Lenovo ThinkPad X1 foldable teases future of ultraportable laptops

Share

A foldable PC and AR/VR headset grabbed the headlines at Lenovo's Accelerate press event, but a new laptop family also announced today will probably do more for the company's bottom line in the short term. Well, kind of. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 prototype you're about to see will launch in the first half of 2020 for an undisclosed price.

According to Lenovo, the device will be marketed as a full-fledged laptop rather than a tablet or foldable phone. Created to deliver powerful performance in an ultra-portable size, the ThinkCentre M90n is the most compact commercial desktop series in the world at the current time says Lenovo. Just like the Galaxy Fold, this ThinkPad device latches magnetically, leaving a small gap near the hinge.

The company plans for its new foldable offering to be a users "everything" device, (except make phone calls, from what we can tell). Sitting in laptop mode the half of the screen facing you will be a 9.6-inch diagonal section from fold to opposite top corner.

Lenovo claims this design allows for quite a bit of versatility.

The new ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2 will be available with multiple 15.6-inch display options that include a 4K OLED screen with multi-touch support. But whether they're practical and durable enough to withstand the rigors of day-to-day use is something we just don't know yet. It can also be flipped to be used in a vertical orientation so that it resembles an oversized digital book. For more details jump over to the official Lenovo website by following the link below.

My time with Lenovo's foldable PC was short.

A Bluetooth keyboard comes with the foldable device and is a must for working professionals. It is very comfortable to hold with one hand, it is not awkward to fold it up, and when the computer is flat on the table, there is no obvious crease. The laptop has two USB-C ports, is powered by Intel and will run Windows, but not much else is known about its inner workings.
