The sequel to the Yoga Tablet 8 from Lenovo has just been announced in preparation for this week’s MWC 2014 event – ladies and gents, allow me to introduce the Lenovo Yoga Tablet HD+. The overall design remains consistent with Lenovo’s signature Yoga design philosophy, offering a larger version of its predecessor with a full HD 10.1″ inch display that can be used in three different usage modes with its unique swivel centrifuge design.
The main differentiating factor with this new revised HD+ model, is the 10.1″ full HD 1920 x 1080 display – a significant leap in size and resolution compared to the 8″ inch 1280 x 800 Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8. In terms of processor, Lenovo notes a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad core at 1.6GHz, which would appear to be a Snapdragon 400 series SoC featuring Adreno 305 graphics.
Lenovo Yoga Tablet 10 HD+ Specifications:
• 10.1” Full HD (1920×1080) wide-view display
• Weighing 1.35lb and only 3-8.1mm thin
• Adaptive display automatically adjusts to ambient light

Equipped initially with Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) upgrading to Android 4.4 (Kit Kat), the Yoga Tablet HD+ also features automatic adaptive display technology to automatically adjust to ambient light.
You’re also getting a 8MP HD camera – bumped up from 5MP on the Yoga Tablet 8 – with a1.6MP front facing cam. The battery life is a pretty impressive 18 hour according to Lenovo, as the device is powered by a substantial 9000mAh battery.
The device is expected to hit stores for around $349. Optional keyboard and cover also available. This certainly something we are looking forward to getting hands on with later this week. Stay tuned for video footage as we get it.
