The country general manager at Lenovo South Africa Thibault Dousson says the shift away from office environments due to COVID-19 has ushered in the largest remote workforce that has been ever seen – with many working from home for the first time.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the working landscape across the globe with many employers across the country requiring  employees to work remotely as part of the efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus.

While this dramatic transition undoubtedly came with some challenges, increased productivity and agility have been widely recognized as major benefits of this newfound flexibility in the workplace.

According to Lenovo’s recent Technology and the Evolving World of Work global research study, 77-percent of employees feel that companies will be more open to or even encourage letting workers work remotely once we get through this period.

In addition, 52-percent of respondents believe they will continue to work from home more than they did pre-COVID.

Dousson says these new working environments require the next wave of technology advancements.

“That’s where foldable technology comes in. Foldable PC technology is a groundbreaking innovation that launches a new category and redefines the way users interact with their devices. It allows users to be more fluid between their tech at home world, regardless of location.”

Dousson says user experience research suggests that users who frequently switch between phone, tablet and laptop are looking for something with different capabilities and benefits.

These insights shed light on a new need for devices to be multifunctional while staying as compact as possible. Ultimately, everyone wants a laptop experience without carrying a laptop. Foldable technology gives you the convenience of having multiple devices within one neat solution without compromising on performance.”

Dousson says the next generation of foldable technology will continue to build on the user experience feedback of today.

“Anticipating the future needs of consumers will continue to drive innovation forward. The first foldable PC, ThinkPad X1 Fold, is already in the market and it has an optional keyboard, digital pen, and accessories to unmatched user experience. When paired with 5G capabilities, the first foldable PC is the ultimate device for ultra-mobile users that want to be always connected.”

Dousson says the next iteration of foldable PCs will continue to evolve into different screen sizes, as well as rollable screens.
