The Lenovo has shown off its foldable laptop on many occasions, but has finally made it available for sale. The new Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Fold was announced back in May 2019. The manufacturer advertises the device as the world’s first flexible screen computer.
The display is the main and, perhaps, the only highlight of the laptop. It is based on a 13.3-inch OLED panel when unfolded. When folded, each half measures 9.6 inches. Despite the complex hinge mechanism, moreover, consisting exclusively of metal components, the laptop turned out to be very light – the weight is 999 grams.

Also in the configuration of the device are Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 adapters, a 5G modem, a USB-C port, a 5 megapixel front camera, supplemented with an infrared camera and a 50 Wh battery.
