Suggested March 2024 New Lenovo Yoga Pro 9I Laptop Features 165Hz Mini

In fact, none of the six new Windows 11 devices in the Yoga lineup can turn into a tablet. That might sound like a bad thing, but it’s simply not necessary on creator-focused Yoga Pro laptops. 

They’re headlined by the Pro 9i, the most powerful Yoga laptop Lenovo has ever made. Available in 14.5in or 16in models, it’s equipped with 13th-gen Intel Core CPUs (i5-13505H, i7-13705H or i9-13905H) and DDR5 RAM ranging from 16- to 64GB. 

But it’s the discrete GPUs that are arguably more exciting. While the cheapest 14.5in version uses Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics, all other configurations feature Nvidia RTX 40 Series graphics – 4050, 4060 or 4070. It’s no wonder Lenovo says it’s suitable for demanding tasks such as 3D modelling and graphic design.

However, those are specs you’ll find on several high-end laptops. What you don’t often see are Mini-LED displays, which generally strike a good balance between contrast and brightness. Lenovo claims a maximum of 1200 nits here, which is some four times brighter than some budget laptops. 

Lenovo also has one eye on the environment, with half of the aluminium in the back cover and plastic in the keyboard made from recycled materials. The keyboard’s keys have 1.5mm of key travel and a large trackpad, with a separate numberpad the only addition on the 16in version. 

Other key features include a 5Mp webcam with electronic shutter, quad microphones and a 75Wh battery. You also get plenty of ports: 1x USB-C, 2x USB-A, HDMI, 3.5mm audio jack and full-size SD card reader. 

But with starting prices of $1,699.99 (approx. £1,380) for the 14.5in and $1,799.99 (approx. £1,460) for the 16in respectively, you’ll need deep pockets once they arrive in May in North America. A release date elsewhere is yet to be confirmed. 

Yoga 7 range

If your budget can’t quite stretch that far, Lenovo has plenty of more affordable options. There are no fewer than seven Yoga 7-branded models, and it’s worth briefly exploring what each brings to the table. 

It’s only available with a 14.5in IPS display, but you can choose between 2560×1600 at 90Hz or 3072×1920 at 120Hz. You drop down to a 73Wh hour battery, but fast charging support means just 15 minutes of being plugged into the mains should be able to give you you up to three hours of use. 

The new Yoga Pro 7i

Lenovo

The $1,449.99 (approx. £1,180) Yoga Pro 7 is identical to the 7i in many ways, but there’s one key exception. It shifts to AMD CPUs, with a choice of four high-end chips from the latest Ryzen 7000 HS Series. Cheaper models use integrated Radeon graphics as a result, but you can still step up to the RTX 3050 or 4050. It’ll be available in North America from July. 

For a similar price in Europe, you’ll be able to get the Yoga Slim 7 (from €1,499, approx. $1,615/£1,315) in June. As the name suggests, it’s relatively thin and light for a 14.5 (OLED, 90Hz) laptop, at 13.9mm and 1.35kg respectively. You also get AMD Ryzen processors here (Lenovo hasn’t specified which ones), but integrated Radeon graphics are your only option here. 

Then there’s the regular Yoga 7i and Yoga 7, both of which are available in 14in or 16in sizes. Prices here start at $749.99 (approx. £610), so they’re much more affordable. Release dates vary between April and May, while the latter is when you can get your hands on the Yoga Slim 6 – it starts at €899 (approx. $970/£790). 

It can be hard to keep track of the wide variety of Yoga devices Lenovo releases every year, but the company is catering to a range of different budgets with its latest lineup.

Lenovo Yoga 9I 14 (2024) Review: The Pinnacle Of Design

Pros

Thin, attractive design

Supports USB-C 4 with all the extras

Vivid, rich OLED display

Excellent sound quality

Fast, especially for its size

Cons

Relies heavily on USB-C 

Fan noise can be annoying

Our Verdict

The Lenovo Yoga 9i 14-inch uses Intel’s 12th-gen Core processors to deliver solid performance in a compact machine.

