Bend It, Shape It, Anyway You Want It
Lenovo is not going to stand by and let Samsung be the exclusive provider of bendable technology and showed off a mysterious laptop at the Canalys Channels Forum in Barcelona yesterday. They only gave a brief glimpse at the device on stage, no hands on for attendees. It looks like a 13″ OLED screen when unfolded; like a leather bound notebook when folded closed and may well arrive on the market in the spring of next year.
This is not quite as ambitious as the bendable X1 prototype laptop which they were touting earlier this year at various events, immediately after the initial arrival of the Samsung Fold and will likely benefit from that devices problematic arrival. We don’t know anything about the hardware, nor where the battery will live but The Register did get a few snapshots.
The PC was again folded and packed back into the relatively small handbag, locked tight along with the answers to questions we asked – price and the quality control procedures. More information will arrive nearer the ship date.
