Lenovo is expected to announce several new technologies at its annual Tech World 2021 event, where it will provide services for customers, infrastructure, and data centers.
This year, Lenovo’s annual showcase will focus on the “next reality” as the world evolves into the post-pandemic era, “enabled by smarter technology for everyone.” The event will bring together several tech industry leaders, including the CEOs of Lenovo, Microsoft, and Intel, who will offer exclusive virtual sessions on the “innovations to transform the way we live, learn, connect and work over the next year and beyond.”
Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Carbon
A 14-inch diagonal OLED display from Samsung with a massive native QHD+ resolution of 2880 x 1800 pixels, 90 Hz refresh rate, VESA certification for DisplayHDR TrueBlack 500 support, 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut, Dolby Vision and optional touchscreen reinforced with Gorilla Glass is one such example.
Spectacular display no doubt, which is accompanied by narrow bezels on all four sides, with carbon fiber and aluminum alloy chassis measuring just 14.9 mm at its narrowest point and a total weight of 1.1 kg that allows you to carry it comfortably anywhere. This Yoga boasts the lightest 14-inch OLED display laptop on the market.
Lenovo has improved the internal hardware of the series to incorporate AMD Ryzen 7 5800U with integrated Radeon GPUs and dedicated NVIDIA MX450 graphics, as well as enhance overall performance. It is accompanied by dual-channel LPDDR4 RAM and up to 16GB, along with PCIe NVMe SSD up to 1TB for internal storage.
Well updated with the latest connectivity standards, it features Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, three USB Type-C ports (Internal USB 3.2) and audio combo jack, Dolby Atmos stereo speakers, and a 61 Wh battery that allows up to 14.5 hours of autonomy and a fast-charging system.
With Windows 11 (the first device we see announced with Microsoft’s next operating system pre-installed) it will have a base price of $1,289 and is expected to be available from October 2021. It will be sold in some regions as IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro.
Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 PRO
The second device in the series is just as interesting. It is a laptop with a 16-inch diagonal display, 2.5K resolution, and a 16:10 aspect ratio. As you know, this screen size is being adopted by quite a few manufacturers as the reduced bezels make it possible to offer the display capabilities of 17-inch laptops in a smaller size.
For this Yoga, Lenovo is also betting on AMD processors, but upping the performance level with the 45-watt Ryzen 7 5800H and the boost for the graphics subsystem enabled by the dedicated NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 included that enables it as an all-around machine, productivity or gaming.
You can install up to 16GB of dual-channel LPDDR4 memory and for internal storage mounts PCIe NVMe solid-state drives with storage capacity up to 1TB.
Among its connectivity, we see Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1, two USB 3.2 Type-A ports, a USB Type C port, a headphone jack, an HDMI video output, and an SD card reader. It has a numeric keypad, supports Dolby Atmos for audio and its 75 WHr battery will offer an autonomy of up to 12.5 hours and fast recharging system. Its webcam includes an IR sensor connected to Windows Hello for biometric authentication and enhanced security.
The Yoga Slim 7 PRO will be powered by Windows 11, according to the specs. It’ll come in two hues and cost approximately $1,449 when it launches in October 2021. In some countries, it’ll be known as the IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro like its predecessor.
