Like many device makers, Lenovo is responding to a post-pandemic world and hybrid lifestyle, where technology must be flexible enough to encompass both business and entertainment purposes. To this end, the company has launched an innovative dual-screen OLED laptop, a powerful and stylish all-in-one (AIO) PC, and a state-of-the-art Android tablet.

Lenovo claims the Yoga Book 9i is “the world’s first dual-screen OLED laptop.” And the secondary 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 placed in conventional lid, tent, presentation and tablet configurations using either a virtual keyboard/touchpad on one of the screens or a separate Bluetooth keyboard that leaves two screens.

But that’s not all: the folio stand allows you to control both screens in portrait and landscape mode, offering even more flexibility. Pen support allows students, for example, to take notes on one screen and complete an online course on another. As with laptops with foldable screens like the ThinkPad X1 Fold, there’s no risk of creases to worry about, and the hinge area is used to house a soundbar with quad Bowers speakers and Wilkins.
