Lenovo and Motorola Unveil Smart Connect, A Seamless Multi-Device Experience

Transitioning between PC, Phone, and Tablet, and sharing content across your digital ecosystems made simple with Smart Connect

Lenovo and Motorola today launched Smart Connect, a software solution that unifies digital ecosystems to create a multi-device experience. The announcement demonstrates the companies’ commitment to delivering smarter software solutions for all. 

Ideal for all consumers, including students, enterprises, gamers, and creators, Smart Connect eliminates disruptions when transitioning between compatible* devices by seamlessly connecting core devices like phones, tablets, and PCs. This enables users to effortlessly switch tasks and maintain an uninterrupted workflow on their existing devices rather than purchasing devices of the same operating system to meet their specific needs.

Users can also easily amplify everything displayed on their phones onto a bigger screen. For example, they can easily move games, movies, TV shows, and apps from their phone to a TV or tablet for more space to work and play.

Smart Connect offers experiences such as:

  • Cross control: Navigate between your PC, tablet, and phone using a single keyboard and mouse, ensuring smooth cursor movement for a seamless control experience. This creates a streamlined experience across your device ecosystem, giving you the power to edit a document on your Lenovo PC, pull in content from your tablet and meet with your colleagues via smartphone at the same time. 
  • Swipe to stream: Transition app activities across devices with a simple swipe. Watch a video on a tablet and pick up where you left off on your PC, or listen to a podcast on your Motorola smartphone while jogging and continue listening on another device back at home. With just one swipe, you can maintain continuous playback without interruptions.
  • Notification sync: Stay up to date with messages and notifications across all devices without having to switch between them or interrupt your flow. 
  • Share hub: Effortlessly share files and media across compatible devices even those with different operating systems, to streamline tasks such as making travel plans or capturing research notes. With Share hub, students and creators have the ability to access and share large files across connected devices without taking up tons of storage. Whether it’s editing the latest viral TikTok dance on your PC or sharing group project files, share hub makes this process simple and storage efficient. 
  • Smart clipboard: Eliminate the need to email or use a messaging service to copy images to another device by copying and pasting text or images across phones, PCs, or tablets as if working on a single device.
  • Instant hotspot: Transform your phone into a hotspot for instantaneous and protected internet connectivity for your tablet or PC without the hassle of password entry. 
  • Webcam: Take advantage of high-resolution cameras and turn your smartphone into a webcam for video calls or livestreams, enhancing remote work presence. Users can also maximize video calls from their phone by moving them to a big screen TV.
  • More space to work and play: Amplify everything a Motorola device is capable of. With just your phone, you can stream videos, play games or launch a mobile desktop on a smart TV.

 

Smart Connect will introduce new experiences and possibilities for users and will be available on any Lenovo PC running on Windows 10 or later through the Microsoft store, and on select Lenovo tablets and Motorola devices through the Google Play Store.  Device compatibility and requirements to be provided at the time of launch. This feature will be available in the coming months, stay tuned for more!

Motorola celebrates the 10th anniversary of moto g family with 200 millions of units sold

Today marks the remarkable milestone of Motorola’s 10-year journey in the mid-tier smartphone segment, and the numbers alone speak volumes. Over 200 million moto g devices have been sold worldwide. From the first moto g, we transformed the industry and along the way brought to life core brand values such as empowering users and making technology inclusive by consistently bringing premium experiences and innovations to more consumer segments.

In the past 10 years, the moto g family has fostered Motorola’s most loyal audience, our consumer centric approach has helped introduce the brand to millions of new consumers that see their needs and expectations solved by this family.

moto g, the first generation redefined the smartphone industry
When Motorola launched the first generation of moto g, users only had two options: settle for an underpowered mobile experience or an older premium smartphone with outdated specs. The first moto g was created to make premium technology more accessible to all, bringing a quad core processor, 1GB RAM and a fun design with replaceable covers. It also featured Motorola’s beloved moto gestures, which until then were only available in Motorola premium devices. 

moto g becomes a family with the introduction of the 4th generation

The introduction of the moto g4 was a significant milestone for the moto g series. Our research showed us that if we had different categories, consumers would prioritize certain features according to the device price points. Additionally, as the consumer need for the latest mobile technology grew across the globe, the franchise expanded to meet this need, delivering powerful devices in a larger range of price points. Moreover, consumers were empowered with Moto Maker. With Moto Maker, you could choose the back plate color, the accent color and a front plate color. You were also able to choose an engraving and customize the software greeting that you saw when the phone booted up. These features enabled you to customize your devices even further to fit your aesthetic. Notably, the moto g4 also set a new standard within the family by being the first moto g device to incorporate a fingerprint sensor and a PDAF camera system with laser autofocus which was otherwise only available to motorola consumers on our premium devices.

moto g celebrates its 10th generation with moto g100

The moto g100 marked the 10th generation in the celebrated moto g family. It was the first mid-tier device within the moto g family to bring a Snapdragon 8 series mobile platform, unleashing the power of 5G connectivity and boasting a colossal battery. But that wasn’t all – it introduced the cutting-edge Ready For platform, which redefined the smartphone experience by amplifying what the phone was capable of onto an external display without additional accessories.

moto g family radiates in Pantone Color of the Year with moto g84 5G

The moto g84 5G was the inaugural moto g to incorporate the Pantone Color of the Year, PANTONE Viva Magenta, and embrace ultra-premium vegan imitation leather. Its camera system showcases OIS and Ultra Pixel technology, delivering impeccable image clarity and vibrancy in any light. This device is further complemented by a 6.5″ ultrawide pOLED display with infinite contrast, illuminating each pixel independently to generate richer blacks and more vibrant colors, enhancing the overall entertainment experience. Plus, moto g84 5G is powered by embedded AI features in many areas like camera, battery, display and device performance, all tailored to improve users’ experience. 

The future of moto g family

When we embarked on this journey a decade ago, we knew the best way to predict the future was to go and invent it. We’re happy to share how this decade-long journey has redefined the very concept of mid-tier smartphones. Mobile devices will continue to become more and more essential to consumers as personal computing platforms and objects of self expression, therefore we will continue to be relentless in creating the most advanced, competitive and desirable products and experiences for our moto g consumers.

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.

The effect of Google Photos Auto Enhance is subtle yet impactful and the image processing will automatically happen in the background, so the user doesn’t need to worry about missing the moment.

On top of it, Motorola smartphones use Google Photos as the native application for all photos and videos, automatically organizing them so they’re searchable by the people, places, and things in them. This means users’ photos and memories are always easy to find and share.
