At the largest European consumer electronics show, IFA, Lenovo has shown off their latest releases for 2022, including new monitors, tablets, Chromebooks, smart glasses and a new generation of their X1 Fold Thinkpad.

Thinkpad X1 Fold

Lenovo’s foldable laptop, the Thinkpad X1 Fold has been updated with a focus on Performance and Productivity. 

The Thinkpad X1 Fold has been updated for 2022 with all new internals, including a 12th Gen Intel U-Series processor – i5 and i7 available – and up to 32GB of LPDDR5 RAM with up to 1TB PCIe Gen 4 SSD. Lenovo says the next-gen X1 Fold includes all-day battery life, as well as Wifi 6E

The form-factor has changed slightly from the initial launch of the Thinkpad X1 Fold , with a new hinge shutting flat which makes the profile slimmer. The unit has the footprint of a 12” laptop when closed, which makes it easy to keep in your bag. 

The Thinkpad X1 Fold uses an on-screen keyboard in laptop mode, with the physical keyboard now an optional extra. The keyboard can also no longer be stored inside the display when closed thanks to the new hinge design. Instead you can stack the X1 Fold on top for easy carrying. You can still place the full-sized, backlit keyboard – which features a trackpoint and trackpad and fingerprint reader – on the lower deck when in laptop mode to use it like a 12” laptop.

You can alternatively make use of the full 16.3” OLED panel when opened up, magnetically attaching the keyboard to the base. There’s also a stand to help prop up the display which can also be stacked with the keyboard and X1 Fold when closed. 

The display is impressive with 8mm bezels, which also allow for a Windows Hello compatible 5MP IR WebCam to be included for video-conferencing.

Lenovo has included Dolby Atmos certified speakers on the Thinkpad X1 Fold, as well as Dolby Vision on the display. You also get On-Cell Touch with Pen support. 

Lenovo hasn’t announced pricing for the Thinkpad X1 Fold as yet, but we’ll update when it’s available.

Lenovo Glasses T1

From foldable laptops, to the new Lenovo Glasses T1 wearable private display, these new glasses offer a private virtual display when connected to smartphones and laptops for extreme privacy – or just comfort while watching a movie, playing games or surfing the web.

The Lenovo Glasses T1 connect to your device and offer the option to setup a single, or multiple monitors to increase your workspace virtually. You canb connect via USB-C to any Windows, Android, iOS or Mac OS device for much larger Augmented Reality Dsiplays. 

Spec wise, the Glasses T1 include a MicroOLED display with 1920 X 1080 per eye at 60Hz. The displays are TUV certified to be both low blue-light and flicker reduced for more comfort.

There are high-fidelity speakers included on the glasses, and feature adjustable arms and nose pieces so you can wear them comfortably for longer – and wear your prescription lenses while wearing them.

There’s no release dates or pricing for the Lenovo Glasses T1, but they do look impressive.

ThinkBook 16P Gen 3

For content creators and power users, the ThinkBook 16P unleashes the power of AMD and NVIDIA technology with the AMD Ryzen 9 6000 H series processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 discrete graphics onboard with Windows 11 running the show.

The laptop can be configured with up to AMD Ryzen 9 H Series processors and comes with up to 32GB of DDR5 RAM with up to 2TB of PCIe Gen 4 SSD storage. A 71 Whr battery will offer all-day battery life. 

The ThinkBook 16P includes a large 16-inch 2.5K IPS display which includes TUV certification for low blue light and eyesafe to maximise comfort. The panel can come in either a 60Hz 400nits brightness display or a 165Hz 500 nits brightness display with HDR400 support for optimal performance – though Lenovo Australia hasn’t shared which will arrive here.

The laptop includes a full-sized keyboard with numeric keypad and a FullHD RGB camera, although there’s also going to be an option for an IR model which is Windows Hello compatible – but there’s also a fingerprint sensor enabled power key for alternate biometric authentication.

The Thinkbook 16p is available now in Australia from Lenovo for $5,059 AUD – or $5,539 NZD in New Zealand.

