For audio, it has quad JBL speakers, with two built into its soundbar, as well as Lenovo Premium Audio tuning, Dolby Atmos, dual mics, and a bottom audio chamber.
The Yoga Tab 13 also offers Wi-Fi 6 support and can be used with the optional Lenovo Precision Pen 2. In other areas, it can be used as a secondary display when connected with a micro-HDMI to USB cable, and offers up to 12 hours of battery when streaming in 1080p. It also has Entertainment Space from Google, which is described as “a new home for the entertainment goodness from all your free and paid services”.
