Like many device makers, Lenovo is responding to the post-pandemic world and hybrid lifestyles, where technology must be flexible enough to cover both business and entertainment uses. To that end, the company unveiled an innovative dual-screen OLED laptop, a powerful and stylish all-in-one (AIO) PC, and a cutting-edge Android tablet.

Lenovo claims the Yoga Book 9i is “the world’s first dual-screen OLED laptop”. And the second screen is not a secondary screen. This device has two 13.3-inch 2.8K 16:10 HDR OLED displays. Equipped with a 360 degree hinge, it can be positioned in the usual clamshell, tent, presentation, and tablet configurations, using either a virtual keyboard/touchpad on one of the screens or a separate Bluetooth keyboard, which which releases the two screens.

But that’s not all: a folio stand makes it possible to operate both screens in portrait and landscape mode, which offers greater flexibility. Pen support lets students, for example, take notes on one screen and complete an online course on the other. There’s no risk of creases to worry about, like on foldable-screen laptops like the ThinkPad X1 Fold, and the hinge area is taken advantage of to house a soundbar with quad Bowers speakers & Wilkins.
