After leaked in clear press renders, Lenovo Yoga C930 is a new 2-in-1 portable flagship device now in the news at the IFA 2018. It is the successor to last year’s Yoga 920 and has been designed to be powerful and agile, delivering meaningful innovation, according to the company. With this, the manufacturer aims to make a premium 2-in-1 convertible, powerful and very well packed in term of multimedia.
One of the unique features of the 2-in-q is the rotating soundbar designed into its hinge, allowing for immersive sound no matter which orientation the 2-in-1 is being used in. The unique speaker design supports Dolby Atmos Speaker System for moving audio incompatible media, and Dolby Vision HDR is also supported. The Lenovo Yoga C930 uses Intel’s 8th Gen Core i5-8250U or Core i7-8550U processors and has a 13.9-inch touchscreen with either a full-HD or 4K resolution.
Another extraordinary touch is the ‘Garaged Pen’, which is a significant improvement on last year’s removable plastic clip design. The new stylus slots into the body of the Yoga C930 and will recharge while it is garaged. Lenovo also highlights the Yoga C930’s far-range microphone array which allows for Cortana and Alexa voice commands to be recognized from up to 4m away, even when the device is in standby.
It packs up to 2TB of PCIe SSD storage and up to 16GB of RAM. Also, the display can be configured with a UHD IPS or FHD IPS panel – in both cases, there is the touch interface and the aforementioned Dolby Vision support. On the connectivity front, there is the presence of 1 USB 3.1 port, 2 USB-C, 2×2 802.11 ac WiFi interface and Bluetooth 4.1.
According to the company, the battery life is declared up to 14.5 hours for the model with an FHD display and up to 9 hours for the UHD. Dimensions and weight are 322 x 227 x 14.5 mm (at the thinnest point) and 1.38kg respectively.
Lenovo Yoga Book C930 will be available in Europe and some parts of the world in late September, with starting prices of €1,499 and €999 respectively.
