Lenovo is known for its innovative products and in 2019 we were shown its new innovation – it’s own foldable laptop names ThinkPad X1 Fold which was just a concept a year back. Now at CES 2020, Lenovo has announced its first foldable laptop – the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold.
This foldable laptop features a 13.3-inch OLED display when it is completely unfolded having a resolution of 2048×1536 pixels which is truly great for a foldable screen to have. You have various configurations of actually using this device, you can even use it as a regular laptop mode by folding it and popping the keyboard on the screen.
