At the ongoing CES 2023, Lenovo refreshed a lot of its consumer electronics lineup. We have already covered the new Legion Pro 5 and Legion Pro 7, and for this article, we have turned our focus to the Lenovo Yoga 6. So, further ado, let’s get into the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Lenovo Yoga 6 Gen 8 (2023) in Nepal.
Lenovo Yoga 6 Gen 8 (2023) Overview:
Design and Display
Now on its 8th gen, Lenovo has already established Yoga 6 as a popular option in the 2-in-1 convertible segment. So, it should not be a surprise that the new 2023 model is more of a refresh than a laptop built from the ground up. Lenovo is playing safe by going with the tried and tested design of the previous iterations of the Yoga 6.
Like its predecessor, the new Yoga 6 Gen 8 sports a thin-and-light form factor with rounded frames for ergonomics. Lenovo continues to offer the 2-in-1 laptop in Fabric and Metal Editions. The latter comes with a metal lid made from recycled aluminum, whereas the other has an added layer for PCC fabrics. Of the two, the Fabric Edition is slightly heavier but is also 0.11mm thinner.
Coming to the display, Lenovo Yoga 6 (2023) features a 13.3” FHD touchscreen with a 360° hinge. The screen sports a modern 16:10 aspect ratio and covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut. It has Dolby Vision certification and peaks at 300 nits of brightness.
Audio, Keyboard, Webcam
In addition to the Dolby Vision display, Lenovo Yoga 6 Gen 8 (2023) also has a stereo speaker setup with Doby Atmos. The two speakers are front-facing and capable of 2W output each. In between them lies the full-size keyboard with a dedicated number pad. A fingerprint reader lies just below the keyboard to the left.
The small protrusion above the Yoga’s 6 screen is home to a 1080p webcam. It comes with an IR sensor for Windows Hello authentication and has a physical shutter of its own.

Performance and Memory
As for performance, you get to choose between AMD’s latest Ryzen 7000-series APUs. The base variant comes with Ryzen 5 7530U, while there is a Ryzen 7 7730U for users that require more power. Despite the Ryzen 7000 series, these two chips are not the latest Zen 4 architecture. Instead, they are part of the “Barcelo refresh” of the Zen 2-based Ryzen 5 5500U and Ryzen 7 5700U, respectively.
Lenovo offers the 2023’s Yoga 6 in 8GB and 16GB RAM variants. Since it’s a 2-in-1 convertible laptop, the memory is not accessible and thus non-upgradeable. Moreover, the laptop comes with up to 1TB of SSD storage, depending upon the configuration.
Rest of the Specs
Fueling the Lenovo Yoga 6 Gen 8 is a 59Whr rated for up to 13.5 hours in MobileMark 2018. Lenovo even says the laptop can last up to 17 hours of continuous local video playback. Moreover, the company has even included support for in-house Rapid Charge technology.
Connectivity options on the new Yoga 6 (2023) include two USB-C, two USB-A, one HDMI, one MicroSD card reader, and a combined audio jack. Then there are Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 for wireless networks.
