You might have already seen Lenovo’s real-life foldable smartphone prototype that bends and flexes, though it will be a while before such malleable designs hit the mainstream market.
The idea was inspired by the growing size of modern-day smartphones, such as 2018’s two biggest candidates, the iPhone XS Max and Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
UPLOND explains, “The design incorporates a flexible screen without a solid frame around it so that it can be unfolded to a highly compact standard phone format that allows the user to check his messages, the time, the weather, other notifications, etc. or, alternatively, it can be folded to a mini-phone that is the perfect format for a pocket.”
It follows an accordian-style foldable design with flexible touchscreen user interface. It can become fully collapsible, thereby transforming from a 60mm by 27mm by 33mm or 60mm by 54mm by 16mm gadget into a completely functional 110mm by 60mm by 8mm smartphone.
