Inspired by the latest additions to Lenovo’s top-of-the-line 2-in-1 consumer PC Yoga sub-brand, the new Lenovo Yoga 9i and 7i, verified to the Intel Evo platform – For All Creators is designed to inspire creativity and unleash self-expression.
Similar to the immersive, virtual concert, the Yoga 9i is crafted for a premium entertainment experience, featuring stunning visuals enabled by Dolby Vision for ultra-vivid picture quality and spectacular sound powered by Dolby Atmos Speaker System. And with up to 15+ hours of battery life1, the Yoga 9i enables creators, and fans, to work from anywhere without sacrificing comfort, performance or high resolution.
“In today’s mobile environment where the lines between work and play are increasingly blurred, technology is critical for maintaining efficiency and productivity, but it also inspires and heightens our creativity,” said Matthew Zielinski, president of Lenovo North America. “For All Creators and Lenovo’s partnership with the Jonas Brothers is a natural fit for the Yoga line. Creatives from every level, whether a globally recognized artist to an emerging designer, understand the importance of having the right technology tools to fuel their passion.”
Lenovo partnered with UMGB to conceptualize a 2020 North American program inspired by Lenovo’s new global campaign Yoga For All Of Us, alongside the launch of Intel Evo’s platform, offering exceptional experience anywhere and driven by communal creative expression and collaboration.
“During these extraordinary times, the opportunity to strategize and partner with Lenovo has been both motivating and exciting,” said LJ Gutierrez, General Manager of Brand Partnerships at UMGB. “The music industry is constantly evolving, and we are proud to create an experience with Lenovo that gives fans the opportunity to interact and connect with the Jonas Brothers.”
Winning creators will be notified on November 12, 2020.
