Lenovo seems to be taking note of Huawei’s popular MateBook X Pro, and its recently announced Yoga S940 laptop at CES 2019 in Las Vegas. It relies on Windows 10 in combination with artificial intelligence (AI), which filters out about ambient noise during video calls.
For smartphones, screens that wrap around the edges are nothing new, but for notebooks, there was not that yet – so far: Lenovo’s 1.2 kilograms lightweight 14-inch notebook Yoga S940 has a glass screen cover, which is on the sides bent back towards the edge of the lid.
The bend begins outside the visible area, so you get the full resolution plan to face. Depending on the model, there will be Full HD or 4K resolution. The former should allow up to 15 hours of battery life, with the 4K option pulled the value is halved.
The inside of the notebook presented at the CES includes a four-core processor from Intel (Whiskey Lake-U), which supports up to 16GB of LPDDR3 memory and SSDs up to 1TB. Three USB-C sockets are available as interfaces, two of which speak not only USB but also Thunderbolt and DisplayPort. The USB-C power adapter can be connected to all three.
Above the screen are not only a Windows Hello-capable IR camera but also proximity sensors: If the user moves away, the screen is automatically locked. Lenovo assigns the latter function to its Smart Assist utility, which, among other things, also hides the background during video calls and can move open windows to other screens. Lenovo Yoga S940 will be sold starting from May at a starting price of $1500.
