IFA 2019: Lenovo's new Yoga tablet can transform into a smart display at will

It's hard to do something different with Android tablets but you can't say Lenovo aren't trying.

The newly-announced Lenovo Yoga Smart Tab features a 10.0-inch FHD+ IPS display and a unique kickstand built into the side-mounted handle. In line with the Yoga brand, the Smart Tablet has a hevy of featured geared towards content consumption.

If you're the kind of person who wants to watch a lot of video content on the Smart Tab, there's a set of JBL-made hi-fi speakers built into the tablet. These are backed up by a set of smart power amplifiers that themselves are optimized with Dolby Atmos in mind. 

Then, when not in use, you can even kick it into ambient mode - allowing it to function more or less how a Lenovo Smart Display or Google Home Hub does.  The Lenovo Smart Tab boasts three digital mic arrays and 360-degree far-field voice recognition for more reliable voice commands.

In Australia, the Lenovo Yoga Smart Tab will be available in October. Local pricing is TBD.
