At the recent Tech World conference held in the city of San Francisco in California, not only did Lenovo unveil new Phab2 devices (the Phab2 Pro, the Phab2, and the Phab2 Plus) and new Motorola flagship devices (the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force), the Chinese tech giant also took the opportunity to reveal that it is busy exploring technology that would allow it to manufacture smartphones that come with bendable screens and can be worn around users’ wrists, like those nifty slap bracelets.
Maybe not. But that has not stopped top phone makers like Samsung and LG from trying. As a matter of fact, Samsung has gone on record just last month that it is working on a few designs that it might push to its manufacturers. It may be a long shot, but we could be seeing a working prototype in a year or so, and even a finished product for end users soon after.
Apart from the capacitive touchscreen revolution that begun in 2007, courtesy of the game-changing launch of the first ever iPhone, smartphone technology has not changed that much. Yes, we have seen upgrades year after year in terms of processor performance, displaying colors on screens, and materials used. But none so far that sparked the whole mobile industry the way Apple did seven years ago.
