Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold looks ready to launch, at least in China. The company has recently published a teaser on Weibo which, although it does not reveal a precise date, shows the "first foldable laptop in the world" warm up … hinges for his big debut. The only information that the image reveals is the weight: just 999 grams. But it was a fact already known.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold has only one folding screen – a technology we already know in the smartphone world, thanks to products like the Samsung Galaxy Fold (and successor, when it arrives), the Z Flip or the Moto RAZR. It had never been seen on computers yet. Lenovo first showed the device in late 2019, and a few months later the final version arrived at CES 2020. The screen is a 13.3 "OLED, 4: 3 aspect ratio and resolution 2,048 x 1,536 pixels. The RAM amounts to 8 GB and the SSD goes up to 1 TB.
We don't know what the processor is – Lenovo said it's Intel, it's next-generation, and it has "hybrid technology," whatever that means. On the operating system side, however, it is safe to assume that there will be a version of Windows 10 Pro optimized for this type of device – perhaps Windows 10X would have been better, but as we know Microsoft had to postpone it.
The best Galaxy of 2020? Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, on offer today by Mobzilla at 635 euros or from Unieuro at 739 euros.
