It is no secret that the race for the foldable phone is on, and now it seems that LG and Lenovo are working together to take the whole deal to the next level: the foldable tablet. However, the source of the news is not official, so it might take a while until we get a confirmation from LG or Lenovo.

In a decade or two from now, it would not be amazing to have a computer implanted or at least externally attached and with a direct connection to the brain. After all, carrying a pocketable touchscreen device that can connect to the internet also sounded like science fiction two decades ago. However, until we get to choose where to place the phone implant, we will probably have to spend at least a few years using foldable devices.

LG and Lenovo are reportedly working on a foldable 13-inch tablet, and their roles in this effort are well defined: LG Display will make the panel, and Lenovo will be in charge of manufacturing the whole thing. Sadly, there are no other technical details to talk about. On the other hand, the inside source who talked about this revealed that LG Display and Lenovo signed the deal and they already started working on the upcoming device.

The OLED panel that folds in half and will be used for the device should be ready to reach Lenovo in late 2019, so there is plenty of time for LG and Lenovo to get things right until then. The problem is that others might be able to hit the market with a similar technology even sooner. These being said, we only need to wait for the next rumors, because there is definitely a lot of time separating us from the official confirmation of the upcoming Lenovo foldable tablet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
