LG Gram Fold Specifications, Features
The LG Gram Fold comes with a massive 17-inch QXGA+ (2,560 x 1,920) foldable OLED touch display. The screen offers a 4:3 aspect ratio when unfolded and supports a 99.5% DCI-P3 Colour Gamut. When folded, the LG Gram Fold converts into a 12-inch tablet with 1,920 x 1,280 resolution and a 3:2 aspect ratio. LG says that when folded, the bottom half of the Gram Fold shows a virtual keyboard but users can also place a Bluetooth keyboard on the bottom half for a conventional typing experience.

LG claims that the hinge of the Gram Fold has passed a folding test where it was folded and opened up to 30,000 times. This figure translates to unfolding the laptop up to 20 times daily for four years.
