Presented Android tablet with Halo keyboard: Lenovo Yoga A12

In the United States, Lenovo has the A12 Yoga officially presented. There is a 12.2-inch Android-Cabriolet, which reminds of the strong outside Lenovo yoga book.

Lenovo expands its portfolio and yoga brings the A12 Yoga a new Android tablet or convertible on the market. Known whose design with the unusual keyboard appears: For the latest IFA presented the outwardly indeed very similar Yoga book. In this new Android device but are not directly ramming Yoga book, although here again the Halo keyboard used.

But the plane keyboard chooses very well from book Yoga. There you can know through Kreativpad hide the keys and then work with a stylus on the surface, which is impossible with the A12 Yoga. No wonder Lenovo sees this device as the first of a whole new category of products.

We are dealing with an IPS screen of 12.2 inches, which with 1,280 x 800 pixels dissolves - so you actually get a larger panel than the 10-inch Yoga book, but at the same time, a lower resolution. This already shows that we are technically dealing with a more stripped-down model. Other features include:

1.   12.2 inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels
2.  Intel Atom x5-Z8550 quad-core SoC with up to 2.4GHz
3.  2 GB of RAM
4.  32 GB internal memory expandable via microSD card
5.   Android 6.0 Marshmallow
6.   HD Webcam
7.   WLAN 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS / GLONASS
8.   MicroUSB and a USB Type C connector, 3.5 mm headphone jack
9.   Stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support
10.   10.500 mAh battery life up to 15 hours battery life
11.  Dimensions: 228 x 208 x 10.9 mm
12.  1060 grams Weight

I have to say honestly, just after what has book Yoga to offer, the specifications seem pretty slim here. This is in addition to the resolution for tight memory and smaller flash memory, also the A12 yoga is also significantly heavier and thicker than the minimal at first sight Yoga so similar book.

With regard to weight, we want A12 yoga coated with metal, but limited charges - after all, it also has a much larger screen size. The battery is 15 hours persevere and Android comes here - unfortunately - in version 6.0 Marshmallow used. There is also not yet whether or when the update is scheduled on 7.0 Nougat information.

As usual with yoga equipment, you must not only wait for a decent finish, but also a versatile device through the screen. In the United States, the Yen A12 Lenovo will have in the coming days for $ 299, a term and the German price, we are still waiting. But you can assume that you will also be asked about 300 euros to pay.

For the money you get after all, a great, well made Android tablet with long battery life and keyboard, but you probably need to know if typing on this full keyboard layout works for you. As you can see from the pictures below, the game appears in the Gunmetal Gray and Rose Gold