A decade has passed since Lenovo introduced the first Yoga 2-in-1. Though Microsoft’s Surface devices set the trend, it was arguably the high-volume Yoga line that became the true vanguard of mainstream convertible design. Lenovo’s Yoga 9i 14-inch (2024) builds on this decade of experience in all the right ways. From the thin profile to the powerful internals, this year’s model delivers blazing fast performance in a tiny package. Although the fan noise can be a bit loud and we feel as though it relies too much on USB-C, overall we were impressed with this machine.

Lenovo Yoga 9i 14-inch specifications

The Lenovo Yoga 9i 14-inch is among the first laptops with Intel’s new 12th-Gen Core mobile processors targeting thin-and-light machines. Though thin, the laptop packs four performance cores and eight efficiency cores for a total of 12.

Design and build quality

IDG / Matthew Elliott

Lenovo doesn’t get enough credit for its design. I can’t think of another Windows laptop maker so consistently willing to go off script and the Yoga 9i 14-inch is a prime example of its willingness to depart from the norm.

From a distance, the Yoga 9i looks like most Windows 2-in-1s. It’s a clamshell design with a rotating hinge that folds back 360 degrees, effectively turning the laptop into a tablet. Approach it, however, and you’ll notice the laptop is adorned with round, gleaming chrome edges across the top and bottom half. 

It’s an eye-catching look with practical benefits. The rounded edges mean you never encounter a hard touch point while maneuvering the laptop. This will be a minor point for many. After all, it’s not like other 2-in-1s will slice your finger. Still, the Yoga 9i is more inviting than the norm.

The Yoga 9i’s low weight and touchscreen further improves ease of use. It’s a great machine to carry with one hand or spin around to share something with a friend or co-worker across a table. It’s not small or light enough to be an iPad replacement, but the 9i comes as close as you can expect from a device without a detachable keyboard. That’s good news if you need a 2-in-1 for use in cramped spaces or for travel.

Keyboard and trackpad

IDG / Matthew Elliott

The Yoga 9i 14-inch offers a quality keyboard despite its thin profile. Key travel is good and has a firm, pleasant bottoming action. The layout is also excellent and makes full use of the laptop’s 14-inch size. Key caps are reasonably sized yet there’s plenty of space between keys.

Several unique keys can be found on the keyboard’s right side. These include a key that turns the Windows system-wide dark mode setting on or off and one that flips through performance modes. Though a nice extra, they’re not a must-have and won’t change how most people use the 2-in-1. The keyboard has a backlight and uses a light sensor to automatically turn it on in a dark room (it can also be activated manually). 

I appreciate the Yoga 9i’s large touchpad. It measures about 5 inches across and three inches deep. This is a great size for a thin, portable 2-in-1 and provides plenty of room for Windows’ multi-touch gestures. The touchpad does a good job of rejecting unintended input, which is important, as its large size means my palms came to rest on its surface. 

Display, audio

IDG / Matthew Elliott

The base Yoga 9i 14-inch has a IPS touchscreen with 1,920 x 1,200 resolution, but my review unit had the upgraded OLED touchscreen with 3,840 x 2,400 resolution. This makes for a 16:10 aspect ratio which provides extra vertical screen real estate that’s useful when multitasking or viewing vertically scrolling content like web pages or PDF documents. Text clarity is excellent, as 323 pixels are crammed into each inch. Eagle-eyed users might detect a fine speckled pattern in bright white documents, a likely result of the OLED screen’s particular subpixel layout, but I didn’t find it distracting.

Image quality is otherwise excellent. The Yoga 9i’s display has accurate color, a wide color gamut spanning up to 99% of DCI-P3, a high maximum brightness above 400 nits, and deep black levels thanks to the OLED display panel. Images and movies look vivid, crisp, and have a realistic sense of dimensionality that draws in your eye.

The display is glossy, so glare can be a problem. The maximum brightness of 400 nits allows use even when beside a sunlit window but some reflections will be obvious. 

