Lenovo’s PC revenues rose 19.8 percent year-on-year in the three months ending June 30. It has been helped by new products in both the tablet and PC categories and new devices like the Yoga Book that appeal to a different portion of the market.
The world’s second-largest PC maker also launched a premium laptop called the Yoga C930. It runs Windows 10 and has a built-in sound bar designed to boost the entertainment experience.
Lenovo has looked to diversify revenues away from its core PC business with investments in so-called internet of things (IOT) technology. This term refers to internet-connected devices.
At the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, Germany, Lenovo unveiled a series of smart home products including an internet-connected plug, camera and light bulb. These will be compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant products with availability in the U.S. starting in November.
Correction: This story has been updated to reflect that the Yoga Book C930 is not the first laptop with dual screens. It is the first laptop with a dual screen system that includes one e-ink display in place of the keyboard.
