Lenovo has demonstrated that foldable tablets are here to stay, as they announced their second generation foldable tablet today called Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold (2022):
Lenovo says it will be released in 2023 with model variations starting from $2499.
The choices are between Intel Core U9 i5 and i7 processors, with up to 32GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and 1TB Gen 4 SSD storage.
And the screen has the same dimensions as before. It measures 16.3 inches when folded out, and 12 inches when folded. The resolution is 2560 x 2024 on a 600 nits bright OLED display with Lenovo Pen support.
Both the 3 speakers and the 4 mics (with Dolby Voice) are set up so that both the input and output is always in stereo when the user rotates between portrait and landscape mode. So not only will the user benefit from this, but the receiver at the other end of video calls too.
The camera is a 5MP RGB+IR Intel VSC option, and it also has options of 5G, though the latest Wi-Fi 6E is standard already.
Other specs are 2x Thunderbolt 4 ports, a USB C 3.2 port, BT 5.2, and a fingerprint reader.
Like before, it still features the wireless keyboard that you can place anywhere you like.
Unfolded the tablet is just 8.6mm thick, but fold it once and it naturally becomes 17.4mm thick. The weight of it is 1.28 kg.
