Lenovo Patents Foldable Display Device With Physical Keyboard

By Radu Iorga

Lenovo is no stranger to foldable and flexible devices. Actually they played around with one as early as 2016, back when the Microsoft Surface Phone was just a dream in a foldable form and ZTE Axon M also didn’t exist. Now Oppo, Huawei and basically everyone is making such machines. Turns out Lenovo is also back on it, patenting a foldable display device with a physical keyboard.

It’s rather odd to hear about such a contraption, a device that’s able to both fold and allow for physical key input, but it’s happening. The novelty here is that Lenovo is trying to change the paradigm and replace the hinge with something else. That “something else” is a flexible piece of material in this case, that connects the keyboard and screen.

The patent is closer to a convertible laptop rather than your average foldable phone, to be frank. The two halves are connected via a second foldable screen panel. That leaves less room for breakage and damage that would happen to a regular hinged device. The fold feels similar to what the Microsoft Surface Book is doing and it’ll create a gap between the two halves of the device, so it won’t sit perfectly flat.

The foldable portion between the parts also shows stuff like notifications, battery data and more, like a second screen would. I have a serious gut feeling this is going to end up as a Lenovo Yoga Book 3 of some sort, but with a smaller format.

CES 2019: Lenovo Debuts Smart Tab M10, Tab P10 Tablets, Working as Alexa Speakers

By James A.

Lenovo is blurring the line between tablet and smart speaker further with the release of two new devices at CES 2019. They’re the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 and Smart Tab P10. They will go for preorder this month priced at $200 and $300 respectively.

Both devices come bundled with a Smart Dock, that features stereo 3 watt speakers and 3 microphones with far field voice detection. Both tablets have 10.1 inch 1920 x 1200 pixel displays and rely on the Snapdragon 450 octa core CPU. Lenovo Smart Tab P10 has a 400 nit display, up to 4 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB of storage, but you can add more via microSD.

The battery is a 7000 mAh unit and we also have a main 8 MP camera and front 5 MP shooter. Lenovo Smart Tab M10 comes with a 320 nit display, up to 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, plus microSD and a 4850 mAh battery. There’s a main 5 MP camera and front 2 MP shooter. Both units come with USB Type-C 2.0 ports and 3.5 mm audio jacks, as well as pogo pins to connect to the dock.

The P10 also throws in a fingerprint reader. The two also have in common Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi support. Alexa is obviously in the mix and this can make great counter top companions in the kitchen.

Lenovo Debuts ThinkPad L390 and L390 Yoga: Versatile Laptops for Business Users

By Radu Iorga

Lenovo just unveiled new laptops within the ThinkPad L-Series, the L390 and L390 Yoga models. Both laptops are expected to pass the Mil-Specs (military specifications) test and they’re destined for business users and people who “work in the field”.

L390 is a follow-up to the appreciated ThinkPad L380 and it starts at $659, while the Yoga version starts at $889. Both units can be configured with 32 GB of RAM and 512 GB of SSD storage. The CPU options go up to an Intel Core i7 7th gen and there’s also at least a Core i5 version. The ThinkPad L390 is a 3.2 pound notebook, that uses a 13.3 inch Full HD touchscreen display, with a 180 degree hinge.

The L390 Yoga is a 3.5 pound convertible with pen support and a 360 degree hinge. They have Whiskey Lake CPUs inside, which should offer a small boost compared to the Kaby Lake-R chips, while also supporting Gigabit WiFi. Both units are expected to come this month, being available in stores already.

 

Both models have USB Type-C ports, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, HDMI 1.4 ports and mini Ethernet ones, as well as a microSD card slot. Both pack 45 Whr batteries, even though Lenovo estimates that you’ll get up to 2 hours longer battery life for the non convertible model. Color versions are black and silver. The convertible one has the Lenovo Active Pen, that gets a special slot in the computer, when it’s not being used.

Today’s First Video Worth Sharing: Lenovo Z5 Pro Release Reinforces The Trend Toward Sliders

By Tim

Another attempt to ditch the notch via the slider! The Lenovo Z5 Pro has decent specs, a claimed huge 95% screen to body ratio and of course the same slider type mechanism as the Honor Magic 2 and the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3. The biggest difference is the cost and that can be attributed to the Snapdragon 710, while the Mi Mix 3 sports the Snapdragon 845 and the Magic 2 has a Kirin 980 7nm SoC.

Below are all the links to any video or pages mentioned in this video!
