Motorola, a subsidiary of Lenovo since 2014, has once again pushed the boundaries of smartphone technology with its latest unveiling at Lenovo Tech World ’23. The company showcased some innovative concepts that may or may not make it to the consumer market.
The highlight of the show was the “adaptive display” prototype, a smartphone with a 6.9-inch FHD+ pOLED display that can be rolled into different forms, like a phone, a stand, or even a smart bracelet. Users can stretch it out entirely flat for a traditional smartphone experience, bend it to sit on a desk, or wrap it around their wrist, resembling a smart slap bracelet.
While this concept is intriguing, it’s important to note that it’s still in the developmental stage, and there’s no guarantee it will become a consumer product in the near future. Lenovo, however, is known for pushing the boundaries with its products, so it’s not entirely far-fetched.
In addition to the flexible prototype, Motorola also introduced AI-powered features. Users can create custom wallpapers based on AI-generated images that reflect their style. The company also announced “MotoAI,” a personal voice and text assistant for PCs and smartphones, designed to answer questions, draft messages, schedule tasks, and more, all while prioritizing user privacy.
Furthermore, Motorola is exploring document scanning technology to improve image quality by minimizing wrinkles and shadows in scanned documents and images. These innovations demonstrate the company’s commitment to staying at the forefront of technological advancements.
While we may not see the slap bracelet phone on the market soon, Motorola’s dedication to cutting-edge concepts and AI-driven features continues to push the boundaries of what smartphones can do.
