Leak: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano with a 16:10 screen & Intel Tiger Lake weighs less than 1 kg
It is no secret that Lenovo plans to expand it's premium ThinkPad X1 laptop lineup. We have several leaks to thank for that. But until now, we did not know that much what exactly those new products would be, as only the names of the ThinkPad X1 Titanium and ThinkPad X1 Nano were leaked.
This has changed now, as we have a new leak, curtesy to the Twitter account "WalkingCat" that leaked other Lenovo products before as well. The leak includes a slide, which includes a picture of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano and the most important specifications of the new ThinkPad laptop.
Based on the picture, the ThinkPad X1 Nano looks like the next evolution of the well-known ThinkPad X1 Carbon. The overall design cues like the black Carbon-fiber chassis are the same, but the new model is even smaller and lighter, with a weight of less than 1 kg. To achieve this, Lenovo uses a slightly smaller 48 Wh battery and also slashes most ports that are present on the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. The ThinkPad X1 Nano just has two USB C ports, like the current Dell XPS 13. The X1 Nano will however support Thunderbolt 4, as the first ThinkPad ever.
This is not the only similarity with the Dell XPS: The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano is also the first ThinkPad laptop since 2010 with a screen in the 16:10 aspect ratio. The taller screen, which has a 2K-resolution and a brightness of 450 cd/m², eliminates most of the bottom bezel. Fittingly, the screen-to-body-ratio of 85 % is higher than any other current ThinkPad laptop, though not as high as the Dell XPS 13. The screen is also slightly smaller than Dell's (13 inch instead of 13.4 inch).
Unlike the current ThinkPads, which still feature the 14 nm CPUs Comet-Lake, the X1 Nano adopts 10 nm CPUs in the form of Intel Tiger-Lake, which will be accompanied by 16 GB LPDDR4X memory. This is not the only "first" for a ThinkPad, as the X1 Nano will also be the first ThinkPad laptop to feature 5G.
Due to the fact that Lenovo uses Intel Tiger-Lake, we are not expecting to see the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano until the fourth quarter of 2020.
