The most noticeable difference is the 13-inch OLED screen, which is higher quality than the older model’s 10-inch FHD display. Because of the OLED screen, the Duet 5 can display 4K resolution.

Powering the new Duet 5 is Qualcomm’s second-generation Snapdragon 7c processor, which brings faster performance and long battery life. Lenovo claims the battery has a runtime of 15 hours on a single charge.

In addition to the new processor, the Duet 5 comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage space. It also comes with a USB-C charging port, audio jack, and four speakers. In addition, the device includes a 5 megapixel (MP) front camera and an 8MP rear camera.

The Chromebook Duet 5 launches in October with a price tag of $429.99.

The Lenovo Tab P12 Pro is similar to the Chromebook Duet 5. The tablet comes with a 12.6-inch AMOLED screen with a 2560x1600 resolution and a 120HZ refresh rate. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 870 processor with 8GB of RAM.
