Lenovo has reportedly revealed its new Yoga A12 Android tablet which conveys several of the design fundamentals and concepts behind the Yoga Book, but comes at a cheaper starting price. The company apparently impressed the tech world when it proclaimed last year an ultra-thin Windows 10 and Android tablet named the Yoga Book that put emphasis on new, pen-based interactions.
The Yoga A12 according to New Atlas, is a large Android-running tablet attached to a keyboard via a 360-degree hinge. The A12 features the same touch-based Halo keyboard as the Yoga Book, that has apparently a touchscreen, and a key-free interface. Accordingly, it is said that instead of pressing down physical buttons, the smooth, backlit keyboard nicely responds with a haptic feedback in the form of light vibrations.
The post further expounded that the Yoga A12 is a larger, more affordable version of the Lenovo Yoga Book, but apparently, the Halo keyboard does not include a digitizer for writing and drawing. It seemingly does not also have Lenovo's trademark watchband hinge, but nonetheless, the touch-typing experience it provides is delightful
According to Gadgets , the Lenovo Yoga A12 has some modest and mobile-friendly internals, including an Intel Atom x5 processor, a 12.2-in screen, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of built-in storage. It weighs in at under a kilogram, and accordingly will be available in Gunmetal Grey or Rose Gold colors..
Reportedly, the device is fitted with two speakers with Dolby Atmos feature, and it is also said that the Yoga A12 comes with hybrid UI with preloaded Google productivity suite apps. It is said to weigh less than a kilogram, and will be available in Gunmetal Grey or Rose Gold colors. The company claims that the device can easily accommodate up to 13 hours of battery life on a full charge.
