Let’s Get Foldable
At its Accelerate conference on Monday, Chinese tech company Lenovo unveiled a prototype of what it’s calling “the world’s first foldable PC.”
“This is not a phone, tablet, or familiar hybrid,” the company wrote in a press release announcing the device. “This is a full-fledged laptop with a foldable screen.”
The company says it plans to begin selling the foldable laptop in 2020 — adding to the mounting evidence that foldable screens are going to be a staple of future tech (assuming the industry can work out the few remaining kinks).
Know When to Fold ‘Em
Lenovo hasn’t released too many details on the laptop — in fact, the device doesn’t even have a name yet.
What the company has shared is that the foldable laptop will be a member of the ThinkPad X1 family and that an Intel processor will power it. Lenovo also revealed that it created the device’s 13.3-inch 2K OLED display as part of a partnership with LG.
While the video Lenovo released of the laptop provides just a quick glimpse at new tech, Engadget did have a chance to get hands-on with the prototype, and the video the news outlet released offers a far more in-depth look at the device.
