Known as the Lenovo Flex 4 in the US, the 2-in-1 device is receiving a CPU upgrade, smaller bezels, and a larger SSD capacity limit. Lenovo will likely reveal price and availability at MWC later this month.

Lenovo’s upcoming successor to the Lenovo Flex 4/Yoga 510 briefly appeared on the company’s website, providing users with plenty of details about the improvements that were made before the page was taken down. This improved convertible notebook, apparently called the Yoga 520, will allow users to choose between a 14-inch and a 15.6-inch screen, upgrade RAM up to 16GB and upgrade the CPU up to a Core i7 Kaby Lake processor.

The specs do not provide details on the 15.6-inch panel, but the 14-inch one is a 1920x1080 pixel display. Lenovo says that the 2-in-1 will have substantially smaller bezels to improve the viewing experience, downsizing from 12.3mm to 7.6mm. On the whole, the laptop’s dimensions have been reduced ever so slightly to 12.9 x 9.0 x 0.8 inches, down from 13.24 x 9.13 x 0.82 inches on the older model. The convertible notebook also comes with an optional fingerprint reader, a 360-degree hinge and support for Lenovo’s stylus, the Active Pen.

Prices for the current 14-inch Lenovo Flex 4 vary from $370 to $950 depending on the configuration. Additional information about pricing and availability will likely be announced at MWC later this month, where Lenovo is also expected to launch the Yoga 720 convertible notebook and the Miix 320 2-in-1 tablet.

I joined Notebookcheck at the end of 2016 after being a dedicated reader of the website for the past six years, occasionally tuning out various lecturers to read reviews of the latest gaming and business laptops. As a writer and tech enthusiast, I focus mostly on smartphones, the latest trending gadgets like VR headsets, and the businesses that create it all. When I’m not admiring the latest graphics cards, I write short fiction and arrange for a cappella.
