Lenovo today announced the new YOGA 3 Pro, an ultra slim convertible PC that will be the successor to Yoga 2 Pro. The new 13-in YOGA 3 Pro is unbelievably thin and light frame with new watchband hinge design, same QHD+ screen as Yoga 2 Pro and comes with Harmony, Lenovo’s intuitive software that adapts to users’ personal preferences as they use the device in its different modes.
The current YOGA 2 Pro itself is a thin and light notebook, the new YOGA 3 Pro takes this concept even further by shaving 17 percent from its predecessor’s frame at just 12.8 mm thin – thinner than a pencil when opened. The PC also comes in lighter at 1.19kg – 14 percent less than before – lighter than a bottle of water. Lenovo’s new watchband hinge is constructed from more than 800 pieces of steel and aluminum. Lenovo engineers redesigned the original YOGA hinge so that it now provides the same degree of flexibility and flatness seen in metallic watch bands. Instead of two focus points, there are now six. Complementing the distinctive new hinge design, the YOGA 3 Pro is available in three eye-catching colors: Clementine Orange, Platinum Silver or Champagne Gold.
To advance the concept of adaptive computing and complement the YOGA’s responsive hardware features, Lenovo created the new Harmony software experience. Harmony gives YOGA owners a new way to discover applications and customize how they behave when used. For example, when reading an e-book, Harmony will automatically change the brightness and color temperature according to the environment lighting.
When using presentation software, Harmony can enable motion control or touch depending on the mode, or when watching video it can optimize the audio settings. Harmony can recognize and optimize the experience with more than 50 of the most popular applications. Harmony also recommends which apps other YOGA owners find useful and provides a handy shortcut to the apps used most frequently in each mode.
Optimized Performance in Any Mode
The YOGA 3 Pro offers users an excellent experience in any mode from the moment they open the lid. With a QHD+ 3200×1800 display, this bright and clear screen looks amazing whatever the task – editing images in Laptop mode, video chatting in Stand mode, watching movies in Tent mode or online shopping in Tablet mode. Built with durable Gorilla Glass, this screen is designed to hold up to wherever users go.
While videos look stunning, the YOGA 3 Pro makes them sound just as spectacular with premium JBL® speakers with Waves® Audio, which automatically adjusts the audio in each of the four modes so that when the speakers are not facing the user, the audio still sounds crisp and clear.
Inside this device is the Intel Core M processor, solid state drive storage up to 512 GB SSD and Intel integrated graphics. Also the YOGA 3 Pro is expected to offer up to nine hours of battery life and connected via high-speed 802.11 a/c WiFi.
