The laptop features a 14-inch 2.8K (2,880×1,800 pixels) OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a 16:10 aspect ratio. Notably, it is also the first in the Lenovo Yoga lineup to feature an OLED display technology. The display is produced by Samsung Display and touted to have chrominance attributes (chroma) amplified by up to 1.25 times the amount available on an LCD panel.
