MANILA, Philippines – November 28, 2014: Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) ups the ante on its popular Yoga Series and introduces the new Lenovo Y50, all of which bring more productivity, flexibility, and connectivity to users.
“Lenovo’s new Yoga line-up features thin designs and robust processors with four modes for amazing portability and performance when playing and working with digital content. Equipped with unparalleled audio capabilities and long battery life, the new Yoga multi-modes as well as the new Lenovo Y50 being launched today reflect Lenovo’s commitment to innovation, paving a new way for doers to accomplish more in today’s mobile-focused digital era,” said Michael Ngan, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines.
Yoga Tablet 2: Four Modes for Intuitive Usage
Available in 8-inch and 10-in Android variants, the Yoga Tablet 2 users can enjoy the three original modes – Hold, Tilt and Stand – and discover a fourth mode – Hang. This mode allows them to hang the Yoga when viewing content, freeing up their hands to do other tasks. Lenovo has also improved the kickstand in Stand mode for more stability when pressing the 10-point multi-touch screen.
In addition to the tablet’s responsive design, Lenovo has upgraded the Yoga Table 2 to Intel® Atom™ processor, Dolby® Audio, and Wolfson® Master Hi-Fi™. It also has dual front speakers and an 8 MP rear camera. Yoga Tablet 2 sports better connectivity, with dual band Wi-Fi and a micro USB with OTG connection that allows users to charge their phones with a separate cable on the go.
Yoga Tablet 2 Pro: A New Way to Watch and Listen
Developed by Lenovo’s product engineer, Ashton Kutcher, the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro gives consumers a new way to reach, watch, connect and create. Its superior resolution (2560 x 1440) and long-life 9600-mAh battery and built-in Pico projector makes it the ultimate home entertainment tablet to add to anyone’s wish list. The 8-watt JBL sound system with subwoofer gives an immersive sound experience.
Like the Yoga Tablet 2, Yoga Tablet 2 Pro also features four modes – the Yoga Tablet’s three original modes, Hold, Tilt, and Stand – and the Hang mode, which allows users to hang the tablet anywhere they want.
Yoga 3 Pro: Redefining Thin and Light
The new Yoga 3 Pro pushes the boundary on thinness and lightness. It is thinner by 17 percent as compared to the Yoga 2 Pro, 14 percent slimmer than its predecessor at just 12.8 mm and it weighs 1.19 kg. With a new watchband hinge made from 800 pieces of steel and aluminum, the Yoga 3 Pro is as flexible as a metallic watch band, with six focus points instead of two.
Complementing the distinctive new hinge design, the Yoga 3 Pro is available in two eye-catching colors: Platinum Silver or Champagne Gold.
Lenovo Y50 for Cutting Edge Performance
The Lenovo Y50 laptop offers advanced technology, which includes an optional backlit keyboard, and NVIDIA® GeForce®, for enhanced graphics. Powered by an up to 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Windows 8.1, and HDD, users can easily multitask among activities such as watching videos, opening apps, posting to social media and browsing photos. The powerful combination of JBL® speakers and Dolby® Home Theatre® v4 helps to redefine the multimedia experience with its crisp and resonant sound.
