Lenovo has been teasing a new Yoga tablet on Weibo for the past few days. According to the official profile, it will come with reinvented stand mechanism and will have HDMI support, acting as a screen for gaming consoles.

The new stand will not be a plaque, but more like sticks from reinforced metal that would allow the tablet to stay upwards, to hang above the stove (when the customer is cooking) or just to be slightly lifted from the table.
The images also revealed support for a stylus with 4,096 pressure-sensitive levels for clearer lines during drawing. There will be one USB-C port for charging on the tubular part of the device, as well as a port, likely another USB-C, for connectivity.
If the Yoga Pad Pro really can act as a secondary screen with a simple HDMI to USB cable, it would be a great addition to laptops and other home screens in the current situation of working from home.
Lenovo hasn’t said anything about a launch date, but we expect the Yoga Pad Pro to be launched very soon, and that’s when we’ll know all the details.
