The hull and the internal hardware of the new Lenovo Yoga 900, a powerful convertible similar to the Yoga 3 Pro, are now public, thanks to the German website WinFuture.
Thanks to German website WinFuture, we have the opportunity to see the new, still unannounced Lenovo Yoga 900, that was partially unveiled in late August by French store FNAC. It is a high-end Skylake-U convertible Tablet PC that uses the aesthetic of the Yoga 3 Pro, designed to fight against the HP Spectre 13 x360.
Like the fanless Yoga 3 Pro, the new Yoga 900, that will be announced in a Lenovo dedicated event next month, is a stylish ultra-thin convertible 2-in-1. The two devices’ hulls are very similar but the new model is thicker and heavier because of the larger battery and the more powerful, vents-cooled 6th-Gen Intel Core i5/i7 processors.
Official images confirm the presence of a USB Type-C port (a first-time for a Yoga device) three full-size USB, microHDMI and SD reader. The Yoga 900 uses a Samsung PenTile display with capacitive digitizer, internal connectivity shows 802.11WiFi but no WWAN support.
The full datasheet shows:
- Intel Core i7-6500U or i5-6200U processors
- Intel HD520 graphics
- Up to 16 GB of LPDDR3 RAM
- 256 or 512 GB SSD
- 13.3-inch PenTile display (3200×1800), 300 nits
- Passive-capacitive digitizer
- JBL stereo speakers
- 2x USB 3.0, USB 2.0, USB-C, microHDMI, SD, audio combo
- WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth
- 720p webcam
- Backlit keyboard
- 66 Wh, 7.6 V battery
- Weight: 1290 grams
- Dimensions: 324 x 225 x 14,9 mm
The new device, that will be sold side-by-side with the Yoga 3 Pro (and its Core m7 successor) will probably arrive worldwide just before Christmas with a $1.200 starting price.
