At the third annual Lenovo Tech World last week, the Chinese tech giant wowed attendees with the Lenovo Folio, a tablet with a screen that folds in half into a phone.
Before you start getting too excited, you should know that the Folio is a concept device, which means it may not be released as a consumer product anytime soon. Even so, that doesn’t make the device any less impressive.
The tablet has a 7.8-inch screen with 1,920 x 1,440 resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and runs Android 7.0 Nougat. It’s not exactly peak performance in 2017, but that’s not why’d you want this thing — you’d want it for the bendable screen.
When folded, the tablet shrinks down into a 5.5-inch phone that could fit into your pocket. As you can see in the demo videos above and below, the display folds neatly in half with pixels filling all the space where a hinge would normally. The UI automatically adjusts to work as if there are two displays. It’s pretty bananas!
8″ is the perfect tablet size IMHO – a real shame nobody makes them anymore either…
