The sale date for the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 ultrabook featuring an AMD Ryzen 7 4800U APU has been announced. Apparently, public sales will begin on May 16 with a pre-sale starting on May 11. The AMD-based Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 was originally expected to be released in April but was delayed, possibly due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Weibo site for Lenovo Yoga has revealed when the AMD Ryzen 4000 Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 laptop will finally go on sale. The date to mark on calendars is May 16; however, this may just be for Lenovo’s domestic market of China as the announcement was made on a Chinese-language social network. But a global release for the ultrabook should be expected soon.

The same post also states that there will be a public pre-sale for the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 that will begin on May 11. One configuration of the upcoming 14-inch device, which is fitted with the AMD Ryzen 7 4800U, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD, and integrated Radeon Graphics, will be initially priced at 4,999 yuan (US$708) before rising to its normal price of 5,499 yuan (US$779).

The UK website for Lenovo has the 14-inch variant of the Yoga Slim 7 (AMD) listed simply as “coming soon” and gives users the opportunity to sign up for notifications. It is believed the delay in availability of the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 was caused directly and indirectly by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, including factors such as lockdowns and supply issues. The Yoga Slim 7 with AMD Ryzen 7 4800 APU has already shown itself off to be something of a performance star, so it should be worth the additional wait. The laptop is expected to have a starting price of US$850 when it finally comes to the US market.
