Lenovo is reportedly publishing an upgrade to its flagship Yoga 2-in-1 laptop at the IFA Technology Fair in Berlin, Germany, later this year the current ‘Yoga C930’.
News item from the German technology world WinFuture has discovered the name and almost complete specification sheet of the Yoga follow-up before the planned unveiling. The ‘C’ in the name reportedly marks a new product naming method for Lenovo, which stands for ‘consumer.’
However, according to the findings of WinFuture, the flagship Yoga design of the Lenovo Yoga 920 does not change much (see above). In particular, this new model will be supplied with either an Intel Core i5-8250U or the Intel Core i7-8550U processor, both of which are 8-generation Kaby Lake components and are already available within the Yoga 920.
The leak that WinFuture has obtained includes all other configuration specifications, including the same 8 GB to 16 GB memory and 256 GB to 512 GB of storage behind a 13.9-inch 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) touchscreen. Again, the screen is 360 degrees bendable with Lenovo’s signature watch hinge, and it supports the Active Pen stylus from Lenovo.
This model is said to include even the same wired and wireless connectivity options, including two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB 3.1 port, a headphone jack, 802.11ac Gigabit Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.1 support. Even the 720p webcam returns to the top of the screen, just like the fingerprint reader.
Although nothing else changes, WinFuture reports that the laptop’s battery may be smaller than before, and thus might expect shorter battery life than ever before. The power outlet assumes that the laptop costs about $1,880 (about €1,600, £1,418, AU $2,519), but we will have to wait for an official announcement before we talk.
It is possible that the leaked materials that WinFuture has uncovered are premature – too early to include updated hardware data. Otherwise, this is just a rebranding of the current Lenovo Yoga flagship laptop.
Of course, this leak does not reveal anything that Lenovo may have done with the flagship design of Yoga to improve the previous one. Keep it locked here for more information on this possible Lenovo Yoga C930 when we get closer to IFA 2018.
