Lenovo announces new Yoga products for 2019

While not as arguably sleek as the Surface Studio, the Yoga A940 offers every bit of power and functionality of top tier desktops, fully equipped with four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0, one USB 3.1 and one Thunderbolt port as well as 3-in-1 card reader and audio jack.

The Lenovo Yoga S940 (image above) will be priced starting $1,499.99 when it will become available in May 2019.

Aside from the beefier specs, the other standout highlight of the S940 is the new Contour Glass Lenovo is using that wraps around the display, adding an nearly iPhone 10 X-like display quality to the laptop. It runs on Intel's 8th generation Core i7 processor and can be configured with either 8- or 16GB of RAM.

The display is a 13.9-inch panel with UHD resolution of 3840 x 2400 pixels, or FHD 1920 x 1080 resolution. It has integrated UHD 620 graphics from Intel on a 15.6-inch 4K AMOLED touchscreen. Lenovo notes that the standard FHD display should get up to 15 hours of battery life while the higher resolute 4K display will only eke out 9.5 hours of on-screen time.

The Lenovo Yoga C730 with AMOLED (images above) will set you back $1,649.99 and will be available starting April 2019, but sadly not in the U.S. It's a 2-in-1 convertible that now uses an OLED screen and comes with an Active Pen with more than 4,000 levels of sensitivity.

It also runs on the 8th generation Intel Core i7 platform and can be configured for up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage.

The Lenovo Yoga A940 is due for release in March starting at $2,3499.99.

The new all-in-one PC is based on the same approach like the Surface Studio, coming with a 27-inch 4K display that supports tilting, a content creation dial, and pen input. This more horizontal angle is well suited for drawing and sketching with the included Active Pen 1. In terms of storage, you get up to 1TB 7200 HDD, according to the official website, but an SSD option is likely as well. It also includes a built-in wireless charging station. It's Dolby Vision certified like some of Lenovo's other products, but that doesn't really tell you much about the display.

It also comes with Lenovo Smart Assist features, which include an IR camera for face recognition login, eye tracking content that moves content from the screen to an attached monitor depending on where you're looking, and software that blocks out background sounds when you're making voice and video calls. A swivel hinge at the mouse's mid-point allows it to operate as a V-shaped mouse or a flat laser pointer with slide control for giving PowerPoint presentations.
