Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold features
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold laptop features a 13.3-inch 2K (2,048×1,536 pixels) pOLED display made by LG Display that can be folded to allow for multiple use cases. There is a mechanical hinge between the display to allow for the foldable form factor. Users can use the ThinkPad X1 Fold in landscape mode to use it as a regular laptop or switch to portrait orientation to use it as a laptop and take notes or draw sketches with the Lenovo Active Pen. It has also included its easel stand for easy vertical or horizontal placement on a desk and the Mini Fold Bluetooth keyboard to make the ThinkPad X1 Fold perform like a traditional laptop.
Running up to Windows 10 Pro, Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold comes preloaded with the Lenovo Mode Switcher application, allowing the machine to change its orientation as per requirement. Users can also split the screen in two or use it across its width. Additionally, the laptop automatically adjusts to display the on-screen keyboard when Bluetooth is not in use.
