Lenovo has been offering convertible Windows-powered tablets for the past years but that may soon change. According to recent leaks, the company may be releasing a Lenovo Yoga Book 2 variant that runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow – the first of its kind.


Lenovo’s Yoga notebook lineup has been well known for their multiple usage features and Windows OS. However, this time, the company appears to be experimenting on a new Yoga convertible that will run on Android OS.

While Lenovo has not put out the official word, Android Headlines reports that website Red Dot Design Award put up a brief explanation of the convertible. The notebook will feature a 2-in-1 design that comes with a 3-axis hinge allowing users to flip the screen 360 degrees around the axis.

The new convertible is different from other Yoga notebooks because it takes on Lenovo’s proprietary self-flattening keyboard design to avoid unnecessary key strokes for modes besides “laptop.” The leak also reveals that the notebook can last up to 15 hours. It features an Intel Atom X5-Z8500 Cherry Trail CPU, 4 GB of RAM, a 10-inch display, 32GB internal memory, 1920 x 1200 resolution and only 9.6 mm of thickness.

Likewise, the Yoga notebook is not the only thing that’s keeping the company busy. According to reports, the company may have a hand in the release of the Moto X3. According to Android Central, the release should be happening as Indian import-export website Zauba already listed the device. As Lenovo is trying to reorganize its mobile division, it is possible that the Moto X3 will be its first venture specifically with the “Moto by Lenovo” branding. However, there aren’t many details about the release yet. All information must be taken with a grain of salt.
