Lenovo has finally unveiled its new flagship. The new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano comes to market.
The ThinkPad X1 Nano is very similar in design to the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8. Both models have the same carbon fiber cover. The big difference is the size of the display and the aspect ratio. The Nano comes out with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 13-inch display, while the X1 Carbon has a 14-inch LCD with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The ratio gives the ThinkPad Nano the same display length as the Carbon, but in a smaller case. With the ThinkPad X1 Nano Gen 1, Lenovo complements its premium ThinkPad X1 series with a slightly smaller model.
The ThinkPad X1 Nano is a lightweight. It weighs just 962 grams. This makes it considerably lighter than the carbon and the competitor model, the Dell XPS 13, with 1.2 kg. Due to the low weight, a few compromises had to be made in the Features. For example, savings had to be made on the connections. The Nano has two Thunderbolt 4 connections and a connection for headphones. Also the keyboard and battery performance are a bit behind in contrast to the carbon. According to the manufacturer Lenovo, the battery of the Nano should last up to 17 hours, which is quite remarkable. The Nano also has four Dolby Atmos speakers on board with 4x 360-degree.
As the first ThinkPad X1, the Nano is powered by the Intel Tiger-Lake. It is not yet clear which version, UP3 or UP4, will be used. New in the X1 Nano is also the memory: 5G and LPDDR4X (up to 16 GB). The screen comes in a 2K resolution with 2.160 x 1.350 and a brightness value of 450 cd/m². With the ThinkPad you can choose between the touch and the non-touch version. And you can choose between Windows 10 Pro or Ubuntu Linux.
Availability and price
The new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano is scheduled for release in Germany later this year. However, it is not yet known at what price the laptop will be available.
