Lenovo shows off ThinkPad X1 Fold without Windows 10x

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold

This wasn’t meant to be the plan.

Lenovo planned to release their foldable tablet with Windows 10, and then to offer a Windows 10 X version when Windows 10x came online.

Microsoft however decided to shift gears and deferred their dual screen Windows 10x support in lieu of a single screen strategy.

Lenovo’s apparently had a plan B and a newly uploaded video by Lenovo now shows the tablet only running Windows 10.

Check it out below.
