Lenovo Yoga 720 and Yoga 520 Laptops Introduced at MWC 2017

The 15-inch variant of the newly-launched Yoga 720 has been termed as "the most powerful convertible in its class" by Lenovo and apart from the seventh-generation Intel processors, comes with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics.

The new e-SIM feature was announced alongside a host of new devices, including the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus smartphones and the Tab 4 series tablets. The Yoga 720 will be available in 13-inch and 15-inch screen variants while the Yoga 520 convertible laptop will be made available with 14-inch and 15-inch screen variants. As for the new Yoga laptops, the 13-inch and 15-inch Yoga 720 will also start shipping in April with prices starting at $859.99 and $1099.99, respectively. The device will be available with up to 16 GB of RAM.

Additionally, Lenovo also debuted its Yoga 720 and Yoga 520 convertible laptops. Yoga 520 (14-inch) will be available starting €599 Euro in July 2017. Security features such as fingerprint scanner as well as active pen support are provided to both the Yoga laptops. On the other hand, the 15-inch variant of the laptop starts at Euro 1,099.99 (roughly Rs. 77,700).

The model features a 10.1-inch display with a resolution up to 1920 x 1200 Full HD (touchscreen).

Connectivity features on the Miix 320 include WiFi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.2, Micro HDMI, microSD, Nano SIM, audio jack, 1 x USB 3.0 Type-C and 1 x USB 2.0. The company revealed its Lenovo Yoga notebooks this week, including a new round of must-have features baked into Windows 10. The model's processor is an Intel Atom X5 unit which is joined by Intel HD Graphics, up to 4GB of memory and up to 128GB of storage, as well as Dolby Advanced Audio, a 5MP rear-based camera and 2MP webcam. The tablet is pretty thin at 9mm but with the dock, the total thickness will jump up to 17.5mm. Detaching the keyboard is easy, and the Miix 320 supports Windows Continuum so that users can pick up right where they left off, as the device automatically adapts to tablet or laptop mode. The press release also said that it can retain up to 10 hours of battery life which, combined with the new connectivity, could make it ideal for long trips out of the country. The normal laptop will ship in April with a pen-enabled version coming in July.
