At CES 2019, Lenovo announced the updated ThinkPad X1 Yoga convertible. This new ThinkPad X1 Yoga 6th gen device comes with a completely new chassis. Instead of traditional ThinkPad carbon fiber black chassis, this device comes with CNC-machined aluminium chassis and it is ‘Iron Grey’ in color.

Lenovo has reduced the overall footprint of the device, thanks to smaller bezels around the display. Lenovo has also addressed the main customer feedback around sound quality from the previous generation. In this 6th gen ThinkPad X1 Yoga, Lenovo has included Dolby Atmos sound system with two user facing speakers and a sub-woofer. Users can select between 4K HDR IPS display, WQHD IPS Touch display and Full HD IPS Touch display with ePrivacy feature.

The ThinkPad X1 Yoga 6th gen is powered by 8th gen Intel Core processors, up to 16GB RAM and 2TB PCIe SSD. As usual, this device will offer plenty of connectivity options. You have got 2 USB-A ports, 2 USB-C Thunderbolt ports, 3.5mm audio jack, and a full HDMI port.

The ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 will be available in 2019 starting at $1929.
