LG patents foldable phone


It seems LG, Samsung, and Microsoft are racing towards #foldageddon to put out a smartphone-cum-foldable tablet.

LG’s patent application was picked up by GSMARENA and it strengthens the rumours that Microsoft will also use an LG screen in its hotly anticipated, but as yet unconfirmed, foldable SurfacePhone.

Samsung’s Galaxy X/X1 codenamed Project Valley folds on the short edge (that would allow a much smaller phone, albeit thicker) to fold open to a phablet.

Whatever happens, it seems the era of the “glass slab” may be relegated to the lower end of the market. LG has recently “poured on” the innovation with its new V20 uber-flagship, the impending launch of the G6 flagship and a new mid-range designed to take on the emerging Chinese makers that are seeking world dominance.
