The first day of the Mobile World Congress has brought countless wonders to life, and Lenovo’s creations make no exception. Meet the YOGA Tablet HD+, a slate born in Beijing and revealed in Barcelona, with a 10-inch display that offers crisp resolution, an almost threatening battery life and performances to suite the company. As you’ve probably hinted, this is actually Lenovo’s second attempt at a 10-inch slate with an impressive battery life and extended use.
Pretty much as any member of the YOGA family, flexibility is the key. This year, Lenovo starts the show with an upgraded slate that can be used in three different modes: Hold, Tilt and Stand, each and every one of them suited for different scenarios. Thanks to its cylindrical battery design, users can enjoy the extra height difference to place the gadget on a table for improved viewing angles or, use the built-in kickstand to actually use the slate as a laptop screen, which works perfectly with a wireless keyboard.
YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ Specifications and Features
In a few words, the YOGA Tablet 10 HD+ is actually an improved version of the first release, one that preserves key features like battery life and processing power, while adding a crisper resolution to the Full HD display. In matters of new technology, Lenovo has also included a top-of-the line processor and an extra-sharp camera, mounted on the back of the unit.
To be more precise, the new YOGA Tablet 10 HD + comes with a 10.1-inch Full HD display that offers 20/20 vision and renders content at 1920 x 1200 resolution. This panel is not only crisp, but also bright, thanks to the Smart Display feature which will automatically adjust the content brightness based on the ambient light.
On the processing side, Lenovo has fitted a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor equipped with a quad-core CPU clocked at a blazing frequency and enough RAM to suite your needs and enough internal storage to accommodate your precious media.
The new YOGA 10 is powered by Android 4.3 and the slate also comes with an enhanced Dolby audio experience, 10-point multitouch sensitive screen and a micro USB port which can accommodate an optional keyboard for those who are still into wires. On the other side, the YOGA 10 HD+ includes an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera which was deemed sufficient for capturing quality pictures and videos. Oh, and did I mention the 18 hour battery use?
When it comes to brand-specific features and applications, Lenovo has simply re-invented the DOit suite, which includes the followings:
- SHAREit – sharing can now be done with up to five devices without an internet connection, whatsoever. This includes pictures, videos, music, documents, contacts and even entire applications.
- SECUREit – a data protection software, which acts as a shield against viruses, email spam and malware, but also includes an anti-theft solution, in case the gadget is lost or stolen.
- SYNCit– Lenovo’s own back-up software, which can instantly save crucial information, including contacts, text messages and call logs, in the cloud.
- SNAPit – a sort of an intelligent camera application which offers flexibility in shooting pictures using panorama or burst modes, including those situations when the viewing angle is quite wide or the light is not sufficient. Also, the application comes with specific filters and effects, and also allows users to create animated GIF files or remove unwanted objects.
In matters of price and availability, the YOGA Tablet HD+ will be released in April this year, for just $349. Those interested can directly purchase the slate from Lenovo’s website.
