Now We Know What HMD’s Fusion Actually Is

Originally pitched by HMD Global at Mobile World Congress 2024 (MWC), we now have a better understanding of what their Fusion concept is about.

The concept appears to be a return to modular phones, with a base unit and attachable “smart outfits.”

These so called “smart outfits” are tipped to expand the functionality of the phone.

This idea is not new, as Motorola’s Moto Mods indicated a similar approach in 2016. This concept even goes back to the Jolla phone in 2014, and an LG Electronics concept in Australia.

These devices failed, however, HMD is having another go at the concept.

A developmental toolkit and renders were released by the company, which show possible accessory designs.

HMD are promoting the concept on social media in Australia, Benelux, and France.

A graphic of a smartphone complete with add-ons was also shared by the company.

Text on the bottom left shows a “Coming Soon” tagline, which indicates HMD are planning a Fusion debut in coming months.

However, it remains to be seen if HMD can succeed and bypass the challenges faced by previous attempts at modular phones.

HMD Fusion’s future is hinging on addressing the previous flops of modular phones. Some tipsters are claiming if the company produce a well-designed base phone, a robust developer community, and practical smart outfits, it could succeed.
