Lenovo goes big with foldable, 5G PCs

The ThinkPadX1 and a working 5g computer were two of the biggest headline acts at the Lenovo Tech World 2019.

A day after Motorola announced the all-new foldable Razr phone in Beijing, its parent company Lenovo showcased "the world's first foldable PC" in the Chinese capital on Friday.

The ThinkPadX1 and a working 5g computer - both global firsts - were two of the biggest headline acts at the Lenovo Tech World 2019, the group's annual tech convention.

Moments later he held out the demo ThinkPad X1 in front of a packed audience at the Yanqi Lake International Convention and Exhibition Centre here, claiming it to be the world's first foldable PC

Made for highly mobile, tech-savvy professionals, the X1, Yuanqing said, was not a phone, tablet, or familiar hybrid but in fact a full-fledged laptop with a foldable screen that is set to revolutionise the world of foldables and gadgets.

He also announced the launch of the Razr before unveiling what he described as the world's first working 5g computer with dual route quick charge, frequency adaptive antenna and a dual mode optimization for all frequency bands.

The world has already been witness to how the transition from 3G to 4G LTE has transformed the use smartphones and now it was time to sees the huge growth potential of 5G by enabling smarter, modern computing, Yuanqing said.

The two-day event that's been hosted by the Chinese group annually since 2015 ended in the capital on Friday.
