Lenovo details the ThinkPad X1 Fold and opens up pre-orders

Back in May 2019, Lenovo first introduced its plan to make a ThinkPad X1 PC with a foldable display, and it unveiled the device in all its glory at CES. It comes with a 13.3-inch 4:3 2048x1536 OLED display, giving you two 9.6-inch 3:2 displays when it's folded.

There were still a couple of details left out at CES though, mainly because the Intel processors to be used weren't actually announced yet. It's confirmed now that it will use Intel's Lakefield chips, which use the firm's Hybrid technology. That means that it has a big core and four small cores, adopting an architecture that's similar to big.LITTLE on ARM.

The X1 Fold is something that you're really going to want for the foldable screen, because the rest of the specs don't match the price. It comes with 8GB LPDDR4X 4267MHz memory, a USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C port, a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, and it weighs in at 999g. It also comes with optional 5G.

But the big news is that while Lenovo still hasn't offered a concrete date of when you'll receive one, you can pre-order starting today. It starts at $2,499, and if you want to check it out, you can find it on Lenovo.com here.
