Lenovo to launch a tablet, with an LG-made foldable screen. That is, if a new report from South Korea is to be believed.
The Lenovo foldable tablet will have a 13" display when it's opened, and 8" to 9" when folded. It should be sold in China, at least at first. LG Display sees more opportunities in the foldable tablet market than in foldable smartphones, allegedly. That is because with a phone the screen is hidden when folded. But that downside turns into an advantage with tablets – they would be less bulky and easier to carry when folded.
It is also easier to make durable panels for tablets, since phones need to be folded and unfolded dozens (if not hundreds) of times a day, whereas with tablets there will be a much lower frequency of folding.
