Lenovo announces the Yoga 16s in China with a crispy nearly-bezelless display


Another Yoga laptop with a surely high price.

Lenovo previously announced the Yoga Slim 7 Pro. It’s a 2-in-1 laptop with an OLED touchscreen screen, top-notch AMD Ryzen processors and comes with Lenovo Go accessories for ecosystem purposes. The company is again releasing another laptop for the Yoga line, the Yoga 16s. It’s an ultrabook, and will probably break the screen if users ever try flipping it 360┬░ like a tablet.

The Yoga 16s is one of the first laptops that Lenovo has introduced into the newly-rebooted Yoga series. Previously, they have rebooted the Ideapad series in India, which now includes two flexible Chromebooks. The main selling point of the laptop is the ultraslim 16in. nearly-bezelless display. Hence the reason why it’s called the Yoga 16s.

This display has an impressive 2560x1600px resolution, and with included support for 100% sRGB colour gamut and HDR support, as well as coming with a fairly bright 500nits of brightness. This would make drawing, photography, videography and graphic design more accurate and have true-to-life colours.

Like the Slim 7 Pro, the Yoga 16s comes with an AMD Ryzen chipset. Internationally, its main counterpart is the more mobile Yoga 13s and 14s, which, as stated from the name, come with a smaller 13in and 14in. screen respectively. According to a post made by Lenovo on Weibo, the laptop would use a Ryzen 7-5800H processor coupled with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 dedicated GPU. We also expect a Ryzen 3 and/or Ryzen 5 variant as well. A Ryzen 9 variant is less likely.

As the laptop has been very recently announced, we will expect more from the company, especially regarding its screen type, battery capacity and charging rate, ports and other features such as Windows 11 eligibility, fingerprint sensor and a backlit keyboard.
