Going completely portless seems to be a long-term goal for many tech companies but the Craob X is reportedly bringing that dream to reality. First spotted by mylaptopguide, the laptop claims to be the world’s first portless Ultrabook.
Because of its portless design, Craob says that it is only 7mm thick and weights just 1.9 pounds (0.86kg) — for reference, the iPhone 13’s thickness is 7.65mm while the 2018 Acer Swift 7 currently holds the record for thinnest laptop at just 8.98mm. The company didn’t give out any details on the battery life, thought it doesn’t seem like it could fit much in such a tightly-packed chassis.
Speaking of the battery, the Craob X charges via a magnetic wireless charger that sticks on the back of the display, though it failed to disclose the charging speed. The small charger also doubles as a port hub, which includes USB-A, USB-C, Thunderbolt, a headphone jack, and an SD card slot.
The ridiculously thin laptop sports a 13.3-inch 4K display with extremely thin bezels and rounded corners. It also has a tiny punch hole camera to accommodate the near bezel-less design, though it didn’t give out the webcam’s resolution.
Under the hood, it’s powered by a 12th Gen Intel Core i7-1280P processor with Intel Iris Xe graphics. It can also be configured with up to 32GB of DDR5 RAM, 2TB of SSD storage, and supports WiFi 6E.
Practically nothing is known about the company behind it, but the Craob X is listed as “coming soon” on their website. As interesting as it may be, this isn’t the first attempt at a portless commercial device, as Chinese phone manufacturer Meizu previously tried to launch the Meizu Zero, only to later reveal that it was a marketing stunt.
With no information on pricing or availability, we’ll just have to wait and see if this portless wonder will actually come to market or be just another dud concept.
