Mobile World Congress 2017: Lenovo unveils new devices built for mobility
Today, Lenovo announced at Mobile World Congress a new lineup of devices and services with Windows 10 built for mobility.
Lenovo’s new devices include the detachable Miix 320 – blending affordability with connectivity on-the-go – and two convertible 2-in-1 PCs: the mobile powerhouses Yoga 720 and 520.
Lenovo also announced an enhancement to Lenovo Connect with support for reprogrammable e-SIMs, which on select Windows LTE enabled devices, will allow customers to take advantage of their local Telco contract for data when at home and the best local wireless pricing, when they are roaming, without having to swap out their SIM.
Yoga Convertibles with Windows 10 balance design, performance and mobility
For people who want the full power and productivity of a PC in a thin and light machine, Lenovo built the Yoga 720 and 520, available in 13, 14 and 15-inch models, each weighing less than five pounds.
The 15-inch Yoga 720 comes with up to the latest 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processors, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 discrete graphics, blazing-fast Thunderbolt 3 and up to nine hours of battery life.
Coupled with an ultra-responsive touchscreen, the new Yoga 720 and Yoga 520 both offer optional active pen support for editing, note-taking and sketching on Windows Ink for more authentic personal expression. Lenovo also added an advanced integrated fingerprint reader on the Yoga 720, as well as making it an option on the Yoga 520, allowing you to swiftly and securely log onto your new Yoga convertibles through Windows Hello with a built-in fingerprint reader.
The Lenovo Miix 320 detachable for mobile professionals
To continue offering professionals the versatility they need, Lenovo built the new Lenovo Miix 320 – a lightweight Windows 10 detachable with up to 10 hours of battery life. Use it as a laptop with its up to FHD 10.1-inch display for work, or detach and use it as a portable tablet on-the-go, and connect nearly anywhere with its optional LTE. Continuum will automatically adapt it to laptop or tablet mode – making the multimode transitions seamless.
