Some manufacturers have been using the foldable smartphone for a few months. This is especially true for Samsung, but also for Motorola with its Razr, whose V2 is expected in stores very soon. On the Lenovo side, we’ve just updated the ThinkPad range. The catalog does not contain a smartphone, but a foldable computer.
ThinkPad X1 Fold, the computer that folds up
The ThinkPad X1 Fold is already available for pre-order from Lenovo (starting at $ 2,499) and a Windows 10 computer that is shaped like a large tablet with a diagonal of 13.3 inches Show a 2K image (1536 x 2048 pixels) on. Everything is organized around an OLED panel and promises to be “Forever change the way you work, play, create and connect”.
In fact, this results in a 13-inch tablet, which can therefore be inferred about itself like a book and whose display can be adapted to its use. It is entirely possible to use the ThinkPad X1 Fold in laptop mode and use the lower half of the screen as a touch keyboard.
You can also put the mini-keyboard down for more convenience or even deploy the entire 13-inch OLED screen, insert the small foot in the back and use the keyboard remotely. Of course you can also use the ThinkPad X1 Fold as a book.
Under the hood, the ThinkPad X1 Fold offers the 11th generation of Intel processors, not to mention 8 GB of RAM, 256 SSD storage and a 50 Wh battery. Everything is simply charged via a USB Type-C cable and operated with this good old Windows 10 Home 64. Note that both the Lenovo Mini Keyboard and Lenovo Mod Pen are optional.
