On October 28, Lenovo released a new generation of folding screen notebook ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022. Compared with the previous generation, the ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022 not only has a larger screen, but also leaves no gaps when folded with a teardrop-shaped hinge, with a thickness of only 17.4mm. And through the movable inner and outer double-layer skeleton design, the shear stress generated by the section during folding is greatly offset, so that the ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022 will not have obvious creases after repeated folding.
In order to ensure durability, the ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022 is covered with a nylon material re-made from recycled materials, with carbon fiber to ensure strength and portability. In terms of configuration, the ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022 can be equipped with the 12th generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 32GB LPDDR5 memory, and 1TB NVMe 4.0 SSD, with a battery life of up to 11 hours. For users with more mobile office needs, taking into account the large screen , portable, efficient productivity and long-lasting battery life.
In order to make better use of the advantages of folding screen design, ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022 is deeply adapted with Mode Switcher 2.0 software, which can flexibly display the task interface in full screen or split screen state, and help users work in the most efficient way in different business scenarios. done efficiently. Moreover, the machine also provides Wi-Fi and 5G versions to ensure a more flexible connection experience and work efficiently anytime, anywhere.
Another point worth paying attention to, ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022 also brings a new magnetic Bluetooth keyboard, digital stylus and other accessories. The full-size magnetic bluetooth keyboard created by Lenovo this time not only provides force feedback touchpad and fingerprint recognition, but also brings the “little red dot”, the symbol of ThinkPad, and the interactive experience is greatly upgraded.
Although it is still a disruptive product form in the notebook field, the reliability that the ThinkPad family has inherited for many years will not be absent. ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022’s original “graphite bridge + immortal wing” heat dissipation system enables heat to be conducted between the B and C surfaces of the notebook, and the “immortal wing” at the bottom hinge can form a complete heat flow channel in the middle of the screen, combined with heat conduction The active metal magnesium frame further improves the heat dissipation efficiency of the fuselage and ensures stable performance.
The ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022 is expected to be released in December, and the product price has not yet been announced.
We are no strangers to folding screens, especially driven by mobile phone manufacturers, folding screens are already a “common” terminal device. However, in the past few years, despite the rapid development of folding screen technology and product design, there is still a lot of room for exploration of application scenarios. There is still a lot of work to be done on how to leverage the advantages of folding screens and improve user experience through product software and hardware collaboration. At least the coolness alone is not enough to impress most users.
Although there are still many challenges, it is undeniable that the folding screen can make people shine in a market with serious homogeneity. Especially when users want to take into account the seemingly “contradictory” features such as large screen, portability, and performance in a certain type of notebook, a folding screen may be the best answer at present. ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022 not only shows ThinkPad’s creativity and dedication to notebook innovation, but also brings some new interactive modes of notebooks, which may be the “efficient productivity” we are looking for in the new normal of hybrid office. .
