Lenovo Yoga Tablet 3, Yoga Tablet 3 Pro (with projector) announced

Besides the battery-rich P1 and the very selfie phone, the Vibe S1, Lenovo has also taken the wraps off of a new range of Yoga tablets.

The Chinese company has announced the Yoga Tablet 3 and the Yoga Tablet 3 Pro tablets. The Yoga 3 comes in 8-inch and 10.1-inch variants, whereas the Yoga Tablet 3 Pro comes only in 10.1-inch. Let’s discuss the specifications real quick.

The Yoga Tablet 3 (8-inch) comes with an 8-inch display with a 1280 x 800p resolution, a quad-core 1.3GHz Qualcomm APQ8009 processor with 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM, an 8 mega-pixel rotatable camera with a 6200mAh battery. The device has two front facing speakers and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.


The Yoga Tablet 3 (10.1-inch) features a larger screen, but the same 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, and the same set of specifications as the 8-inch version save for the battery which gets an update to 8400mAh on this one.


Lastly, the Yoga Tablet 3 Pro has a 10.1-inch display with a much higher quad HD display (2560 x 1440p) with the quad-core Intel Atom x5-Z8500 processor and 2GB of RAM, 32GB on-board storage (expandable up to another 64GB). The Yoga Tablet 3 Pro gets standard cameras, i.e., no rotatable unit here. There’s a 13 mega-pixel shooter on the rear, and a 5 mega-pixel on the front.

What’s special about the Yoga Tablet 3 Pro is that it has a built-in 70-inch Pico Projector with a brightness of 50 nits and digital focus as well as gesture control.

This version also features the largest battery of the three in a 10200mAh cell, and doubles the number of speakers to four front facing ones.

The very entry-level Yoga Tablet 3 version in 8-inch and 10.1-inch are priced at US$169 and US$199, while the more powerful Yoga Tablet 3 Pro will go for US$499. All tablets go on sale in the US in November.
