Lenovo has announced its new IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon, which joins its lineup of OLED laptops launched this month.
The device is branded Yoga Slim 7 Carbon outside North America. The company claims that it is the lightest laptop with a 14-inch OLED screen on the market, weighing 1.07 kg.
The OLED panel (from Samsung Display) comes in QHD+ resolution, rather than the 4K resolution you often see on laptops with an OLED screen.
This means that you won’t get as many pixels as you get in a 4K OLED device (like the ZenBook 14X). But you may also see better battery life.
The screen has an aspect ratio of 16:10, which offers more vertical space than the 16:9 panel on last year’s IdeaPad Slim 7.
The company says it has a refresh rate of 90Hz (a hallmark Samsung has promised to appear on more OLED laptops this year). It covers 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut and has a brightness of 600 nits.
The IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon can be configured with up to an AMD Ryzen 7 5800U, Nvidia GeForce MX450 graphics card, 16GB of memory, and 1TB of storage.
And there’s a 61W battery that the company claims lasts up to 14.5 hours. Furthermore it Lenovo also insists on the durability of the computer despite its light build.

According to the company, the device has undergone nine operational durability tests and can withstand daily physical shocks and harsh environmental conditions. It is expected to hit shelves in October with a starting price of $1,290.
The company also showcased the new Yoga Slim 7 Pro (branded as the IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro outside of North America).
This 16-inch laptop has a regular IPS touch screen instead of an OLED screen. And that’s even though it’s also 16:10 and has QHD resolution.
The refresh rate of this screen reaches 120 Hz. Models come with up to a Ryzen 7 5800H, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050, 16GB of RAM, and 1TB of storage.
Additionally there is a 75 watt battery. The Yoga Slim 7 Pro is expected to arrive in October with a starting price of $1,449.
