Lenovo has shown off its foldable laptop several times, and today a historic event has finally happened. The new Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Fold is on sale. The manufacturer advertises the device as the world’s first flexible screen computer.
The screen 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.
