Introducing Moto Unplugged, designed to help users stay in the moment while staying connected

Smartphones keep people connected to everything that matters and more, but sometimes users need to unplug and remove distractions. In recent years, Motorola has been tracking trends and has seen an increase in consumers, particularly younger consumers, that want to disconnect and have a healthier relationship with their phones. Research has shown that today’s solutions are unable to adequately help users disconnect, lack customization options, and are too easy to abandon. 

Based on these insights, Motorola is introducing a new software experience called Moto Unplugged to help consumers take a break from the distractions of their phones. Moto Unplugged empowers people to take a step back and match their mobile experience with their mindset by allowing them to choose when and how they want to disconnect. 

What makes Moto Unplugged standout is the ability to enter a special mode, allowing each user to tailor a break time to meet their individual needs. Setup is simple. The user can select permitted apps and notifications, as well as require a password to end their session. Then, when they are ready to unplug, select a time frame and start a digital break.

If a user needs to focus during work hours, they could choose to access only their email or Microsoft Teams and not see any other app for a set timeframe. Or, for those looking to disconnect for some personal time, users can choose to limit which social media and messaging apps are accessible and which are temporarily blocked and enjoy a break for however long they choose. 

Moto Unplugged lets users create their own oasis without totally disconnecting, so they can relax and stay in control. That means more quality time with friends and family, more time to focus on the work that matters now, and more balance in users’ day-to-day life.

Moto Unplugged is available on motorola razr across North America. In the coming weeks it will be available to razr 40 Ultra/razr+ and razr 40 devices globally, and will be brought to additional devices in the future.

Motorola redefines what is possible with AI and adaptive display devices at Lenovo Tech World ‘23

For years, Motorola has been at the forefront of innovation, and our commitment to bringing meaningful and thoughtful experiences to our consumers remains unwavering. We’ve embedded AI features in many areas of our devices, like camera, battery, display and device performance. But the modern smartphone experience is going through a transformative shift, with AI at the center, serving as both a personal assistant and a tool to enhance everyday tasks, improve performance, and create more meaningful experiences for our users.

That’s why, this year at Lenovo Tech World ’23, Motorola is taking its AI endeavors to another level and showcasing innovations that redefine the possibilities of flexible hardware and also introduced exciting new AI features. These features range from generative theming to a sophisticated personal assistant.

Unveiling an adaptive display concept that molds to our consumer needs 

Motorola continues to push boundaries and invest in flexible display technology and devices. This new conceptual device uses a FHD+ pOLED display that can be bent and shaped into different forms depending on users’ needs. This adaptive display concept further builds upon the display and mechanical innovations from our foldable and rollable devices in both the smartphone and PC categories.

The adaptive display concept can be adjusted from a standard Android phone experience in a flat position to being wrapped for a wrist-worn experience or positioned in several stand modes. When laid flat, the 6.9″ display runs a full Android experience, just like any smartphone. In the upright position, the device can be adjusted into a self standing position, running a more compact form of full Android on a 4.6″ display. Users can also wrap the device around their wrist for a similar experience to the external display on motorola razr+ to stay connected while on the go.

Introducing a new set of Motorola AI concepts

Motorola understands the importance of personalization for consumers. That’s why we’re committed to exploring how AI can enhance device customization to provide users with a truly one-of-kind experience. Motorola has developed a generative AI model that runs locally on the device to allow users to extend their personal style to their phone. With this concept, users can upload or capture a picture of their outfit to produce multiple unique AI-generated images that reflect their style. These images can then be used as a custom wallpaper on their device.

MotoAI
Lenovo is developing a personal assistant for both PCs and smartphones. This AI model never stops learning. It has a foundational model uniquely personalized to the user while still protecting their privacy. It also has a knowledge base that adapts to patterns and usage with natural voice or text interaction capabilities. 

The MotoAI concept is an innovative approach to the latest trend in AI with large language models (LLMs). Users can engage with their personal MotoAI assistant to answer questions, draft messages, schedule tasks, and so much more. While most LLMs  run cloud-based operations, MotoAI can process data and run tasks locally on-device. which offers users enhanced data privacy. MotoAI also features an on-device knowledge base where the user’s patterns and preferences inform their experience, making it more dynamic, personal, and helpful over time. 

