Ground-breaking ThinkPad X1 Fold offers boosted productivity for today’s hyper-mobile environments, available for pre-order now.

Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, December 09, 2020 – Lenovo announced that its latest technology breakthrough, the ThinkPad X1 Fold PC, is soon landing in Saudi Arabia. The launch builds on Lenovo’s extensive history of evolving its ThinkPad sub-brand, leveraging the latest in foldable technology and connectivity to meet agile working requirements and staying connected while on-the-go.

Durable Design

The ThinkPad X1 reimagines the possibilities of mobile computing by shifting from its compact and foldable form into a crisp 13.3-inch OLED display – weighing in at less than 1 kilogram. Constructed from lightweight alloys and carbon fiber, the X1 Fold offers both portability and durability, while its leather folio cover provides a premium look.

With more than four years of research and development behind the PC, the ThinkPad X1 Fold builds on the reliability and performance ThinkPad devices are synonymous with. The X1 Fold features multi-layer frames to support and protect the display, while a unique multi-link torque hinge mechanism ensures the smoothest folding experience. The OLED display has also undergone extensive performance and durability testing, ranging from the ball dropping to pen tapping and dynamic stress tests.

Seamless Performance

Co-engineered with Intel, the X1 Fold features Always Connected PC, powered by Intel Core Processors with Intel Hybrid Technology. Users requiring additional speed and connectivity can also opt for a 5G-enabled version of the device.

For ease-of-use, the ThinkPad X1 Fold comes with unique mode-switching software designed specifically for Windows 10. This technology enables the PC to seamlessly adapt to multiple use cases, depending on user preferences and their surrounding environment.

Multiple Modes

As an ultra-versatile device, the ThinkPad X1 Fold enables users to leverage two independent displays to optimize efficiency. Scenarios may include participating in a video call using the upper screen while taking notes or editing a lower screen presentation. Use cases include the flexibility to operate the X1 Fold in either portrait or landscape mode for added convenience.

When used in landscape mode, the integrated kickstand within the leather folio cover ensures optimal viewing angles. The X1 Fold comes with a Bluetooth Mini Fold Keyboard – a slim accessory that can be wirelessly charged inside the system and secured using magnets. For faster note-taking, signing of documentation, and creative brainstorms, users can harness the Active Pen.
