The American tech giant and smartphone manufacturer Motorola is back with yet another slap bracelet phone concept. This concept was shared at the Lenovo Tech World 23. Their latest concept is for a mobile prototype that can be worn as a smart bracelet, as a rolled mobile, or as a phone. The current concept for the mobile of Motorola, currently a subsidiary of Lenovo, appears to be an advanced version of a prototype that Lenovo showcased back in 2016.
The flexible mobile when it was introduced back in 2016, had a large buyer group.
What Is Motorola’s New Slap Bracelet Phone?
The users and enthusiasts are welcoming this prototype and the popular name for this mobile in the user community is a bendy phone. This time the company is providing a bendy phone that can be slapped around the wrist, just like you wear a bracelet.
The features of the prototype:
- The flexible mobile prototype of Motorola will be designed as a big smartphone.
- It will have an OLED display, that is flexible.
- The OLED display could be bent backward so that it can be wrapped around the wrist.
- It could be worn as cuff-style wristwear.
- The company says that this bendy could have more poses than just having a snap bracelet mode.
- The prototype has an orange-colored fabric backing.
What we know as said by Motorola is that:
Motorola said that the now-introduced concept will enable the users to upload or capture a picture of the outfit that they are wearing and this would produce unique AI-generated images that reflect their style. The users can transform these AI-generated images into wallpapers, that can be customized, on their devices.
The new prototype has gotten users to think about the various possible scenarios that they might face while using the mobile.
Lexi Valasek, the 312 Labs Innovation Strategy Lead at Motorola Mobility, the subsidiary of Lenovo that manufactures mobile phones, demonstrated the mobile on her own wrist. When she slapped it into her wrist it appeared to be just a metal square attached to a watch band. It’s assumed that the band is magnetic to prevent the chance of the mobile getting unbent from the arm and falling off. There were no crunch sounds while the mobile was slapped into the wrist.
Valasek spoke about the bendy phone concept in about a minute and took nearly the same time to showcase the wallpaper generation feature of the device, the one that generates wallpaper with AI after taking the phone of the user.
The company has also showcased a video of a user doing the same. People want to know what would happen to the slap bracelet phone if they rest their arm on a table or a similar place. They want to know whether the mobile would get away from their wrist, while another group of people is more curious to know what would happen if they move their arm too fast. Their concerns were if they moved their arm too fast whether the mobile would stay on the wrist as its own or would it fly off and get damaged.
