The Mobile World Congress (MWC) is going on right now, and some of our favorite brands but showing off the latest and greatest devices, technology, and concepts. Infinix is a brand it’s not known by too many people, but it made an appearance at the show. According to a new report, Infinix showed off its color-changing concept phone at MWC. And, looks pretty cool.

Not too many people know about Infinix in the West, but it definitely deserves more recognition. The company made the Infinix Note 30 Pro, a very well-reviewed device that we had the honor of reviewing last year. You can check out our Infinix Note 30 Pro review if you want to see why it gained a five-star score.

Back in 2021, Infinix gave us a look at its color-changing phone concept, and it definitely caught our attention. It was a phone with a monochromatic display on the back. The display was an E-Ink display that could display different patterns.

This time around, Infinix brought us much the same thing; however, it decided to add color. Looking at the demonstration below, we see the back divided into distinct rectangular sections. Each section looks like a giant pixel and can be triggered independently. 

Because of this, the phone can generate patterns on the back. With as large as these sections are, you couldn’t realistically expect them to form a picture. However, they appear to just be a way to decorate the back of the phone. Say, you want to have a blue device, well, you could change the back panel to blue. If you change your mind and want to switch to red, you could do so.

Since we’re only looking at a concept phone in the video above, it’s not reflective of any final product that Infinix could produce. In the video, we see a diamond pattern in the middle that does not change with the rest of the colors. That section is actually fixed and does not change.

If Infinix does pursue an actual product with this technology, we could probably expect it in the next couple of years.
