Forget foldable phones – Intel is already looking ahead to foldable PCs.
The chipmaker unveiled its new concept device, nicknamed “Horseshoe Bend,” at CES 2020. About the size of a 12-inch laptop, the device is seemingly just like any other clamshell laptop. But there’s a twist: the inside is almost entirely made up of a foldable OLED display.
The design is not necessarily one that will come to market anytime soon – instead, it’s intended to show off what Intel’s upcoming “Tiger Lake” processors can do, and will hopefully spur innovation from PC-makers.
Regardless, it’s one of the coolest laptop concepts to come out of CES so far. Here’s a closer look at what it’s like:
The device has a single, 17.3-inch OLED display. For comparison, the Galaxy Fold’s display is 7.3-inches — the Horseshoe Bend is massive.
Seriously — check out how wild this thing looks in action:
There are a few ways to use the device. You can either hold it like a book …
Sit it upright like a regular laptop …
… or prop it on its side using the kickstand. It also has a detachable keyboard so you can use it more like a desktop PC.
While we won’t see Horseshoe Bend on store shelves anytime soon, hopefully we’ll get a device like it in the near future.
