Lenovo has finally announced the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon, but it will not be making its way to North America. Similarly, the machine may not even be released in Europe. The sub-1 kg ultrabook features a 16:10 QHD display, Tiger Lake processors, a 50 Wh battery and a tonne of memory.

Lenovo has unveiled the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon, its compact Tiger Lake ultrabook. According to Liliputing, Lenovo does not have any plans to bring the machine to North America. However, it will be available in Australia, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Thailand, and Vietnam from this month. Pricing for these countries remains unknown, though. It is also unclear whether the device will make its way to Europe.

As expected, the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon has a 13.3-inch display with a QHD resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio. The 2,560 x 1,600-pixel panel corresponds to a 91% screen-to-body ratio, but Lenovo has still found space for a Windows Hello IR camera. Powering the machine is 'up to' a Core i7 Tiger Lake processor, although it remains unknown exactly what CPUs Lenovo will offer for the device.

However, Lenovo has confirmed that the Yoga Slim 7i Carbon will be available with up to a 1 TB M.2 PCIe SSD and 16 GB of LPDDR4X dual-channel RAM. Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 support is also on board, as are two Thunderbolt 4 ports and a USB 3.0 Gen 1 Type-C port.

The Yoga Slim 7i Carbon will only be available in Moon White and weighs less than 1 kg thanks to its carbon fibre chassis. Lenovo has still included a 50 Wh battery that can charge at up to 65 W, though. The machine measures 296.9 x 208.6 mm and 14.9 mm at its thickest point, too.
