Lenovo Shows off Bendable Smartphones, Tablets

Instead of putting your smartphone away in your pocket, Lenovo wants you to bend your phone around your wrist.

YouTube personality Meghan McCarthy showed off the flexible smartphone during during Lenovo’s Tech World conference Thursday, taking a pretty standard-looking smartphone and bending it around her wrist like a slap bracelet.

She then proceeded to take a tablet and bend it right in half to show how a tablet could also be comfortably used to take a phone call with bendable technology.

Lenovo SVP and CTO Peter Hortensius told the audience that the technology not only has a bendable screen, but also bendable hardware components like motherboards and batteries.
Lenovo did not announce any names or potential release dates for its new flexible electronics, although Hortensius mentioned that McCarthy should be careful with them because “they cost a little bit more than your average phone or tablet right now.”

More information about Lenovo’s flexible smartphone and tablet may come out later during the conference.

Lenovo’s announcement comes just a couple days after Samsung showed off and announced its own bendable smartphones, which will likely be available in early 2017
