Motorola introduced a new concept about a new smart phone whose screen can be extended by moving up.
It is scheduled to display the phone, at the “Mobile World Congress” technology conference in Barcelona, which has a flexible 5-inch screen that extends to 6.5 inches when pushed up.
In its new phone, “Motular” focuses on the idea of providing a large multi-tasking screen that allows for greater productivity, with the ease of placing it inside your pocket, according to what was reported by “CNBC” and viewed by “Al Arabiya.net”.
But the phone will not be available for purchase soon, as it is still in a stage of development, and the company did not disclose the expected price.
And Motorola is no longer the major player in the mobile phone industry that it once was — the company shipped 51 million units in 2021, according to German data firm Statista.
The design at least shows innovation in a market that has struggled to come up with new features to excite consumers.
The companies hope to change that with new form factors, such as foldable displays.
“Motorola is emphasizing ongoing innovation with flexible display technology with a large number of products testing a wide variety of form factors,” said Ben Wood, CCS Insight senior analyst.
The device comes at a time when smartphone makers are groaning.
Last year, the industry saw sales decline by 11.3% as consumers tightened their belts, exacerbating the ongoing trend of people holding onto their phones longer as major players ramp up in upgrades.
Lenovo, which owns Motorola, also unveiled a foldable laptop at the conference this week. Like a phone, your laptop slowly rises vertically so you can see more web pages or open several apps on a single screen.
