Lenovo Cplus Folio and will not appear on the market in their current form, but according to Peter Hortensius, chief technological officer of the manufacturer, it will take “less than five years” before such devices become available to consumers. He does not think bendable smartphones or tablets in this form already appear in the next two years.
