At IFA 2017, Lenovo today announced their next generation flagship convertible device, the Yoga 920. Apart from the obvious improvements you expect from a flagship convertible, the Yoga 920 comes with support for far-field technology that enables Cortana to recognize voice commands from up to four meters away. The Yoga 920 also comes with an optional Lenovo Active Pen 2 that supports 4,096 levels of pen sensitivity. Users can configure this device up to an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB RAM. A nearly bezel-less 4K IPS touchscreen in a 13.9-inch frame allows you to enjoy visuals without any distractions. It includes an integrated fingerprint reader for Windows Hello based biometric authentication.
The 920 also fixes all the annoying issues from the previous generation, including 2 Thunderbolt USB-C charging ports, a top-mounted web cam, the aforementioned pen support, and even larger shift keys.
Despite packing all these stuff, it weighs just 1.37 kg (3.02 lbs) and it is just 13.95 mm (0.55 in) thick. Lenovo also highlighted that this laptop is compatible with their newly announced Lenovo Explorer immersive headset for Windows Mixed Reality.
Lenovo also announced that Yoga 920 will come in limited edition Gorilla Glass cover designs: Yoga 920 Vibes featuring a “visual vibration” design, Star Wars Special Edition Yoga 920 Rebel Alliance and Star Wars Special Edition Yoga 920 Galactic Empire.
Yoga 920 will start at €1,599.99 ($1330 in the US) in September 2017. 11 Yoga 920 Vibes will start at €1799. Star Wars Special Edition Yoga 920 Rebel Alliance and Star Wars Special Edition Yoga 920 Galactic Empire will each start at €1,899 in December 2017.
