Lenovo beat the competition by premiering the industry’s first flexible laptop. The company has already shown the unique ThinkPad X1 Fold and they are ready with a new version. The second generation of the device offers an update of most hardware components.
The new model comes two years after the original version and features higher speed, better design and a bigger screen. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Gen 2 is now equipped with a 16.3-inch display with OLED technology, which supports 2560×2024 resolution. The company has figured out how to reduce the body by 25% and provide an almost bezel-less design despite the flexible form factor.
The maximum brightness of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Gen 2 exceeds 600 nits, which is double the 300 nits of the original model, which is a 13.3” screen. Users will have a variety of configuration options. Lenovo will market models with Core i9, Core i7 and Core i5 processors with Intel vPro functionality.
The most powerful version of the ThinkPad X1 Fold Gen 2 will have a 1 terabyte disk and 32GB of LPDDR5 RAM. The built-in battery has a capacity of 48Whr and is optimized for 65W charging. Connectivity options are standard and include Thunderbolt 4.0, USB-C and a nano SIM card slot. Support for sub-6 GHz 5G networks and Bluetooth 5.2 are also part of the laptop’s specifications.
Improvements also await us in the wireless keyboard for the ThinkPad X1 Fold Gen 2, which is its key accessory. Official sales start in November.
