Today, Chinese manufacturer Lenovo announced an all new convertible tablet, running Android and going by the name of Yoga A12. At a first look, it seems to be a great deal, considering that it’s available for just $299!
The tablet is made of a combination of magnesium and aluminum, featuring a 12.2 anti-glare display, with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Of course, full HD would’ve been way better, but, at this price, is more than enough.
Measuring just 5.4mm in thickness and weighing a bit under 1kg, it’s incredibly portable. However, the biggest selling point of the Lenovo Yoga A12 is the Halo Keyboard, something we’ve already seen on last year’s Lenovo Yoga Book.
To be more specific, we’re talking about a flat, touch-sensitive virtual keyboard, with haptic feedback and integrated artificial learning software, alongside built-in prediction, connected to the device itself through a 360-degree hinge, resulting four various usage modes.
As for what’s under the hood, the Lenovo Yoga A12 comes with an Intel Atom x5 CPU, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, as well as dual speakers, relying on the Dolby Atmos technology, and a battery able to provide up to 13 hours of use, in a single charge, while the actual capacity isn’t mentioned. However, it’s more than enough to cover one day’s work.
Finally, the manufacturer doesn’t specify anything about the Android version the tablet comes with, but they’re mentioning something about a “multi-tasking hybrid UI”, with Google’s Productivity Suite integrated.
More details about the OS, as well as other features, will be unveiled on February 8, when the Lenovo Yoga A12 will be officially unveiled. As mentioned above, it will have a starting price of $299, on Lenovo’s online store, buyers being able to choose between Gunmetal Grey or Rose Gold.
