Lenovo Announces Yoga Duet 7i and IdeaPad Duet 3i

Remember when devices were designed to only do one thing, in one place, and for a single user? Not anymore. Our world is changing fast; with smarter technology more prevalent than ever in our daily lives, multitasking has increasingly become the norm. 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.

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. In this time of connectivity, Lenovo is committed to delivering on all fronts by providing more people with the accessible and multipurpose technology they will need to thrive.

Designed to help us all navigate a fully connected world, Lenovo propels its latest consumer lineup forward by introducing two LTE-supported, Windows 10 detachables including the portable Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i with its imaginative Lenovo E-Color Pen and the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3i with digital pen, making it a clear winner with students and multitaskers alike.

Another way to enjoy versatility and personal connection at home is with the upgraded Lenovo Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus (2nd Gen) with Alexa Built-in, which enables the popular hands-free ‘Show Mode’ experience from Alexa when docked and charging in its Smart Dock, with the added benefit of being a full-function Android tablet for when you don’t feel like staying put in one room.

Experience what’s next in performance and portability with the new Lenovo consumer devices coming to market.

Style-Meets-Substance
For a premium and portable device that truly does more without a lot of weight (1.16 kg/2.55 lbs counting its folio case) 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. And if detaching your keyboard and easily typing while it’s in your lap a few feet away from your screen wasn’t cool enough, the Yoga Duet 7i is compatible with Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+)2 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 the Alexa voice service and 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 with Intel Iris Plus graphics 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. Available in two sophisticated hues including Slate Grey and Orchid and sleek metal finish on its cover, it’s a head-turning, stylish device.

For easy note-taking and convenient creative expression, just lower the adjustable kickstand to a more comfortable angle to sketch and draw with your digital pen, or use the new optional, rechargeable Lenovo E-Color Pen. The new pen has a built-in smart sensor that lets you pick up colors from guides or any real-life object by simply touching the object’s surface with the pen’s tip while pressing down. Apply any captured color to your artwork created in popular design apps, such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator.

Get clearer sound with Dolby Audio, an amazing viewing experience with Dolby Vision, plus plenty of memory (up to 16 GB DDR4) and storage (up to 1 TB PCle SSD). The Yoga Duet 7i also offers up to 10.8 hours of battery life, optimized by artificial intelligence for up to an average of 20 percent extended battery life when balanced middle setting is enabled via our exclusive Lenovo Q-Control Intelligent Cooling feature.

Paired with the stylish Lenovo 13-inch Laptop Leather Sleeve to protect your device and keep your accessories like the chic and versatile Lenovo Yoga Mouse with Laser Presenter within easy reach. Now you’re ready to take on the day wherever it takes you.

Portable and Oh-So-Practical
A new 2-in-1 device with optional LTE-connectivity that deserves to go with you on staycation poolside is the multifunctional Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3i. Ultra-light at just 0.86 kg (under 2 lbs) including folio, its small size makes the IdeaPad Duet 3i ideal for students and go-getters who need a full-function PC but want to travel light without too many devices weighing them down.

Compatible with classroom essentials, Lenovo’s first-ever IdeaPad PC with a detachable Bluetooth (5.0) keyboard and folio kickstand supports Lenovo Digital Pen8 for seamless notetaking. Powered by Intel Pentium processors and Intel integrated graphics, the IdeaPad Duet 3i comes with Windows, Wi-Fi compatibility, and Dolby Audio for clearer sound without distortion.

With a sleek metal kickstand and remote working keyboard, choose from four usage modes throughout the day—tablet, notebook, tent or stand mode—to get more done quicker so you can sit back and relax as you stream shows on your up to 10.3-inch Full HD IPS panel display at 330 nits bright; without the need to hotspot from your phone when you go for the optional LTE model.

Available in a cool Graphite Grey hue, count on the smarter features of the IdeaPad Duet 3i to make hands-free communication easier with Cortana digital assistant plus dual 360-degree mics while the clever privacy shutter on the webcam helps to keep you safer from unwanted onlookers. A smart buy for those on the go, the IdeaPad Duet 3i has two USB-C ports for increased data-transfer speeds 15, solid memory (up to 8 GB), storage (up to 128 GB eMMC) and up to seven hours of battery life.

Best of Both Worlds
For over a year, households have enjoyed Alexa’s hands-free ‘Show Mode’ experience without the need for multiple devices by simply placing their full-function Lenovo Smart Tab into the complimentary Smart Dock to charge. You might ask, “Can it get any better?” Yes, it can. Lenovo took what customers loved about its original game-changing tablet created in collaboration with Amazon and made it even better; introducing the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus (2nd Gen) with Alexa Built-in.

By using customer insights to identify opportunities for improvement, 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 that complements nearly any home décor.

Designed to be portable and light at 460 grams (1lb), the technology inside the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 FHD Plus (2nd Gen) with Alexa Built-in 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.17

Easily and more securely log in to your tablet with the instant facial unlock feature with its integrated camera. Connect to friends and family members when you get cabin fever using the smarter ‘Drop In’ calling feature that serves as a modern two-way intercom, plus get even more advanced Alexa communication features such as messaging and voice/video calling between supported devices, at no additional cost.18

Another must-have for families staying at home is the enhanced Kid’s Mode that offers parental controls, dedicated kids’ content, and specialized eye protection features to reduce harmful blue light, plus ‘posture’ and ‘bumpy environment’ alerts to encourage a healthy viewing gesture when hand-holding the tablet.

When the tablet is hand-held, watching YouTube and playing games just got better with four-sided narrow bezel with up to 4.6 mm (0.18 inches) slim borders on each side, plus dual front-facing speakers tuned with Dolby Atmos for immersive sound.

Or go hands-free and see what’s new on Prime Video. The modern fabric covering on the Lenovo Smart Dock in new Graphite Grey hue is designed to look great even while charging on pogo pin connectors. You can also ask Alexa to tell you the latest news updates, show your calendar, search for recipes, control your home’s smart devices and listen to your favorite tunes with Amazon Music and watch as the lyrics flash across the screen—all with just your voice from across the room, thanks to three far-field mics.
