The IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin) is one of the biggest European technology events where companies from around the world come to present their new products that will be reaching the market soon.

At the IFA 2018 event, Lenovo also introduced the new Yoga C630, the first Snapdragon 850 powered laptop, with a 25-hour battery life.

Lenovo’s Yoga C630 is a 2-in-1 laptop, it combines mobile connectivity with a long-lasting battery that combines smartphone mobility with laptop performance. This is the first device equipped with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 mobile computing platform.

The Yoga C630 WOS (Windows on Snapdragon) features a fanless design for a quiet and cool use. The device uses a polished aluminium body in an elegant and subtle design with a 13.3-inch Full HD IPS touchscreen (1920 × 1080 maximum resolution) to play or work with. The Yoga C630 WOS comes with 8GB of RAM and can have up to 256GB of storage memory and the GPU is a Qualcomm Adreno 630. Above all, it comes with a thin profile of 12.5 mm and weighing only 1.2 kg.

The Yoga C630 WOS sports the 4.5G LTE Advanced Pro5 designed to combat connectivity interruptions. In addition, this device comes with an LTE interface that frees users from dependence on public Wi-Fi networks.

Lenovo Yoga C630 runs the latest Windows 10 OS for a more secure and simplified user experience. Also, it is designed to support up to 30% performance increase over the previous version of Windows on Snapdragon devices. It also features an optional Lenovo stylus and Windows Ink that allows users to draw or take notes with the same experience as the one who writes on paper.

Great Battery Life

The new Yoga C630 allows up to 25 hours of video playback on a single charge. This means you will have enough battery power to watch your favourite series – a complete season without having to plug in a charger or look for a power outlet.

Note that more than 25 hours of video playback requires the unit to be configured with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 mobile computing platform. All battery longevity messages are estimates.

However, the battery performance varies and depends on a number of factors including configuration and product usage, software, operating conditions, wireless functionality, power management settings, screen brightness, and others. But you should know that the maximum capacity of the battery will naturally decrease over time and use.

Price and Availability

According to EMEA, the Yoga C630 WOS starts at €999 (approximately N415,700) and it is expected to be available from November 2018 on the company’s website.
