BEIJING -- Folding-screen personal computers and smartphones got time in the sun at Lenovo Group's annual Tech World event that ended here Friday.

The new addition to the ThinkPad X1 family is the world's first foldable PC, the Chinese computer maker boasts. It opens into a tablet and closes up notebook-style by virtue of a bendable 13.3-inch display that uses organic light-emitting diodes. The device is expected to go on sale in late 2020, but its price has not been announced.
