Motorola is back with another concept of wrist phones

At Lenovo Tech World, Motorola showed off 23 weird concepts that may or may not ever see the light of day. The smartphone maker (a subsidiary of Lenovo since 2014) unveiled a prototype adaptive display that can be rolled into a phone, stand or smart bracelet. (It appears to be a more advanced version of the prototype Lenovo showed off in 2016.) Additionally, the company has highlighted several advanced AI-based features for Lenovo devices you can already buy.

The display concept is a rotatable smartphone with POLED+FHD display. The company wrote in its announcement blog post that the prototype can be bent and shaped into different shapes depending on the needs of users. The device can be completely flat so you can use it as a traditional smartphone, or you can bend it partially to sit on a table (similar to flip phones). You can even partially wrap the concept device around your wrist, as it becomes something of a smart slap bracelet.

The concept prototype has a 6.9-inch screen and runs a full Android experience, just like any smartphone (except for the iPhone). When placed in portrait mode, it switches to a compact form of Android on a 4.6-inch section of its screen.

As fun as it can be to watch futuristic concepts, we wouldn’t recommend holding your breath until this gadget becomes an available consumer product any time soon. However, Lenovo has proven time and time again that it has no fear when it comes to shipping consumer products, so who knows?

In addition to its flexible prototype, Motorola also introduced several AI-based concepts, because that’s what companies are doing in 2023.

Using this concept, users can upload or snap a photo of their outfit to generate multiple unique AI-generated images that reflect their style, the company wrote. You can then turn those AI generated images into a custom wallpaper for your device. The video, which the company published in its blog post, shows a person taking a selfie of an outfit (albeit using a rotatable display device), which the software then displays to various wallpaper options for the phone. It turns curved.

The company also announced that it is working on a personal voice/text assistant for PCs and smartphones that runs on a large language model (LLM). Called MotoAI, the company says the assistant can answer questions, draft messages, schedule tasks and more. MotoAI emphasizes privacy, data processing and execution of tasks locally rather than in the cloud. The company says the tool can uniquely personalize your device as it learns more about you and becomes more useful over time.

Motorola also tackled document scanning, introducing a feature that can minimize wrinkles and shadows when scanning physical images or documents with the phone’s camera. The goal of this innovation is to improve the quality of the final image by minimizing wrinkles and shadows to ensure that documents or images look as crisp and clear as possible, the company wrote.
