Wearable phone is (almost) a reality

Your dress is great but it has no pockets. Where are you going to put your phone? Well maybe you can wear it on your wrist if you get the Cplus smartphone Lenovo introduced at its Tech World 2016.

A smartphone like no others

This smartphone has a 4.35-inch touchscreen and runs Android like most other smartphones. Its display, however, is flexible.

Flexible screen

That allows you to curl it up into a bracelet and wear it on your wrist. According to Lenovo, the screen supports outward bending at r<15 grade.

Works like a smartwatch, too.

When curled up, it works like a smartwatch. And it supposedly fits on your wrist comfortably.

Strong grip

Lenovo says the screen features innovative bonding technology that allows for a strong grip when curled up; that means you can use it during a workout without worrying about dropping it.

Phone to Tablet

This is the Folio concept of Phone to Tablet design. The device can work as either a 7.8-inch tablet or a 5.5-inch smartphone when folded up.

Show off your photos on a big screen

The idea of the Folio is you can have your regular smartphone when you want it, but if you want to watch a TV show or show off a photo, you can quickly transform it into a large tablet.
