Motorola Is Working On A Smartphone With Self-Healing Display

Published

on

How many of you remember the LG G Flex? Yes, the smartphone which came out back on 2013 with a self-healing display. Well, LG’s G Flex essentially was able to heal just minor scratches and scuffs, however, what if you shatter a phone’s display and have it head itself? Sounds interesting right? That’s what Motorola seems to be working on right now.

Motorola seems to be working on a new technology to make this possible. The source cleverly compares to “Memory Cloth” from the movie “The Dark Knight.” Go watch it, if you haven’t already. Here, Motorola seems to be working on something similar, however, instead of electricity, they are using heat and instead of a cloth, we are looking at transparent polymer.

Basically, whenever the phone detects a crack or any kind of deformation, the user will be notified about the same and will ask for an action. Motorola describes the phone’s ability of self-healing with thermal elements. Apparently, the heat from the phone will be applied to “smart-glass” from within. It is said that this heat would trigger the smart glass’s shape memory properties, resulting in the glass reversing the damage.

Once the user detects the crack, the phone can be told to apply heat on a select spot on the display by encircling or drawing around it. Yes, this sounds too good to be true right? However, before you get too excited, let’s address few things about it. First of all, if and when Motorola manages to make this happen, the phone having this feature will not be “cheap.” Meaning we can expect it to cost more than your average smartphones since it would essentially allow the need to get your display replaced.

Moto X Force with Shatterproof Display Launched in India, Price Starting from Rs. 49,999

However, we would also like to inform that even if you have this smartphone having the ability to self-heal itself, you still will find yourself walking towards the service center if the crack or damage is beyond the point of self-healing. Basically, only minor deformations can be fixed using this. Also, whatever info we have right now about this smartphone are in patent papers. So don’t expect this to be a reality anytime soon.

Having said that, we would like to know your thoughts on this. Would you be interested in buying a smartphone with self-healing technology? Let us know in comment section below.
