Every year, the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona showcases the latest advancements in connected devices. This year’s edition, held in 2024, was no different, with several innovative concepts hinting at future consumer products.

  1. App-Free Smartphone:
    Deutsche Telekom, in collaboration with American start-up Brain.ai, exhibited an original smartphone prototype at this year’s Mobile World Congress. Unlike traditional smartphones, this device lacks any applications. Instead, it features an AI-powered personal assistant capable of handling various practical tasks, such as vacation planning or restaurant reservations. However, the absence of access to social networks might be a downside for some users.
  2. Wrist-Wrapped Smartphones:
    At the Barcelona event, two manufacturers showcased prototypes for smartphones that can be worn like a wristband. Motorola introduced a wrap-around smartphone, initially unveiled at Lenovo World Tech in the USA. The device can bend around the wrist, allowing users to carry it hands-free. Similarly, Samsung presented a smartphone with a flexible screen that wraps around the wrist. Despite their impressive designs, these concepts are not yet ready for commercial release.
  3. Transparent PC:
    Lenovo showcased a groundbreaking PC model with a completely transparent screen, akin to certain televisions. This 17-inch PC boasts a borderless MicroLED screen, and its keyboard is replaced by a virtual panel that can serve as a touch screen for tasks like drawing. Although this prototype is futuristic, it is not intended for commercial release.
  4. Smart Ring:
    Samsung introduced the Galaxy Ring, a smart ring equipped with integrated sensors to monitor the wearer’s fitness or sleep in real-time. While specific functionalities remain undisclosed, Samsung plans to launch the product by the end of the year. Other tech giants, including Honor, are reportedly developing similar smart rings, though the Oura ring currently dominates this market segment.
