Lenovo Caps off 2015 with its Year’s Biggest Launch
Kuala Lumpur (24 November 2015) — Lenovo today unveiled eighteen new transformative devices and accessories for every consumer’s computing, gaming and entertainment needs.
This is part of MyLENOVOtainment, which enables Lenovo to strategically encompass MyLENOVOMusic, MyLENOVOMovie and MyLENOVOGaming, as the technology leader continues to remain as the only company with the digital heritage and global reach to enhance user experiences while simplifying the complexity of digital entertainment. This is to facilitate every part of the value chain to deliver the products, content, services and industry partnerships to help consumers connect at every stage of their lifestyle.
Centered on Lenovo’s belief that life rewards those who ‘Never Stand Still’, Lenovo continues to elevate user experience and address all of their mobility needs through the use of unexpected technology. With the launch of these new products in Malaysia, Lenovo aims to appeal to the users of all interests – tech enthusiast, business mavens, gamers, and every day on-the-go multitaskers.
“Lenovo has seen a consistent demand not just for laptops and smartphones but also for tablets, multimodes and PCs. Because our customers are diverse, so our products are not ‘one size fits all’ either. The MyLENOVOtainment approach allows us to continue enhancing the lives of everyone. We are also known around the world for innovation, style and personal expression and have stayed true to this with our new range of products,” said Khoo Hung Chuan, Country General Manager, Lenovo Malaysia.
Users will be treated to an array of new products such as the Y Series for gaming, YOGA Series, ideacentres and ideapads, and the Lenovo PHAB Series along with gaming accessories and the Lenovo Pocket Projector.
YOGA 900 – As the world’s thinnest Intel Core i convertible laptop with up to Intel’s latest 6th generation Core i7 processor, the new Lenovo YOGA 900 is beautifully slim and feather light, yet amazingly powerful. The YOGA 900 provides flexibility with four usage modes (Laptop, Stand, Tent, Tablet), letting users work, watch or play in a variety of scenarios. Lenovo crafted the laptop with its recognizably different watchband hinge made of more than 800 intricately woven, individual pieces. The improved watchband hinge provides a noticeably smoother rotation – allowing users to flip and fold their YOGA 900 easily into different modes. The convertible laptop also takes full use of Windows 10 Continuum, allowing users to seamlessly move between laptop and tablet modes on their YOGA 900. It has 50 percent greater battery density (compared to the previous generation), allowing it to achieve up to nine hours of local video playback. From working through a long-haul flight in laptop mode to enjoying a movie marathon in stand mode to reading while commuting in tablet mode, the super-light YOGA 900 can flex into nearly any position to fit into users’ lives.
YOGA TAB 3 8” – The YOGA TAB 3 8” is the best go-anywhere video tablet with a long battery life and LTE support to let users stay connected anywhere, anytime. Both models are primed for video and multimedia applications and unparalleled portability, equipped with an HD (1,280 x 800) display, front-facing stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos sound, and yet weighing as little as 466g. Through the 180-degree rotating camera, users can unleash creative selfies and invigorating photos at previously unachievable angles and unique perspectives. Built-in gesture control also makes capturing the perfect shot easier than ever before. Simply open and close a hand to take a photo. With the highest-capacity battery in its class, these tablets also have a staggering all-day battery life.
YOGA TAB 3 Pro – The experience of watching Hollywood blockbusters, playing video games and browsing the Web is vastly improved on the YOGA TAB 3 Pro. The tablet flaunts a better optimized projector placement and is now 180-degree rotatable to beam life-sized images onto a wall or ceiling and project significantly brighter and cinematic pictures. At 299 pixels per inch, the onboard 10.1” QHD (2560×1600) screen is considerably sharper, and renders richer colours with its Smart Display technology.
Tablet users can immerse themselves in a cinematic sound without headphones through its powerful inbuilt JBL sound bar and Dolby Atmos technology – an industry first for tablets. To achieve even greater clarity and a louder output, the sound bar is also fitted with 4 front-facing speakers, which are fine-tuned with Wolfson Master Hi-Fi technology.
Sleek and exquisite, the YOGA TAB 3 Pro is carefully assembled with premium materials such as aluminum and a leather-like fabric back, while maintaining its ultra-slim design. Splash proof and perfectly balanced for an uncompromised holding experience, the tablet truly shines in a sea of tablets, given its versatility and long battery life to deliver all the power a user needs for all day use.
