After a brief appearance nine months ago, Lenovo unveiled more details about its first collapsible computer, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, at the recent CES 2020 show. The device is known to have a collapsible 13.3-inch 2K pOLED screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio, a stand, docking station and a magnetically stationable and wirelessly charged Bluetooth Mini Fold keyboard.
The laptop is made of lightweight alloys and carbon fiber, equipped with Intel Core processors with Intel Hybrid and Intel UHD Gen 11 technology, 8GB LPDDR4X RAM up to 4267MHz and up to 1TB PCIe-NVMeM.2 2242 Ssds. It also features a unique multi-link torque hinge mechanism construction that weighs less than 1 kg.
Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Fold features a 5MP HD RGB camera and an IR camera for facial recognition, a stereoscopic speaker for Dolby sound, 50W battery capacity, and promises 11-hour battery life and fast charging.
On the port side, the PC offers a USB Type-C Gen1 port, a USB Type-C Gen2 port, a DISPLAYPort via USB Type-C, WiFi 6 (802.11ax), Bluetooth 5.0, with a SIM card slot, and support for 5G / LTE / 4G (Cat.20).
Open edgy at 299.4 x 236.0 x 7.8 mm (11.5 mm thickness with lid) and 158.2 x 236.0 x 27.8 mm with folding caps, weighing 999 g.
It follows news that many OEMs have delayed the sale of collapsible devices because of the Windows 10X operating system. This has been confirmed by Lenovo officials that the company will release the ThinkPad X1 Fold with Windows 10 in 2020 and the Version of Windows 10X later to improve the “collapsible experience.” The laptop retails for $2,499.
