Lenovo unveils a ThinkPad, which is the first one of its sorts. The ThinkPad X1 Fold, as it is called, may remind many of the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The latest one comes with a 13-inch OLED laptop screen. Preorders for this product have started now, at $2499.
An important feature of this device is that it can work as a big tablet when not folded. The entire screen can also be converted into two displays, and it can give the user a feeling of viewing two screens simultaneously. The device can also be rotated such that it is in a horizontal position so that the user can use it as a 13-inch notebook. A detachable keyboard is also available. For using the ThinkPad like a notebook, the user can use this keyboard, which is completely optional, along with an easel stand.
Another variation of using this device is that it can be folded maximum up to an angle of 90 degrees in the vertical position wherein it resembles a mini laptop. A keyboard automatically appears in the bottom half of the device. It can also be used as a book when rotated horizontally while it is folded. Here, the user has the option of using a stylus if he wishes to.
The device has been designed such that its portability is very easy. One can fold up the ThinkPad and carry it easily in a bag as it does not require a lot of space.
A prototype of the ThinkPad X1 Fold was available for testing during the CES event held in Las Vegas in January this year.
As far as the other specifications are concerned, the ThinkPad X1 Fold is equipped with 11th Gen Intel Processors. Along with this, there are 2 USB-C ports and a slot designed for holding the SIM card. Furthermore, the device consists of 8GB of RAM. It has a storage space of 1TB and a battery with a capacity of 50Wh.
And finally, the device’s weight is about 2.2 pounds, and it is designed to be compatible with 5G.
The ThinkPad X1 Nano
The ThinkPad X1 Nano, another ThinkPad unveiled by Lenovo, is one of the lightest ThinkPad ever. It weighs a mere 1.99 pounds. The device is developed on Intel’s latest Evo platform, ensuring that the laptops would have long-lasting and fast-charging batteries. Also, the typical boot-time of laptops developed on this platform is pretty less. Evo systems also contain Intel’s 11th Gen Tiger Lake processors along with Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 4.
The other specifications of Nano include a 13-inch 2K 16:10 display, which is having the options of both touch and non-touch. Lenovo claims that the device height is equivalent to a 14-inch 16:9 screen. The ThinkPad X1 Nano also brings along with it many security features developed with the help of AI. For instance, the device is capable of keeping track of user movements and act accordingly. T wakes up when it realizes that the user is walking towards it, and it can lock itself when the user is going away.
Also, the Nano is equipped with Gen 11 Intel processors, a RAM of about 16 GB, a battery having a power up to 48Wh, and four microphones of 360 degrees. It comes along with Intel’s graphics that are integrated with Xe. Again, this one is also compatible with 5G and can run on Windows 10 Pro and Linux OS. The ThinkPad X1 Nano will be available sometime early next year at a starting price of about $1399.
