The smartphone makers are doing their best to find new interesting features and technologies that can grab more customers. Probably, the latest direction they have taken is the game industry. There are already three game smartphones in face of the Black Shark, Nubia Red Magic, and ASUS ROG Game Phone. Plus, Huawei has launched its graphics acceleration technology in face of GPU Turbo. So what’s the next? Seems it should come to full-screen technology. But the VIVO NEX and OPPO Find X have reached almost the highest screen share. They might have to think of a new secret handshake. Foldable phones? Maybe! Like its closest rival of Samsung, LG has begun making foldable screens, reportedly.
Previously, the South Korean media has reported that Samsung is concentrating its efforts on the development of new folding screen devices. Moreover, it’s said they are finally put it into mass production. As for today, LG has applied for another patent of a folding screen smartphone that simply hints at its intentions on folding screen smartphones.
We have heard, LG applied for a patent to develop a foldable iPhone. There was another patent showing a book-like foldable design. So this is not surprising to see the next LG patent for a foldable screen. According to the patent application document, they are 55-fold and the hinges are connected. When you don’t need it, you can directly restore it by magnetic means.
In addition, in order to make this product more convenient for mass production, its internal components are not placed in the middle area but concentrated in the upper part and the lower part. The design is quite reasonable.
Previously, we have seen Xiaomi, Huawei, OPPO, and other manufacturer are quite interested in foldable screens. So if the rumors as LG has put it on a mass product are true, perhaps they have tested internally.
