Lenovo have recently displayed their new ThinkPad X1 tablet with a foldable OLED display.
The product is the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold and it actually looks really really cool.
Its folding OLED screen and included magnetically-attached keyboard and clip-on stylus mean you can assemble a mini laptop-like workstation, or pop the unfolded screen onto a stand for a full-blown PC-like experience, or simply use it as a tablet.
Here are some of the stats for this device.
- 13.3-inch Plastic OLED display, 4:3 aspect ratio, 2048 x 1536 resolution (QXGA)
- 2x USB-C (1x Gen 1, 1x Gen 2), 1x SIM card (4G & 5G options)

- Unfolded: 299.4 x 236.0 x 7.8mm
- Folded: 158.2 x 236.0 x 27.8mm

The X1 Fold runs Windows 10 Pro, although a Windows 10X model is coming when the new OS is available.
Performance & Specs

Lenovo says that this is meant for people that frequently switch between their phone, tablet, and PC, creating something that bridges the gaps without making compromises.
The laptop supports 5G, using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X55 modem. It’s unclear if this feature will be optional or if it will come standard, but being that it’s an Intel product, expect to pay a premium for 5G.
