Motorola unveiled a prototype bending smartphone at Lenovo Tech World 2023, featuring a flexible display, wrist-wrapping capability, and comfort enhancements, but its production remains uncertain. Let us delve into the details and explore this innovative creation.

At the Lenovo Tech World 2023, Motorola, a subsidiary of Lenovo, unveiled the latest version of its prototype bending smartphone, reported H Tech. This unique "wrist" phone concept was initially introduced at the Tech World event in 2016 and has remained relatively low-profile since then. However, Motorola recently seized the chance to reintroduce the concept, offering a demonstration of its features at the event.

According to the company, the device boasts an FHD+ pOLED display that, when laid out flat, expands to a generous 6.9-inch panel. Conversely, it can be adjusted into a self-standing position, reducing the display size to 4.6 inches. 

Given its bending capability, it can also be comfortably wrapped around your wrist, offering a similar experience to the external display on the Motorola Razr+, ensuring connectivity on the go. In the release snapshot, a fabric material can be observed on the device's back, likely designed for enhanced comfort during extended usage.

Motorola states that, "This adaptive display concept further extends the display and mechanical advancements found in our foldable and rollable devices across both smartphone and PC categories."

Although Motorola's showcased bending concept certainly had the wow factor, it is essential to note that it remains a prototype, and not all prototypes progress to the production stage. 

Foldable smartphones, despite being around for approximately five years, have only recently gained popularity. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that wrist-wrappable bendy smartphones may not become a common sight for at least a few more years, reported HT Tech.