In another departure from the norm, the Yoga 9i leans hard into audio quality. The hinge doubles as a miniature Dolby Atmos soundbar. It works well, delivering a loud, throaty presentation that is suited to music and movies but still clear enough for podcasts. Maximum volume is high enough to fill an office, though this sometimes muddies the sound in bass-heavy tracks. This is an excellent sound system for a slim 2-in-1. 

Webcam, microphone, biometrics

A 1080p camera standard on the Yoga 9i 14-inch. This is great to see on any premium Windows device and remains the exception, not the rule. It’s an obvious upgrade over 720p, offering a big leap in sharpness and more accurate, vivid color. Exposure is still an issue in unevenly lit rooms, however, and using it at night will introduce a ton of noise. The camera offers a small physical privacy shutter, which is a nice touch. 

The laptop’s dual microphone setup performs as expected. It’s usable from several feet away from the laptop. You can even speak from across a small room if you raise your voice. Quality is thin and distant, however, and distinctly different from using a real microphone. 

Biometric login is offered through both a fingerprint reader and facial recognition. The fingerprint reader works well but, as always, it can be fooled by greasy or dirty fingerprints. Facial recognition through Windows Hello is the quicker, more reliable method. It works well even in a dark room.

Connectivity

The Lenovo Yoga 9i 14-inch has a pair of USB-C 4 / Thunderbolt 4 ports. These include DisplayPort Alternate Mode for connecting displays and can charge the laptop when connected to a USB-C power source. With the right adapters, these versatile ports can be used to attach a HDMI or DisplayPort display, connect to the Internet over wired Ethernet, or drive multiple additional USB ports in a USB hub. 

While the lack of wired connectivity will annoy some, it’s typical for the premium 2-in-1 space. Want more wired connectivity? You’ll need to put up with a heavier, thicker machine. 

Wireless connectivity is provided by Wi-Fi 6 along with Bluetooth 5.1. The wireless adapter provided very strong, reliable performance in my testing, dealing well with all corners of my home. Bluetooth was functional up to about 25 feet with walls between devices.

Performance

The Yoga 9i 14-inch is an interesting test of the Intel Core i7-1260P’s capabilities. This new 12th-Gen Intel Core processor packs a total of 12 processor cores (four P-Cores, 8 E-Cores) plus Intel Xe graphics. It looks great on paper.

IDG / Matthew Elliott

PCMark 10 gets the Yoga 9i with i7-1260P off to a mediocre start. The benchmark score of 5,280 is not bad, but it doesn’t defeat the prior model with an Intel Core i7-1195G7 processor. It also falls behind the Ryzen 5700U. 

IDG / Matthew Elliott

The heavily multi-threaded Cinebench R15 benchmark is a different story. It puts the cores to work for an outstanding score of 1,837. This absolutely blows away the prior Core i7-1195G7 and comes surprisingly close to the Ryzen 7 5700H. Intel’s many-core approach pays off here.

IDG / Matthew Elliott

This remains true in Handbrake, another heavily multithreaded benchmark. Transcoding a 4K file of the short film Tears of Steel takes over an hour, which is a long time, but it’s about a half-hour less than prior Intel processors. The Core i7-1260P does not score as close to the Ryzen 7 5700H as in Cinebench, however.

But what about graphics? 

IDG / Matthew Elliott

The Core i7-1260P offers many processor cores but doesn’t make big changes to integrated graphics. That’s fine, as Intel’s Iris Xe with 96 execution units (EUs) remains capable for its category. It delivered a score of 1,985 in 3DMark Time Spy. This is the match for the best Intel integrated graphics we’ve tested in the past and will match or beat most Ryzen mobile APUs, as well. 

Games from the Xbox One / PlayStation 4 era are typically playable at 30 FPS or better, though the most demanding will require cuts in resolution and detail settings. Older games, like Counter-Strike or League of Legends, can sustain 60 FPS at 1080p. 

There’s just one issue to be aware of – noise. The Yoga 9i is quiet at idle but a real whirlwind at full tilt. It’s enough to annoy anyone in the same room if the laptop is left in the open. This is an area where Intel-powered laptops just can’t compete with Apple’s nearly silent MacBook line. 

