IFA 2018 is going to be the most interesting hi-tech-related trade show of this second half of the year, and Lenovo will take part in the show with several new devices. Among these, according to the known leakster Roland Quandt from WinFuture.de, there will also be Yoga C930, the most powerful convertible from the Yoga line-up. The new model follows the Yoga 920 unveiled at IFA 2017 with a consistently improved specs sheet. According to the leaked specs, the new 2 in 1 will be very lightweight as it will weigh just 1.38 kg. But it will sport a wide 13.9-inch display with the support to the touchscreen and a highly detailed 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels.

Thanks to a solid and sophisticated hinge, it will be possible to convert the Lenovo Yoga C920 from a notebook to a tablet by overturning the display and putting it behind the physical backlit keyboard. The display will also support the Lenovo Active Pen for handwriting and drawing with thousands of pressure levels. Under the hood, there will be Intel 8th gen processor: in detail, there should be a configuration with Intel Core i5 8250U (clock frequency of 1.6 GHz and up to 3.4 GHz with TurboBoost) and another more expensive one with Intel Core i7 8550U (running at 1.8 GHz and up to 4 GHz with TurboBoost) for top-class performance.

Alongside these CPUs, there will be 8 or 16 GB of RAM and an SSD with a capacity of 256 or 512 GB depending on the chosen configuration. The notebook is expected to be equipped with a USB-A port, a USB 3.1 port, two USB-C port with Thunderbolt 3, a 3.5 mm audio jack and dual band Wi-Fi connectivity. Lenovo Yoga C920 should also have an improved battery over its predecessor, with a capacity of 70 Wh. Given that it is a top-end device, it will be costly: it is expected to hit the shelves with a starting price tag of €1600 in Europe.
