Lenovo officially launched the much-awaited Motorola Razr amidst much fanfare at an event in Los Angeles, US yesterday. The company launched the device this morning at the Tech World 2019 in China. At the event, the Chinese firm also showcased the world’s first foldable PC with a flexible screen apart from the Motorola Razr foldable phone. It is the very same device that was revealed as ThinkPad X1 series device earlier this year.
The images of the event shows that the display of the Motorola Razr has some creases at the folding area. It’s surprising since various tech publications have praised its screen for no visible creases. During the press conference at the event, Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing answered queries related to Motorola Razr, he said that Lenovo’s product is a compact device like a mobile phone. It doesn’t transform into a tablet like other foldables. Instead, it folds in half making it more compact.
Coming to Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 series notebook with foldable screen, it is equipped with a 13.3-inch folding display manufactured by LG. Not much is known about the device apart from its weight, which is around 900 grams, and the 2K display. It will take a while for the laptop to reach showrooms, as Lenovo needs to iron out a few creases to get the device ready for production.
BOE Vice-President has confirmed supplying OLED panels for the world’s first foldable PC and Motorola Razr.
