Lenovo has launched Yoga 920 Vibes, a limited edition premium convertible notebook, in India with a price tag of Rs 1,27,150 excluding Goods and Service Tax (GST). As the name suggests, the newly launched Yoga 920 Vibes is the direct successor to Yoga 910, and it sits at the top of the price spectrum in Lenovo’s Yoga series.
The Yoga 920 and Yoga 920 Vibes were first showcased at IFA 2017 in Berlin in late August, and makes use of Intel’s newest 8th generation Core processors. Like it’s predecessor, the Yoga 920 series sports a 13.9-inch touchscreen display with 4K UHD (3840×2160 pixels) resolution, and comes with support for an option stylus with 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and low lag.
Lenovo’s new laptop is powered by Intel Core i7-8550U, a quad-core processor with eight threads, 6MB L3 cache and maximum clock frequency of 4GHz. While both the 7th as well as 8th generation chipsets are based on Kaby Lake architecture, Intel claims the new chipsets offer 40 percent boost in performance over its predecessor. The Yoga 920 also comes with 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD storage, which not only helps with fast boot but also super fast data transfer and overall performance.
In terms of design, Lenovo is retaining the watchband hinge first seen with the launch of Yoga 3 Pro in 2014, but it has been toughened and streamlined to work better and offer lower friction on Yoga 920. It features metal unibody chassis, but the limited edition Vibes model comes with textured Corning Gorilla Glass on top of the front casing, giving it a premium and distinct appearance.
The Yoga 920 offers two Thunderbolt 3 ports with Power Delivery, which means it is also the default port for charging. Apart from that, there is one regular USB 3.0 port with always-on charging and 3.5mm audio jack. Lenovo claims the Yoga 920 will last for 10 hours but it needs to be tested to understand the battery capacity varies in different work scenario.
Lenovo Yoga 920 supports connectivity options like dual channel Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and Bluetooth 4.2 for playing wireless music. It features dedicated fingerprint sensor for Windows Hello login, and JBL-tuned speakers with Dolby Audio support. The notebook weighs around 1.37kg, which makes it 30 grams lighter than its predecessor.
