There are rumours circulating that Lenovo is coming up with Windows 8.1 versions of tablets in its current Yoga Tablet 2 versions. The models which are likely to be released with Windows 8.1 versions are the 8-inch and 10-inch Yoga Tablet 2 devices as well as 13-inch Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro.

There is a photo leak from Italian tech blog, TabTech.de, shows that most probably a 10.1-inch Lenovo Yoga tablet 2 is using Windows 8.1. The design appears to be similar to the Android version, the only difference is that there is addition of Windows button on the bottom bezel and the tablet’s body is using a slightly darker colour. Currently, there is no further detail on the internal hardware. On top of that, the Windows-based Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 series most probably is going to use the same specification as the Android version. If the assumption is correct, that means the Windows-based Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 series will come with Intel Bay Trail chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage space and a full HD resolution of all the three versions.

Recently, HTC has announced that HTC One M8 is now available with either Android or Windows Phone on the same hardware. However, there is no tablet manufacturer which allows Windows 8.1 and Android versions on the same device. Since Microsoft has lowered or even eliminated the licensing cost Windows 8.1 for tablets, we can expect more and more tablet manufacturers allow customers to choose between the two operating systems.
