Lenovo confirms IFA 2017 keynote set for August 31st
Sony isn't the only manufacturer to have reserved a keynote spot at this year's IFA event. Lenovo has just sent out press invites for its own keynote taking place on the very same day as Sony's on August 31st in Berlin. Unfortunately, the invite makes no hints or teasers about any potential announcements or products.
Despite the lack of any clues, we can predict that the keynote will not likely focus on Moto smartphones as Lenovo is already dedicating an entire Motorola launch event on July 25th in New York. Most, if not all, Motorola-related announcements will already be known well ahead of IFA 2017. Smartphones directly under the Lenovo Brand, such as the ZUK series, could still potentially make an appearance at IFA. The New York event is definitely a surprise considering that the Motorola brand has been a sinking ship for the Chinese manufacturer.
A more probable expectation is the reveal of multiple new convertibles and unique notebooks. Successors to the popular Yoga convertible or the keyboard-free Yoga Book, for example, could be in the works. Curved and foldable tablet concepts teased during last year's Lenovo Tech World in San Francisco could make more thorough appearances as well.
