Finally, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Fold is on the outskirts of the market in 2020, and this device has many features that will appear in the market easily.

Just a Glance

The Lenovo ThinkPad is the first proper real foldable PC actually hitting the market in 2020,

it’s not totally new Lenovo basically teased this in 2019, they revealed they were working on a folding device. 

but this is the first time they’re revealing more concrete specs details.

in case you don’t know that basically Lenovo business line, this isn’t being pushed to consumers under the yoga brand.

This is really looking at a business audience that actually makes sense for a few reasons. 

one in that ThinkPads are pretty well known for their durability, foldable devices are not, and Lenovo really came to make sure that whatever they put out. 

people could trust that it was going to last, it was going to work and it wasn’t gonna break and that you could kind of throw it around a little bit. 

so they figured going with the ThinkPad branding and then the ThinkPad team built it, would basically mean that would work better.

Design

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold has a unique design that is completely new and unconventional. It resembles a luxury leather notebook when closed.

The front cover is made of premium leather, so it will not feel cheap or not durable, and the panel is glossy black and gives an attractive contrast.

When you open the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, you will see an attractive and flexible OLED screen.

Thanks to the foldable screen, when you close it, the horizontal length of the X1 Fold is cut in half,

which in turn doubles its thickness, as the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold is 1.1 inches thick.

The ThinkPad X1 Fold weighs 2.2 pounds, so you don’t have to worry about any problems carrying the X1 Fold or slipping it in your backpack during the commute to the office.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold has thicker edges, which is an advantage so you don’t accidentally scroll the screen.

This thick frame also provides a barrier between the flexible plastic screen and the outer edge to increase production.
