May 13,2018;

The folding phones and tablets will be the next big thing in domain of technology, with manufacturers such as Apple, Samsung, and Huawei working on their own foldable handsets.

Now, Companies like Motorola and Microsoft also appear to be willing to jump on the bandwagon.

Lenovo-owned Motorola is said to be working on a phone that only comes with a flexible display, but also with a wireless charging cover.

Meanwhile, Microsoft is now rumoured to be developing an all-new piece of hardware that would be a phone with a foldable form factor.

A new patent application from the company has revealed that it might use three screens for the device, including a small display on the hinge.

World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has approved a Motorola patent for a folding smartphone design. As per the design, there is a wide rectangular display that can be folded to give a smartphone-like experience, while unfolding it will make the device work like a tablet. The patent shows that the flexible screen get wrapped around a hinge and it comes with a cover that could be used to protect the display or to support the phone as a stand. The cover may also function as a wireless charger.

Motorola foldable smartphone patent was first filed in September 2016, indicating that company has been toying with the idea for two years now. It is possible that Motorola might have moved past it. However, if the company is actually still working on the phone, the key feature that will set it apart from other manufacturer’s foldable phone patents will be the case cover with wireless charging support.

Microsoft had filed for the patent on November 9, 2016. But there is no clarity on whether patents will manifest in actual products, though Microsoft at least appears to be putting some thought into the concept.