Battery life

Lenovo squeezes a large 75 watt-hour battery into the slim Yoga 9i 14-inch. This is serious capacity for a 2-in-1 and good news for endurance. 

IDG / Matthew Elliott

The Yoga 9i lasted 12 hours and 12 minutes in our standard battery test, which loops a local 4K video file until the laptop dies. This is far from a record and a bit less than the prior Yoga 9i model, but I’d still call it better than average. 

Real-world observed battery life was not as impressive. The laptop averaged about seven hours of endurance in a workload of heavy web browsing, document editing, and occasional photo editing. The 4K OLED display is a likely factor, as these screens can be power-hungry at high brightness. 

Software

The product page for Lenovo’s Yoga 9i touts several partnerships including Amazon Alexa for PC and three free months of Xbox Game Pass. Free stuff is nice, but it hints at a problem: there’s a lot of bloatware. 

Conclusion

Lenovo’s Yoga 9i 14-inch is an excellent addition to the company’s long line of capable premium 2-in-1s. It packs strong performance, a great OLED display, excellent audio, a pleasant keyboard, a large touchpad, and future-proof connectivity into one compact, versatile package. Though Intel’s new Core i7-1260P is performant enough for many professionals and creators, the Yoga 9i’s size and connectivity makes it ideal for travelers, students, and everyday users who want a premium Windows experience. 

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 (10.1

The Yoga 2’s display is crisp, clear and offers an interesting resolution that we don’t see on most Android tablets. It features a 10.1-inch IPS LCD display with a 1920 x 1200 resolution with a pixel density of 224 ppi. The colors are vivid and the saturation levels are close to perfect, making for a beautiful display. Unfortunately, when it comes to text, there seems to be something wrong. Text isn’t as clear as we would have hoped, and every once in a while we can see a ghosting effect under the text. We’re not sure if the odd pixel density is causing it, but we just know that the text isn’t as clear as it should be.

Outdoor visibility is good, but not great, similar to most other tablets on the market. If it helps in daylight, the screen can be switched to a matte color profile, though it tends to alter colors a bit when switched to this mode.

As for holding the tablet, the bezels on the left and right sides are big enough to hold it comfortably in your hands without accidentally touching the screen. If you were to touch the screen, though, it’s not the end of the world, as the tablet does a pretty good job at hiding fingerprints on the screen. You’ll still need a cleaning cloth to ensure the screen isn’t too dirty, but compared to other tablet screens, it seems like we don’t need to wipe it off as often.

The Yoga 2 features an Intel Atom quad-core 1.33GHz 64-bit processor, 2GB of RAM, a non-removable 9600mAh battery, 16GB of on-board storage, as well as Micro SD card expansion for up to 64GB. The Micro SD card slot is tucked away underneath the kickstand. This is a great location for the card slot, as it helps make the appearance of the device look much more clean. Still, we’re sure many users will overlook it since it’s tucked away so well. The Yoga 2 is also using an Intel HD graphics card. We’ll talk more about that when it comes to performance.

Using a relatively unproven processor is risky thing to include in a tablet, and unfortunately, performance on the Yoga 2 isn’t all that great. The Yoga 2 struggles with everyday tasks like scrolling through web pages, switching tasks, and even unlocking the device. Performance is all-around laggy, and we find ourselves unable to scroll in web pages more than we’d like. We found the webpage lag to be consistent with multiple browsers, even after both soft and hard resets. Not to mention, we really struggled with the lock screen. More often than not, when we unlock the device, we hear the device’s unlock sound, but nothing happens… the screen is stuck on the lock screen.

For those who would like to see how the Yoga 2 performs in benchmark tests, take a look at the gallery below. We know benchmark tests aren’t the most reliable tests out there, but they can be helpful in some situations.

Where the performance gets even more interesting is with gaming. Thanks to the Intel Graphics GPU, we had quite a smooth time playing graphic-intensive games like Dead Trigger 2. In fact, our experience with Dead Trigger 2 was one of the smoothest we’ve ever been a part of on an Android tablet.

