At the virtual event known as World 22, many rollable screen technology gadgets were displayed in addition to the usual rollable screen cellphones that have become quite common at tech fairs, visitors were intrigued to see the same screen-expanding technology applied to a laptop. In the video attached below, Luca Rossi, president of Lenovo’s Intelligent Devices Group, highlights an undisclosed ThinkPad notebook with a vertically expanding screen.
Lenovo’s idea rollable laptop has no known technical specifications, not even a name, but Rossi called the possibilities it offers “compelling.” The new style of clamshell laptop, according to him, would “bring multitasking, browsing, and mobility applications to another level.” The rollable screen folds out to make the display much taller. According to the business, this technology should make it simpler to multitask on a laptop while maintaining the portability of the actual computer.
If you’re curious in the technical specifications of the Lenovo ThinkPad with rollable screen, you’ll note that the completely unfolded demonstration model remarkably resembles the ThinkPad X1 Fold 2022, which was unveiled at the beginning of September. Even though the screen stretches utilising a totally different method, the final appearance of the fully expanded and fully opened states is nearly identical. The second-generation ThinkPad X1 fold included a 16.3-inch diagonal, 2024 x 2460-pixel display that was vertically tall. Despite having a large display, the laptop’s folded size was comparable to a 12-inch tablet.
It is still unknown whether Lenovo would ever make the two gadgets into actual goods because the firm claims they are only proofs of concept. The primary problems will be keeping the gadgets inexpensive and avoiding the rollable screen technology from deteriorating over time due to heavy use.
Samsung unveiled a prototype tablet with a rollable screen last month that can increase the display’s size from 13 to 17 inches. The PC industry should consider utilising rollable displays in additional goods, Intel added, although the first such items should have high price tags. This shows that the industry is taking a general shift to adding rollable innovations into their product lineup.