2.0 Mobile Doc Scan
Recognizing the growing demand for real-time document scanning on the go, Motorola has introduced an AI concept model that enhances the Doc Scanner capability currently integrated in Motorola camera systems. This innovation aims to improve final image quality by minimizing wrinkles and shadows to ensure documents or images appear as crisp and clear as possible.

AI Text Summarization

Motorola is dedicated to helping users boost productivity through various applications and solutions. Our AI Text Summarization, takes longform chats, emails, or reports, and distills them down to key messages for quick comprehension.

Privacy Content Obfuscation

In an era of social sharing, safeguarding user data remains paramount. Motorola’s Privacy Content Obfuscation concept leverages AI to seamlessly protect user information and privacy by intelligently identifying and blurring areas containing profile pictures and names in social posts.

Looking into the future
In a bold step toward the future, Motorola has unveiled four AI concepts that promise to redefine consumers’ daily experiences. From generative AI wallpapers that breathe life into your device’s screen, to advanced AI privacy features like blurring out sensitive information, and even the magic touch of transforming crinkled receipts into pristine documents, it’s clear convenience is at the forefront of innovation. Moreover, with the ability to effortlessly summarize notes, emails, and chats, Motorola continues to forge ahead in its mission to deliver innovative, on-the-go solutions that enhance mobility, pocketability, and overall ease for consumers. The future has never looked brighter.

Motorola is making photo editing effortless with Auto Enhance from Google Photos

Google Photos Auto Enhance is now available exclusively in the Motorola camera interface on the new motorola edge 40 neo, motorola edge 40, moto g84 5G and moto g84 5G

More than 93% of Motorola consumers effortlessly open the camera application and capture photos without any additional settings or post-capture editing. With that in mind, Motorola will add the Google Photos Auto Enhance algorithm into the camera software of the new motorola edge 40 neo, motorola edge 40, moto g84 5G and moto g54 5G.

Users can toggle the Auto Enhance option in the camera’s user interface to instantly enhance color and lighting after a photo is taken. Once applied, the AI-based algorithm adjusts the components of each photo, carefully analyzing the image and automatically improving white balance, exposure, highlights, shadows, contrast, saturation, and more.

Foldable fun for everyone: Introducing the new motorola razr

Meet the new motorola razr – a device designed for trendsetters who like to stand out from the crowd, and digital minimalists who want to disconnect and remove distractions. The razr is crafted with the same iconic form factor and compact design as the razr+, unfolding into a full-sized premium smartphone. 

With a price tag lower than any other foldable on the U.S. market, the new razr makes foldable technology accessible to a much broader audience. Plus, with new software that makes users find a better balance between their lifestyle and the way they use technology, unplugging is easier than ever.

Unplug your way

With the introduction of the razr, Motorola is unveiling a new software experience called Moto Unplugged to help users take a break from their smartphone, removing distractions so they can be more present. Gen Z is already establishing its own rules for how, why, and when it engages with technology, especially smartphones. That’s why Motorola has created Moto Unplugged. An experience empowering users to take a step back and match their mobile experience with their mindset by allowing them to choose when and how they want to disconnect. 

The setup is simple. Users choose essential apps and contacts they still want available. Then whenever they want to unplug, select a time frame and start a digital break. For example, if a user needs to focus during work hours, they could choose to access only their email or Microsoft Teams and not see any other app for a set timeframe. Or, for those looking to disconnect for some personal time, users can choose to limit which social media and messaging apps are accessible and which are temporarily blocked and enjoy a break for however long they choose. That means more quality time with friends & family, more time to focus on the work that matters now, and more time to balance your day-to-day life.

Whatever the motivation may be, Moto Unplugged helps users disconnect and break away from the distractions of their phone. 

Iconic flip design with a versatile camera system 

The new razr comes with a distinct and comfortable look-and-feel, combining Corning Gorilla Glass and a premium vegan leather that’s easy to grip and open, while being soft to the touch. The device is available in a range of fun, trendsetting colors including Cherry Blossom, Sage Green, Vanilla Cream, and Summer Lilac.

With the new razr, users are able to stand the device on its own at multiple angles thanks to Flex View technology, which offers new ways to interact, capture, and create. Users can angle the device to easily view recipes while cooking, follow an exercise coach online, video chat with friends, and more. Or, use the device as a tripod and capture stunning images and videos with hands-free recording.

