Lenovo not only produces smartphones and VR headsets but also laptops, tablets and desktop PCs are important consumer electronics for the Chinese manufacturer. Lenovo is known for its innovative 2-in-1 laptop designs, also known as a convertible PC. These laptops are easy to convert into a tablet. Today we discovered a patent for a completely new laptop design, thanks to the application of a flexible display.

We have already seen a lot of application areas of the flexible display. From a roll-up tablet and roll-up TV to foldable smartphones. For example, we reported yesterday about a patent concerning a Motorola folding smartphone that can be unfolded into a tablet. This time, however, it is a Lenovo laptop with a huge flexible screen.
