Processor: Qualcomm APQ8009 (1.10GHz)

Operating system: ANDROID 5.1

Display: 8.0″ or 10″ LCD IPS Multi-touch (1280×800)

Both offer the “AnyPen Technology” which allows you to use any conductive object (a regular pen could work) as a stylus.

For the price:

This year though there’s no 13″ model but a Pro model in town.

Meet the Yoga 3 Tab Pro

lenovo-yoga-tablet-3-pro-10-inch-front-detail-8This particular model seems to be a “mini” version of the Yoga 3 Pro from last year and a powerful variant of the 10″ regular model of this year with some big differences, but look for yourself:

Processor: Intel Atom x5-Z8500 processor

Operating system: ANDROID 5.1

Display: 10″ QHD (2560×1600) LCD IPS Multi-touch screen

RAM: 2GB

Hard Drive: 16GB (MicroSD expandable up to 128GB)

Body: IP21 splash proof  Certified

Battery: 10200 mAh battery (Up to 18 hours)

Camera: 13MP rear facing camera and 5MP front facing camera

Weight: 1.47lbs

Speakers: Front-facing soundbar with 4 premium JBL® speakers and Dolby Atmos® audio enhancement

Ports:  Micro-USB and audio jack

As you can see there’s no rotating camera in this model, but that’s because with this Pro version you’ll get a “Pico Projector” powerful enough to create a 70-inch screen wherever you want.

See it in action:

The price point of this model is of course higher than the normal 10″ version, if you really want to 70″ screen on your room you will need to pay $499.

All three tablet will be available later this year,being dates:

October 1st for the Tab 3 8″

November 1st for Tab 3 10″ and Tab 3 Pro
