Lenovo launched a new thin and light laptop called the Lenovo Air 13 Pro in China a few weeks ago. Now it looks like that laptop will probably be available in the US and other markets soon… under a different name.
Roland Quandt noticed the laptop at the Energy Star website recently, along with a bunch of other laptops and convertibles that Lenovo is probably going to introduce at the IFA show in Berlin in a few weeks.
Note that some of these computers will have different names depending on the region where they’re sold. For example, the Air 13 Pro will probably be known as the Lenovo IdeaPad 710S Plus in the West.

That 2.8 pound notebook features a 13 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, an Intel Core i5 Skylake processor, NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics, 4GB of RAM, and 256GB of solid state storage.
This model is a convertible notebook which Quandt says has a 13.9 inch display and slim side bezels. It’s expected to come in two models: one will have a glass cover on the lid.
The top-of-the-line model is expected to feature an Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake processor and up to 16GB of RAM.

With an 11.6 inch inch display, this laptop will join the the latest low-end/mid-range 14 and 15 inch convertible notebooks with touchscreen displays which launched earlier this year.
Quandt hasn’t shared many details about this notebook other than the model number (Flex 4-1130) and screen size, and I can’t find many other details.
