Last month, Lenovo revealed the Cplus, a concept smartphone with a flexible form factor that enables it to be wrapped around a user's wrist, like a giant smartwatch. At its TechWorld Conference this week in Shanghai, the company showed off the device again, and it seems to have a slightly larger display than the version it unveiled in June.
The earlier model - as reported by TechRadar and CNET at the time - had a 4.26-inch flexible AMOLED display. The device that Lenovo showed in Shanghai this week appears virtually identical, but according to information spotted by ITHome at the Lenovo event, it now has a larger 4.35-inch screen.
The Cplus runs a customized version of Android, and features an embedded SIM card, along with a 'wrist micro motion triggered camera' that can take photos and record video while in wearable mode.
In its current form, the Cplus isn't destined to go on sale, but Lenovo said that similar devices could be available to buy within 2-3 years. Lenovo also showed off a concept image for a flexible laptop last month, so it seems the company is eager to bring such devices to market.
Manufacturers have been showing off concept devices like these for many years now, of course. In April, Samsung said that it was unlikely to launch any foldable devices until 2019 at the earliest, as display technologies still need more time to mature.