So, the user interface is quite sluggish, even though graphics performance and gaming is smooth. It seems like Lenovo needs to work something out when it comes to software optimization, because that doesn’t really make much sense to us.

The Yoga 2 comes with an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 1.6MP front-facing camera. The front-facer is placed dead-center on the top bezel, making selfies super easy and comfortable to take. However, as we explained before, the rear-facer is in an odd spot on the back of the device. It’s on the bottom left near the kickstand, and we found ourselves having to move our left hand to a more uncomfortable position to take a picture. Honestly, most rear-facing tablet cameras are in the top middle portion of the device, because that’s the most convenient place for them. We would have liked to see the camera in a different location, but from a hardware standpoint, it makes sense why Lenovo placed the camera where they did.

When it comes to image quality, the Yoga 2 doesn’t perform that well. Most images we took on the camera, whether we were using the front or rear-facer, came out grainy, missing intricate details, and lacked color. Picture quality even suffered with indoor studio lighting. Low-light images are bad as well, and we would suggest pulling out your phone instead of trying to take a picture with the tablet when it comes to low-light. Outdoor shots are a bit better than low-light, though they’re nothing to brag about either. Both cameras are extremely sensitive to light, making each and every picture we took blown out.

We’re seeing more and more tablet photographers every day, whether we like it or not. If you’re looking for a decent camera on a tablet, you may want to stray away from the Yoga 2.

A couple things come to mind when it comes to tablet battery life – screen-on time and standby time. For all of you road warriors out there, you’ll be pleased to know that the Yoga 2 has exceptional battery life. Standby time will last multiple days, and screen-on time can last up to 5+ hours. We put the Yoga 2 through a benchmark battery test, and finally died after about 13 hours of constant use during the test. It’s one of the best batteries we’ve seen on a tablet to date.

You can find the Lenovo Yoga 2 10.1-inch for $269.99 from either Amazon or directly through Lenovo. This is actually a really great value for a tablet this size compared to the other offerings on the market.

In a world with a ton of different tablets to choose from, standing out is everything. Just based on the size, build quality, screen, and speakers, we’d say that Lenovo does just that. However, you need to know what flaws the tablet brings before making your purchase. The software is largely unoriginal, the cameras are almost unusable, and the entire UI runs a bit slow. If you can get over those negatives, you’ll have one heck of a well-built tablet.

How To Reset Lenovo Laptop

How to reset Lenovo laptop

Here’s how to reset your Lenovo Laptop for Windows 10, Windows 11, or by using Lenovo OneKey

Figuring out how to reset Lenovo laptop doesn’t have to be a laborious task. In fact, Lenovo laptops have additional functionality for this. On most laptops, there’s only one way to factory reset. But Lenovo provides an additional option to its users. It’s called OneKey Recovery.

So, the following article explains both ways of resetting a Lenovo laptop.

How to reset a Lenovo laptop using Lenovo OneKey Recovery

Lenovo laptops like the ThinkPad or the IdeaPad come with the Lenovo OneKey Recovery Mode. It allows the users to use OneKey Recovery. OneKey Recovery is activated via the Novo Button. But there’s not always physical button on the laptop. Some models have a hole in the side of the laptop, and you have to use an unfolded paper clip or a SIM ejector tool or a similar object to press this button.

Do note that resetting your Lenovo laptop to factory defaults with this method will erase all data from it, so it’s best to back up any important files on an external hard drive or flash drive.

Step

1

Shut down your laptop

Power off your Lenovo laptop. Do this by going to the Windows start menu and selecting the ‘Shut down‘ option.

Step

2

Press the Novo button

Press the Novo button located either near the power button or on the side of your Lenovo laptop, the image below shows how this should look.

Some Novo buttons require a SIM ejector tool (or unfolded paper clip) to press.

The Novo button is very effective against booting issues, and the OneKey Recovery Mode can help you with system recovery.

