Lenovo Intends to release bendable smartphone in five years

Lenovo logoLenovo held Tech World at the start of last month, and it released one of the company's biggest innovations, the Lenovo Phab2 Pro, in partnership with Google's Project Tango. The company also showcased the prototype of a bendable smartphone, with representatives now announcing that the handset will debut in the next five years.

Lenovo's Phab2 Pro smartphone with Project Tango technology is surely one of the most important devices to come out of the company's mobile division, but Lenovo has some more aces up its sleeve. The company's bendable phone prototype will be introduced in the next five years, according to CNBC.

Aymar de Lencquesaing, co-president of Lenovo's mobile business group, has stated in an interview with CNBC that the company will release the CPlus bendable phone in the next five years. The device was showcased during Tech World, when it was shown that users could place it on their wrists.

The phone has the capacity to bend backwards in just a matter of seconds. Lenovo announced that the CPlus would be available in two different sizes, and one of the variants will have a 4.26-inch display. The smartphone would run Android OS.

The flexible display was also featured on a phablet/tablet called Folio. The device folded in half depending on the screen size that the user needs for a particular task. It also instantly unfolded and revealed a larger display.

Lenovo isn't the only smartphone manufacturer to release such a smartphone, as Samsung is also working on a handset with a flexible display, namely Galaxy X. The smartphone is part of Samsung's Project Valley initiative, launched a while ago.

Word is that Samsung's device is expected to hit the market in February, during Mobile World Congress 2017, much earlier than Lenovo's bendable smartphone. Moreover, multiple Samsung patent applications have recently surfaced, showing that the company has multiple ideas when it comes to mobile devices with flexible displays.
