Lenovo has announced the successor to last year’s Yoga 910, the Yoga 920, a day before IFA 2017 kicks off. The new device focuses on providing a better experience with future computing methods such as pen input and artificial intelligence.

Specifically, the Yoga 920 is compatible with a new Lenovo Active Pen 2 which supports up to 4,096 levels of sensitivity. It features a shortcut for quickly accessing a function on one’s computer and is sold separately. Regarding the latter, Lenovo is optimizing how Cortana is used on this laptop by allowing it to work in standby mode. Plus, you’ll now be able to say, “Hey, Cortana” from up to four meters away which should make interacting with the digital assistant a bit more useful.

Not only that, but this laptop is pretty powerful. You can configure it with up to an 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, while all configurations come with a near bezel-less 13.9-inch 4K IPS display. There are two Thunderbolt 3 ports for data transfers, a fingerprint scanner for interaction with Windows Hello, and Lenovo’s signature watchband hinge for flipping the screen on the Yoga 920 up to 360 degrees. In addition, while listening to music or other audio, you’ll enjoy the tuning of Dolby Audio for better overall sound quality. (It’s worth noting Dolby Audio will be shipping with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update which will begin rolling out October 17th, 2017). Finally, the laptop is compatible with the company’s just-introduced Lenovo Explorer Windows Mixed Reality headset.

Not only will the device come in its normal all-metal unibody, but Lenovo will also be releasing Gorilla Glass-covered models with special Star Wars designs. We expect to hear more about these variants soon.

Pricing and availability have yet to be determined surrounding the Yoga 920. We’ll update this post with more information when it comes in.
