The attention last week was very much on the new Motorola Razr, but at Lenovo Tech World the company also showed off their Project Limitless 5G laptop and folding Lenovo ThinkPad X1.
Shown off by Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing, the device features a folding 13.3-inch 2K OLED display which comes with a stand and docking station. Interestingly the folding screen for the laptop is made by the same company, BOE, as the Motorola Razr, which is encouraging from a durability and performance point of view.
Lenovo first showed off the device in May this year and since then Microsoft has announced Windows 10 X, which is specially designed for dual-screen laptops.
Lenovo did not reveal the exact pricing and availability details yet but did say the device is expected in Q2 2020.
Lenovo and Qualcomm also made much of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx-powered Project Limitless laptop with the Snapdragon X55 5G modem.
Lenovo said the laptop can download at 1 Gb/sec and was ready for 8K streaming, all while sipping at the battery due to the ARM processor.
“At Lenovo, we don’t innovate for the sake of technology alone. Everything we do is about improving people’s experience,” said Lenovo’s Consumer Business of Intelligent Devices Group senior vice president and general manager, Johnson Jia.
“With real 5G in a PC, it’s all about satisfying users’ need for speed: faster file transfers and streaming in 4K, 8K and even AR/VR; faster and higher quality video chats on-the-go; even faster screen refreshes for mobile gaming. When we say limitless connectivity, we mean it – 5G PC users the world-over will save time, stay productive, or get online entertainment from nearly anywhere, at any time.”
Like the ThinkPad X1, Lenovo also remained quiet about pricing and availability but we expect its arrival some time in Q1 2020.
