A promotional video for the Lenovo Yoga Carbon (13") has leaked, confirming that the company has a Tiger Lake ultrabook in the works. The device will feature a QHD 13.3-inch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and up to 16 hours of battery life in a sub-1 kg chassis.

Walking Cat, who recently leaked a Lenovo Yoga dual-screen device, has now published a video about the upcoming Lenovo Yoga Carbon (13"). The laptop features up to a Core i7 Tiger Lake processor, which may well be the Core i7-1165G7. Lenovo mentions that it is "Lower TDP vs STD version", so it could be another chip altogether. From the short video, which we have embedded below, we have been able to glean the following specifications:

Lenovo Yoga Carbon (13")
CPU Up to 11th Gen Intel Core i7 (Tiger Lake)
Display 13.3-inch - 2,560 x 1,600 pixels
16:10 aspect ratio
100% sRGB colour space coverage
Blue-light protection
Dolby Vision
Speakers Harman-branded speakers, Dolby Atmos
Dimensions & Weight 14.25 mm thick
995 g
Battery 50 Wh - Up to 16 hours battery life
Misc Q Control cooling
Amazon Alexa integration
Zero Touch login & Flip to boot
Wi-Fi 6

Q Control, according to a Lenovo press-release where the company appends a hyphen between the two words, is the name for the company's "Intel Cooling Mode". Enabled via a key on the device, Q-Control can "dynamically boost a PC's battery life...to monitor the device's thermal attributes and better control its fan".

We can make out at least one USB Type-C port and a headphone jack too. Oddly, it seems that Lenovo has used images of multiple laptops in this promotional pack. While most of the photos of are a white Yoga laptop, there is a black one with different ports in the "Color-matched backlit keyboard" and "Up to 16 hours of battery 50 Whr" sections.

We have no idea when Lenovo will release this new Yoga Carbon (13"). Since it is a Tiger Lake laptop, we imagine that it will arrive after whenever Intel formally announces the architecture. Acer recently announced a Tiger Lake-powered laptop too, so Lenovo may announce the Yoga Carbon (13") in advance of Intel unveiling Tiger Lake processors.
