When Intel starts making a concept folding display laptop, you know the arrival of folding screen large device is imminent. Even though Intel made a hardware, code name Horseshoe Bend, it does not mean it will actually make the hardware itself. It will likely sell the hardware design to a laptop maker.

In any case, Horseshoe Bend is real. It is a 2-in-1 concept device with a foldable OLED display that seamlessly transforms from a 17.3-inch tablet to a 12-inch laptop. Intel declared that it is a full-fledged PC with full-array of ports and connectivity, but on the flip side, this is not your usual laptop running off Intel Core processors.

Instead, it will run on Intel’s upcoming system-on-chip (SoC) code name “Tiger Lake” mobile processors. Beyond that, little is know about what makes this little ticks. Nobody knows how much RAM it has, how much storage there is et cetera.

All we know now is, it is a cool device and it will be a premium device. We also know that it can be use with a companion keyboard (that magnetically attaches to it), turning it into a regular laptop and it can also function as an all-in-one, lay-flat, canvas or as a book. Oh, the keyboard that we mentioned? It can seamlessly integrated into the device when folded for ease of lugging it around.
