If you arent excited about foldable phones yet, maybe this video will change your mind. It shows a Lenovo prototype that appears to be fully functioning, it loads apps and everything.
The phone is quite tall, which is alright as you can fold it in half. It wont fold flat, though, the hinge reminds us of the Microsoft Surface Book 2.

Notice the black spot on the screen where the hinge is. Its only on the right side, suggesting its an issue of the prototype rather a technological limitation. Also, theres quite the chin at the bottom. Still, its wildly impressive and we expect that the tech will be further improved before a commercial launch.
Last year, Lenovo showed the Cplus a phone that bends into a bracelet. It featured a 4.35 AMOLED screen and real leather on its back. The company also hinted that this foldable phone may be marketed under the legendary Moto RAZR brand and is also working on a flexible laptop.
Other companies are prepping foldable phones as well. Samsung and Huawei have publicly promised such phones, LG has relevant patents too.
