Lenovo gives up on Windows 10X, show off ThinkPad X1 Fold with Windows 10

We reported in January that Lenovo was planning to release their foldable tablet with Windows 10, and then to offer a Windows 10 X version when the OS eventually becomes available.

Since then Microsoft has kicked Windows 10X into the long grass, with the OS possible expected sometime in 2021.

Lenovo’s contingency plan, therefore, appears to have paid off, and a newly uploaded video by Lenovo now shows the tablet only running Windows 10.