The new motorola razr also features the highest resolution sensors on any of our foldable devices for both front and rear camera systems. Capture crystal-clear photos and selfies in any light with a 64 MP main camera and OIS, or take everything from breathtaking wide-angle shots to extreme close-ups with a 13MP Ultrawide + Macro Vision lens. Plus, use the 32 MP front camera for high-quality video calls. 

Immersive entertainment experience with unbelievable battery life

The razr is complete with a massive 6.9” pOLED display and up to 144Hz refresh rates for seamless scrolling, gaming, and switching between tasks. This device also features Dolby Atmos®, so users can enjoy a richer multidimensional audio experience that brings out more depth, clarity, and details from their favorite entertainment when enjoyed over the device’s two large stereo speakers or headphones. The new Spatial Sound by Moto also makes sound feel even more immersive and fills the space around the user whether they’re listening to music or watching their favorite movie.

The motorola edge family in North America continues to evolve, consistently placing style, functionality and advanced features at the forefront. The new motorola edge-2023 embodies this commitment, offering a beautiful and comfortable design with premium features. 

With its borderless curved edges, the new motorola edge fits perfectly in users’ hands. The contoured edges make it comfortable to hold, and the vegan leather back is soft, stylish, and easy to grip. Featuring a sandblasted aluminum frame and IP681 underwater protection, the new motorola edge comes ready for life’s adventures.  And while it’s one of the thinnest in its class (7.64mm), the motorola edge packs in a powerful 50MP camera system with the widest aperture available in a smartphone for stunning shots. 

The widest smartphone aperture for photos worth framing 

Sharp and bright photos are guaranteed with the 50MP high-res camera system, which features 2.0µm Ultra Pixels to capture more light, instant all-pixel focus with 32x more focusing pixels2 and OIS for stabilized shots, providing faster, more accurate low-light performance. Users will be able to focus faster with the Ambient Light Sensor that instantly measures the amount of light. This speeds up focus time, especially in low-light situations. There’s also an incredibly wide aperture (f/1.4) that allows for 64% more light3 to reach the sensor, resulting in:

  • Better performance in low-light environments for beautiful shots at all hours 
  • Soft-focus backgrounds behind one’s subject to create a professional-looking, natural bokeh effect
  • Faster capture speeds, resulting in crisp, detailed photos

Offering two perspectives, the 13MP ultrawide camera with Macro Vision has users covered when they need to fit more of the scene in view, or capture fine details in extreme close-ups. In the front, a 32MP hi-res selfie cam with auto focus creates brilliant shots. Taking content creation even further, the motorola edge offers new video and camera enhancements like Horizon Lock Stabilization, Video Portrait and Vlog Mode. The camera features also include Audio Zoom, which filters out ambient noise so consumers get the best sound quality when zooming in on a specific subject.

Cinematic entertainment experiences without borders

For those looking for edge-to-edge entertainment, consumers can truly immerse themselves in all their favorite content on the borderless 6.6″ pOLED display. The HDR10+ display meets cinematic standards for color range, brightness, color accuracy, and contrast level, so everything looks exactly as it should. And users can view it all in over a billion shades of true-to-life color with improved brightness and infinite contrast. 

When switching from one’s photos to games or other apps, users can look forward to a fast 144Hz refresh rate that adjusts automatically to optimize battery life. The beautiful display pairs perfectly with Dolby Atmos®, which delivers the ultimate immersive audio experience by adding more depth, clarity and details across your favorite entertainment. In addition, the device offers support for Motorola Spatial Sound. 

Charge faster and go farther

With the new motorola edge, users can stream, work and play without worrying about battery life, thanks to 68W TurboPower™ charging4 that gives you power for the day in just 10 minutes5,6 and a 4400mAh battery that gives you over 30 hours of power for all the things you want to do

Users can also refuel by using up to 15W wireless charging4, or give a little battery life to a friend with 5W wireless power sharing.

Enjoy powerhouse performance

Powering all of these meaningful experiences is the MediaTek Dimensity 7030 chipset. Users can connect to blazing-fast 5G7 and Wi-Fi networks, including Wi-Fi 6E. This enables lightning-fast file transfers, high-resolution videos and peak download speeds up to 4.6 Gbps. Equipped with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage8, consumers can expect smooth performance and the ability to hold even more of their favorite content. Users can also unleash the full power of their smartphone with Ready For wireless connection9 and PC compatibility10.

The motorola edge runs on Android 13 and offers new security and software features for enhanced protection and safety.
