Not just Samsung, Microsoft is also planning a tri-fold smartphone
Microsoft recently unveiled a new Surface device that will feature four camera sensors below the display.
San Francisco: A day after reports that Samsung is working on tri-fold phones, reports now indicate that US tech giant Microsoft is also planning to release a “multi-panel device” with a tri-fold design.
Microsoft’s patent has been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and shows a sketch of a device with two hinges that opens to reveal a massive screen made up of three separate sections, reports GSMArena.
Once folded, the device can serve as a traditional smartphone.
Microsoft recently unveiled a new Surface device that will feature four camera sensors below the display, with the company logo displayed when those cameras are not in use.
The four cameras in question will be positioned in the same way as the logo, each camera having its color filter.
These four sensors will be placed under the screen of the device and are intended for mobile computing devices, such as a Microsoft Surface device.
Additionally, cameras can display a color icon when the sensor is not in use to display the company logo on the front. Thus, the device will display the logo by default and switch to the camera when the shutter is activated.
“Triple Foldable Galaxy Smartphone”
As of Tuesday, some reports claimed that Samsung was working on a new tri-foldable Galaxy smartphone.
According to LetsGoDigital, Samsung has filed a vast patent with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) which details its new foldable smartphone.
The handset should have three separate screens that can unfold to become a single large transparent screen. The device will also feature two hinges, one folding inward while the other folding outward to form the “Z” shape.
In addition, the smartphone would arrive with S Pen support, under the display camera, an HDMI connector, etc.
