Sure, foldable phones are intriguing, but have you considered foldable laptops? Lenovo has clearly been thinking about the concept for awhile, and today, it’s ready to unveil an early preview of its latest experimental efforts. At its Accelerate conference in Florida, the company showed off the world’s first foldable PC prototype, and we got to check it out at a recent briefing in New York.
The as-yet-unnamed device is intended to be part of the ThinkPad X1 family as a laptop replacement. Although the prototype is still incomplete, Lenovo has plenty of time to refine it before its official launch in 2020. Since it’s such early days, the company isn’t sharing many details on specs, though I expect we’ll get more information come CES. Lenovo has a lot of secrets it wants to protect, lest its competitors get inspired to borrow some features, but here’s what we do know.
