The Chinese company Lenovo showed a prototype of the world’s first notebook with a flexible display called the ThinkPad X1. About the producer wrote in his blog.
The device runs on Windows 10. It has no physical keyboard — instead, you can use the lower part of the display, or to connect a keyboard via Bluetooth.

In the prototype there are several features which the company plans to show in the commercial version: an infrared camera for biometric systems face recognition Windows Hello and a slot for a SIM card, which confirms support for LTE.
