At Mobile World Congress 2024, Lenovo has presented its latest portfolio of purpose-built AI devices, software, and infrastructure solutions, as well as two proof-of-concepts devices that challenge the traditional PC and smartphone form factors.

“Lenovo’s suite of AI-enabled, AI-ready, and AI-optimised devices, infrastructure, solutions, and services at MWC provides a wider look at our vision for ‘AI for All’. Lenovo’s AI technology benefits organisations of all sizes, driving intelligent transformation across all industries while reinforcing our commitment to sustainability,” Lenovo chair and CEO, Yuanqing Yang said.

The Lenovo ThinkBook Transparent Display Laptop concept revolutionises the interaction and creation experience with its 17.3-inch Micro LED transparent display, borderless screen, transparent keyboard area, and floating footpad design.

Through the power of Artificial Intelligence Generated Content (AIGC), the transparent screen opens new ways of work collaboration and efficiency by enabling the interaction with physical objects and overlaying digital information to create unique user generated content.

Users can seamlessly switch between the keyboard and drawing board with a supported pen, unlocking greater creative efficiency. AI in combination with transparent displays will open new ways of engaging with data and applications, offering opportunities to develop new features and form factors.

Lenovo and Motorola also showed a smartphone adaptive display concept that can be bent and shaped into different forms depending on users’ needs and was built upon the display and mechanical innovations from Lenovo foldable devices and rollable concepts.

Smart Connect offers seamless simplification through a unified ecosystem

Together, Lenovo and Motorola launched Smart Connect, a software solution that unifies digital ecosystems to create a seamless multi-device experience. Smart Connect unlocks cross-device synergies to maximise productivity, sharing device capabilities and data management.

With Smart Connect, users can switch tasks between a PC, phone, and tablet while maintaining an uninterrupted flow, enjoy secure file-sharing, access mobile apps on a PC, and manage phone notifications with ease.

With Smart Connect, users can watch a movie on a tablet and swipe it to a PC to resume, listen to a podcast on a smartphone and finish it on a laptop at home, work on a document on a laptop and edit it on their smartphone, and even start a presentation on a desktop PC and make it more portable by swiping it to a tablet.

Commitment to sustainability

Lenovo is rolling out new solutions to help customers extend the lifecycle of their devices with more sustainable and cost-efficient IT options. Through Lenovo Certified Refurbished, organisations can deploy refurbished PCs that cater to different computing needs while maintaining a reduced IT carbon footprint.
