ThinkPad X1 Fold redefines the personal computing category by unfolding new possibilities with the world’s first split screen experience
Lenovo, the global technology leader, today announced the launch of the ThinkPad X1 Fold in Sri Lanka. The ThinkPad X1 Fold is the first of its kind in a new personal computing category that will push boundaries and redefine how we engage with technology and eliminate security threats while working and learning from home.
This latest addition in the ThinkPad family adapts to the new remote, office, and hybrid working models, enabling trailblazers to embrace ground-breaking innovation that will empower creativity, collaboration, and entertainment as it seamlessly transforms to their specific needs.
The X1 Fold offers a revolutionary mix of portability and versatility that defines a new computing category enabled by Intel® Core™ processors, with Intel® Hybrid Technology and Intel’s Project Athena innovation program. These processors are engineering innovations, that provide a hybrid CPU architecture for power and performance in a US dime-sized ultra-mobile form factor.
The ThinkPad X1 Fold continues the ThinkPad legacy of trusted quality and reliability thanks to its durable multilink torque hinge design. It went through additional testing to make sure the screen could handle the stresses of being opened and closed thousands of times.
Covered in an attractive leather folio, the ThinkPad X1 Fold looks more like a sketchbook than a laptop. At just 2.2 lbs (999g), it provides a split-screen experience and comes with a brilliant and seamless folding OLED screen that provides a full 33.52cms (13.3 inches) 2K display. The device comes bundled with the Lenovo Easel Stand for easy portrait or landscape placement on a desk, and a Bluetooth Mini Fold Keyboard that nests inside the system and are wirelessly charged by being magnetized to the screen when the system is closed.
Users can browse online, stream a video, or watch a presentation, while using the Thinkpad X1 Fold like a tablet, relying on the built-in kickstand or the optional easel to hold it up. Lenovo Mode Switcher app anticipates user movements quickly, and easily allows them to split the screen in two or use full width for one large display.
The ThinkPad X1 Fold offers a true smartphone-like experience in an always-connected PC. Speedy WiFi 6 and the optional 4G / 5G service enable users to enjoy faster and uninterrupted video streaming.
The X1 Fold comes equipped with the Dolby Access app that uses Dolby Atmos technology to simulate 3D sound. The different sound profiles empower creators and users to customize the sound to the correct content (Music, Movies, Games, etc.) or simply allow Dolby Access to identify it and provide automatic adjustments with the dynamic profile.
Naveen Kejriwal, Sales Head – Overseas, Lenovo India said, “With the ThinkPad X1 Fold, we aim to provide our users with the first-ever foldable screen experience in a PC. It will transform productivity on the go for individuals who frequently switch between phones, tablets, and laptops, and are striving for newer benefits and possibilities. With the onset of a hybrid working world, we found that most people want a laptop experience without carrying a laptop for true mobility. The ultra-light and ultra-mobile X1 Fold was developed with this consumer insight in mind. These are exciting times for Lenovo as we are pioneering and establishing a new foldable PC category, which will reshape users’ eperience while working from home, the office, and anywhere in between.”
