LG patents a folding smartphone

LG logoA patent that shows a folding smartphone has appeared at the website of the World Intellectual Property Organization, filed last year by LG Electronics.

There is no description of the patent, other some schemes showing a mobile phone with a flexible display which can be folded in half.

The patent, which was filed by LG in July 2017, shows two versions of the potential phone.

The first model is a foldable phone that features a camera component on the back panel. When folded, the device can display information like the time on the front screen.

The second design is similar, except when the phone is folded, its rear cover is pushed to one side revealing a transparent section on the front right-hand side. That sidebar section could be used to display the time and notifications.

There's no doubt that LG will eventually release a device like this in the future.

Samsung has previously indicated it wants to release a bendable Galaxy Note this year, but it is not yet clear whether this will happen.
