Lenovo’s planning to launch several new laptops and refresh a few other models this fall, if leaked product listings at a Polish store are anything to go by. We should know more about pricing and availability in a few days: Lenovo is holding a press event ahead of the IFA trade show on August 31st.

The new computers will be available with a choice of Intel Core i5-8250U or Core i7-8550U quad-core processors. These are the new “Kaby Lake Refresh” chips that Intel unveiled recently.

Here are some of the new/updated laptops I was able to find so far:

Lenovo Yoga 920

We got out first glimpse at this laptop in July, thanks to an FCC listing, back when we though Intel’s 8th-gen laptop chips would be part of the “Coffee Lake” family.

Now we have some more details about this high-end convertible notebook, along with a few pictures.

The laptop features a 13.9 inch display and a 360-degree hinge that allows you to switch from laptop to tablet mode by pushing the screen back.

Lenovo will offer at least three versions:

  • 3840 x 2160 pixel display, Core i7-8550U/8GB RAM/512GB SSD
  • 1920 x 1080 pixel display, Core i7-8550U,/8GB RAM/512GB SSD
  • 1920 x 1080 pixel display, Core i5-8250U/8GB RAM/256GB SSD

Both versions feature Intel UHD 620 graphics, stereo speakers, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, a USB 3.0 Type-A port, and a touchscreen.

The convertible laptop measures about 0.6 inches thick and weighs about 3 pounds. The notebook also has very slim top and side bezels, and seems to be a follow-up to the similar looking Yoga 910.

Lenovo Yoga 720

This is a lower cost model without the watchband-style hinge found on the Yoga 920, and with no 4K display or 512GB SSD options that I can find so far.

The notebook will be available with Core i5 or Core i7 processors, but both versions feature 1920 x 1080 pixel displays, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of solid state storage.

The Yoga 720 measures 0.6 inches thick, weighs about 2.9 pounds, has two USB 3.1 Type-C ports, and a USB 3.0 Type-A port.

Lenovo Legion Y720

Intel’s new 15 watt Kaby Lake-R chips are the company’s first 15 watt, laptop-class quad-core processors. So this laptop is noteworthy because the previous Legion Y720 series notebook had a 45 watt quad-core chip.

The new model might be a bit slower in some tasks, but from what I’ve seen, Intel’s 8th-gen Core U-series 15 watt chips come surprisingly close to the company’s 45 watt 7th-gen Core HQ-series chips in benchmarks. The upside of switching to the lower-power chips is the potential for longer battery life.

Lenovo seems to have at least two configuration options for this new Legion Y720:

  • 15.6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display/Core i7-8550U/AMD Radeon RX 560M graphics/8GB RAM/256GB SSD
  • 15.6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display/Core i5-8250U/AMD Radeon RX 560M/8GB/1TB HDD

Both models have matte IPS displays, stereo speakers, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet, and three USB 3.0 ports.

Weighing in at 7 pounds, this isn’t exactly a compact notebook. But it’s noteworthy if for no other reason than that it’ll be more energy efficient than its predecessors.

Lenovo IdeaPad 320S

As I mentioned earlier this week, Lenovo has a New Idepad 320S laptop that appears to have a Kaby Lake-R chip and a previously unannounced NVIDIA GeForce 1040 GPU.

But it turns out there are a bunch of different IdeaPad 320S models, including:

  • 15.6 inch FHD/Core i5-8250U/GeForce 1040/8GB/256GB
  • 15.6 inch FHD/Core i5-8250U/GeForce 940MX/8GB/128GB
  • 14 inch FHD/Core i5-8250U/GeForce 920MX/8GB/256GB

  1. I saw these on euro.com.pl a few days back, but looking closer on the 920 photo, it seems it is still an older 910 image since the camera is at the bottom and not the top as in the leaked fcc docs.

      1. Roland Quandt posted up photos of the 13 inch 320S, 1.2 kg, new kaby lake R with MX150.
