Lenovo unveils the 'world's first foldable PC'

At its annual Accelerate conference today, Lenovo announced a prototype of its upcoming foldable PC, named ThinkPad X1. The 'world's first foldable PC' is expected to launch next year.

The foldable PC has been in the works for more than three years now. Lenovo says that since it has to uphold the same standards of ruggedness as the staid, formidable ThinkPad line, it's putting the foldable through extra testing cycles (especially the hinge).

The device will have a 13.3-inch 2K OLED display made in partnership with LG, and will be powered by an Intel processor. When it's closed, Lenovo's prototype looks a lot like a mix between a traditional clamshell and a detachable 2-in-1 like a Microsoft Surface. There's a hinge in the middle that holds the two halves together, a kickstand in back, and even a little loop for stashing its Wacom-powered stylus. Laid flat, the flexible seam disappears, and when it's propped open, a keyboard appears on the lower half of the screen.

Since this is just an early prototype, we don't know the full spec sheet, yet. Pricing hasn't been shared as well.
