Lenovo’s bendable tablet/phone revealed at Lenovo Tech World 2017

Lenovo is creating products while Microsoft is filing patents and at Lenovo Tech World 2017, the company showed off the Lenovo Folio concept.

Lenovo Folio features

The device sports a flexible touch screen which expands from 5.5 to 7.8 inches. It runs a Qualcomm Xiao Long 800 processor featuring a 1920 x 1440 display and a 4.2mm fold radius and small bezel bonding technology with any angled stop. The larger surface area of the device allows for a larger battery, too.

The device will also feature an e-SIM and run Android 7.0. This may be a turn off for some users who expected something else, but Lenovo usually releases both Windows and Android versions of their devices. If the device eventually becomes a reality, it may support Windows 10 as well.

This is the second year Lenovo has shown off a new Flexible Folio concept, which means that maybe Microsoft should catch up.

Lenovo has offered us glimpses at some of its more experimental technology for quite a while now, including a futuristic smartphone you can wrap around your wrist. In case you don’t have pockets or a bag, the blendable phone can be folded in half. This way, the larger display is turned into a tablet sized gadget for one-handed use.

Lenovo didn’t mention an exact date for the release of these products, but we hope we don’t have to wait much longer. The rest of the industry should make some efforts to keep up with the new technologies as well.
