At CES in January, Lenovo announced plans to release the fold-out-screen PC ThinkPad X1 Fold by 2020, with a Windows 10X system. Now that things have changed, however, thinkPad X1 Fold is likely to be the first to be equipped with Windows 10.

The reason is simple: Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 10X will be a priority for single-screen notebook release, the current optimization for dedicated folding notebook and dual-screen notebook is not perfect, so the Windows 10X system delayed its official release until 2021, which is not consistent with the release time of ThinkPad X1 Fold.
In addition, according to Lenovo’s latest uploaded video, the ThinkPad X1 Fold tablet only runs Windows 10. To sum up, this time is Microsoft dragged back.
From the previousmedia, for dual-screen devices and folding screen devices built Windows 10X focus on screen touch, the system integrates a lot of gesture slots, such as sliding can start the “start” menu, just like some Of Android launchers.
One situation that might offend traditional PC users is that the WIndows 10X’s multitasking parallelism is like the original Windows 8 system, either full screen, or split screen, and no windowed applications are allowed. Such an operation would make traditional PC users look less computer-like.
It weighs only 1 kg.
The ThinkPad X1 Fold is one of the more interesting products in a folded-screen notebook, with a collapsible 13.3-inch 4:3 OLED display panel, provided by LG Display, with a resolution of 2048 x 1536. The ThinkPad X1 Fold features a Bluetooth keyboard with a stand, docking station and magneticsuction hold for wireless charging. The ThinkPad X1 Fold is connected to a similar laptop to a regular laptop, and is taken off with a foldable tablet.
It’s worth noting that the ThinkPad X1 Fold has a good weight control of only 1 kg.
In the configuration section, thinkPad X1 Fold is expected to use Intel Core processors that support Intel Hybrid and Intel UHD Gen 11 technologies, up to 8GB of LPDDR4X memory, frequency 4267MHz, and up to 1TB SSD SSD. The range is expected to last up to 11 hours.
In the Interface section, ThinkPad X1 Fold offers two USB Type-C interfaces, WiFi 6 (802.11ax), Bluetooth 5.0, and a 5G network with a SIM card slot.
Unsurprisingly, Lenovo will release the ThinkPad X1 Fold with Windows 10 in the middle of the year, which will cost $2,499 (about $17,726), which, according to the video content, is not far from the time it is officially released.
