At CES 2021, Lenovo launched a new detachable ThinkPad device X12 Detachable. Lenovo claims that this is the first detachable device released in several years. Lenovo said that the product was launched due to customer demand for detachable devices.
ThinkPad X12 Detachable is equipped with Intel’s 11th generation UP4 chipset, 12.4-inch FHD display, Wi-Fi 6, detachable folio keyboard, and uses the same magnetic pen as the X1 Titanium Yoga.
The release of the ThinkPad X12 detachable product at CES 2021 was released at the same time as the other Lenovo ThinkPad products, including the latest version of the ThinkPad X1
It also has a new single-pole hinge system and uses two fans instead of one fan. Lenovo claims that it reduces fan noise while improving the ventilation and heat dissipation capabilities of the notebook.
Lenovo also released the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga, which is touted as the company’s flagship convertible laptop this year and the thinnest convertible laptop in the company’s history.
The ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga has a thickness of 11.5mm, a weight of 1.15kg, and a 13.5-inch QHD display. It will be equipped with Intel’s 11th generation Core chip, Iris Xe integrated graphics, two Thunderbolt 4.0 ports, four microphones and a magnetic pen. Lenovo said its main attraction is the 360-degree flexible screen.
All ThinkPad models this year will have 5G options. The 5G of these laptops will be lower than 6GhZ 5G and cannot reach millimeter wave speeds.
Lenovo also said that this year’s ThinkPad models all feature human body recognition-the ability to log in without having to touch the laptop through Windows Hello-and the blue light level has been improved compared to previous models.
The Chinese company also released ThinkReality A3, which is a new pair of smart glasses. The goal of the glasses is to “transform work on all levels” through virtual display and 3D visualization.
Lenovo veterans said: “These are the most advanced and versatile corporate smart glasses on the market. They are part of the overall strategy of using comprehensive digital solutions to help achieve smart transformation. Companies always tell us that they are doing this. And work hard,” said technical expert Kevin Baker.
“In this new normal of distributed labor and mixed work models, companies are telling us that they are looking for new technologies and they want to collaborate more intelligently.”
The glasses will be divided into two models: PC version and industrial version. The former can be bound with a PC, while the latter has the ability to bind with Motorola’s flagship smartphone. Lenovo said that both allow users to wear prescription lenses when using ThinkReality A3.
When announcing the product, Lenovo said it focused on flexibility when developing the glasses to make them “immersive rather than isolated.” According to Lenovo, the industrial version of the glasses is allowed to work in factory floors, laboratories, and retail and reception spaces.
Last year, Lenovo used CES 2020 to launch the ThinkPad X1 Fold, which is a foldable PC. After 4 years of development and 6 designs, it was launched at the end of last year.
