Lenovo has added a new member to their Yoga series in India with the launch of the premium, ultra-slim Yoga S940. The laptop has many industry-leading features that make it an uber-cool machine to own – here are the top features of the ultra-portable.
Yoga S940 Configurations:The base configuration of the Lenovo Yoga S940 packs a full-HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) with 400 nits brightness while the top-end variant gets a 4K display with anti-glare panel and 500 nits brightness. The starter variant is powered by 8th-gen Intel Core i5-8265U processor (base clock speed of 1.60GHz and turbo boost frequency of up to 3.90GHz) paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of PCIe NVMe SSD storage. The top variant, on the other hand, is treated with an Intel Core i7-8565U processor (base clock speed of 1.80GHz and a turbo frequency of up to 4.60GHz) paired with up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of NVMe SSD. Lenovo has opted for integrated Intel HD 620 with no option available for upgrading to discrete GPU. A 4-cell 52Whr battery is included which the company claims to offer around 15 hours and also supports RapidCharge to quickly top off the battery.
World’s First Contour Glass ScreenLenovo claims the Yoga S940 is the world’s first laptop with Contour Glass that wraps around its bezels. It gave me a feeling of the premium Smartphone displays and looks really a refreshing display design for a laptop. It also helps to reduce the bezels with a nearly bezel-less design with an impressive 90% screen to body ratio. The 14″ display is definitely a treat and thanks to the cutting edge display, the laptop has a very compact format with a 319.3 x 197.4 x 12.2 mm dimension and weighing 1.2Kg.
Smart Face Login & PrivacyThe S940 comes with a dedicated IR sensor for face recognition for face unlock. Also with the AI Smart chops on board, it also offers Smart privacy feature with its AI-powered Glance software and sensors, the minute users turn their head away from the laptop screen, it auto-locks the display to protect the data from being seen my others. To keep the prying eyes away, it also detects and alerts the user when any one tries to snoop you from behind your shoulder.
Smart External Monitor InterfaceOne of the interesting features I found out in the laptop is its nifty feature that can shift the content from the laptop to connected external monitor just by a glance based on your attention, intent and focus. This again is done with the aid of the Smart AI capabilities and the eye-tracking Glance software of the machine.
Blurred Background Video CallsTaking privacy further, there is an option to blur out the background when you are doing video calls.
Front-firing Dual SpeakersFlanking both the sides of the keyboard panel rests two speakers on the front. The audio experience is enhanced with Dolby Vision® and Dolby Atmos® Speaker System. Lenovo has included the S940 to its Build Your Own Laptop personalization where the price starts at Rs ₹125,133 in India or you can buy the top end machine for ₹144,990.
