Everybody is talking about the foldable phones. But the tech industries have not stopped at this point. Lenovo has unveiled the World’s first foldable PC. Not yet assigned a name, but this foldable window PC will be the part of ThinkPad X1 Family. This foldable PC will be prototype ThinkPad. It will overcome the problem of Samsung galaxy fold Smartphone, of forming a bump in the centre due to fold.
Lenovo has been deciding for the last three years and finally announced to declare finished product in 2020. It is opposite to what the most mobile companies are trying to do. Samsung and Hawaii are trying to make a regular sized phone and make them large when unfolds. But Lenovo is trying to make a full sized laptop and make it smaller when folds.
Lenovo’s foldable PC is 13.3 inches and it folds in the size of a hardcover book. The aspect ratio 4:3 and have a screen resolution of 2K. It has an OLED display. The exact weight is not defined but the company says it will be less than two pounds. The prototype is ready having foldable display and windows but the software is not ready yet. In a folded form it looks like a beautiful book.
What are the modes of this foldable PC?
You can work with it totally unfolded like a tablet or partially folded like a book prototype. A wireless keyboard and trackpad make it easy to use as a full-sized PC. A Wacom pen also helps in its use. More interestingly you can place the PC on its side, with its bottom side working as a keyboard and upper side as its display. The right side of the display, which is used as a keyboard, has the battery. This gives it extra stability not to topple down.
Not exactly knowing the specs, it will run windows and an Intel CPU. There is a lot more to develop in this device. Till now it is only unfinished hardware. Battery timing is also not defined but the Lenovo is trying to last it for the whole day of use.
