Lenovo folding tablet

Just over a month ago, Lenovo showed us a flexible computer concept that left us somewhat skeptical. Today, the Chinese company showcased a tablet prototype that looks far less outlandish. Called Folio, the tablet features a 7.8-inch flexible screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1440 and runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC and Android 7.0 Nougat. The Folio folds down the middle to turn into a phone with a 5.5-inch screen on each side. The concept isn’t particularly original, since Korean Samsung and Chinese Oppo have already shown similar prototypes, but Lenovo’s concept seems more evolved and sophisticated. There are no plans to bring it to market yet.
