Following Samsung, LG patented its own smartphone with a flexible display. Due to the patent application it is possible to get an idea of what a similar solution is
At first glance, the device looks like an ordinary smartphone with thin frames, only more angular than we used to see. Judging by the published image, the device from LG can be folded in half with the help of hinged mechanisms, thus becoming half as large. In addition, this design will help better protect your phone from mechanical damage.
The screen will be built in two magnets, which will not allow the smartphone to open accidentally. Also in the device will be provided two antennas, two microphones, two speakers, which, apparently, will be located directly below the display. A feature of the future of the smartphone from LG may be the fact that the photo can be made even in the folded state, thanks to the location of the camera on the rear panel.
When LG will release a similar smartphone is not yet clear. But the competition is already quite large – devices with flexible screens are already being prepared by Samsung, Huawei and Motorola.
