Microsoft Foldable Surface Phone Patent
Unlike the previous patent which showcased two separate panels fold inwards, this patent shows one flexible screen. This flexible screen will show hinge assembly and “deployable bridge support.”
The deployable bridge support will prevent the flexible screen from getting softer when fully open. The flexible screen will make it easier to use in tablet mode. Like Samsung foldable device, no line will separate two individual displays so that users can easily write on with a stylus. The best thing is that people using the device will not be annoyed by a physical line in between the images or text they are ready.
Many tech giants, Samsung, LG, and Huawei are currently working on foldable devices. Samsung’s foldable Galaxy X concept is in news, but Samsung is not the only company to launch devices with foldable screens that can switch between phone and tablet modes with ease. ZTE has already revealed such a concept.
