What you need to know
- Lenovo launched the new Yoga C640 at IFA 2019 today.
- This refresh drops the Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 chip seen in last year's C630 in favor of Intel's 10th Gen chips.
- The Yoga C640 is expected to launch in October starting at $850.
Alongside the launch of its new top-end Yoga C940 2-in-1s today, Lenovo unveiled the new Yoga C640. The C640 is a substantial update to last year's ultra-portable Yoga C630, making the jump from Qualcomm's Snapdragon 850 platform to Intel's latest 10th Gen Core processors.
The focus for the Yoga C640 is still on being as portable as possible. The 2-in-1 laptop comes with 4G LTE connectivity so you can stay connected on the go, though there is a Wi-Fi only option as well. You'll also get optional Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, which is the latest Wi-Fi standard that is only just starting to trickle into the market.
The big change here is with Lenovo's choice of processors. You'll now be able to select between 10th Gen Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 CPUs. Along with the upgraded CPUs, you'll also be able to equip the Yoga C640 with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. Lenovo states that you can expect up to 20 hours of battery life, which should get you through plenty of work if that number holds true.
Otherwise, the display remains at 13 inches with two 1080p options: 300 nits or 400 nits. There are also integrated far field microphones for Alexa and Cortana, fingerprint login support, an optional pen, and a privacy shutter for the webcam.
