At Lenovo Accelerate in Las Vegas at the beginning of May, it unveiled a preview and demo of the world’s first foldable PC. Made for highly mobile, tech-savvy professionals who demand advanced tools, the new foldable PC joins the ThinkPad X1 family. It’s not a phone, tablet, or hybrid; this is a fully-fledged laptop with a foldable screen.

This computer makes it possible to have a large comfortable screen on the go, by utilising the space where a keyboard would be, with a virtual keyboard. According to Lenovo, remote work increased 140% from 2008 to 2016, with more employees taking time-sensitive, media-intensive projects with them everywhere. In the past, a 13.3-inch screen on a laptop demanded that the device itself is 13.3 inches —not so with this single OLED 2K display made in collaboration with LG display. This reduced the size of the computer by half.

Lenovo said it will disclose full product details and availability in 2020.

The Sony Xperia 5, announced in September 2019, is the latest compact flagship, intended as a more affordable, pocket-friendly alternative to the full-sized Xperia 1. Key features on the Xperia 5 include a 6.1-inch OLED display, as well as the high-end Snapdragon 855 chipset with 128GB of internal storage and 6GB RAM. Storage is expandable up to 1TB via micro SD.

The main camera boasts the same triple sensor and lens setup as on the Xperia 1. All three sensors offer 12MP resolution, with a large 1/2.55-inch sensor for the main camera, and a smaller 1/3.4-inch sensor for each of the ultra-wide and telephoto modules. The main sensor is coupled to a 26mm-equivalent f/1.6 aperture lens; there’s also a 16mm-equivalent f/2.4-aperture ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 52mm-equivalent f/2.4-aperture lens offering x2 optical zoom shots.
