Lenovo shows off concept flexible phone, AI assistant, smart projector and more

Lenovo let its imagination go wild and showed the result at the Lenovo Tech World summit. Note that these are concepts that may never see the light of day, though we do hope some of their functions make it to actual Lenovo products.

The Lenovo Cplus concept phone is very flexible, much more so than an LG G Flex, for example. It uses a 4.35” AMOLED screen and a real leather back (with a choice of many colors).

The goal is to wear the Android-running Cplus like a bracelet, which will allow it to function like a smartwatch. You can easily transition to smartphone mode (the handset uses ESIM).

There’s a new digital assistant – CAVA – which will use facial recognition and natural language processing. It will be able to make recommendations based on your calendar.

Besides your phone, Lenovo’s smart tech will also live in the SmartCast+, a cross between the Xperia Touch projector and Amazon Alexa (the company already has a classic smart speaker). Lenovo wants the SmartCast+ to be able to recognize objects and sounds, which will enable Augmented Reality functions.

Speaking of AR, the daystAR is a standalone headset, which will offer a 40° field of view and do all the processing itself (not needing a PC or a phone).

Then there’s a SmartVest, which will have much more accurate tracking of your exercise routine thanks to ECG sensors. It will also be much more comfortable to wear all day and night.
