More than a year after its release, the Lenovo Chromebook Duet is following suit. The Chromebook Duet 5 (IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook outside North America) is a reinvention of the detachable Duet Chromebook, with a higher price tag, a new processor, and a 13.3-inch OLED display.

The company said the Chromebook Duet 5 may be the first batch of Chromebook Duet series products. This is an ambitious attempt to bring in detachable shapes at multiple price points. The company continues to sell 10.1-inch Duet Chromebooks (for now).

The new OLED screen covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color space and emits 70% less blue light than LCD panels.

The OLED display has long been a luxury icon in the PC arena, and the Chromebook Duet 5, which starts at $430, is one of the cheaper laptops to use this technology.

This Chromebook is part of the recent wave of thinner and lighter laptops with OLED screens.

Lenovo has also added a Windows-controlled OLED model to its IdeaPad series. ASUS has gifted many consumers and industries (including the budget VivoBook and ultraportable ZenBook) with this technology.

Samsung (the world's largest OLED seller) previously announced in January that it will start producing 90Hz OLED displays this year.

The Chromebook Duet 5 is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 computing platform, which was announced in May.

The chip is designed for entry-level laptops. It recently appeared on the Samsung Galaxy Book Go, priced at $349.

This year, all kinds of laptops with detachable forms appeared. This model is more common on Microsoft Surface Pro devices.

Asus is now selling the detachable CM3 Chromebook. It is a direct competitor to the Chromebook Duet. But it has its own pen slot and holder that folds vertically and horizontally.

The HP Elite Folio is priced at $1,629 and also comes with a Snapdragon processor. But it works on Windows. Earlier this year, Lenovo tested the look of the ThinkPad X-Series, which comes with a detachable X12 processor and an Intel Core i5 processor.

Chromebook Duet 5 is expected to be available in October.
