It seems that we are very close to seeing a bendable smartphone becoming a reality now. If the teaser shared by Lenovo on the Chinese social media site Weibo, is to be trusted, the flexible phone may be a launch soon.

Lenovo’s recent post showing off this bendable device comes with a caption “We are just so terribly good. It’s time to show off. We’ll see you in October.” Hints that this device may be launched in October and if this is true at all than Lenovo may beat the likes of Samsung, Huawei, and others which are trying to be the first one to do so.

It’s worth noting that Lenovo is scheduled to launch a bezel-less Z5 Pro on October 11th and has also teased about a smartphone with quad camera setup which is also slated to launch soon.

Foldable smartphones are pretty soon going to be a thing. Every now and then we get some brand showcasing their achievements with a flexible display or foldable gadgets. Samsung is hell-bent to be world’s first brand to launch a foldable device and in all probability, the South Korean company may showcase one around the end of the year.

Huawei’s 5G enabled foldable device is slated to launch in 2019 while, LG, ZTE, Motorola, OPPO and even Xiaomi are on different stages of developing a flexible device. Even display and battery manufacturers like BOE, JDI, and Panasonic are gearing up for the challenge.

Another brand that does not want to be left behind in this race is Lenovo. It is said to be working on a device called Lenovo CPlus sporting a 4.35-inches Super AMOLED display and can be worn around the wrist as a wearable and can be used as a smartphone as well.


A demo video posted on Twitter shows the prototype being bent over in sort of a wearable device with the display still being operational. While the device folds at the hinges present on the body limiting the usage to a couple of forms, wearable or a candy bar smartphone only. We can also see a black spot on the display at the corner, where the device bends hinting that the technology is far from perfect however it is still exciting to see how multifunctional the future devices could be.

There's certainly a race to be the first in the world when it comes to offering a foldable phone or a 5G-supported phone. The former feature is being now tested in a lot of phones, like Samsung.
