Lenovo has announced a new version of the Yoga Duet 7i, a convertible that we reviewed last year. So far, Lenovo has only revealed the Yoga Duet 7 2021 in China, but we would expect the company to release it elsewhere, too. The new model is almost indistinguishable from its predecessor, but there a few fundamental changes under the hood.

On the one hand, Lenovo has ditched the Comet Lake-U processors it included in last year's Yoga Duet 7i in favour of newer Tiger Lake-U series ones. Specifically, the Yoga Duet 7 2021 will be available with a Core i5-1135G7 or a Core i7-1165G7, a significant improvement on the Core i5-10210U and Core i7-10510U found in the current model.

A bonus of adopting Intel's Tiger Lake platform is Thunderbolt 4, which is present on the new Yoga Duet 7. Additionally, this year's model comes with faster DDR4 RAM, up to 16 GB of it, and a 1 TB M.2 2242 SSD, up from 512 GB in the previous Yoga Duet 7. The 13-inch display remains at 16:10 panel though and continues to operate natively at 2,160 x 1,350 pixels.

The Yoga Duet 7 2021 starts at CNY 6,499 in China, which currently converts to US$1,002, including taxes. The device will be available in China from April 30.
