Lenovo may be preparing to launch a next-generation Yoga tablet. A listing for an unannounced Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro showed up at the Indonesian equivalent of the FCC recently.

The site also mentions another unannounced device, called the Lenovo ThinkPad X250.

Aside from the fact that the Yoga 3 Pro is described as a “laptop PC,” there’s not much we know about it at this point. But Lenovo’s Yoga line of laptops are actually convertible 2-in-1 devices that also work as tablets. Just push the touchscreen screen back 360 degrees until it’s back-to-back with the keyboard and you’ve got a kind of heavy Windows tablet.

The new model would likely replace the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro which features a 13.3 inch 3200 x 1800 pixel display, an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 Haswell CPU, Intel HD 4400 graphics, and up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB to 512GB of solid state storage.

It’s not clear what new features a Yoga 3 Pro would have, but a faster processor is a possibility. Perhaps this model will ship along with Intel’s next-gen processors, code-named “Broadwell.”

The Lenovo ThinkPad X250, meanwhile, it likely an updated version of the ThinkPad X240 which is a 12.5 inch ultrabook.

  1. I hope they put a digitizer with it as they should have with the Yoga 2 Pro. Only thing missing in the perfect hybrid. C’mon, Lenovo, get it RIGHT this time.

  2. Yoga Pro 3 wishlist:

    1. 15 inches display option
    2. Under 3 pounds
    3. Half the thickness of Yoga Pro 2
    4. Detachable display i.e. full tablet form
    5. Windows 9

    Take my $$$ !

    1. #1 and #4 would effectively make an an extremely niche product and cripple potential sales, I would think. Very little market for a massive 15in tablet. And half the Yoga Pro 2’s thickness, an ultrabook that was already pretty thin, would be a very tall order from an engineering standpoint.

      I’d settle for refinements to the Y2 design myself; nix all the mechanical drives from all Y3 skus. Every one should come with an SSD, no exceptions. If RAM and SSD’s aren’t going to user upgradeable like the Y2 series, then sku’s need to be available to purchase at reasonable prices for 8/16GB RAM and 256/512+ SSD options. No more blacklisting certain wifi modules either.

  3. The mainreson to by yoga 2 is the screenresolution, if you edit video it is great to have that much space.

  4. Hey Brad, any idea when we can expect Broadwell to ship? I thought it was delayed?

  5. I hope the Lenovo Yoga Pro 3 has a better battery and is a bit slimmer. That was all that was stopping me from buying the Yoga Pro 2.

      1. Can Broadwell do that for real laptops? Or are fanless CPU’s just for tablets?

        1. Yes, Y 3 Pro – fanless, <1kg, absolutly new hinges, extreme! slim / Core M

    1. And also drop the screen resolution a bit, as the current resolution is too high to run some software properly, and is too much of a overkill and is not needed

      1. One can also easily run at 1600×900 on a 3200×1800 screen, for those apps.

        Although overkill for lots of tasks, and kills the framerate of many games/apps, the 3200×1800 resolution is very lovely for reading text — once you’re used to “Retina” displays. Many websites work very well on Retina displays, having been optimized for the iDevices.

        I do my work in Windows, but I’ve noticed the problem is even Windows 8.x doesn’t always seamlessly handle “Retina” displays as well as Macs do.

    2. U forget about yellow color problem and wifi problems? Thats stopping me from buying yoga 2 pro… not stupid battery or weight etc…
