Lenovo launches 13.3-inch Yoga 6 convertible with Renoir-U APUs and metal+cloth hybrid design
Together with the new Yoga Slim 7 Pro models, Lenovo is also launching the Yoga 6 convertibles powered by AMD’s Renoir-U APUs. One of the highlights for this new series is the unique hybrid design of metal and soft-touch materials wrapped in a textured blue fabric.
The specs are not as impressive as what we see on the Yoga Slim 7 Pro, but users can still opt between a Ryzen 5 4500U and a Ryzen 7 4700U with integrated Vega iGPUs, which can be coupled with either 8 GB or 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 1 TB of NVMe SSD storage. The 13.3-inch touchscreen is only FHD, but comes with good specs like 72% NTSC color gamut, 300 nits peak luminance and wide view angles.
Other noteworthy features include stereo Dolby Atmos SW speakers, fingerprint reader, backlit keyboard and webcam with TrueBlock Privacy Shutter system, plus an optional digital pen. The new Yoga 6 supports dual band Wi-Fi 6 + Bluetooth 5.0 and the port selection offers 1x USB-C 3.1 (with charging), 1x USB-C 3.1 (DisplayPort mode/data transfer mode), 2x USB-A 3.1, and an audio jack.
With the included 60 Wh battery, the Yoga 6 convertible is supposed to last up to 18 hours. Thanks to the unique combination of materials used for the design of the chassis, the convertible weighs around 2.9 lbs.
Prices for the Ryzen 5 4500U model start at €899 (including VAT) and Lenovo mentions that availability is scheduled for this October. Note that the prices are in Euro as these models appear to only be launching in the EMEA region.