Step

3

Open System Recovery

Step

4

Choose restore backup

Now we choose the kind of backup method to use before resetting. For most users, you’ll want to use the ‘Restore from initial backup‘ setting. This will reset your Lenovo laptop back to it’s factory settings.

If you instead have an external backup image, you can use the user’s backup option to configure this.

Step

5

Start system restoration

Step

6

Finish system restoration

Step

7

Set up your laptop

Once your laptop has rebooted, you’ll be greeted with some initial set-up screens as if the laptop was brand new. This confirms that the device has been reset to it’s factory settings.

Now you’ll have to follow the process of setting your laptop back up again. This includes choosing your region, language, licensing agreement, Wi-Fi, account, and personalization options.

Go through this process as normal and you’ll be booted back into your fresh installation of Windows.

How to reset a Lenovo laptop in Windows

This is the conventional way to reset a Lenovo or any laptop for that matter. The steps are simple, but the process differs a bit between Windows 10 & 11.

For Windows 11

Follow the steps below if you are using Windows 11 on your Lenovo laptop. 

Press the Win + I keys on your keyboard to open Windows Settings.

Select System on the left side of the window.

You have to choose between two options. Keep My Files & Remove Everything.

After selecting an option, you will proceed to the next window, where you have to choose between Cloud Download or Local Reinstall.

Note: Even if you choose the Keep My Files option, it is best to make a backup of all your files beforehand. Just in case something goes wrong. If you don’t have a valid backup system, use a cloud-based storage service or an external drive.

For Windows 10 

This is for Windows 10 users only. It is slightly different.

Open Windows Settings and navigate to the Update & Security option.

Select the Recovery option on the left side of the window.

After this point, you have to choose between Keep My Files and Remove Everything.

Note: As discussed earlier, be sure to create a backup, no matter which option you choose.

TL;DR

Lenovo announced its new 2023 lineup of Yoga laptops at CES 2023.

They include a model that will be made partially of recycled materials.

New Yoga branded monitors were also announced.

The Lenovo Yoga brand has been around for over 10 years now. The name is mostly associated with the company’s light convertible notebooks. Today at CES 2023, Lenovo announced new Yoga laptops. They include one model that will be made partially of recycled materials.

Read more: The best new laptops

The 13-inch Yoga 6 laptop (as seen at the top of this article) will have versions with a cover made from recycled aluminum. You can also buy one with a fabric-wrapped cover that’s made of 50% recycled plastics. Close to 25% of the laptop’s battery uses post-consumption plastic. Even the notebook’s packaging uses sustainable paper for the box and 90% of its protective cushion was made with recycled plastic.

The hardware specs of the new Windows 11-based Yoga 6 include an AMD Ryzen 5 or 7 processor, integrated Radeon graphics, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 1TB of SSD storage, and a battery that will last up to 17 hours on one charge. Pricing starts at $749 and it will go on sale in the second quarter.

Lenovo Yoga 9i

Lenovo Yoga 9i

The company is also launching the Lenovo Yoga 9i laptop. This 14-inch notebook has a few interesting features. One is five additional keys on its keyboard on the right side. Each offers users one-button access to special features. One button can switch the laptop to a higher performance mode or increase its battery life. Another quickly switches Windows 11 from light to dark mode.

Yet another button switches the audio from game mode to music mode. Another button blurs the background when you are on a video call. Finally, the laptop’s fingerprint sensor is embedded in one of the five extra buttons.

The Yoga 9i comes with an Intel 12th-gen Core i5 or i7 processor, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 1TB of storage, and a battery that can last as long as 20 hours. Pricing will start at $1,399 and it will go on sale in the second quarter of 2023.

Yoga 7i

Finally, there’s the Yoga 7i, which will come in 14-inch and 16-inch models, both with Intel 12th-gen Core processors. The 14-inch version can come with an OLED display for a better video or gaming experience.

The 16-inch version will also have a couple of hardware options. One will have Intel’s standard Iris XE integrated graphics, while the other will have Intel’s new discreet Arc graphics chip for better performance.  The 14-inch model will have a starting price of $949, while the 16-inch version will start at $899. Both will be available in the second quarter of 2023.

