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 hasnt 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.