Chromebook and Android tablets

Lenovo is also launching a new Chromebook at IFA, as well as new Tab P11 and Tab P11 Pro Android tablets. 

Lenovo Ideapad 5i 

The new Lenovo Ideapad 5i Chromebook offers a generous 16” FHD or 2.5K resolution display at 16:10 aspect ratio, with both supporting up to 120Hz refresh. This is the first 16” display Chromebook for Lenovo and offers a larger work area for students, office workers or just for home use – there’s even a 180-degree hinge to lay it flat if required.

The Chromebook includes options for either an Intel Core i3 or Pentium 8505 processor, as well as either 4GB or 8GB of DDR4 RAM. There’s also options for either 256GB or 512GB on-board storage with eMMC storage for expansion.

The Ideapad 5i includes Wifi 6E support, as well as Bluetooth 5.0 and comes with a battery lasting up to 12 Hours. This is a Chromebook, so you will get access to the Google Play Store with a range of Android apps, as well as a the Google Assistant and Android Studio for developers.

Lenovo Tab P11 and P11 Pro

For those after a new tablet, the P11 and P11 Pro offer a new generation of Android tablet, with generously sized displays and octa-core processors. 

The P11 includes an 11.5” 2K resolution display, while the P11 Pro includes a 2.5K resolution display with Dolby Vision and HDR 10+ support. The tablets also include quad speakers with Dolby Atmos support and dual microphones. 

Lenovo has used the Mediatek Helio G99 processor on the P11, while the P11 Pro gets a MediaTek Kompanio 1300T processor. Both tablets include a variety of memory and storage configurations to choose from – though Lenovo will confirm which options will land in Australia down the track.

 The Lenovo Tab P11 Pro will also support Wifi 6E for those looking for a slightly faster edge on their network. 

The tablets will offer a good battery life, with a 7,700mAh battery in the P11, while the P11 Pro will jump up to an 8,000mAh battery. 

The Lenovo Tab P11 will be arriving in Australia in October 2022 for $549 ($699 for our New Zealand friends) – but no word on the P11 Pro as yet.

Lenovo Monitors

Lenovo is also announcing a new range of monitors at IFA, with a high-end Y32p-30 gaming monitor, as well as T34W and T32P monitors for extending your display, and the S25e-30 budget offering.


The Y32p-30 is a high-end 31.5” gaming monitor with 4K resolution and offering HDR400 for excellent picture quality and clarity. The display includes a 144Hz refresh rate, 0.5ms response times and supports AMD Freesync. 

The monitor is designed to offer the Best gaming experience and includes a nrand new ambient light sensor to adjust automatically. Lenovo has also added ambient lighting to the bottom of the display for a great gamer feel which can be controlled by their Artery Software. 

The monitor is great for PC gaming, but also supports HDMI 2.1 so you can connect to the latest generation consoles XSX/PS5 and also offers PIP and PBP as well as KVM. There’s also built-in speakers.

T34W and T32P

For those not in need of a high-end gaming monitor, but do need more screen real-estate to do more work, the T34W (curved) and T32P (flat)  are high-end monitors offering the ability to power your laptop and extend your display – or your network. 

The monitors can be connected with a single USB-C cable, and will connect into your VOIP modular stack offering camera and soundbar, for an all-in-one office display.

The new generation monitors include a redesigned stand for cable management as well as a phone stand. There’s no buttons on the front for a clean look, with all inputs and settings accessible via a joystick on the back.


Finally, for those looking for an office workhorse, the S25e-30 targets the small to mid-sized businesses or home office user with a 24.5” FHD resolution display with 75Hz refresh rate and support for 99% of the sRGB colour gamut.

The display can be powered by VGA or HDMI 1.4 interface and includes a 3.5mm audio out ports to quickly connect to external devices – letting you add multiple screens for improved productivity.

Only the Legion Y32P-32 Gaming Monitor has been given an Australian launch date and price – set to arrive in January 2023 for $1,899. The T34W (curved) and T32P (flat)  and the S25e-30 haven’t been given launch dates or prices at this stage.
