Lenovo teases second generation Yoga Book with Halo keyboard

More than a year ago, Lenovo unveiled a particularly unique laptop-esque device called the Yoga Book. Although the machine was intended for light use and featured modest specifications, one thing set it apart from the rest of the competition: a "Halo keyboard". Simply put, this was a touchscreen surface offering a digital keyboard instead of a hardware one.

At Computex this year, Lenovo has teased a refresh to its Yoga Book from 2016.

While Lenovo hasn't given away much in terms of details, it has stated that the upcoming device will be "ultra thin and light", likely due to its thin Halo keyboard panel. Furthermore, it will also feature more powerful Intel CPUs, along with dual display panels with touch.

The company has also teased an enhanced inking experience and an "AI-enabled keyboard". While it has not clarified what the latter exactly entails, it probably has something to do with predictive typing.

2016's Lenovo Yoga Book received a positive review from Neowin's Rich Woods, with criticism mainly aimed at the Halo keyboard. It remains to be seen if Lenovo has been able to further improve the typing experience with the second generation of the device. It is also unclear if the upcoming device will feature both Android and Windows variants, like its predecessor.
