From never-before-seen form factors to new user experiences, Lenovo last week revealed the new innovation in the history by unveiling the world’s first foldable PC at Lenovo Accelerate 2019. The company claims that the new device is made for highly mobile, tech-savvy professionals who demand the best tools.
The new foldable PC joins the premium ThinkPad X1 family, promising that the unprecedented portability will in no way compromise productivity and reliability. This is not a phone, tablet, or familiar hybrid; this is a full-fledged laptop with a foldable screen.
We all want access to a large comfortable screen even on the go, but travel can make this inconvenient or impossible. Never mind that remote work increased 140 percent from 2008 to 2016, with more and more employees taking time-sensitive, media-intensive projects with them everywhere.
In the past, a 13.3-inch screen on a laptop demanded that the device stay at that same size footprint, not so with this single OLED 2K display made in collaboration with LG Display that can fold in half and reduce its width by 50 percent. Intel-powered with Windows, the foldable ThinkPad combines laptop productivity with smartphone portability and will be available only in 2020.
