Unfortunately, due to lack of technical skills, the manufacturer has delayed the launch time scheduled for June to September to complete some additional quality tests.
Even so, the two companies are actively preparing for the development of the new folding screen smartphone.
For example, last week, LetsGoDigital exposed Samsung’s “Yileo”Mobile phoneScreen patents and OPPO folding screen phones with pop-up cameras.
But now, LetsGoDigital is pleasantly surprised to discover thatHuaweiA new patent for folding equipment other than Mate X was applied.
It is reported that last summer, the Netherlands Rijswijk represented Huawei's patent application work in the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) then officially granted Huawei the patent entitled “Foldable Mobile Device” on May 31, 2019.
As can be seen from the illustrations, Huawei has depicted three forms. (1) A thicker screen border can be seen on the top and bottom of the device, with a camera, sensor, and physical Home button.
(2) There is a certain forehead at the top to accommodate the front camera and the necessary sensors. (3) The double-folded full-screen without borders extends from the front face to the back and supports multiple modes of use.
In addition to these differences, the three designs have power buttons on the top of the fuselage and ports for charging/output transmission on the bottom. When folded, the device is quite compact, comparable to a normal smartphone.
This design not only elegantly creates a larger screen area, but also provides better scratch protection for the main screen. As for the fixing mechanism, it is realized by means of a magnet.
The unit is equipped with two sets of hinges that are mounted on either side of the housing. When folded, the hinge provides additional support for the flexible screen. Once folded, the screen fits nicely over the outer casing.
Based on this, users can implement multiple usage modes. For example, the fully extended tablet mode, the laptop-like desktop mode, and the most basic mobile phone mode.
In other words, the user can decide whether to have each part of the screen display different content, or to merge and display a complete interface. In addition, Huawei equipped this folding screen smart machine with a unique camera.
The first two models are located on the upper bezel and the third are visually invisible, suggesting that they are embedded in the bottom of the screen. Of course, there is still a long way to go before actually commercializing.
