Chinese computermaker Lenovo has announced it’s working on the ThinkPad X1 laptop with a 2K foldable display. The device was shown during a company presentation in Orlando, Florida. The laptop has no physical keyboard, but comes with an external Bluetooth keyboard and stylus.
It’s the world’s first PC with foldable screen. Lenovo says: “This is not a phone, tablet, or familiar hybrid; this is a full-fledged laptop with a foldable screen.”
Coming next year
The laptop runs Windows and is powered by a Intel CPU (specs unknown). It has a 13.3-inch touchscreen that can fold in half and is produced by LG Display in Korea. The prototype that Lenovo showed weighs 2 pounds. It will come commercially available in 2020. Price has yet to be announced.
