Lenovo Introduces Foldable ThinkPad, Tablets and Chromebook

Lenovo Introduces Foldable ThinkPad, Tablets and Chromebook. All products will be available from September and onwards.

ThinkPad X1 Fold

We’ll start with the ThinkPad X1 Fold. At first glance, it looks like an oversized tablet, but Lenovo itself speaks of a foldable PC. Anyway. With a 16-inch OLED screen, it is a large device. The company is really talking about a next-gen device.

Powered by Intel vPro, an Intel Evo™ Design with up to 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processors and Intel Iris Xe Graphics, the next-generation ThinkPad X1 Fold delivers superior performance in a foldable form factor. Add to that SSD storage up to 1TB and memory options up to 32GB LPDDR5, and Windows 11 Home or Pro should run smoothly and quickly. The 16.3-inch OLED screen is a touchscreen, but can also be used with a magnetically attached stylus. The screen has 600 nits HDR brightness and supports Dolby Vision.

A keyboard is optionally available, so that you can actually use it as a PC. It also runs on Windows and not on Android.

Lenovo Tab P11 Series

Lenovo introduces two new tablets in the Lenovo Tab P11 series, namely the Lenovo Tab P11 (2ndGen) and the Lenovo Tab P11 Pro (2ndGen). How about that? That series has been around for a long time, hasn’t it? That’s right, we have the first generation also made an extensive review. This time it is the second generation with some upgrades on board.

The Lenovo Tab P11 Pro (2nd Gen) with Android 12 is, according to the company, a real powerhouse and offers an immersive multimedia experience. Featuring an 11.2-inch OLED touchscreen with Dolby Vision HDR, entertainment comes alive with 600 nits of brightness, contrast, colors and detail. It is also HDR10 + support and a 120Hz screen. This model is equipped with a MediaTek Kompanio 1300T octa-core processor and 8 GB of RAM.

Is all that too much of a good thing? Then the regular Lenovo Tab P11 (2ndGen) is a better choice with Android 12, Dolby Atmos, an 11.5-inch LCD screen and 120Hz refresh rate and up to 6 GB of RAM. The processor is a MediaTek G99. Both tablets support accessories such as the Lenovo Folio Case or the Precision Pen 2.

Lenovo IdeaPad 5i Chromebook

Finally, there’s a new Chromebook from Lenovo. It is available in various configurations with an Intel Core i3-1215U or an Intel Pentium 8505. It is a large model with a 16-inch 2.5K LCD screen. An FHD variant is also available. Choose from 4 GB to 8 GB of RAM or 64 GB, 128 GB (eMMC), 256 GB or 512 GB (SSD) storage memory. Stereo speakers and a refresh rate of 120Hz complete the Chromebook. Naturally, the Lenovo IdeaPad 5i Chromebook runs on ChromeOS.
