The model intends to be light, with 700 grams and very thin, with just 7.23 mm. It has a battery life of 15 hours and even has a pen as an option. The brand even emphasizes the quality of its OLED screen, with a contrast of 100,000:1 and 100% compatible with DCI-P3. It also reduces 70% less harmful light than other LCD models.
The Chromebook has four speakers, an 8 MP rear camera, and a 5 MP front camera. It also has two USB-C ports.
In the tablet family, Lenovo introduced the Tab P12 Pro (with wi-fi or 5G models) and the Tab P11 5G. The first model has a 12.6-inch AMOLED screen with a 120 Hz refresh rate and 600 nits of brightness.

The tablet is powered by a Snapdragon 870 processor, has up to 8GB of RAM and wi-fi 6 support. It’s just 5.63mm thick, weighs less than a kilogram, with the optional keyboard and pen. You can also opt for the tablet version with 5G. The tablet has a 7,700 mAh battery, with a capacity of 12 hours of video streaming and a 20 W fast charger. Both the wi-fi and 5G versions cost 899 euros and arrive in stores in October.
It will be released in October along with its new tablets, a pairing system that the company has called Project Unity for now. This is intended to be an alternative quick pairing system. For example, the tablet generates a PIN code, which you simply insert into the laptop, so that the devices are paired in seconds. You can then drag photos and other files from your computer to your tablet, for example. The company thus looks at productivity, expanding the screens in a practical and fast way. You can have a screen reading notes, another showing a video, for example. Or play a game on your computer and use your tablet to browse the internet.
The system will be pre-installed on Lenovo P12 tablets, but can then be downloaded on any Lenovo computer running Windows 10 and 11. The system promises to be an effective bridge between Android tablets and Windows computers.
