On the occasion of the CES which officially begins this Monday, Lenovo announced a new version of its range of convertible ultrabook. The Yoga Slim 7i Pro now has an OLED display.
Always quick to innovate, Lenovo introduces a new model for its Yoga Slim range. The 7i Pro, unveiled last August, benefits from an update with the addition of an OLED panel, while retaining the refresh rate of 90 Hz and its convertible side.
An OLED screen with Dolby Vision
The Yoga Slim 7i Pro’s 14-inch OLED panel is produced by Samsung Display and offers a definition of up to 2880 x 1800 pixels for a 16:10 ratio. The manufacturer explains that the chroma, that is to say the color rendering, would be amplified compared to the traditional LCD panel. Unlike LCD backlighting, in OLED technology each pixel emits its own light. Note also a reduction of blue light up to 70%.
The 14-inch screen is capable of displaying the full spectrum of the DCI-P3 color space. Lenovo specifies that the screen is compatible with Dolby Vision HDR technology. This last guarantee that the resulting image remains entirely faithful to the original captured by the director.
