We recently saw it leak via Amazon where we got the skinny on nearly its entire feature set, but today Lenovo chose to formally announce the Yoga A12, a tablet/laptop-type hybrid that’s essentially a budget version of the company’s $499 Yoga Book. Why is it considered budget? It’s priced at just $299.
Well, that and a few other things, but that’s basically the gist of the whole thing.
Starting with the design, the Yoga A12 basically looks like the Yoga Book but without the watchband hinge. The same Halo Keyboard is present, however, on the bottom surface of the tablet, but it unfortunately doesn’t include pen input like the Yoga Book. Luckily, you do get a larger 12.2-inch display when picking up this model, even though it’s 720p and not 1080p.
The Yoga A12, at its thinnest point, is just 5.4mm thick, making it very easy to carry around in a bag or backpack likely filled with books or your laptop. Two speakers can be found on either side of the device which are powered by Dolby Atmos, while the entire thing can be flipped 360 degrees to get a more immersive tablet experience if desired.
Spec wise, the Yoga A12 features an Intel Atom x5 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, Android Marshmallow with Lenovo’s multitasking UI on top, and 13 hours of battery life. This is considerably a lot less power than that of the Yoga Book, but you’re getting this device for much cheaper, an excusable condition.
Lenovo will sell the Yoga A12 tablet for $299 starting February 8th at Lenovo.com. It’ll be available in Gunmetal Grey or Rose Gold.
