Intel Executive Vice President Gregory Bryant previewed Intel’s latest concept device, a foldable OLED tablet that’s been code-named “Horseshoe Bend.” It’s based on Intel’s upcoming Tiger Lake mobile processors, and the design is similar in size to a 12-inch laptop with a folding touchscreen display that can be opened up to more than 17-inches.

Unlike Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Fold, Horseshoe Bend’s OLED display is 4:3 and 17.3 inches diagonal when unfolded, complete with a Surface-style kickstand for use with a wireless keyboard. It’s powered by Intel’s 10nm Tiger Lake architecture set to ship in laptops later this year, and the company expects Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10X to work well with similar devices.
At Intel, our ambition is to help customers make the most of technology inflections like AI, 5G and the intelligent edge so that together we can enrich lives and shape the world for decades to come. As we highlighted today, our drive to infuse intelligence into every aspect of computing can have positive impact at unprecedented scale,” said Intel CEO Bob Swan.
