Motorola at Lenovo Tech World in Austin, Texas unveiled a concept smartphone sporting a FHD+ pOLED display that can be bent and shaped into different forms to satisfy different needs.


The Adaptive Display Concept, as the device is being called, runs a full Android experience and measures 6.9 inches when you lay it flat. You can then bend it in half, reducing the display's size down to a more compact 4.6 inches. From there, you can stand the device upright, in an arc or even wrap it around your wrist. Motorola says turning the device into a bracelet of sorts allows it to function like the external display on Razr+.

Not much else is known about the Adaptive Display Concept yet, including whether or not it'll eventually make it to market. The device did hit the event stage as part of a demonstration, where the flexibility of the display was shown off.


Motorola says the technology used by the device builds on its previous foldable and rollable display innovations across smartphones and PCs.


Apart from the concept device, Motorola in cooperation with Lenovo also discussed the generative artificial intelligence (AI) models they have in the works, which they tout would enhance how you might customise your devices.


One model, for example, can produce multiple unique images that reflect your personal style based on a photo of your outfit. You can then use the generated images to create custom backgrounds, which you can use on your devices.


MotoAI, meanwhile, is an in-development personal assistant for both smartphones and PCs. Motorola says the model never stops learning and can adapt to patterns and usage activities with natural voice or text interaction capabilities. You can have it answer questions, draft messages and schedule tasks, among other functions.


"While most large language models run cloud-based operations, MotoAI can process data and run tasks locally on-device, which offers users enhanced data privacy," Motorola touts. "MotoAI also features an on-device knowledge base where the user’s patterns and preferences inform their experience, making it more dynamic, personal and helpful over time."


On top of these, Motorola is also developing a model capable of scanning documents in real-time and another that's capable of text summary.
