A concept gadget from OnePlus, which is a well-known brand in the market for its mid-range flagship-level smartphones, was unveiled at MWC. Active CryoFlux, a smartphone cooling technology modelled after a computer, is included with the OnePlus 11 Concept device. The manufacturer also made the phone’s back translucent to display the cryogenic liquid that is running through the device. The idea of this smartphone feels upscale thanks to the Guilloche Etching on the camera. Like the other OnePlus 11 models, the OnePlus 11 Concept includes three cameras with the same design. As of right now, the device is only in the concept stage with tonnes of fascinating functions, with no indication of when it will be released in stores.
6. Huawei Watch Buds
The Huawei Watch Buds is essentially a watch that can be opened to expose a set of headphones, as the name suggests. Huawei is attempting to blur the distinction between headphones and a smartwatch by combining them into a single gadget. It provides a practical answer to the issue of forgetting or misplacing your true wireless earbuds while using them regularly. With a single push, the Huawei Watch Buds’ novel design allows you to quickly reveal the earbuds while still wearing the watch’s display. The internal battery is sufficient to power both the watch and the earbuds, lasting up to three days with regular use on a full charge. The Huawei Watch Buds‘ earphones don’t appear to interfere with the operation of the watch. The Watch Buds has a 1.43-inch AMOLED display, multiple sensors for tracking your health, and other traditional capabilities of a smartwatch. The truly wireless earbuds are equipped with all the necessary features, including touch controls, dual microphones, and more. The Huawei Watch Buds with Black Leather Strap will cost $490 and comes with a year of Huawei Loss Care worth $75.
7. Lenovo ThinkBook Rollable Concept
Lenovo is no stranger to producing some of the most bizarre and innovative items we see at tech events, with recent examples including the ThinkBook Plus Twist and Yoga Book 9i, which were both unveiled at CES 2023. At MWC this year, the company also unveiled a concept design for a laptop with a rollable screen. When you turn a switch on the side of this Lenovo laptop, the screen extends upward, giving you a considerably broader vertical canvas than it initially appears to have. This larger screen has a diagonal measurement of 15.3 inches and an aspect ratio of 8:9, which is equivalent to stacking two 16:9 panels. Taller screens can be ideal for tasks that need much scrolling, and Lenovo has been heavily betting on that with recent products like the aforementioned Yoga Book 9i. With this, Lenovo has produced enough interesting items in its bag that may one day become a reality.
These were the gadgets that managed to impress the most during MWC 2023, even though it was jam-packed with showcases from various brands. Overall, the event featured a good selection of various devices rather than merely being a showcase of futuristic ideas that we would never be able to purchase. We anticipate having these products in our hands before 2023 ends, as different brands continue to push the limits of smartphone technology.
