Lenovo has announced its latest ultra-portable notebook based on Zhaoxin’s XK-6600MA4 CPU and utilizes a customized Lenovo SoC. (SoC). Its Haitian N7 resembles the recently unveiled Yoga Slim 7i notebook and comes with a host of features expected from laptops in this category.

Is Lenovo Kaitian N7 a quad-core Zhaoxin KaiXian XX-6600MA4 CPU based on LuJiaZui microarchitecture developed by the TSMC’s 16-nm fabrication process? The processor comes with 16 GB DDR4 memory and a 512GB NVMe compatible SSD that has a PCIe connection. It’s interesting to note that the processor appears to be quite hot, as it is cooled with the dual-fan thermal pipe cooler. In terms of the software, it has a customized OS designed in China and comes with a BIOS developed by Tianxia.

After testing the 8-core Zhaoxin KaiXian KaiXian U6780A processor, we do not believe it is an overall performance top performer. But it’s possible Lenovo decided to create a laptop with only software and hardware designed in China, then it would not have a lot of options.

Haitian N7 Kaitian N7 comes in a 13.3-inch chassis fitted with a 14-inch screen with slim bezels and 2.2K resolution and reports in eZone. As with other models of this type, the Kaitian N7 weighs 1.29 kilograms and is 14.6 millimeters in thickness. For connectivity, it comes with Wi-Fi 6 as well as Bluetooth 5. HDMI output, two USB C ports, a USB Type-A connector, and the TRRS audio connector used with headsets. To further protect your biometrics, it includes fingerprint readers.

In addition, the company has provided its Kaitian N7 with a custom Lenovo SoC that manages particular system features such as light sensing, covering the opening, quick charging the power bank feature, power saving control, and mute controls, according to ApoTheTech. Additionally, the SoC can delegate some tasks to the OS and ensure that the system runs at its best in every component.

However, even the most powerful controller cannot be able to compensate for the inefficient CPU and the OS. For example, the operating system starts up in fourteen seconds. That’s quite lengthy by current standards. Additionally, even with a battery of 61 Wh, The Kaitian N7 battery can only last for six hours.

There’s no word on the price or availability of Lenovo’s Kaitian N7, but we believe it will hit the Chinese market within the next weeks or even months. In the meantime, it doesn’t seem like Lenovo will launch this model in other markets.

This isn’t the first Lenovo product to run the Zhaoxin processor. In the last year, the company launched a thin-client/UCFF desktop PC based on the Zhaoxin chip.
