Lenovo has today announced the launch of its latest convertible device — Lenovo Yoga Book in India. The device was originally announced at IFA 2016 in two versions – Windows and Android. However, in India, only Windows 10 edition is available. Priced at Rs. 49,999, it will go on sale exclusively on Flipkart from today.
The major talking point about the device is the Halo Keyboard, which can be attached to the touch-based tablet. It is a touch-based keyboard which lights up whenever the user needs it. When the user wants to use the real pen and paper, the keyboard disappears and it turns into a giant writing or drawing pad of sorts. It looks like a good choice for designers to create graphics.
Wacom provides technology support for the Ink Pen. Using this, users can write on a piece of paper with a real pen, and it will digitise those notes. A user just has to place the piece of paper on the Halo keyboard and start writing with the real pen, and the notes will automatically be reflected on the display.
Coming to the specs, the Lenovo Yoga Book features a 10.1-inch full-HD IPS LCD screen, with a maximum brightness of 400 nits. Looking at the screen size, it isn’t large enough to function as a laptop. Under the hood, it is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom x5 processor clocked at 2.4GHz and is paired with 4GB of RAM.
It packs 64GB of internal memory and has a microSD card slot for further expansion of storage. As of the optics, there is an 8-megapixel sensor at the back and a 2-megapixel camera at the front. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0. The Lenovo Yoga Book is powered by a big 8,500 mAh battery that as per the company, can last for around 13 hours.
