Lenovo, Intel and Dell show laptops with folding screens
Computer makers Lenovo and Dell and chip manufacturer Intel have shown laptops with folding screens, whereby the screen also takes the place of the keyboard.
All three laptops were presented at the CES gadget fair in Las Vegas.
The Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Fold has one large OLED screen of 13.3 inches that covers the entire device. By folding the device in the middle, it can be placed as a laptop.
On the touchscreen at the bottom, a keyboard can be displayed, or app-specific options appear. There is also a unique cover with which a physical keyboard can be added to the laptop. It is also possible to set the tablet upright so that you can wirelessly connect a separate mouse and keyboard.
The laptop runs on Windows 10 and will later receive support for Windows 10X. This new variant of the operating system is currently being developed for the Surface Neo, a Microsoft tablet with two screens.
With the laptop, Lenovo follows the example of the smartphone market, where Huawei and Samsung, among others, already brought foldable phones to the market. More and more manufacturers can produce flexible screens that are required for this.