Lenovo’s environmental push and new monitors

To match the green credentials of the Yoga 6, Lenovo announced its new CO2 offset service for consumers. Buyers of Yoga laptops will have the option to offset the CO2 emissions the products would generate across their lifecycle, from manufacturing to recycling. Lenovo will then handle the purchase of the carbon offset credits to cover the estimated emissions. The company said the program — which was previously only available to commercial customers — has helped offset the greenhouse emissions equivalent of 100,000 cars driven for a full year.

Lenovo also announced three new monitors with the Yoga brand. That includes the 27-inch Lenovo Q27H-20 monitor with an edgeless display and an asymmetric metallic arm on the bottom that serves as its stand. Lenovo is also introducing the Yoga Q27Q-20 and Yoga Q24I-20 monitors. All will go on sale in May, starting at $199.99 for the Yoga Q24I-20, and up to $349.99 for the Q27H-20.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini And Mini Pro Get Official

Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini and mini pro get official

Sony Ericsson has announced the XPERIA mini and the mini pro, apparently the smallest HD smartphones in the world. The Android 2.3 Gingerbread handsets can shoot 720p HD video, and use Sony’s BRAVIA engine along with Sony Ericsson’s custom UI. The XPERIA mini is touch-only, but the mini pro has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Behind the 3-inch 320 x 480 scratch-resistant touchscreen there’s a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 320MB of storage and a microSD card slot (a 2GB card will be included). There’s also quadband GSM/EDGE, UMTS/HSDPA, WiFi, AGPS, Bluetooth, an FM radio and a 3.5mm headphones socket. On the back is a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, face-detection and an LED flash. A bigger, 1200mAh battery than the last-gen mini adds up to 30-percent longer runtimes.

The four shortcut corners of the original X10 mini have been retained, but each now acts as a shortcut area for four icons, in what Sony Ericsson is calling 4×4. That, along with auto-correction on both devices, adds up to what the company reckons is the performance and usability of larger Android phones, but in a very pocket-friendly form factor.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini will go on sale in August 2011 in a choice of white, black, blue and dark pink. The XPERIA mini pro, meanwhile, will drop at the same time in white, black, pink and turquoise. Pricing is yet to be confirmed, but we already know Vodafone UK will be ranging the mini pro.

May 5th, 2011, London – Sony Ericsson unveils the new Xperia™ mini and Xperia™ mini pro, the latest additions to its Xperia™ family. Building on the success of the original mini series, these innovative smartphones come packed full of features, powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon™ processor, and run the latest platform of Google’s Android™ – Gingerbread 2.3. Beautifully designed, Xperia™ mini and Xperia™ mini pro both integrate best-in-class imaging and display technology from Sony, including Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine and HD video recording (720p).

The products offer a full multimedia entertainment experience. Xperia™ mini and Xperia™ mini pro enable access to over 150,000 apps on the Android Market™ and has a 3″ scratch-resistant, multi-touch glass screen. The improved user interface allows up to 16 apps displayed on the home screen. Facebook inside Xperia™, a feature just announced for the Xperia™ family, provides a unique social media integration.

Xperia™ mini pro brings the optimized slide-out keyboard with smart functionality first seen on the Xperia™ pro to a compact smartphone. A subtle but fast Type & Send functionality eliminates the need to open a dedicated app for each type of message, and Smart Keyboard triggers predictive messaging actions automatically when the user slides out the keyboard. Xperia™ mini pro also comes pre-loaded with Office Suite and McAfee antivirus software, letting consumers manage documents and e-mails instantly and securely while on the move.

Steve Walker, Head of Marketing, Sony Ericsson said, “We wanted to provide consumers even greater choice across the Xperia™ range, while building on the success of the original mini series. These turbo-charged smartphones now contain even more power, enhanced functionality, a larger screen and premium features unique to Sony Ericsson. They are packed full of features, making them a perfect choice for consumers looking for all the benefits of Android and Sony in a beautiful and easy to use compact form factor.”
