Lenovo has announced the ThinkPad Z13 Gen 2 and ThinkPad Z16 Gen 2 at MWC 2023.
Back at CES, Lenovo showed off a huge arrangement of new devices including a genuine double-screen PC and a work area light that doubles as a webcam. But now, Lenovo is once again at Mobile World Congress with a few more refreshed notepads and tablets featured by two interesting updates to the ThinkPad Z family.
Designed to be ideal allies for hybrid laborers, the new ThinkPad Z13 Gen 2 and Z16 Gen 2 element an all-AMD setup. You’ll have the option to browse a scope of Ryzen 7000 processors and, surprisingly, an optional Radeon 6650M graphics card on the bigger Z16, alongside up to 64GB of Slam and 2TB of SSD storage. However, for individuals who are continually bouncing on and off video calls, the ThinkPad Z13 and Z16’s new communication elements may be the greater draw.
That is because, in addition to new full HD webcams, you’ll also get support for Wi-Fi 6E and Dolby Voice-enabled mouthpieces, so you should look and sound great in Zoom meetings. In any case, my number one new component is the TrackPoint Fast Menu which can be called by simply double-tapping the organization’s unique red stub.

This opens a window that allows you rapidly to change things like camera settings, mic volume, voice transcription, and noise suppression and the sky is the limit from there. You could redo which settings you need to see so you have fast access to the things you will generally change most frequently and it’s an extraordinary approach to adding new users to a classic part like the TrackPoint.
Different specs incorporate up to a 13.3-inch 2.8K OLED display on the Z13 Gen 2 or a larger and higher goal 16-inch 4K OLED board on the Z16 Gen 2. Lenovo has also held helpful highlights like an electronic shade for the webcam, in addition to double speakers with Dolby Atmos, a few USB ports depending on the system, and a devoted SD card reader on the Z16.
Meanwhile, to assist with further developing your mousing experience, both the Z13 and Z16 Gen 2 components have a Fusion FX touchpad from Sensel, which adds more refined haptics, and better palm dismissal and that’s just the beginning. On top of being genuinely bigger (120mm across), long-term Trackpoint fans will also see the value in that Sensel’s touchpad upholds three virtual haptic buttons that run across the top of the touchpad, so you’ll in any case have simple admittance to left and right mouse clicks without coming to excessively far.
Finally, the last big change for the Z13 is that close to the default aluminum finish, as a component of its commitment to maintainability, Lenovo is also presenting another flax fiber cover which is made from waste material gathered during the harvesting system. This material is something we’ve seen before on a modest bunch of idea vehicles from organizations like Porsche and Polestar, but Lenovo says this is the initial time this reinforced flax fiber material will be accessible on a consumer electronic device.
The ThinkPad Z13 Gen 2 is supposed to go on special at some point in July starting at $1,249, with the ThinkPad Z16 Gen arriving a piece later in August starting at $1,749.
