LG Gram Fold: A Revolutionary Foldable Laptop
LG has recently unveiled its first foldable laptop, the LG Gram Fold, which is currently limited to South Korea. This new device features a unique hinge system that allows it to transform from a compact 12-inch tablet into a large 17-inch touch display. Powered by a 13th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, the LG Gram Fold offers a stunning 17-inch OLED screen with a native resolution of 2560×1920 pixels and a 4:3 aspect ratio. It also boasts DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification and covers 99.5% of the DCI-P3 color gamut.
One of the standout features of the LG Gram Fold is its hinge system, which is rated to last for 30,000 folds. This durability is slightly less than what Samsung claims for its foldable devices but still translates to 20 folds per day for a period of four years. Despite its advanced hardware, the LG Gram Fold weighs just 1.25 kilograms, slightly heavier than other LG Gram laptops.
The LG Gram Fold is powered by the 13th Gen Intel Core i5-1335U processor with embedded Iris Xe graphics, 16 GB of RAM, and 512 GB of internal storage. It is fueled by a 72 Whr battery with support for 65W fast charging via the Thunderbolt 4 capable USB-C port. The device also features a tri-speaker setup, although it lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack.
With a price tag of 4.99 million won (approximately $3,729 or Rs 310,262), the LG Gram Fold is more expensive than similarly specced laptops. However, as part of the launch offer, it will be available for just 3.99 million won (approximately $2,982 or Rs 248,109), which is in line with other foldable laptops from the competition.
Overall, the LG Gram Fold is a revolutionary device that combines the portability of a tablet with the functionality of a laptop. Its innovative hinge system and powerful specifications make it a compelling option for tech enthusiasts looking for a versatile computing experience.
