Lenovo adds some firepower to its Yoga 10

Lenovo today announced an update to its poplar Yoga tablet family. The original Yoga tablets were announced back in October in 8” and 10” varieties. Both machines were decidedly at the “budget” end of the spectrum with dual-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7-based processors and a screen resolution of only 1280x800.
Lenovo is looking to right its previous wrongs with the new Yoga 10 HD+. The new 10” tablet ditches the 800p display for a Full HD (1920x1200) unit instead. Lenovo also bumped the processor specs by throwing in a 1.6GHz, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 2GB of RAM.

Lenovo provides 16GB or 32GB storage options, and a microSD slot can accommodate up to 64GB of additional storage.
Other features include 802.11n Wi-Fi, optional 3G wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, an 8MP rear camera, and a 1.6MP front camera. The Yoga 10 HD+ promises batter life of up to 18 hours thanks to its 9000 mAh battery. Interestingly, this is the same rated battery life as its predecessor despite the upgraded display and faster processor.

Lenovo is shipping the Yoga 10 HD+ with Android 4.3, but promises than an over-the-air update to Android 4.4 KitKat will be provided at a later date.
The Lenovo Yoga 10 HD+ will be available in April with prices starting at $349 for the 16GB model.
