If you thought Samsung’s Galaxy Fold represented the epitome of foldable smart devices, technology company Lenovo’s upcoming gadget might just dethrone the smartphone-tablet hybrid.
The device – which has yet to receive a name of its own – will join Lenovo’s line of ThinkPad X1 premium laptops, catered to “highly mobile, tech-savvy professionals”, said the company.
“We all want access to a large comfortable screen even on the go, but travel can make this inconvenient or impossible,” it added.
Lenovo also noted that the foldable PC will be in a league of its own, describing the device as neither a phone, tablet nor any sort of existing hybrid tech. The PC will simply be a “full-fledged laptop with a foldable screen”.
The newest member of the ThinkPad X1 family will boast a single OLED 2K display made in collaboration with LG Display which spans across the entire device. Folding the screen would effectively reduce the width of the PC by 50%, said Lenovo.
The laptop will be powered by Intel and built on Windows. No other technical specifications were revealed in the announcement.
Full product details and availability will be released in 2020, Lenovo added.
