If you thought we’ve reached the end of what cell phones could do, we’ve got some news for you.

At the Lenovo World Tech Expo last week, the company unveiled a prototype for a bendable cell phone that can be worn like a watch.

A phone like this has been in development since 2013 (and could hit the marketplace by next year) and Lenovo admits there are still some hurdles to overcome before it becomes a viable alternative for consumers.

Lenovo Chief Technology Officer Peter Hortensius discussed the issues. First, he said it’s hard to make a phone that can bend in and out, while, according to PC:
