Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold (2022) Hands-On - MAJOR Upgrades
Source: Pocketnow English
So, what if you could have a 16-inch touch display, that was also a computer you could pack up and carry, but that could also convert to a 12-inch Laptop, but that was durable enough to gain MIL-SPEC certification? I know.. Let me explain. This is the 2022 Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, and regardless of what you thought of its earlier predecessor from two years ago, this is NOT that computer. I mean, if you remember Michael Fisher did all he could to love it but couldn't, but it was mainly because at the time it was pretty experimental. This year's X1 Fold is a completely different animal, with a couple of use cases that make all the logical sense in the world. Reporting from both New York City and Berlin and with Adam Lein on Camera, I'm Jaime Rivera with Pocketnow. Let's dive in to our hands-on.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold (2022) initial review: Hands on with the bendy, flexible laptop
Source: Pocket Lint English
There's no denying the appeal of the X1 Fold. It's an interesting take on utilising folding, flexible display panels. There aren't many devices like it out there yet, and it's one of the neatest implementations we've seen yet. However, there's no denying that with a price tag comfortably over the $2000 mark in the US (with prices starting from $2499). It's a new technology and so - of course - comes with a big price tag. But it's a lot of money to ask for a technology which still feels very much like it's in its experimental phase.

Almost two years after making the first laptop with a flexible display, Lenovo has returned with the 2022 ThinkPad X1 Fold which sports a brand new design and a much larger 16.3-inch display.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022 hands-on: A better foldable-screen laptop
Source: Tom's Guide English
The new ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022 delivers a much bigger 16.3-inch display, a more powerful 12th gen processor, comfier keyboard and slimmer bezels, improving on the original X1 Fold in almost every way. But $2,499 is still a lot to spend on a foldable screen laptop, and the accessories cost extra.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Gen 2 – 16-inch foldable laptop, 2022 model
Source: Ultrabook Review English
I only got to spend little time with the X1 Fold, but it further cemented my belief that I’ll get myself a foldable laptop in due time. While the implementation differs from what Asus did with their ZenBook Fold, as this X1 Fold is a little smaller and packs in more compactly, the overall experience is pretty much the same: a portable format for traveling, with the ability to open up into a practical large-screen device on your desk. Sure, the performance isn’t much compared to other modern platforms, but for casual use and light multitasking, this will do fine. And that’s pretty much what I need in a portable device when traveling for work or vacation, as I do the heavy lifting on my PC. Of course, the X1 Fold is still expensive at this point, even if more affordable than the ZenBook Fold, so not something that most will be able to justify. I can’t really justify it either, yet, but give it a year or two for the technology to mature and pricing to drop towards the 2K mark or maybe under (especially with the sales that Lenovo are running time and again), and I’m fairly convinced one of these foldables are going to finally retire my old XPS 13. Anyway, that’s about it for now, but stay tuned as we get our hands of a finalized model of this Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold 2nd gen for a proper review later in the year.

Hands on: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Gen 2 review
Source: Techradar English
Competition is finally heating up in the foldable laptop space, with Asus announcing its new Zenbook 17 Fold OLED at the same time. Both Asus and Lenovo itself seem to have taken lessons from the first ThinkPad X1 Fold’s failures, with bigger screens, sturdier designs, and more powerful hardware. Comparisons are inevitable, but it’ll be impossible to judge which foldable laptop is superior until we can properly test them both. For now, we’ll simply say that the ThinkPad X1 Fold Gen 2 was a joy to use, and we’re a tiny bit sad that we weren’t able to perform a whirlwind heist to nab one from the Lenovo event venue.
