Lenovo has announced new products in its Yoga, Flex and Vibe lines, with a new tablet also shown, at IFA.
The Yoga 2 Pro, successor to Lenovo’s 13.3-inch Yoga device, which rotates by 360-degrees, joins the also-announced ThinkPad Yoga, which adopts the flip-and-fold design hallmark of the range, but is largely aimed at business users.
Three models expand Lenovo’s Flex line. The new 14.1 and 15.1-inch Flex laptops flip 300-degrees in order to stand upright for easier use of the touchscreen. Voice commands are also supported.
The Flex 20 also transforms from stand to table mode, propping up a 19.5-inch frameless 1600×900 display. Inside the Flex 20 can sit an Intel i7 processor and 500GB of solid-state storage. When flat, the device uses Lenovo’s Aura interface, carried across from Lenovo’s Horizon Table PC.
For the smartphone market, Lenovo offers the Android-powered Vibe X, a five-inch phone with a 1920×1080 resolution, twin cameras and a quad-core 1.5Ghz processor. The existing Lenovo K900 smartphone gains two new colour options; black or orange, in 16GB or 32GB versions.
Rounding out Lenovo’s new products is the S5000 tablet. At 7.9mm, Lenovo claims the S5000 is “one of the slimmest tablets in the market.” Its screen measures in at seven inches, with a resolution of 1280×800 and 350 nit brightness. Like the Vibe X, the S5000 runs on Android 4.2 (Jellybean). For mobile connectivity, the S5000 includes HSPA+ 3G support.
