SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Synaptics Incorporated (NASDAQ:SYNA), the leading developer of human interface solutions, today announced its Natural ID™ fingerprint sensors for secure authentication are integrated into Lenovo’s new Yoga 910 convertible laptop. Natural ID fingerprint sensors are designed to enable one-touch secure login to the PC and are backed by enterprise-grade security. The Yoga 910 also features Synaptics’ ClearPad® touchscreen controller and ClickPad™ solutions, delivering an advanced user-experience with touch, swipe, pinch and other gestures on the screen and on the keyboard touchpad.
With its highly responsive and beautiful 13.9-inch touchscreen, the thin and elegant Yoga 910 convertible supports multiple usage modes with its unique 360-degree watchband hinge.
