Another challenge that Lenovo had to go through was while putting the battery inside the foldable laptop. Splitting the battery is not an option as it would make the laptop heavy. And this is why the prototype laptop has the battery on a single side.
Lenovo claims that the laptop will have a battery life that will last all day. It is currently unsure whether Lenovo will only use Windows OS or Intel processors. Nevertheless, the laptop features two dedicated USB Type-C ports along with stereo speakers and IR camera. While unveiling the prototype device, Lenovo didn’t reveal the price of the laptop.
But there is one thing for certain; this laptop is going to change how people look at conventional laptops.
