Lenovo has announced an OLED variant of the Yoga Slim 7i Pro that was originally introduced last year. The Yoga Slim 7i Pro's OLED display comes in a 16:10 aspect ratio and offers a 90 Hz refresh rate with 100% DCI-P3 coverage and Dolby Vision HDR support. Powering the Evo-certified Yoga Slim 7i Pro is an Intel Tiger Lake processor and NVIDIA GeForce MX450 graphics.

Lenovo offers the 14-inch Yoga Slim 7 in both Intel and AMD variants. We have previously reviewed the Yoga Slim 7 powered by AMD Ryzen 7 4800U and the Ryzen 7 4700U and also the SKU powered by the Core i7-1065G7. Last year, Lenovo also introduced an Intel Tiger Lake-powered Yoga Slim 7i while also showing off the Yoga Slim 7i Pro.

At CES 2021, Lenovo is once again talking about the Yoga Slim 7i Pro. The 14-inch Yoga Slim 7i Pro was originally announced with an IPS display. Today, Lenovo is introducing an OLED version of the laptop with largely similar internals as before.

Like its LCD cousin, the new Yoga Slim 7i Pro OLED is also Intel Evo-certified. This naturally means that the 7i Pro features 11th gen Tiger Lake processors up to the Core i7, Thunderbolt 4, and other niceties associated with the Evo platform such as instant wake from standby, hands-free login, and long battery life.

The 16:10 OLED panel sports a 2.8K (2,880 x 1,800) resolution with a 90 Hz refresh rate. Lenovo says the new OLED panel can offer a 667x better picture compared to the LCD panel. We are not sure how exactly Lenovo ascertained this, but we should get to know when we get to test the laptop.

The company also says that the Yoga Slim 7i Pro's OLED panel covers 100% DCI-P3 and 125% sRGB color spaces. There is no panel brightness specified, but Lenovo states Dolby Vision HDR support is present as is 70% blue light reduction without drastically affecting the colors.

Other specs include an NVIDIA GeForce MX450 GPU, up to 16 GB RAM, up to 1 TB NVMe SSD options, and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. 2x USB Type-C Thunderbolt 4 ports, 1x USB Type-A, and a combo audio jack complete the port selection. A 61 WHr battery powers the innards.

Pricing and availability of the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro OLED will be announced at a later date.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
