CES 2019: Lenovo Launches AI-Enabled Yoga PCs & Smart Home Devices


At CES 2019, Lenovo is looking to make your life easier and more convenient with AI-enabled Yoga PCs with Lenovo Smart Assist, as well as a Smart Clock with Google Assistant and a Smart Tab with Amazon Alexa.

14" Yoga S940 Laptop

The Yoga S940 features a 4K IPS HDR display with Dolby Vision for a high-res, vibrant viewing experience. The screen also features Contour Glass that wraps around the display for smoother edges and minimizes the appearance of the narrow bezels. The Yoga S940 also features Lenovo Smart Assist, which anticipates your needs. Move content from your display to a monitor with a turn of your head. Log into your computer with just a look. Opt to have your background blurred while on an important video call. Lenovo Smart Assist can do it all. It can even detect when you're not looking or away from your laptop and lock the display to prevent others from looking at your screen. There's also a new simultaneous language transcription and translation feature, so any words spoken in English or Mandarin Chinese can be automatically transcribed into writing and then translated.

27" Yoga A940 All-in-One Desktop Computer

Designed for artists and designers, the Yoga A940 is a powerful creative canvas with a large 27" optional 4K IPS touchscreen with Dolby Vision for high-res, high brightness, contrast, color, and detail. The screen is on a rotating hinge to enable the display to tilt to a 25° drafting mode, which provides flexibility and stability when drawing and sketching with a digital pen. While you could use a keyboard and mouse with the Yoga A940, Lenovo introduced the Precision Dial, a controller designed for designers, photographers, and pro video editors. As its name suggests, the Precision Dial allows you to make precise adjustments while working on content. The dial caters to your preference because it can be placed on either the right or left side of the Yoga A940. Remember the Lenovo Smart Assist on the Yoga S940? You'll also find it here on the Yoga S940.

15.6" Yoga C730 Laptop with an AMOLED Display

Get an immersive visual experience with the Yoga C730 laptop and its 15.6" 4K AMOLED display. AMOLED brings a vivid viewing experience, complete with color clarity and contrast at 4K resolution. The screen also emits less harmful blue light, which makes it easier on the eyes while still providing high video quality. The Yoga C730 didn't forget about audio. Equipped with JBL speakers and Dolby Atmos support, the Yoga C730 provides immersive sound over any pair of compatible headphones. The Yoga C730 will be available with 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Windows Ink for digital pen input, Windows Hello for instant, secure log-in, and support for Microsoft Cortana and Amazon Alexa.

15.6" and 17.3" Legion Y740 Laptops

Following NVIDIA's announcement, the new Lenovo Legion 15.6" and 17.3" Y740 laptops will have NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards, with up to an RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU on the 15.6" model and an RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU on the 17.3" model. Both models come with 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processors, up to 32GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM, and 100% anti-ghosting Corsair iCUE RGB backlit keyboard and system lighting. The Y740 features the Dolby Atmos Speaker System with Dolby Sound Radar for rich, moving audio, thanks to the custom speakers designed by Dolby. Can't stand screen tearing? The Y740 will be available with a Full HD 1080p 144 Hz display with optional NVIDIA G-SYNC. With support of Dolby Vision and a brighter screen, at up to 500 nits, the Legion Y740 provides clear, vibrant picture quality.

15.6" Legion Y540 Laptop

With up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 GPU, the Legion Y540 provides the power you need to game at Full HD 1080p. The Y540 also features a white backlit keyboard and Harman Kardon speakers with Dolby Atmos support.

43.4" Legion Y44w Ultrawide Monitor

With ultrawide 3840 x 1200 resolution and peak brightness of 450 nits, the Legion Y44w monitor captures every frame of your gameplay, thanks to its 144 Hz refresh rate. Equipped with VESA-certified DisplayHDR 400 and AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 technology, you'll be able to play your favorite games without worrying about screen tearing.

27" Legion Y27gq Monitor with 240 Hz Refresh Rate

Need even more frames? The Legion Y27gq has QHD 2560 x 1440 resolution and insane 240 Hz refresh rate. Coupled with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, the Y27gq will make sure your gameplay is smooth, fast, and free of screen tearing and stuttering. You don't have to worry about input lag either, thanks to its 0.5 ms response time. The Y27gq is ideal for first-person shooters (FPS), multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA), and fighting games, where every frame counts.

Yoga Mouse with Laser Presenter

Lenovo decided to make life easier for traveling professionals, professors, and others, with the Yoga Mouse with Laser Presenter. By streamlining two accessories together, the Yoga Mouse can convert from an ergonomic mouse with a 1600 dpi sensor into a laser presenter, with just one twist. Need to switch back to the mouse? Just twist it again. The Yoga Mouse is easy to use and saves space in your bag.

Smart Clock with Google Assistant

Lenovo collaborated with Google to create the Smart Clock. Designed for your bedroom, the Smart Clock helps cultivate better sleeping habits and makes mornings easier. With the built-in Google Assistant, you can set up sleep routines, such as dimming the lights and displaying your first calendar event on its 4" IPS touchscreen by simply saying "Hey Google, Good Night." When it's time to get up, the Smart Clock doesn't resort to blaring alarms and flashing lights. Instead, it opts for a more pleasant and refreshing wake-up routine by setting your lights to get progressively brighter and your alarm to get gradually louder, 30 minutes before your scheduled time. Of course, you can customize your morning alarm to tell you what the weather is like, your personal agenda and reminders, as well as any traffic reports. Sleeping in today? Simply tap the Smart Clock to snooze or dismiss your alarm. The Smart Clock is compact, but still has a full-range 6W speaker and two passive radiators so it can fill up a large bedroom with audio. You can also add the Smart Clock to a home speaker group and play music across multiple devices in several rooms. Do you have a Chromecast? You can use the Smart Clock to stream shows and music on your TV or speakers with just your voice, courtesy of Google Assistant. Worried that Google might always be listening to you? There's a hardware mute switch on the back for added privacy.

Smart Tabs powered by Amazon Alexa

Keeping with the smart home theme, Lenovo also teamed up with Amazon to create the Smart Tab, a full-featured Android tablet that doubles as a hub for smart home devices. Designed for your home, the Smart Tab can be placed into a Smart Dock, which transforms it into a "Show Mode" smart screen device, complete with full-screen visuals and room-filling audio. Pairing the Smart Tab and the Smart Dock together opens new, easier ways of managing your smart home devices.
