MWC 2014: Lenovo Introduces $349 Yoga 10 HD+ Tablet
Lenovo has just introduced a new member to its Yoga tablet family. As you probably remember, the first Yoga tablets were announced back in October getting their power from a dual-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 processor and including 8” and 10” displays, but with a resolution of no more than 1280×800 pixels. We have all wanted much more from both these tablets and at least this time Lenovo is prepared to do things wright when it comes to its new Yoga 10 HD+. So, despite of the fact that all these models share a similar thin aluminum body that leads to a cylindrical edge, don’t be fooled by appearances; various improvements have been added here, just waiting to be discovered:
New display, better processor, improved battery life
As you can see from its name, the new Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ comes with a 10.1-inch display, but its resolution has also been changes from the initial 1280×800 to 1920×1080 pixels, so we can finally be talking about Full HD quality.
Moreover, Lenovo has also bumped the processor by offering us a 1.6GHz, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 2GB of RAM. And this time, you can choose between two 16GB or 32GB storage versions, also having the chance to add up to 64GB of additional storage by using the included microSD slot.
Are you worried about the battery life? This Yoga 10 HD+ tablet promises an improved life of up to no less than 18 hours thanks to its massive 9000 mAh battery, so just see the bigger picture here, having a successor of the original Yoga 10 HD with a different battery life, as well as a better display and faster processor.
Unfortunately, Lenovo is shipping its tablet with Android 4.3, but we can assure you that an over-the-air update to Android 4.4 KitKat will be provided in May. As for those of you who might want to transform this Yoga 10 HD+ into an Android-powered laptop, you’ll have the possibility to do so, by simply adding an optional keyboard accessory.
Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ will be available in April via major retailers and through their online store in different regions; as for its starting at $349 for the 16GB version, we can only say that it is just what we could expect given the improved specs that we have just seen, but we still don’t know the price for the 32GB model.
