Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro works both as a tablet and as a monitor. Lenovo’s new Android tablet, Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro, can also function as an external monitor. According to the news from Gizmochina, Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro will go on sale in China from May 31 with a price tag of 3,299 yuan.
Getting most commercially available tablets to work as a second monitor isn’t difficult, but you’re usually limited to using them with certain devices. For example, Apple’s iPads can be used as external displays thanks to the built-in Sidecar feature, but this will only work if you use them with a Mac. However, thanks to some paid third-party applications such as Duet Display, it is possible to use the iPad as a second monitor for Windows PCs.
however, the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro has a built-in full micro HDMI port in the handle. So you can basically connect any HDMI device to it and the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro as a 13 inch monitor.
If we look at the usage side as a tablet, Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro; Snapdragon 870 includes features such as 8 GB RAM, 256 GB storage and 10200 mAh battery. The 2K has four Dolby Atmos compatible speakers arranged around the 16:10 LCD screen and also has a stand that can rotate 180 degrees from the back of the unit. Thanks to this 180 degree stand, it is also possible to hang the tablet on the wall.
Of course, there are many portable monitors that are often offered with larger screen sizes and lower price tags. But the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro has the advantage of being a capable stand-alone device in its own right, complete with stylus support and an 8-megapixel selfie camera (no rear camera).
It is unclear whether the Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro will go on sale outside of China. However, this product will be very useful for those who often watch something with their tablet or want to use it as a second screen on their computer.
