According to Quartz, Tuesday (05/14/2019), Lenovo has announced a ThinkPad X1 prototype laptop that can be folded at annual sales events. The announcement of the prototype was intended to show the goals that Lenovo saw in the future in the field of computing.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Specifications
Lenovo announced that they saw an upcoming X1 device replacing orthodox computers, giving widescreen experience in Windows devices in a small package. The result is a 13.3-inch 4:3 2K OLED display that can fold up to about the size of a hardcover book (with weight less than two pounds). The ThinkPad X1, which can be folded by itself, doesn’t have a pricetag yet, but the X1 product line is usually intended for high-end computers.
Lenovo is staying tight-lipped about the exact details about the product, but here’s what we do know: it’ll run Windows and offer an Intel CPU. There are no details beyond that, and specs like RAM or even battery life estimates are being kept under wraps (although Lenovo says it’s aiming for a full day of use).
Although it has revealed a prototype, Lenovo is still fiddling with the product. For example, finding out how the physical keyboard will enter the computer.

However, the prototype does not feel like an unfinished gadget. The hinges allow the screen to be tilted firmly to various viewing angles when folded inward, allowing total flexibility to suit your needs.
The large, high-resolution screen at 13.3 inches looks bright and sharp, but curved. Although there is still a lot of tinkering to be made, this new device shows how Lenovo sees the future.
Lenovo has been working on this device for the past three years. The Chinese laptop manufacturer plans to release this foldable laptop until 2020. The device does not seem to have problems when running Windows.
