The technology bears a promise

Is there an expression "bears a promise"?
Like in "the new technology bears a promise".
I see there are typical expressions "holds a promise", "brings a promise" "shows a promise", but "bears"?
I couldn't find any good online dictionary to look it up. I used a google search "technology * a promise", with the quotes and the star - that helped a bit.
I don't know why I became obsessed with this expression, I guess, there is a positive meaning which I am trying to convey - elegantly in academic style - that a new technology is giving a hope, and the above expressions don't seem adequate.
