CES 2022 | Lenovo Yoga 6 launched with a 16:10 screen and AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors
Lenovo unveiled the Yoga 6 earlier last year with AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors and an interesting fabric-based chassis. Lenovo has now relaunched the laptop at CES 2022 with a 16:10 screen and a lot less denim. It costs a tad more than the older model, but that's ok, given the extra screen real estate.
The Lenovo Yoga 6 packs a 13.3-inch WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) touch-enabled screen with a brightness of 300 nits and 100% sRGB colour gamut coverage. A 2MP camera with a privacy shutter on the top enables Windows Hello functionality.
Not a whole lot has changed under the Lenovo Yoga 6's innards. It packs AMD Ryzen 5 5500U/Ryzen 7 5700U processors, coupled with 16GB RAM and 1TB storage. Lenovo claims that the laptop's 59Wh battery offers up to 17 hours of video playback, a claim that is corroborated by our in-depth review of its predecessor.
Input options on the Lenovo Yoga 6 are a tad limited given its compact form factor. We get two USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C ports, two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A ports, an HDMI port, an SD card reader, a NOVO button and a combo audio jack. On the wireless side of things, the laptop supports Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6.
Despite the larger screen, the Lenovo Yoga 6 weighs more or less the same as its predecessor (1.3kgs/3lbs). Its 360-degree hinge allows the laptop to double up as a tablet. However, the retail packaging does not include a stylus, which must be added on separately. Lenovo rounds things off by stating that the new Yoga 6 model will hit shelves in Q2 2022, starting at US$749.
