For more than 20 years, the global experts in color consistency and accuracy at the Pantone Color Institute™ have announced the Pantone Color of the Year to highlight the symbolic nature of color while illustrating how our color choices reflect what is happening in our culture at a particular time. The Pantone Color of the Year is selected by analyzing global trends and themes throughout the year and considers all aspects of society from fashion to marketing, social media and even politics.
In our globally-exclusive partnership with Pantone in the smartphone category, we’ve seen how technology and color can intertwine to provide a vessel of expression, fostering creativity and unlocking immersive experiences along the way. To further this mission, we are introducing a special edition of the motorola edge 30 fusion in the Pantone Color of the Year 2023, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta, a fearless hue that writes a new narrative.
Previously launched in select European and Latin American countries and now making its United States debut, motorola edge 30 fusion packs flagship-level performance in an impossibly thin device with a sophisticated design. With class-leading features including a borderless 6.55" pOLED 144Hz1 display, Snapdragon® 888+ 5G mobile platform, and an advanced 50 MP camera system with OIS, the motorola edge 30 fusion is the perfect intersection of performance and beauty – and perfectly embodies the Pantone Color of the Year 2023.
In addition to Motorola’s existing mobile phone category collaboration, its parent company Lenovo is also announcing a broader global partnership for the technology category with Pantone for Color of the Year 2023 that is exclusive to computers and tablets. Attendees at Pantone’s Color of the Year unveiling will also be able to immerse into the ‘Magentaverse’ experience through Lenovo’s ThinkReality A3 augmented reality smart glasses.
the meaning behind Viva Magenta
The Pantone Color of the Year 2023, Viva Magenta conveys what it means to blend the virtual and the physical with enthusiasm. Rooted in red with cool blue undertones, this powerful hue is inspired by nature and explored through technology, revealing multiple dimensions and a new way of creating. As we engage in multiple spaces and places simultaneously, we blur the lines of what is tangible and digital and form our own hybrid identity. Viva Magenta symbolizes this relationship, highlighting how consumers use electronics to enhance their various personas and develop their own multifaceted self-expression – a sentiment that is perfectly aligned with Lenovo and Motorola’s brand ethos of empowerment.
“Our exclusive, global partnership with Pantone in the smartphone category moves into its next stage being the only smartphone manufacturer to launch a device in the Pantone Color of the Year 2023, allowing consumers to explore, create and break boundaries through technology,” said Ruben Castano, Executive Director of Customer Experience and Design for Motorola, a Lenovo company. “This color truly reflects the cultural moment we are in, and we look forward to bringing this powerful shade to motorola edge 30 fusion devices around the world.”
“It’s been a privilege to explore the ‘Magentaverse’ alongside Motorola and the motorola edge 30 fusion,” said Elley Cheng, Pantone Vice President and General Manager. “We are all united in the belief that design, innovation and personal expression can generate more creative solutions and cultivate a future that promotes joyousness and optimism.”
