This is great wonder how many we will be able to get on our carriers? (Get it...joke...)

Sort of... Believe they're looking at a raked tip (flat, curved aft) initially.

Is it going to have a winglet?

The foldable wing tip is the winglet.

But only on the ground for maneuvering. It appears B has done away with winglets altogether for cruise.

Highflyer, It appears that the "X" wingtip design will follow the same new wingtip design as the 787 which is a gently curved up wing tip, not the very angular design of earlier wingtip applications.

Thanks, I saw another view on the raked wingtip in the down position and it makes sense. cheers.

Started to post this the other day but didn't, GA seems to be following the same path in some regards because the very angular, tall winglets require a beef up of outer wing panels and structure due to the lateral loads and increased apparent span. GLF 500, 600, 650 seem to be adopting a similar planform. At any rate winglet design seems to follow the "soup de jour" to me these days. cheers.
