With the Duet 7i, Lenovo’s Yoga PC Series goes detachable

June 21, 2020

As we are finding out, remote working, online learning, and virtual social gatherings do not have to be hosted from any particular place – all it takes is the right technology. With grab-and-go form factors, our screens are our lifelines when we’re on-the-go or just moving from room to room in our own homes. Which brings us to Lenovo’s new LTE-supported, Windows 10 detachable – the portable Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i1. The Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i is the first-ever Yoga PC with a detachable, backlit Bluetooth (5.0) keyboard to enable freestyle working mode, plus an adjustable kickstand for easier viewing and switching into drafting mode. Compatible with Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) for an ultra-fast connection and available with optional LTE/4G coverage that allows you to stay connected from almost anywhere, including when your shared home Wi-Fi is stretched thin. Designed to streamline your day, this 2-in-1 offers a range of smart features, such as more secure facial login via the infrared (IR) camera with Windows Hello that works 3x faster than if you only used a password. Clever presence-sensing features from Glance by Mirametrix help protect your screen from shoulder-surfing neighbors and pauses video play when you walk away; you can also move content from your display to a connected monitor with a turn of your head. Featuring up to 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processors and Windows 10, the Yoga Duet 7i offers a powerful combination of intelligent performance, connectivity, and stunning entertainment. It has a 13-inch, crystal clear IPS 2K touchscreen display with narrow bezels and 100 percent sRGB for a dazzling color gamut at 450 nits bright. Lenovo have also announced availability of the upgraded Lenovo Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus (2nd Gen). This newly designed tablet is easier to set up and sports a more expansive 10.3-inch Full HD IPS screen, a faster and more powerful mobile processor, and a sleek Platinum Grey metal back cover. Designed to be portable and light at 460 grams , the technology inside the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus (2nd Gen) gets a significant boost with up to 2.3Ghz Octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 mobile processor for more multitasking, plus a TDDI chip (Touch and Display Driver Integration) for better and more efficient display and touch sensing for up to 9 hours of battery life.
