Last year Lenovo introduced a 13 inch Windows tablet called the Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i which featured a 10th-gen Intel Comet Lake processor and support for a detachable keyboard. Now the company is launching an updated model packing an 11tth-gen Intel Tiger Lake processor.

It’s called the Lenovo Yoga Duet 2021 and it goes on sale in China April 30 with prices starting at 6499 CNY ($1000). There’s no word on if or when this model will be available internationally, but since the first-gen model made it to the US, I suspect the new one could as well.

For the most part, the 2021 model looks just like its predecessor. Both tablets feature 13 inch, 2160 x 1350 pixel IPS displays with 16:10 aspect ratios, 100-percent sRGB color gamut, and support for up to 450 nits of brightness.

And both this year’s model and last year’s are 11.7″ x 8.1″ x 0.36″ tablets that weigh about 1.76 pounds, feature a built-in kickstand, and support for optional accessories including a detachable keyboard and a pressure-sensitive pen.

But thanks to the upgrade from an intel Comet Lake processor with Intel UHD graphics to a newer Intel Tiger Lake chip with Intel Iris Xe graphics, Lenovo’s Yoga Duet 2021 should offer a big boost in CPU performance and an even bigger bump in graphics performance.

The new tablet also has a Thunderbolt 4 port, which last year’s model lacked.

  1. Oh wow, if this has active cooling and eGPU support… You could print some JoyCon rails and make a decent little gaming device out of this thing.

    1. I was thinking the exact opposite. I will not buy a computer without passive cooling. But if it is fanless, this has my attention.
