Motorola’s “adaptive display” smartphone design may be used as a slap bracelet or folded in numerous ways to stand upright.
Nowadays, the majority of people carry their phones around with them at all times. But what if you could carry your phone around with you at all times?
Motorola unveiled its latest idea for a smartphone that would fit around your wrist like a slap bracelet this week at the Lenovo Tech World annual event.
According to a press statement from the business on Tuesday, the phone is a “adaptive display concept” that can be “bent and shaped into different forms depending on users’ needs.”
Develop skill through practical learning
Developing capabilities is essential for companies looking to innovate more than the norm.

During flat lay, the 6.9-inch screen of the phone “runs a full Android experience.” The phone has a 4.6-inch display and runs “a more compact form of full Android” when folded into an upright position. It can also, of course, be fastened to your wrist like a very large watch for hands-free operation when you’re out and about.
Regarding how practical a wrist phone might be, there are several valid concerns. After some time, does it start to feel heavy on your wrist? To what extent can the phone be bent and flipped before it breaks? In the first place, how would you ever present a case for this?
As of right now, the phone is still only a concept, so we don’t even know when it will be released or for how much.
There are other curved phones out there besides Motorola’s latest idea. At its Tech World event in 2016, Lenovo, the company that controls Motorola, unveiled a different idea for a phone that could be worn around the wrist. In the same year, Moxi Group, a Chinese firm, announced that it was developing a phone that could completely wrap around your wrist like a bracelet. Both of those haven’t been released on the market yet.
For now, at least, flip phones appear to be more practical choices. Due to the release of phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, Google Pixel Fold, and Motorola Razr+ in recent years, they have been considering a comeback.
