At the moment at Lenovo Tech World ‘23, many issues occurred. There was quite a lot of discuss AI. Nvidia’s Jensen Huang and his leather-based jacket had been there. There have been some celebrities I used to be most likely supposed to acknowledge. And Lenovo dusted off its bendable cellphone idea and let it out into the sunshine for practically two full minutes!

This model does appear extra superior than the one we noticed seven years in the past! We solely noticed that one go into snap-bracelet mode (with a frankly upsetting crunching noise), whereas the 2023 mannequin can do a pair extra poses, from the blissful worm to a tented mode — which, if we’re feeling much less beneficiant, is absolutely simply an incomplete cuff mode.

Motorola’s new prototype has a pleasant orange material backing. When Valasek snapped it onto her wrist, she did so over what regarded like a watch however appears to be a clean metallic sq. held on with a watchband. It could be magnetic and appears to be there to stop the cellphone cuff from flying off your wrist each time you progress your arm.

I additionally didn’t hear a crunch this time, which is reassuring. 

Valasek spent a few minute of the two-hour occasion speaking concerning the idea and one other minute or two utilizing it to exhibit some on-device wallpaper-generation characteristic after which walked off. That’s nearly double the display screen time the final model acquired in 2016. 

Is the flexible cellphone going to occur? Most likely not like this! A minute feels just like the candy spot proper earlier than “Oh, that’s cool” wears off and folks begin asking questions like “What occurs if I relaxation my wrist on a desk?” or “What occurs if I transfer my arm too quick?” or “How would I take a name?” 

But it surely’s nonetheless good to see a remnant of that ol’ Moto spirit, and you’ll draw a fairly straight line between the folding pill idea in Meghan McCarthy’s different hand within the video from 2016 to the Moto Razr Plus, an actual cellphone you should buy at the moment. That video, by the way, is stuffed with gems, from the reveal of the one and solely Google Tango system to a prolonged dialogue of Moto Mods — might they relaxation in peace. 

We stay up for seeing the flexible cellphone once more at Tech World 2030.
