Lenovo’s new Zuk Edge smartphone is built with nearly every feature I would look for in a phone in the year 2016. It has a 5.5-inch curved, Full HD display, a Snapdragon 821 processor, a 3,100mAh battery, and a USB-C port. Of course, it has a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and an eight-megapixel front-facing camera, too. Oh, and it also runs Android Nougat and has teeny tiny bezels. Lenovo markets its phone as having a fingerprint sensor embedded under its display. In actuality, yes, the fingerprint sensor is embedded under the same glass that covers the display, but it isn’t as revolutionary as Lenovo makes it sound. The sensor is beneath a home button, so it isn’t really hidden at all.
So while the phone isn’t as innovative as it could have been, it hints at what I hope will be the broader 2017 trend of a bezel-less phone, as well as more discreet fingerprint sensors. The Edge only costs up to $360. Exciting 2016 stuff! (There appears to be a headphone jack, so the Edge isn’t as 2016 as it could be.)
At last week’s Lenovo Tech World 2016 in San Francisco, Lenovo launched two major products: their Lenovo PHAB2 Pro and Lenovo Moto Z. While the PHAB2 Pro is the first phone built with Google GOOGL -1.02% Tango, the Moto Z is the first device to have externally hot swappable modules called Moto Mods. During their press conference announcing both devices, Lenovo also teased some next-generation prototypes based on flexible display technology. Obviously, a lot of people got very excited about this teaser, but little else was known about these devices. Thankfully, we had a chance to sit down with Lenovo and ask some questions about their CPlus and Folio prototype phone and tablet.
There are some video regarding these-
here we can see the phonescan make watch and the tabs can be made phone because of its flexible body. the future generation smart phones has add many things and technologies. But these is totally new and Lenovo had a session with analysts and press that broke down the idea behind these devices as well as showed them off to press and even let press try them out. This is the first time to my recollection that any flexible / bendable / foldable device has been actually shown to the press and analysts and actually allowed them to touch it and use it. What makes these two devices so unique is that they aren’t renders or videos, they are real products that actually work and are very likely something we could easily see within the next 5 years. In fact, during this session held by Lenovo CTO Peter Hortensius, he answered a question about when these devices could be expected in the market, and while he didn’t give any definite answers, he also said that such devices could be expected within 5 years.
there are some videos related to these technology lounch-
So you can see how the technology is changing!!! after watching these videos everyone will be exited about the future trends of smartphones. So hope for the best!!!!
