Motorola files patent for a foldable smartphones

Motorola patented a foldable smartphone that when extended would transform into a tablet, and by the looks of the drawings found over at the World Intellectual Property Organization the hinge would have a similar design to that of the Lenovo YOGA Android tablet.

What's not as common are devices with three displays, but a new Microsoft patent shows off the possibility, and the display is not in what might be considered a typical position as it's located on the device's hinge.

According to a report from Slashgear, the company received approval in March.

ZTE uses two screens in its folding Axon M phone, but how about a folding device that uses three? But Motorola is in a mood to add some twist to its first foldable phone.

Foldable devices with dual displays could have a significant role in the future of computing, as not only Microsoft but also other electronics giants have been working on ways to bring the concept to real-life products.

Apart from the design, the device will have wireless charging support. Notably, the patent was originally filed in September 2016.

It is worth noting that designing a truly foldable smartphone is certainly a tremendous task. Yu in his conversation with Cnet.com had talked about a significant gap between the two screens of the phone which may be causing all the delay.

The phone has a foldable display than when stretched will result in a tablet.

As of now, the development of Motorola's foldable smartphone is still unknown but it's hoped that we can have more details about the said handset. While the information on this phone is very scarce, what we've heard so far is that it will come with an all-screen and no-bezel design. There is also a third display at the hinge. This wouldn't be the first device to include some sort of 3D image capture as the LG G Slate had two cameras on the back that were for this exact goal, but it wasn't a feature which really took off with consumers, so it also wasn't implemented in many devices.
