Lenovo propels its latest consumer lineup forward by introducing two LTE-supported, Windows 10 detachables including the portable Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i with its Lenovo E-Color Pen and the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3i1 with digital pen.

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.

Featuring up to 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processors and Windows 10, the Yoga Duet 7i offers a combination of intelligent performance, connectivity, and entertainment.

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.

This newly designed tablet is easier to set up and sports a more expansive 10.3-inch Full HD IPS screen, a more powerful mobile processor, and a Platinum Grey metal back cover.
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.

In addition, the enhanced Kid’s Mode 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.
