While the annual Mobile World Congress may be intended to showcase new mobile devices, that won’t stop Lenovo from exhibiting a bumped-up version of the Yoga 710 laptop called the Yoga 720. According to Notebook Italia, which claimed to be in possession of some screenshots that belong to the Yoga 720, the Chinese computer giant is adding a boatload of new features and modern components to the next-generation 2-in-1 laptop.

Rumor has it that the Lenovo Yoga 720 will come in two variants: a 13.3-inch version and a 15.6-inch variant. The 13.3-inch Yoga 720 will reportedly sport a Full HD display and pack an Intel Core i5-7200 dual-core CPU, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to a 512GB of internal storage.

Inside, the laptop will also include a 2 x 2 MU-MIMO 802.11ac adapter, USB Type-C ports and Bluetooth 4.1 for connectivity, according to the report. A 48 watt-hour battery will power the laptop and a fingerprint reader sitting next to the keyboard will let you log in to your PC using the Windows Hello feature.

Meanwhile, the 15.6-inch Yoga 720 will show off top-of-the-line specs, including a Full HD display, Intel’s Core i7-7700HQ quad-core CPU, up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of built-in storage. The larger PC will also ship with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1050 with 2GB of GRDDR5 memory and a 72 watt-hour battery.

Pricing and availability of the laptop remain unknown at the moment, so we will have to wait until the MWC 2017 event taking place in Barcelona, Spain from February 27 through March 2. If the rumor holds true, the Windows PC ecosystem looks to be introducing yet another nifty addition to its fold. Are you eager to get your hands on the rumored Yoga laptop? Share your thoughts.
