When will the Lenovo Smart paper be released across global markets? Read below for the best Lenovo Smart Paper release date prediction based on the latest rumors and information.

The CES 2023 was great for Lenovo. This year, the Chinese tech conglomerate unveiled a slew of new laptops and tablets, including Lenovo’s first e-ink tablet, the Lenovo Smart Paper. 

The e-ink tablets have been around for a while. But the hardware makers have suddenly found renewed interest in this category. For Example, Amazon announced Kindle Scribe last year. And now, Lenovo has joined the race, too, with its Smart Paper tablet. Lenovo designed this tablet for students. It is a complete package with a stylus and a folio case. The Lenovo Smart Paper is also capable of note-taking, creating documents, reading e-books, and recording audio.

Lenovo Smart Paper release date history

There’s nothing to discuss in the history of the Lenovo Smart Paper tablet as it is the first e-ink tablet from the company. But this e-ink tablet is already being sold in China under the Lenovo YOGA Paper name. 

The tablet was launched in December 2022 within China. If we look at the history of Lenovo’s product releases, the company usually takes a few months to release a product after a China launch globally, though the timing varies a bit. Take the Legion Y700 tablet for example:

  • Lenovo Legion Y700 Chinese Release Date: February 2022
  • Lenovo Legion Y700 Global Release Date: Still hasn’t yet released, but it is expected to launch soon. 

Lenovo has taken nearly a year to launch the Legion Y700 tablet globally, but we don’t expect the company to take this long for the Smart Paper, we certainly expect to see it by the end of 2023 at the latest, given they were showing it off at CES. 

Lenovo Smart Paper release date window prediction

  • (Chinese) Lenovo YOGA Paper release date: December 2022
  • (Global) Lenovo Smart Paper release date: unknown, but sometime in 2023 highly probable

This tablet is already on sale in China with the name Lenovo YOGA Paper. Currently, this is a China-exclusive product from Lenovo.

Lenovo Smart Paper is the global name for the product. However, Lenovo hasn’t disclosed the global release date of the e-ink tablet.

Details are thin on the ground, but we’d expect to see a Lenovo Smart Paper release date at some point in Q2 – Q4 2023, though admittedly this is just speculation.
