While at home the past year, many have turned to their tablets for streaming, gaming, learning and more screen time. As the lines separating our relaxation time from hours spent working or learning start to blur, Lenovo is helping consumers rediscover their happy place with mobile experiences that make adapting to today’s new hybrid lifestyle much easier.
Introducing smarter devices capable of restoring the balance with strong multi-purpose performance: the new expertly-crafted Lenovo Yoga Tab 13 and its family-friendly sibling, the new Lenovo Yoga Tab 11, the powerful Lenovo Tab P11 Plus Android tablet, and the Lenovo Smart Clock 2 that’s optimized to transform your day by simplifying your nightstand.
Home Entertainment Just Got Better – Yoga Tab 13 and Yoga Tab 11
The new premium tablet from Lenovo , the Yoga Tab 13 is practically a portable home-cinema. Use its large mobile display to jumpstart new hobbies, perhaps you’ve been wanting to learn to bake: all you need are the right ingredients, and time to watch a couple of how-to videos on a tablet that’s designed to work virtually anywhere – on the kitchen counter, gripped in your hands, or hanging from a pot rack thanks to its new stainless steel kickstand.
Coated in an anti-fingerprint coating, the kickstand doubles as a sturdy hanger and its innovative rolled edge design enables multiple modes and angled positions for truly hands-free viewing, from any room. Prop it on its base in landscape mode and watch shows in the bedroom, hang from a door hook to glance, or just tilt to type, write, and draw with the optional Lenovo Precision Pen 2. The tablet’s hands-free offerings extend to smarter log-in via its front 8MP camera for superb video calling with background noise reduction.
Lenovo caters its Yoga products to the distinct needs of trendsetters and go-getters, and as our sub-brand’s name implies, its portfolio provides substance, flexibility, and standout style. The Yoga Tab 13’s Shadow Black exterior is covered in Alcantara, the innovative soft-touch material made in Italy for a unique and luxurious touch – it’s no wonder Lenovo’s team of engineers and designers recently received a prestigious Red Dot Award for the Yoga Tab 13 and its winning design excellence. Alcantara brings more than just an upgraded style and sensory experience. Since 2009, it has been certified ‘Carbon Neutral’ by TÜV SÜD illustrating its commitment to sustainability and making the brand an icon of contemporary lifestyle.
The Yoga Tab 13 offers great entertainment features for all-day streaming of up to 12 hours in remarkable clarity (1080p). More power-efficient and less reflective than other LCDs, its large 13-inch 2K LTPS (Low Temperature Poly-Silicon) display offers 400 nits of brightness and 100 percent sRGB colour gamut. The panel is also powered by Dolby Vision HDR, which delivers incredible detail along with ultravivid picture quality. Enjoy spectacular audio with quad JBL speakers including the two built into its innovative soundbar; Lenovo Premium Audio tuning and Dolby Atmos combine for a more immersive audio experience. Plus, a bottom audio chamber helps achieve up to 450Hz bass performance for a strong audio effect you can feel. Streaming Netflix shows never sounded so good!
This tablet doesn’t just run entertainment apps, it can also augment work. Say you want to see more content at once using double screens – you can use it as a super portable secondary display while connected to your laptop via its included micro-HDMI to USB cable.
This tablet comes certified for fast Wi-Fi 6, and is supported by the performance efficiency of an octa-core processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 Mobile Platform which delivers powerful graphics and 8GB LPDDR5 of memory – making it more than capable of downloading and running high performance gaming titles in high-resolution, high speed, and low-latency for commanding gameplay that rocks, even from the backyard.
Included in Lenovo’s latest Android tablets is the debut of Entertainment Space from Google, a new home for the entertainment goodness from all your free and paid services that you can’t live without. And for the ultimate smart home hub experience, ask Google Assistant to play your favorite tunes with just your voice via the tablet’s dual mics.
Lenovo also created the new, more accessible Yoga Tab 11 that can be shared by the whole family. Go with the flow as you move room to room enjoying everyone’s favorite content on a family-friendly tablet that’s certified by TÜV Rheinland for greater eye protection to help reduce harmful blue light. Simply select the tablet’s Eye Care Mode to automatically adjust white balance and colour tone for optimal vision comfort.
Ideal for home entertainment and learning from home with pen support, the Yoga Tab 11 has an optional LTE variant and comes loaded with many of the same entertainment and light productivity features as its sibling above. It’s built on the fast and powerful MediaTek Helio G90T octa-core processor with UFS-based memory chip for superior video watching, plus lightning-fast for games, apps and browsing so you accomplish more in less time online. Check out Google Kids Space, a kids mode that helps children discover, create and grow with a library of quality content (and Family Link parental controls). Channel your inner artist when doodling with the optional Lenovo Precision Pen 2 in tilt mode. With an 11-inch 2K IPS TDDI (Touch Display Driver Integration) display and Dolby Vision ultravivid picture quality, this sleek tablet is offered in a soft-touch, high tenacity Storm Grey fabric for extra durability and heat resistance. Its stainless steel kickstand can be adjusted to enable hang mode.

Time Is On Your Side (Table) – Lenovo Smart Clock 2
The new Lenovo Smart Clock 2 takes nightstands by storm (sans prying camera for visual privacy) and offers other optimized extras, such as, an optional wireless phone charger that snaps into place while docked11 to provide a soft ambient nightlight on the clock’s base.
Built for the bedroom, or wherever you need a clock that does it all, the Lenovo Smart Clock 2’s updated design, seamless tubing, and compact footprint blends in with nearly any home décor. Its fabric soft-touch, organic-looking exterior is offered in three fashionable yet neutral hues: Shadow Black, Heather Grey and Abyss Blue.

Make way for better dreams by choosing one of the updated clock’s darker design interfaces and its new ‘screen off’ option; pick your ideal smart alarm setting as part of a great morning.
