Lenovo Yoga 520 convertible notebook surfaces

Lenovo unveiled the Yoga 510 (Flex 4 in the U.S) convertible notebook with SkyLake chipset at last year's MWC. Now a year later at this year's MWC, the company will launch its successor, the Yoga 520 with Intel's 7th gen chipset. 

The convertible briefly showed up on the company's website, and the listing was removed later, but a Google cached version of the page, reveals what is in offer.

Similar to the Yoga 510, the Yoga 520 will be available with 14-inch and 15.6-inch screen options with Full HD tocuh screen display, but will feature up to Core i7 Kaby lake processor, up to 16GB RAM, and 10 hours of battery life (vs. 8.5 hours on Yoga 510).

It will come with an optional fingerprint scanner for Windows Hello, and sport 360 degree hinge, which will allow users to transform the convertible into various modes. There's also support for Lenovo Active Pen for taking notes or drawing.
