Lenovo upgrades the Yoga Slim 7 Pro with the new Ryzen 5000H. Updating its current line of notebooks, introduced late last year, the latest documents found on Lenovo’s website seem to predict the imminent upgrade of the Yoga Slim 7 Pro with the new generation of AMD processors, leaping the new Ryzen 5000H.

Keeping the same design as its predecessor, the new Yoga Slim 7 Pro 2021 will even maintain the same dimensions, with a 14-inch panel for its two versions, a size of just 1.7 centimeters thick, and an aluminum body that will keep it close to 1.3 kilograms.
Both displays support 100% sRGB and Dolby Vision color gamut. The laptop also features dual 2W speakers with Harman audio branding and Dolby Atmos support, a 720p camera with Windows Hello facial recognition support, and a two-microphone array.
Inside, the Yoga Slim 7 Pro will feature up to 1TB of storage with PCIe 3.0 × 4 NVMe, as well as a configuration of up to 16GB of dual-channel DDR4-3200 RAM. Although it is worth noting that, like previous models, while the storage will be mounted in an M. 2280 slot, the memory will be soldered to the motherboard, so we will not be able to upgrade it.
As for its wireless capabilities, we will notice the important leap to WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, without lagging in terms of connectivity, with two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, and a 3.5 mm audio jack. While it will be possible to use the USB-C port for charging and/or video output, data transfer speeds exceed 10 Gbps, so you won’t get Thunderbolt speeds.
At the moment no availability date or price is known, which are expected to arrive soon, along with the company’s official announcement and presentation.
