Lenovo today at Computex in Taipei unveiled the
second-generation Yoga Book with improved technology. Lenovo
Yoga Book 2 was briefly displayed, and the company hasn’t
yet detailed the hardware and design changes. The laptop is
expected to hit the stores later this year, and it’ll be
powered by Intel’s latest processor.
Back in 2016, the PC maker Lenovo unveiled the first Yoga Book
with dual-screen, and it was more than your typical convertible
device. The laptop featured a digital keyboard, which was
entirely a touch panel and completely flat. Lenovo replaced the
traditional mechanical keyboard with a pressure-sensitive touch
keyboard dubbed “Create Pad”. The Halo keyboard also had
backlit technology with haptic feedback.
Lenovo Yoga Book 2 also features dual-display panels with touch
support. It has a virtual keyboard, so you can type on it and
draw with a stylus.
The company has worked hard to integrate an enhanced inking
experience, and it’s likely that Lenovo will be also bundling
the Pen (stylus) for creativity.
By the looks of things, Lenovo Yoga Book 2 will be powered by a
‘higher performance Intel CPU’, which could be the Whiskey
Lake U series and Amber Lake Y series of processors. Both of
the processors are thin and designed to run fanless.
As we only got a brief sneak peek at the second generation Yoga
Book, the other details such as screen size, chipset, and
everything else is still unknown.
Two new Lenovo devices, namely Lenovo Pen
Pro and YogaBook2 Pro also appeared on Bluetooth
SIG website last week, confirming that the Yoga Book 2 is in
Lenovo offered the first-generation Yoga Book in both Android
and Windows 10 flavours. The original model had a 10-inch
touchscreen display, Intel Atom processor, coupled up with 4GB
The original model with Windows 10 retailed for $650, and the
company later released a budget-friendly version for $299, so
we’d expect similar pricing this year.
Interestingly, Lenovo is also working on Yoga Book 3 and
it’ll be unveiled next year. Would you be interested in a
