Foldable Windows tablet Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold now on pre-order

Peter, 29 September 2020

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold – the first foldable tablet in the world – is finally available for pre-order. “Finally” because this device was tentatively announced back in May 2019 and was supposed to be out in the first half of this year. Anyway, it’s ready to ship out in the next few weeks.

The X1 has a 13.3” display, an OLED panel with 4:3 aspect ratio and 2,048 x 1,536 px resolution. It boasts 300 nits brightness and 95% coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut. This is much larger than Galaxy Z Fold2’s 7.6” display, a proper tablet though you can also think of it as an ultrabook.

It runs Windows 10 on an Intel Core i5-L16G7 processor (5 cores/5 threads, 1.4 GHz base and 3.0 GHz boost frequencies). It is configured with 8 GB of RAM (LPDDR4X 4,267 Mhz, soldered) and an NVMe SSD up to 1 TB. The battery capacity is 50 Wh and it charges over USB-C with a 65 W power brick.

The device weighs 999 g (2.2 lbs) and measures 236.0 x 158.2 x 27.8 mm when closed. The device comes with a leather cover with an integrated kickstand.

The optional Lenovo Fold Bluetooth keyboard has a touchpad and an eye loop to hold the Mod Pen stylus. Interestingly, the keyboard fits between the two halves of the display when it’s folded and it charges wirelessly. When opening, you can leave the keyboard covering the bottom half of the display, transforming it into a traditional laptop.

Digital nomads will appreciate the on-board Wi-Fi 6 and optional 5G connectivity. There are also two USB-C ports (one Gen 1 and one Gen 2).

Pre-orders for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold start today, you can find it on Lenovo.com – but be prepared to part with $2,500 (and this is with a 256 GB SSD).

Overpriced with an underpowered processor. The form factor is the only reason to even think of buying one. That too for adventurous people. But the price tag is a bit too much. You could get an ipad pro and be left with enough to buy a Zephyrus g14.....

Sure that makes sense. However, those apps are not optimised to be used with a touch screen. They work great with a mouse & keyboard, though. There are a very fewer good/popular apps available on windows store optimised to be used on a tablet wit...

Well you definitely can use non-standard apps on a Windows tablet even in tablet mode. I know that because I have a Dell Latitude 7200 2-in-1 tablet running Windows 10 Pro, and I have no problem installing any x64 softwares or games in it.
