get through a double feature before having to plug in the tablet. The tablet’s enhanced audio system also provides a captivating 8 watts of sound, quadrupling the speaker power of an average tablet. Its dual, large-chamber speakers are front-facing for dynamic audio, and a subwoofer on the back rounds it out with deep bass notes while Dolby Audio and Wolfson Master HiFi ensure a multi-channel listening experience, just like the movies. It also features a QHD 2560×1440 screen for life-like images, designed specifically for digitally-hungry consumers.

The YOGA Tablet 2 Pro makes users’ lives easier in other ways too with a fourth mode – Hang. Now users can interact with the tablet in a new way by hanging it anywhere they want. They can also continue to enjoy the other three original modes: Hold for better angles for reading, Tilt for easily browsing online and Stand for close up content from digital libraries. While loaded with lots of useful features that adapt to user’s lifestyles, the Platinum-colored tablet remains thin and light at just 3.7mm thin and 950 grams.

The new YOGA Tablet 2 Pro also runs on the latest 4th generation Intel Atom processor, helping power smooth multimedia playback and rendering, great for multitaskers. Also, for picture-perfect snapshots, it has an extremely high resolution 8 MP rear camera and plenty of storage equipped with 32GB and up to 64 GB via Micro SD. And with up to 15 hours of battery life and optional 4G3, users can stay mobile nearly around the clock.

With the Brewster app that comes preloaded on the tablet, users now have an app to manage contacts for them. Brewster files contacts from various apps into one address book that merges, de-duplicates, and even adds images to contacts and also shares verified contact information to a user’s contacts.
