January 9, 2024  16:20

Lenovo has introduced a "two-in-one" device that operates on both Windows and Android. The new device is named Lenovo ThinkBook Plus Gen 5 Hybrid.

This innovative hybrid device from Lenovo can switch between two operating systems depending on how you intend to use it. If you want to use it as a tablet, simply detach the 14-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2.8K from the base, and it transforms into an Android tablet. Attach it back to the keyboard base, and it returns to Windows mode. The ThinkBook Plus Gen 5 Hybrid will be available for purchase in the second quarter and will cost $2000.

The new ThinkBook Plus Gen 5 Hybrid is equipped with a Qualcomm processor for tablet functionality and an Intel chip at its core. This means that these two parts can operate independently when needed, and the base can function as a standalone Windows computer when connected to an external monitor.

In the keyboard block (Hybrid Station), there is an Intel Core Ultra 7 processor, 32 GB of RAM, and a 1 TB SSD. In the tablet (Hybrid Tab), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, 12 GB of RAM, and 256 GB of flash memory are installed. The device runs on Android 13 and has a 38 Wh battery, while the Station operates on Windows 11 and has a 75 Wh battery.
