  • - Hey, it's Chaim with The Verge and at this point,

  • you've probably heard of the folding phone trend,

  • but this isn't a folding phone.

  • It's a folding PC.

  • (upbeat music)

  • This is a prototype folding PC

  • from Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 line of laptops,

  • and it's exactly what it sounds like.

  • It's a full Windows laptop that you can also fold up.

  • Now what we're using here is a really early prototype,

  • and a lot of the specs haven't really been announced yet,

  • but here's what we do know.

  • It's a 13.3-inch, 4:3 folding display,

  • similar in size to a Huawei MateBook X Pro

  • when it's unfolded, and it's about the size

  • of a hardcover book when it is folded up.

  • The hardware here is by no means final.

  • Lenovo has plans to add an IR camera for Windows Hello

  • and video calls somewhere on the top over here,

  • that's just not on this prototype yet.

  • And things like port placement might get moved around

  • in the final design, too.

  • The idea, though, is the ports will be arranged

  • so that there's always one handy

  • no matter where you're using the device.

  • Whether that's standing up on your desk,

  • lying flat like a tablet, or on your lap.

  • There's also going to be a SIM card slot on the final version

  • somewhere for cellular connectivity,

  • but again, that's just not here yet.

  • Lenovo is promising, though, that the folding ThinkPad

  • is going to be a true laptop-class device.

  • It's not meant to be like a tablet

  • or a companion device that you take on the go

  • when you're away from your laptop,

  • like Lenovo's Yoga Book or Microsoft Surface Go.

  • To that end, Lenovo will be including a miniature keyboard

  • in the box with the folding laptop,

  • so that you won't have to rely on a weird software keyboard

  • or pay extra for an accessory.

  • It'll also come with a Wacom stylus, too.

  • Unfortunately, there's just not a lot we can show off here.

  • There is a functional version of Windows

  • running on this hardware, but the deeper

  • software integration from the foldable display

  • just isn't ready yet.

  • There are a few mock-ups that we can show, though,

  • of what it might be like to use a device like this.

  • So you can browse the web either using the entire display

  • as a touchscreen tablet, or by using the attached

  • keyboard and trackpad like you would with a laptop.

  • You can pull up documents,

  • so you can use it for reading or consulting

  • like it's a kind of digital book.

  • You can split the screen in half,

  • using one half to take notes with the stylus

  • or a digital keyboard, while keeping your source material

  • on the top half.

  • The whole device is pretty cleverly weighted, too.

  • It weighs less than two pounds,

  • but most of that weight is with the battery

  • on one half of the device,

  • so it stays upright on your lap without tipping over.

  • The hinge is pretty strong, too,

  • so it's easy to adjust to whatever angle you'd like.

  • The stylus is attached to the front of the device

  • and is part of the folding mechanism.

  • The front of the outside of the device

  • will actually slide upward when you unfold it,

  • which moves the stylus to the side over here

  • so that it's accessible to grab.

  • Using the device is nice, too.

  • It's a really good size.

  • It weighs about as much as a hardcover copy

  • of one of the larger Harry Potter books for comparison,

  • and the ability to hold it partially folded like a book

  • makes it really comfortable to hold in one hand

  • compared to, say, a rigid tablet,

  • despite the fact that this has a larger display.

  • There's still a lot we don't know about

  • the folding ThinkPad laptop.

  • There's no word yet on battery life,

  • although Lenovo says that it is targeting a full day.

  • And the company has been similarly mum about internal specs,

  • like the processor or RAM,

  • although it will have an Intel chip of some kind.

  • The screen isn't quite finalized yet either.

  • As you can see, the prototype here

  • has really poor viewing angles

  • with these blue-shifted colors

  • when you're tilting the device,

  • which is especially problematic given that

  • if you're using it partially folded,

  • one of those screens is going to be at an angle a lot.

  • To Lenovo's credit, though, the crease is really hard to see

  • and feel, even on this prototype hardware,

  • which is good to see.

  • Although, there's obviously big questions still

  • about the durability of foldable displays,

  • especially in the wake of Samsung's Galaxy Fold.

  • Lenovo does say that it's adding

  • a reinforced protective layer on top of the polymer

  • OLED panel for improved durability,

  • but we're going to have to wait and see how that holds up

  • in the real world before we make any judgements.

  • So yeah, there's still a lot we don't know.

  • We still don't know availability

  • outside of that vague "first half of 2020" window.

  • We don't know price.

  • We don't know what the specs on this thing are,

  • but it's a PC and it folds, which is really cool.
