Tech

The all-new Lenovo Yoga S940 comes with a new curved glass display making the bezels impossibly thin.

CES 2019 is just getting underway and Lenovo isn’t done launching new products. The company just unveiled their AI-enabled Yoga PCs along with the new Yoga Mouse. I have a feeling that we’re going to hear a lot about AI-enabled devices from many verticals in the consumer technology market.

As technology continues to get safer, smarter, more personalized, and immersive. It makes sense that company’s are diving into AI-enabled devices. Artificial intelligence (AI) coupled with advanced audio and display technologies are making Lenovo’s next-gen Yoga computers their smartest yet. Whether you’re a digital nomad, business professional, digital content creator or designer, see how these technologies in the new Yoga S940, Yoga A940, Yoga C730 with AMOLED and Yoga Mouse with Laser Presenter can help you get things done faster and make life easier.

Let’s check out the new AI-enabled lineup that Lenovo is bringing to consumers in 2019!

The Lenovo Yoga S940

AI-enabled
The all new Yoga S940 with curved glass.

With the rise of work-life integration, remote work and the gig economy, video meetings and conference calls can happen anytime, anywhere – sometimes in environments that are less than ideal, from a noisy coffee shop to a crowded co-working space. But what if your laptop can solve that when you’re on your next video call with the boss?

The new Yoga S940 ultra-slim laptop can do just that and more. Its new optional AI features can automatically filter out ambient noise and blur out distracting backgrounds during video calls so that your dog’s barking or the neighbor’s car honking don’t have to disrupt video calls with colleagues, friends or family again.

Camping out at a co-working space and need to step out for a coffee break? The minute you turn your head away from your laptop screen, the Yoga S940’s AI sensors1 can detect your absence and auto-lock the display to protect your data from unwanted eyes. It can also detect and alert you when a nosey neighbor is shoulder surfing from your screen.

Lightweight and powerful.

Beyond the added benefits of security and privacy, the Yoga S940 has Glance by Mirametrix attention-sensing AI technology that can help increase productivity too. Look from your main laptop display to a second screen, and it can automatically track your movement and shift open windows and content to a connected external monitor for a seamless and intuitive user experience. All these are part of an entire suite of Lenovo Smart Assist AI-enabled features available on the new Yoga S940.

Additionally, Lenovo Smart Assist includes hands-free PC log-in through its built-in infrared (IR) camera and Windows Hello for an added layer of security and convenience, and voice-matching personalization to respond to just your voice when speaking to Amazon Alexa or Microsoft Cortana from across the room.

AI-enabled
Beautiful design.

The Yoga S940 keeps getting smarter too, able to learn from your usage patterns and optimize its performance. It can learn to auto-adjust its power settings for longer-lasting power, for instance, so that you get every last squeeze out of the up to 15 hours of battery in FHD. Plus, the Yoga S940 is the world’s first laptop with Contour Glass that wraps around its bezels – reducing the look of its already razor-thin bezels for a streamlined design.

Lenovo Yoga A940

The A940 is designed for artists and designers.

For artists and designers, nothing is better than sketching with a pencil on paper, right? The new Yoga A940 all-in-one desktop is here to challenge that notion. Built for digital content creators, the Windows 10 Yoga A940 is a powerful creative canvas with a large 27-inch optional 4K IPS touchscreen display with Dolby Vision, which brings entertainment to life through ultra-vivid picture quality. It features a rotating hinge that enables the display to tilt to a comfortable 25-degree drafting mode, for remarkable flexibility and stability when drawing, sketching or annotating with a digital pen.

A mouse and digital pen are all convenient ways of inputting information on your computer with one hand. But wouldn’t it be even faster and more productive to be able to multitask with both hands? Introducing the Lenovo Precision Dial, a controller that’s tailor-made for designers, photographers and videographers to make precise selections and adjustments to their content. The dial can be placed on either the left or right side of the Yoga A940, depending on your preference.

The Lenovo A940 is certainly stunning.

Simply scroll the Lenovo Precision Dial to seamlessly select or adjust features like brush stroke, tip size, opacity, and flow rate on one hand, without having to put down your digital pen. The dial is currently optimized for Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Lightroom7 and Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

Time to watch that video project you’ve been working on? Experience it on the Yoga A940’s Dolby Vision-enabled 4K wide-angle display with stunning brightness, contrast, color, and detail, which are boosted by Dolby Atmos Speaker System for rich, moving audio through speakers custom designed and tuned by Dolby.
