Lenovo announced the new Yoga Tab 13 at $ 679, a global version of the Yoga Pad Pro that launched in China earlier this year. The tablet can function as an external display for a laptop (or Nintendo Switch or any other HDMI device), thanks to its built-in Micro HDMI port. And with an attached stainless steel kickstand that can rotate 180 degrees from the back of the device, you can stand it upright or hang it on a wall.
The Tab 13 was announced alongside a slew of other Android tablets Lenovo plans to launch later this summer, including a smaller Yoga Tab 11, a Tab P11 Plus with a 2000 x 1200 display, and the Tab M7s. and Tab M8 economical. (The latter will not be sold in the United States.)
The Tab 13 is compatible with Lenovo’s Precision Pen 2, which means you can draw or take notes while it’s docked. It includes an 8-megapixel camera (for “a smarter connection”, by Lenovo) with background noise reduction for video calls. Lenovo claims you’ll get up to 12 hours of battery life, and its 1080p display can hit 400 nits of brightness.
All of the new tablets support Google’s new Entertainment Space, which allows users to access videos, books and games from several different apps in a single hub.
Lenovo has a decent track record with entertainment-focused Android devices. Its recent Tab P11 Pro, which features an OLED display and Dolby Atmos speakers, turned out to be a great movie-watching machine in our tests, even though it wasn’t our favorite productivity device.
