CES 2018: Lenovo unveils ThinkPad X1 Tablet, X1 Carbon, X1 Yoga

It's a professional notebook that aims to blend ThinkPad's legacy with all new Intel 8 gen Core processors. There are a few HDR standards out there, but Dolby Vision has the particularity of having dynamic metadata, which means that it can best adapt to a specific movie frame or scene. Lenovo has bumped the processors on the devices to 8th-generation Intel Kaby Lake apart from adding universal USB Type-C charging.

It also offers the same far-field 360-degree microphones and Alexa tricks, ThinkShutter feature (and an option on an IR camera, for facial recognition login), fingerprint reader, LTE-A support and up to 15 hours of battery life.

At CES 2018, Lenovo has announced several new products, including additions to its ThinkPad X1 series, including the world's first laptops with Dolby Vision HDR support.

Tested to survive water, extreme heat and ice7, the latest ThinkPad X1 Carbon merges beauty and legendary durability to create a laptop packed with distinctive engineering. The company has announced refreshed notebooks with new Carbon, Tablet, and Yoga models as well as a newly updated ThinkVision X1 monitor.

Literally, the only difference between the X1 Carbon and Yoga is in the form factor department. Users can add more space to the device by adding a microSD card. The 360 hinge of the ThinkPad X1 Yoga allows you to flip screen to use the convertible in various orientations including tent, tablet, and laptop. It also includes an IR camera on top of the already existing fingerprint reader for Windows Hello.

Getting a solid 2-in-1 experience doesn't cost users the great features that are available in the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. The Lenovo X1 Yoga starts at $1,889 (roughly Rs. 1,19,800).

Now, if talk about the features then we can say that these laptops are offering the 8th Gen Intel Core processor, optional multi-touch displays, and docking solutions. They will all be available later this month.

The new ThinkPad X1 Tablet will start at $1,599 (around £1,180, AU$2,040), with the X1 Carbon weighing in at $1,709 (around £1,260, AU$2,180), and the X1 Yoga starting at $1,889 (around £1,395, AU$2,410). While the RAM is the same as the other two devices, the storage capacity is up to 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD. The optional Lenovo Pen Pro supports 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and provides a natural and responsive writing experience with tilt-to-shade function and up to 26 days of battery life on a full charge. The updated 27-inch UHD display features a thin 4.7mm profile and "near borderless" bezels on all the four sides. With a Thunderbolt 3 port it is possible to drive it with over 99% sRGB 10-bit color gamut on a single cable and it features a Motor-Camera system with dual-array microphones that will raise and lower as needed.

The Miix 630 will be available at the beginning of Q2 2018 at a starting price of $799.99. Both the devices will go on sale in late January this year.
