Earlier this year, Lenovo announced what it calls the world’s first foldable PC – the ThinkPad X1 Fold. As the name suggests, this device has a single touch-sensitive 13-inch 2K display that folds in the middle across the two halves of the device joined by a hinge, similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold2. Lenovo has priced the ThinkPad X1 Fold starting at $2,499 and it is now up for pre-order in the US, while shipping commences in the upcoming weeks.
Talking about the internals, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold can be configured with an Intel Core i5-L16G7 processor that employs the Intel hybrid technology. It ticks alongside 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM and up to 1TB of PCIe SSD storage. There is a 5MP camera at the top alongside an IR sensor for Windows Hello login. Lenovo is offering the foldable device in multiple configurations and bundles that include the Lenovo Mod Pen and the Lenovo Fold Mini Bluetooth keyboard.
