Lenovo unveils world’s first foldable PC

Lenovo unveils world’s first foldable PC

At the Accelerate conference in Florida, Lenovo showed off the world's first foldable PC prototype. In our hands-on review of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 foldable PC prototype, we noticed that there is a slight delay as Windows orientates itself when you fold the PC. The display will feature vibrant OLED technology from LG, 2K resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio.

Continuing with the hardware, Lenovo said an Intel processor powers the foldable PC. According to the company, the new foldable PC is targeted at highly mobile, tech-savvy professionals who demand the best tools.

The special torque hinge of Lenovo's foldable screen allows it to be used in different configurations - be it a tablet, a laptop-like device, or a media player with the screen folded into a "tent" shape.

There's still a lot of details we don't know about the device like how much it'll cost (my guess is it'll be really expensive) and how well apps will adapt to the different modes when the screen is bent.

As promising as the hardware is, the Galaxy Fold reminded us that foldable devices are still in their infancy. Lenovo hasn't revealed the specifications of the laptop, or even its final name for that matter. But why settle for a 7- or 8-inch screen when you could have a whole laptop?

The age of the foldable device is upon us! The company did talk a bit about the screen though.

They note the space-saving ThinkPad X1 combines laptop productivity with smartphone portability to fold into your lifestyle like never before. To simply call it a "foldable laptop" would be to imply all laptops aren't foldable, but to call it a "foldable tablet" would be inaccurate. The device will run on the latest version of Windows and an Intel chipset. It is a natural extension of Lenovo's previous attempts to innovate the PC form factor including the dual-screen Yoga Book C930.

A 9.6-inch touchscreen keyboard is way too small for comfortable, prolonged use, so fortunately the device also comes with a Bluetooth mechanical keyboard. Should it ship as expected next year, look to Notebookcheck for what will be the most comprehensive review on the web.
