Last year Lenovo revealed the Yoga 910, the world’s thinnest convertible touchscreen device. It’s expected that they’ll be showcasing the new Yoga 6 Pro (aka Yoga 920), the successor to the Yoga 910, at IFA 2017. However, leaks have already surfaced for the Lenovo Yoga 920 convertible.
Engineers at the FCC have recently published new documents for the Yoga 920 which will be available in two variants once it hits the market. These models include the Lenovo 920-13IKB Glass (which will have a screen consisting of a larger glass layer), and the Lenovo 920-13IKB.
For starters, the Yoga 6 Pro will come equipped with new Intel Coffee Lake 8th generation processors. Intel has claimed that their newest processors, which are manufactured using Intel’s 3rd generation enhanced 14nm++ process, will provide up to 30% performance boosts and will also be more power efficient. Options will include either a Intel Core i7-8550U quad-core 1.8GHz, or Intel Core i5-8250U quad-core 1.6GHz processor.
Other notable specs and features include your choice of either 8GB, 12GB, or 16GB or DDR4 RAM, an almost bezel-less 13.9-inch HD touchscreen with 4K pixel resolution, along with either a 1TB M.2 PCIe or 256GB SSD. The Yoga 920 will also support the latest in connectivity with two USB Type-C ports, one USB Type-A port, Qualcomm Atheros qcnfa344a WiFi 802.11ac, as well as Bluetooth 4.1. It will also come bundled with an Activates Wacom pen. Some say Lenovo is closing the gap between Microsoft’s Surface Pro with their upcoming Yoga 6 Pro.
The Lenovo Yoga 6 Pro convertible notebook / tablet is expected to have a price tag around the $1,300 range once it hits the market.
