Huawei has patented a phone with a foldable display

Peter, 29 March 2018

Huawei has worked hard to stay at the forefront of camera innovation, but it hasn’t forgotten about displays. The company has patented a foldable smartphone that opens and closes like a book.

The patent was filed with WIPO on September 19 last year and published today. The mechanism looks similar to the Microsoft Surface Book, but seems to leave a much smaller gap.

The display – a single panel, rather than two like the Axon M – and should be tablet-sized when fully open. The patent doesn’t address how the device will be used when it’s closed. There needs to be some way to check notifications – something from an LED to an extra display.
