The current trend of smart phones is full screen, but many smart phone makers who have been prepared for rainy days have been studying the feasibility of folding screen phones. At the moment, we have seen many patent photos of folding phones exposed. In addition to Samsung, another LG from South Korea, which has just dropped out of the Chinese market, also exposes a patent for a folding screen phone.
LG electronics applied for patents at the end of 2014 at the end of 2014 until the patent was approved in November 2017, involving the design of a folding smart phone. The current foldable mobile phone has several common points, one is having multiple screens. The other is the folding design.
First, the LG exposure patent chart shows that the mobile phone is folded and the three screens can be folded together to be as portable as the size of a conventional cell phone. In addition, the screen is not moving in the middle, and the two flexible screens can fold in different directions. Three screens can display content at the same time, play or picture or browse the web online. You can also use a screen as the main display page, and move the skill icons or operations to the other two screen operations, very flexible.
LG has also developed a new manipulation gesture for the new machine. Users can move the content displayed on one screen to another screen, or display different application contents separately in multi task windows.
However, due to the folding screen, in many cases, the screen is automatically shut down automatically. Therefore, how to use the sensor to know people's use is a difficulty that this product needs to overcome.
Finally, the patent points out that this display technology can be used not only for collapsible smart phones, but also for notebook computers, personal computers, tablet computers, portable video players and related electronic devices.
In addition, although the patent has been applied, but now LG mobile business department is facing a situation of unfavorable revenue, so such a patent product will not soon meet with consumers.
