Hands on: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Gen 2 review

When we assessed the first generation Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, we were excited about the prospect but felt let down by the execution. Screen folding technology was still in its infancy – some argue it still is – and the X1 Fold Gen 1 was too small and not powerful enough to warrant a recommendation.

If those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it, we want to declare Lenovo the opposite of doomed. Revealed at IFA 2022, the ThinkPad X1 Fold Gen 2 is more than just an improvement over the original; it feels like a brand new product. Gone is the small screen and keyboard of the Gen 1 model, replaced by a vibrant 16.3-inch foldable OLED display and a larger Bluetooth keyboard that feels much better.
