The ThinkPad X1 Fold is a fully functional laptop PC with a 13.3-inch folding OLED display and weighs less than 2.2 pounds/1kg. Co-engineered with Intel, the Always Connected PC is powered by Intel Core processors with Intel Hybrid Technology and will initially be available with Windows 10 in mid-2020.

Built from a combination of lightweight alloys and carbon fiber and covered in a luxurious leather folio cover, the X1 Fold will offer the durability and reliability. Lenovo is planning on offering ThinkPad X1 Fold with Windows 10X at a later date for an enhanced foldable user experience. It's also available with optional 5G connectivity.

As it morphs through multiple modes, from a small footprint device into a fully flat 13.3-inch display, X1 Fold will deliver laptop efficiency with smartphone portability. Lenovo has developed, specifically for Windows 10, clever mode-switching software to adapt to multiple use cases in new environments.

Unfolded, the X1 Fold is ideal for touch heavy content consumption with 13.3-inches of OLED display real estate and weighing less than 2.2 pounds (1kg). In landscape mode with the integrated kickstand in the leather folio case, users can review and annotate the latest presentation or use the Bluetooth Mini Fold Keyboard.

When folded closed, the keyboard is stored and wirelessly charged inside the system and secured with magnets. In portrait orientation, users can take notes or draw out concepts using the Active Pen or scroll through and sign a legal document. Fold the screen out completely flat and use as a tablet or bend it slightly to read a few chapters like a book.

In a more familiar laptop orientation, users can leverage two independent displays to optimize efficiency during certain multitasking activities. Participate in a video call on the upper screen while reviewing and editing a presentation on the lower screen. Compare documents, one above the other or take notes on one screen while watching a lecture on the other. These use cases can of course be done in portrait or landscape mode, whichever suits the user best.

Lenovo investigated four primary designs for X1 Fold and selected the 4×3 ratio with the 13.3-inch display in order to accomplish the best experience and highest level of productivity. And through the partnership with LG Display, Lenovo is setting new standards towards perfecting foldable screen technology.

After working through six different hinge designs and more than twenty different variations, Lenovo created a unique multi-link torque hinge mechanism to manage stresses during fold actions. The hinge mechanism, combined with lightweight alloys including a carbon fiber reinforced frame plate, optimizes the viewing experience when unfolded flat.
