Lenovo has announced two unusual smartphones – a model that uses special cameras to scan its surroundings and a handset with optional snap-on parts.
The Phab2Pro’s sensors allow it to make sense of objects and close-by spaces, allowing graphics to be intelligently added to real-world views.
The Moto Z uses magnets to add optional hardware modules to the phone’s rear including a speaker and a projector.
Analysts said the innovations might prove a tough sell.
That would complicate Lenovo’s efforts to turn around sales of its own phones and those of the Motorola division it bought from Google for $2.8bn in 2014.
