Lenovo’s releasing a new Android tablet, called the Yoga Pad Pro. This device boasts a 13-inch, 16:10 LCD screen with a 2K resolution, is powered by a Snapdragon 870 chipset and offers 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Keeping things ticking over is a 10,200mAh battery.
Why are we telling you this? Because Lenovo itself has chosen to highlight one of the really unique things about the Yoga Pad Pro – its Micro HDMI port – by showing it hosting Nintendo Switch games.
That's right – the Yoga Pad Pro's HDMI-in capability means that any device which offers HDMI output can be connected to the tablet, turning it into a handy portable monitor. While super-portable screens are hardly a new revelation, the fact that Lenovo's product combines this with a full-fat Android tablet is as noteworthy as the fact that the company is using Nintendo's console to promote it.
The Yoga Pad Pro hits store shelves in China for 3,299 yuan (approximately $517) on May 31st, but there's no word on a global release at present.
