It will be released in the UK first

Lenovo presented its 15-inch ThinkPad S531 Ultrabook today at the Xander Zhou fashion show at London Fashion Week.

While Lenovo's ultrabooks typically have 14-inch screens, the new ThinkPad S531 steps into the realm of larger displays at 15 inches. The LCD screen can also move 180 degrees to lay flat.

The latest member to the Lenovo ultrabook family also sports Intel 3rd generation Core processors, meaning no Haswell for this model. It has up to 10GB of memory and 500GB of storage, and is optimized for Windows 8. 

Lenovo hasn't released many details about the S531 quite yet, but we do know it has an ultra-thin bezel (which has beveled edges on the front and side for a "floating" illusion), two USB 3.0 ports, a six-row backlit keyboard with Windows 8 optimized shortcut keys, a touchpad supports Windows 8 gestures, a nine-hour battery life and Lenovo OneLink technology (which customers can use to connect to the ThinkPad OneLink Dock with a single cable for additional USB 3.0 ports, dedicated video and gigabit Ethernet. 

"The progressive design of our ThinkPad S531 will help small businesses impress their customers. We pack a punch behind that style, however, as we are committed to delivering genuine substance with improved performance, battery life and legendary ThinkPad reliability," said Vincent Fauquenot, vice president of Products and Channels, Lenovo EMEA. "The ThinkPad S531 offers an intuitive Windows 8 experience with the power needed to accelerate productivity."

The S531 will launch in the UK first for £575 ($900 USD), with a 10GB model with a full HD display available in July. But there's no launch date for the U.S. yet.
