That includes the Lenovo Pad Pro 2021 with an 11.5 inch screen, the Lenovo Pad Plus 11 and Lenovo Pad 11. All of them are detailed below.

Lenovo Pad Pro 2021 has the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor as the new Yoga model, but it comes with a smaller 11.5 inch OLED panel with 90 Hz refresh rate and 1 ms response time.

There’s also Dolby Vision and HDR10, plus a typical brightness of 420 nits (600 nits peak). There’s support for DC dimming for a flicker-free experience.
There’s also an optional stylus and the device has 4096 levels of pressure to work with. We also get a pogo pin connector at the bottom, so you can attach a keyboard cover with a trackpad The device is very slim, at 5.88 and weighs 485 grams.

Then there’s microSD card slot, an USB-C port (3.1), WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
