Despite being in the middle of August, manufacturers of technological devices are not resting. On the contrary, they continue to prepare their new products for presentation at IFA 2020. Although this year’s event in Berlin will be very atypical, the truth is that it is still an important date in the calendar. Fortunately, some manufacturers are not waiting for the fair and are bringing some of their new products forward a few days in advance. This was the case with Lenovo, which today presented five new laptops from its Yoga line. One of them is the new Lenovo Yoga 6, a laptop with a sleek fabric-covered design and an AMD Ryzen 7 4700U processor inside.
The newest addition to Lenovo’s Yoga line is a convertible with a 13.3-inch screen. It has SSD storage, a weight of just over 1.3 kg, and a battery with up to 18 hours of autonomy. In other words, this is a very interesting device for professionals and students who require a powerful computer without giving up portability. Let’s take a look at the best features of the new Lenovo Yoga 6.
An Innovative Design and Updated Technical Set
The first thing that catches the eye about the new Lenovo Yoga 6 is its exterior design. It has a blue fabric cover that is very reminiscent of denim. This versatile 2-in-1 has subtly rounded edges designed to make the device feel comfortable in your hands, with a 360° hinge designed to provide stability during the switch between tablet and laptop mode.
The Yoga 6 has a 13.3-inch screen with FHD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels). It offers a maximum brightness of 300 nits, a coverage of 72% of NTSC space, and an AAR of 88%. It weighs 1.32 kg, so this is a device that we can easily carry with us throughout the day.
Beneath the hood of the Yoga 6 is the new AMD Ryzen 4000 Series processor. Specifically, there are two versions available, one with the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U and one with the AMD Ryzen 7 4700U, both with Radeon graphics.
Accompanying the processor are 8 or 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB, 512 GB, or 1 TB of SSD PCIe M.2 storage. Also, the computer has stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos technology, fingerprint reader, webcam with Privacy Shutter, and backlit keyboard.
In addition to all this, the device has a 60 WHr battery that offers, according to the manufacturer’s data, up to 18 hours of autonomy. That is, we can have a battery for a long day of work and study and still have enough for our leisure time.
Finally, the Lenovo Yoga 6 has some smart features designed to help us in our daily lives. In addition to the long battery life, the device has an intelligent cooling system that optimizes performance based on the power needs of the device. And Yoga 6 is compatible with Alexa and now has improved UI and expanded features.
Price and Availability
In short, Yoga 6 comes to become a very good alternative for users who need a light and powerful machine for their day-to-day mobility. The equipment comes with the new AMD processor and has very good connectivity, with WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0. On a physical level, it includes two USB 3.1 Type C ports, two USB 3.1 ports, and a headset connection.
The Lenovo Yoga 6 with a 13.3-inch screen and AMD Ryzen 7 4700U processor will hit the market in October 2020 with a price tag starting at $900.
