Foldable devices to be witnessed by users soon. To know more, looking at the trend of the introduction of the foldable devices, Microsoft has recently filed a patent for a tablet-like device which would have three displays altogether.
Also, as per the application of the patent, the purported tablet-like device can fold inwardly or outwardly. This would feature two main displays that would show how and when the device would open up. However, also as per reports, there would also be a tiny third display on the hinge as well.
However, given that it is a concept still at the patent stage, Microsoft might or might not choose to turn it into an actual product.
Folding phones and tablets are already a hot trend, with companies like Samsung, Apple, Huawei, and Motorola all said to be working on their own foldable devices. However, with ZTE already selling its foldable Axon M smartphone, it won’t be too long before users would see a number of manufacturers hopping on the foldable device brigade.
Now, Microsoft has previously applied for a hinge patent for a folding device. However, right now, it is not yet confirmed whether either of the patents would manifest in actual products. So, it seems like Microsoft is putting some thought into the concept. However, Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
