If Asus does bring a foldable laptop at the show, this could mark as the onset of a completely new category. However, Asus isn’t going to be the first in this category as Lenovo introduced the first foldable screen laptop dubbed ThinkPad X1 Fold back in 2020. Dell also introduced its concept foldable PC named Ori the same year, though only Lenovo’s make it to the store shelves. But seeing one more company joining the bandwagon simply suggests a new battle could start soon. Up until now, we have seen some foldable smartphones but looks like the foldable display tech has now successfully traversed into PCs as well to show its prowess. Interestingly, Asus is making good use of the biggest consumer electronics trade show platform to unveil what it has achieved. We can’t deem possible use of cases of a foldable laptop for now, but seeing the growing interest of companies inclining towards the always-on connected laptops, it is fair to surmise what Asus could bring to the table.
The year 2022 is about to begin, and as we all know, there are a slew of new product launches planned. This long line is going to become much longer, as CES 2022, which kicks out at the beginning of the year, will also feature a slew of new consumer electronics devices. Asus is expected to release a foldable laptop on January 5 as part of these launches. This appears to be the case based on a teaser that the corporation recently released on Twitter. A link in the caption also leads to a separate page with a silhouette of a probable foldable item, which we believe is a foldable laptop. But there’s nothing to take from this because the details are being kept under wraps until the launch, which isn’t far away.
Always-Connected PCs (AC-PCs) use cellular data SIM cards and offer internet access no matter where you are. They combine the efficiency of a smartphone’s processor in the body of a laptop computer. We suspect that the laptops with foldable screens will make the always-connected concept handier for the consumers. Today’s laptops are becoming ultraportable than ever and a foldable concept could make them more mobile and thus a natural choice for students and even enterprises.
We expect Asus to throw more light on the subject at the exhibition, which is scheduled to commence on January 5. It is worth mentioning that the launch of the supposed foldable laptop will happen a day after the company refreshes its gaming laptop series at the CES stage.
