If you are yet to be attracted by the hype surrounding the upcoming trending feature among device manufacturers: foldable phones-, maybe this video will draw your attention. It shows a Lenovo prototype that appears to be fully functioning, it loads apps and everything.
The phone is pretty tall, which still looks good while you fold it in half. It wonâ€™t fold flat, though, the â€œhingeâ€ reminds us of the Microsoft Surface Book 2.

Did you notice the black spot on the screen where the hinge is? Itâ€™s only on the right side, signifying itâ€™s an issue of the prototype rather a technological limitation. Also, thereâ€™s quite the chin at the bottom. Still, itâ€™s wildly impressive and we expect that the tech will be further improved before a commercial launch.
In 2017, Lenovo showed the Cplus â€“ a phone that bends into a bracelet. It featured a 4.35â€ AMOLED screen and real leather on its back. The company also hinted that this foldable phone may be marketed under the legendary Moto RAZR brand and is also working on a flexible laptop.
