Leaked Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon listing confirms 16:10 aspect ratio for Tiger Lake laptop with up to 16 GB of RAM and Thunderbolt 4 ports
It has been a few months since WalkingCat provided a first look at Lenovo's next Yoga Carbon laptop, having leaked a product video in June of the device. Since then, Lenovo unveiled the device in China as the Yoga Pro 13s Carbon, but new leaks by WalkingCat suggest that the device will be called the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon.
Carrying over the branding from the Yoga Slim 7 series that Lenovo announced in August, the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon has a 13.3-inch QHD screen with 100% sRGB coverage and a peak brightness of 300 nits. According to a cached product page, Lenovo will offer the 16:10 device with up to 16 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and a 1 TB M.2 PCIe SSD. Added to these components will be 'up to 11th Gen Intel Core i7' processors, which probably means the Core i7-1165G7 or Core i7-1185G7. We would expect Lenovo to sell at least one Core i5 SKU, too.
Underpinning the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon will be a 50 Wh battery that can charge at up to 65 W. The device only has USB Type-C ports, so it would seem as though Lenovo will include a Type-C charger in the box. Two of these Type-C ports also support the new Thunderbolt 4 standard. Additionally, Lenovo has nestled a 3.5 mm headphone jack between a USB Type-C port and a power button.
The power button does not have an integrated fingerprint scanner. However, the cached product page confirms that the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon will have an IR camera for Windows Hello. The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon will apparently weigh 'less than 1kg / 2.2lbs' and will measure 296.9 x 208.5 mm and 14.9 mm at its thickest point.
The cached product page does not reveal when Lenovo plans to announce or release the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon. Equally, it offers no indication of how much the device will cost when it finally goes on sale. The publication of the listing implies that Lenovo is close to finally unveiling the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon, though.
