At its tech world conference, Lenovo wowed people with the revealed of host of products including the new Moto Z and Moto Z Force alongside the first consumer ready Project Tango handset, the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. The Chinese company also showed off some new innovations, it is currently working on including a new flexible smartphone that can wrap around the wrist, and a tablet which can be folded in half.
The CPlus, a new conceptual smartphone with a totally flexible display, that can be worn as a band on a user’s wrist. Lenovo CPlus concepts are all about creating 100 per cent flexible devices. Lenovo is not the only company that’s tinkering with the idea of flexible displays and phones. Recently a report by Bloomberg said, Samsung will also launch its bendable smartphone with a flexible display at the Mobile World Congress in 2017 in Barcelona. The report in Bloomberg notes, Samsung will launch two new smartphones with bendable OLED displays.
The CPlus is even more flexible. Its multiple hinges allow it to curl up on itself through almost 360°, creating a bracelet you can just wear on your wrist. As you do, the screen’s app layout transitions into three sections. The top (where the clock face would be on wrist watch) shows time, weather, and notifications, the middle section has media player controls, and the bottom displays is appeared to be an app launcher
The CPlus, which is not in production, sports a 4.26-inch flexible display, runs the Android OS and will come in a choice of 12 different colors.
