Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Specs Leak Out: 13.3-Inch Screen, 3200 x 1800 Res, Intel Core M

Not so long ago, at the Intel Developer Forum, the chip giant talked about the first upcoming tablets and laptops to arrive bundling the Intel Core M platform, among which we could find the ASUS Zenbook UX305, Lenovo ThinkPad Helix 2 and HP Envy x2 Duo to name just a few.

But we saw no trace of Lenovo’s upcoming Yoga 3 Pro convertible which surfaced online not so long ago. Granted, the products Intel talked about at IDF are expected to make it to retail before Christmas, whereas the next-gen Yoga Pro might arrive in shops a little bit later on. Anyway, we already know the Yoga 3 Pro will be powered by an Intel Core M-5Y70 chip, but apart from that the specs of the 2-in-1 remain a mystery.

The veil lifts off most specs of the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro

Well, now a user on Reddit posted what appears to be a more complete list for the Yoga 3 Pro. Furthermore, the folks of Mobile Geeks stumbled upon the device in a few retail listings confirming the specs revealed by the former. So here’s what we can expect the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro to bring to the table. The 2-in-1 will take advantage of a 13.3-inch display of the IPS variety and will boast 3200 x 1800 pixel resolution, which is exactly what the Yoga 2 Pro offered. In the computing department, pulling the strings is an Intel Core M 5Y70 processor working with Intel HD 5300 graphics and fitted with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of solid state storage.

The machine’s life source is a 44.8 Whr battery which should grant users 7 hours of work time on a single charge. This is not bad, considering that the laptop takes advantage of a powerful, large display. Apart from that, the Yoga 3 Pro should also bundle 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, HDMI out, stereo speakers, 720p webcam and dual microphones. The system will have a backlit keyboard and will be offered in multiple colors including the traditional orange of the Yoga Pro line but also in gold.

Sorry, no Windows 9 on board

Those of you who were hoping to see Windows 9 come pre-installed on the device, we hate to burst your bubble, but it appears the convertible will take advantage of good-old Windows 8.1 64-bit. Well, at least Lenovo bumped things up in the processor department, right? Anyway, the retail listings show the Yoga 3 Pro with 512GB of internal memory is due to sell for €1,599 / $2,051. When it is available for purchase, we don’t know.
