The outward hinge will also act as part of the screen, unlike other phones.

BBK corporation don't just steal your privacy and empty account, they became patent trolls. Absolutely obvious idea with tons of concept for decades but they patented it. Nice.

I like the ZTEs approach with two side by side displays rather than an actually bending screen. They just need to figure out how to eliminate edges/bezels between the two screens when the phone is unfolded.

As first impression, etc. It seems quite interesting/ promising. But eventually we'll see...

Surface Phone will be the landmark in foldable smartphone category...Fingers cross

The concept looks great.
I fear the most if it will be very scratch-prone...

To my knowledge it is always a trade of with materials between elasticity and hardness.
And to bend it obviously needs to be elastic, hence I expect the surface to be relatively soft, so it might need a pouch of some kind.

For the form factor it would be better if I were three not two parts. As this would allow it to be around 16:9 both folded and unfolded. Sure it would be thicker, but still more pocketable, and better for one handed operation in phone-mode.

Everybody is patenting the foldable display technology yet nobody is releasing any device that has such a feature. It's just a race for obtaining as many patents as possible.
