CES 2022: Everything you need to know about the new Lenovo Yoga 9i

- Advertisement -

It was 10 years ago at CES when Lenovo debuted its iconic 360-degree flexible hinge design on the world’s first multi-mode Yoga 2-in-1 laptop that redefined the industry. Designed for versatility and portability as users flip and fold from work to play, the sophisticated style of Lenovo Yoga continues to delight. Now a decade later, the Yoga spans and stretches across form factors, bringing bold innovation and refined craftsmanship to consumers in a ‘work/learn/play-from-anywhere’ world.

The world leader in PCs, Lenovo unveiled its seventh generation of Yoga 2-in-1 laptops with its new 14-inch flagship convertible laptop the Lenovo Yoga 9i, the ultra-portable Yoga 7i in 14-inch and 16-inch, and the 13-inch eco-friendly Yoga 6 made with recycled materials.

Premium Pushes your Entertainment to the Max – Yoga 9i

Each year, Lenovo rolls out a new class of Yoga 2-in-1s with smarter technology built-in to deliver the immersive experiences people need to improve their workday and free time, and this year’s no exception. Get ready for the new Yoga 9i convertible (14”, 7) with Windows 11 and the optimized responsiveness of up to 12th Gen Intel Core™ i7-1260P processor combined with Intel Iris Xe graphics to deliver superior performance where you need it most. From streaming to browsing to photo and video editing and more, experience the real-world performance you need for your biggest breakthroughs on one of Lenovo’s thin, light, and fast convertible laptops. Co-engineered with Intel, the Yoga 9i design will meet the requirements of an Intel Evo™ laptop through Intel’s hardware specifications and key experience targets for responsiveness, instant wake, battery life, fast charge and intelligent collaboration to deliver a super-fast boot up from virtually anywhere you use your laptop.

More than just a multi-mode laptop that flips to tablet mode and back, the premium Yoga 9i delivers an enhanced audio experience with new speakers that are even louder over the previous generation. Watch movies and listen to music with the authentic audio the artist intended with an improved Rotating Sound Bar with quad Bowers & Wilkins speakers, consisting of two woofers and two tweeters on the top and sides for an improved range of frequency response increasing the depth, clarity and warmth of bass effects. Enjoy the dazzle of an up to 4K OLED IPS touchscreen with slim bezels and a VESA DisplayHDR 500 True Black certified for 100 percent DCI-P3 color accuracy. It also supports Dolby Vision HDR, which delivers incredible ultravivid picture quality along with immersive sound of Dolby Atmos. It comes in 16:10 format for less scrolling and a 60Hz refresh rate for everyday computing. The TÜV Low Blue Light certification means it’s specially calibrated to help reduce eye strain.

The Yoga 9i’s most significant update may be the least obvious. To keep up with today’s busy hybrid learning and working lifestyle, this convertible also brings productivity innovations to the market with easier one-handed opening for multitasking convenience, and an untraditional edge-to-edge keyboard design layout offering a bar of new 1-Click Function Keys with five additional shortcut keys marked with user-friendly icons for quick access to frequently used features, such as:

  • A shortcut to shifting into Smart Power performance mode that enables higher performance or longer battery life depending on what you’re doing at the time – without having to remember the previous combination of Fn+Q keys. Just look for the performance icon to enable Smart Power that optimizes system battery life and cooler thermals with up to 28W TDP and a 75Whr battery.
  • The clever Background Blur function that instantly helps to protect the privacy of one’s surroundings on video calls via Microsoft Teams or other collaboration platforms with just a click; to show a clear image of you and your background once more, just press the key again.
  • The sound bar built into Yoga 9i’s 360-degree hinge provided Lenovo’s design and engineering teams with the unique opportunity to add a smarter Audio mode changing function key that we call Vibe Check, that helps users better perceive differences between nuanced audio profiles for a more satisfying listening experience for practically any type of entertainment. Choose from music mode, to gaming mode or movie mode for a greater sound effect that doesn’t kill the vibe.
  • In addition to Smart Sense lighting that auto-adjusts the keyboard’s backlighting based on ambient light, there’s the color mode key that makes it easy for users to switch their system appearance between dark and light mode via the native color settings feature in Windows to see which works best. Besides giving your eyes a break, enabling dark mode for an OLED display can potentially help preserve the life of the battery, and it comes in handy in low-lit environments.
  • In the same column of keys, you’ll discover that the Fingerprint reader was placed here instead of where your wrists typically hit the palm rest for added comfort and a cleaner appearance. It also has a FHD infrared (IR) camera with an electronic privacy shutter, plus convenient smart login with a sensor to detect a person’s presence and enabling log-off when they’re away and log-in once they return to their device.

What else is new on the Yoga 9i? For starters, how about a 45 percent larger touchpad for increased finger space, click performance and accuracy, plus more ports including two Intel Thunderbolt™ 4 ports and expanded Wi-Fi 6E for fast dedicated connectivity. What’s more, this portable powerhouse is available in inviting neutrals like Storm Grey and warm Oatmeal hue, reflective high-gloss sidewalls add a hint of bling to this flagship 2-and-1 laptop. For extra durability, its precise unibody is made from high-grade aluminum and comes with new Comfort Edge design to make carrying your laptop from place to place just that little bit easier. You’ll also find a Precision Pen 2 with tilt detection or an e-color pen inside the box for all those scribblers and notetakers out there who prefer the feel of a real pen in their hand for a more natural and intuitive drawing experience.
