Opportunities to drive from hype to reality for foldable PC’s

Large screen foldable display PC system is a natural progression from foldable display phones introduced over last few years. Large screen foldable display notebook PCs is becoming an interesting new device category where it combines usages of multiple different form factors into one physical instantiation. These devices present multitude of (and often conflicting) product design and technology challenges. Intel is actively working with Display industry and PC OEMs to solve these challenges and bring such products to realization. Presentation highlights some of these challenges for foldable OLED display power, display lifetime, surface hardness, etc. and how Intel is helping to deliver tools and products that are meaningful to our customers.

Intel’s EVO platform is a specification for premium laptops that provide best of notebook PC experiences.
