Specifically, the prototype on display of Intel will be called Horseshoe Bend with 17.3 inch screen and 4: 3 aspect ratio. When folded, the device promises to give users the most laptop-like experience.
In addition, this prototype also comes with a separate keyboard and stand for easy use in the ‘no fold’ state. In the folded state, the device also gives users the same user experience as regular laptops, with the virtual keyboard screen on the bottom.
In addition, the feeling of using two different screen parts is also extremely interesting, especially when scrolling the web, users will have the experience of surfing on an ‘infinity’ part of the screen.
It is known that Horseshoe Bend owns the power from the Tiger Lake processor built on Intel’s new 10nm process. The device is also protected by a 7mm thick frame with 9DP TDP and does not have any cooling system. In addition, this model also runs on regular Windows 10 operating systems. However, in the future, Intel hopes Microsoft can soon launch Windows 10X to fit the foldable laptop model.
Compared to Lenovo’s X1 Fold, the Horseshoe Bend is clearly not suitable for a device ready to be commercialized. However, this device has a thinner bezel and offers a more complete experience. However, at the event, Intel has not yet allowed users to fully fold the prototype, so we still can not evaluate too much about the machine.
