Lenovo’s new Yoga Book is an odd computer that straddles a previously non-existent line between laptop, tablet, and graphics slate.

The first Lenovo Yoga Book models feature 10 inch touchscreen displays, 360-degree hinges, and Wacom graphics tablets where you’d normally find a keyboard. But you can also press a portion of that pressure-sensitive surface to illuminate a virtual keyboard that you can use to type.

Lenovo is taking pre-orders for the 10 inch Windows and Android models… but soon there may be a 12 inch model for folks looking for something a little bigger.

When I spoke with Lenovo about the Yoga Book last month, I was told that the company plans to offer a whole range of products including models with larger displays. So it’s not surprising that Notebook Italia reports a Yoga Book 12 is on the way.

The evidence comes from a few sources, including the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, which has a recent listing for devices called the Lenovo YB-Q501L and YB-Q501F and Geekbench listings for those same models, describing the computers as YOGABOOK12 laptops with Android software and 4GB and 2GB of RAM, respectively.

According to Geekbench, both tablets feature Intel Atom x5-Z8550 processors and run Android 6.0.1 software, which suggests that the only real difference between these tablets and the 10 inch Yoga Book may be the screen size.

But I wouldn’t be surprised if Lenovo eventually launches models with faster processors, bigger screens, or other premium features. The company may be waiting to see what kind of response the smaller, cheaper models get before bringing those to market though.
