Lenovo subsidiary Motorola is showing off several new hardware and software concepts at Lenovo Tech World ’23. Among other things, there are AI-enhanced apps to use your phone’s camera as a document scanner, summarize text on a website, or blur sensitive information in a screenshot (without needing to tell the appwhich information to blur).

But everyone has new AI features to show off these days. One thing that Motorola is showing that is really unusual for us is “adaptive display concept” which basically allows a smartphone with a foldable screen to become a smartwatch when placed around your wrist.

Motorola says the concept has a flexible 6.9-inch FHD+ pOLED display “that can be bent and shaped into different shapes depending on user needs.

For example, you can use it as a phone when it is unfolded. Fold it around your wrist and it will turn into a watch. Or fold it up so it stands up like a tent so you can use it to take selfies or participate in video calls without needing to hold your phone.

Motorola says that in the standing position, you effectively get a 4.6-inch screen. And when it’s on your wrist, you get “an experience similar to the external display of the motorola razr+,” meaning you can view notifications, widgets, or other apps, including video. players, multimedia playback controls or even a keyboard to reply to messages.

Is this a practical use of foldable screen technology? I have no idea. But it’s certainly something that stands out from many of the other foldable phones already on the market.

I suspect Motorola is showing off the concept as a way to show that it’s thinking outside the box and as a way to gauge interest before deciding whether to incorporate these designs into an actual product that you might buy someday.
