Motorola Mobility, a smartphone manufacturer under Lenovo, announced at

Motorola has been researching and developing terminals equipped with flexible displays for some time. The concept announced at Lenovo Tech World '23 is a terminal equipped with a 6.9-inch display, which Motorola describes as an 'adaptive display terminal.'

If you don't do anything, it will feel like a 'smartphone with a 6.9 inch display'.

However, since it is a display that can change its shape flexibly, you can press it against your arm and wrap it around the shape of your arm.

It's like a wristwatch.

It seems that if you bend it properly, it can stand on its own without a stand. As the 3-button navigation is displayed at the bottom of the lined up icons, the bottom of the device in this state does not serve as a display and seems to be equivalent to a 4.9-inch display.

You can install it stably by bending it so that both ends touch the ground.

You can bend it quite freely.

Although the concept is interesting, there are concerns about the safety of having an expensive smartphone wrapped around your arm without it being completely secured, and I get the impression that the 6.9-inch display isn't being utilized much. However, it is unclear whether it will be put into practical use.

There are examples of devices with foldable displays such as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G.
