Specially designed to offer a more authentic, premium quality sound performance, Bowers & Wilkins sound system will be on the new Lenovo Yoga Slim 9i (14”, 7) premium ultra-slim laptop (known as the Lenovo Slim 9i (14”, 7) in the U.S.), as a bespoke feature – joining the recently launched Lenovo Yoga 9i (14”, 7) with quad Bowers & Wilkins speakers.
As a union of mobility and performance, Lenovo’s new Yoga Slim 9i redefines the meaning of portable entertainment and content creation. In addition to its Bowers & Wilkins sound system, it has a 14-inch 16:10 up-to-4K OLED PureSight touchscreen display that provides ultra-sharp detail, clarity and rich, photorealistic colours — from deep blacks to vibrant lights. With VESA® DisplayHDR 500 True Black, its depth of 10 bits can display over a billion colours in a single pixel and a full color gamut of 100 percent DCI-P3.
In collaboration with Lenovo engineers and designers, Bowers & Wilkins has once again engineered a four-speaker system – featuring bespoke high-quality drivers including two tweeters and two mid/bass woofers – into the ultra-thin body of the Lenovo Yoga Slim 9i to offer extraordinary sound and bring a new audio quality to movies, music or calls.
All of Bowers & Wilkins technologies are developed at the company’s R&D centre in Southwater, England by the same engineering team for all projects, including the iconic 800 Series Diamond. These speakers are widely acknowledged to be one of the world’s best loudspeaker ranges, and the monitor of choice for the huge selection of iconic music and film scores that have been recorded and mixed at leading recording studios such as Abbey Road Studios and Skywalker Sound.
Bowers & Wilkins has also earned an outstanding reputation for consistently producing exceptional sound quality, irrespective of product type, size or form factor – which has allowed the company to bring ‘True Sound’ performance to the world of portable computing.
With Bowers & Wilkins, the new Lenovo Yoga Slim 9i will have large scale, high resolution, low distortion and accurate sound thanks to carefully designed speaker enclosures and the selection of the high-quality components, while optimising their position within product.
The two high-end speakers for the sound system are seamlessly integrated into the main body. The Lenovo Yoga Slim 9i is carefully mounted at the outer edges on either side of the keyboard – to offer good stereo separation and close to the screen – to ensure excellent audio/video syncronisation.
The two larger mid/bass speakers are down firing and mounted in the base of the product, giving the system four speakers in total for a more expansive but still authentic and accurate audio experience.
All of the speakers are mounted behind specially designed, attractive, acoustically transparent grills that offer good protection while having no impact on the final sound quality.
Dave Sheen, SVP Licensing & Partnerships at Sound United said:
“The teams at Bowers & Wilkins and Lenovo collaborated to create something truly groundbreaking when creating the Lenovo Yoga 9i. So, it’s exciting to be able to work together again in order to bring True Sound to a second Lenovo Yoga laptop, and once again redefine what performance quality is possible but from a slightly different form factor.”
U.S. Pricing & Availability: The Yoga Slim 9i (14”, 7), known as Lenovo Slim 9i (14”, 7) in the U.S., starts at $1,799 and is expected to be available starting June 2022.1
