It costs a fortune, but promises to be revolutionary, the first gadget with a foldable screen running Windows 10 was revealed by Lenovo and is available for pre-order.
If you’ve developed a fascination for devices built around a foldable screen, but you’re upset that you can only find them with Android, Lenovo has a solution for you. It has just announced the ThinkPad X1 Fold, the world’s first foldable tablet with Windows 10. Illustrated in the accompanying images, it was originally announced in May 2019, but has suffered numerous delays. It is now available for order and you should have it at your door in a few weeks.
If you have $ 2,500 to invest in a tablet, the ThinkPad X1 Fold comes with a 13.3-inch OLED screen with a 4: 3 aspect ratio and a native resolution of 2048 x 1536. It has a light output of 300 nits, which should be sufficient for reasonable use in the sun. In addition, it displays 95% of the DCI-P3 gamut. As a reference, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 has 7.6 inches, so Lenovo’s creation offers almost double the workspace.
It runs Windows 10, as mentioned above, but the hardware configuration is not to be discarded either. You have a Core i5-L16G7 at 1.4GHz with 3.0Ghz in Turbo Boost mode. It comes bundled with 8GB of RAM and can be purchased with an SSD of up to 1TB. The battery has 50Wh and is charged via USB C to 65W. It weighs in at 999 grams, and its dimensions when closed are 236 x 158.2 x 27.8 millimeters.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold comes with a leather cover that includes a stand. Optionally, you can also buy the keyboard in the image above. It works on Bluetooth. It can be hidden in the tablet when closed and charged wirelessly. Connectivity includes Wi-Fi 6 and, optionally, 5G, in addition to two USB-C ports.
