By Staff Writer, 28 February 2024

Motorola, a subsidiary of Chinese tech giant Lenovo, unveiled an innovative concept at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

The company showcased a flexible smartphone, suggesting a potential future where phones could be worn on wrists like a wristwatch.

Although the bendable smartphone presented by Motorola is currently just a concept, its demonstration aimed to highlight the advancements in display technology, signaling Motorola's ambition to distinguish itself in the competitive smartphone market.

During the exhibition, a Motorola spokesperson illustrated how the phone could flex and bend, demonstrating its capability to wrap around a wrist or stand upright on a flat surface.

When worn on the wrist, the phone alters its display, with applications appearing at the top of the screen to accommodate the new orientation.

Described as "contextually aware," the device adapts its interface based on its bending configuration.

Drawing a parallel to the human spine, the Motorola representative elucidated the mechanism enabling the phone's flexibility.

In a captivating demonstration, the spokesperson showcased the phone's ability to capture an image of a dress and automatically generate a complementary background.

This feature transforms the device into a fashion accessory when worn, enhancing its appeal beyond conventional smartphone functionalities.
