It’s always interesting to browse pending patents and guess what gadgets will come from them. Microsoft recently filed patents for a foldable display, but the company has yet to announce what it will use these for.
Aside from the Surface tablet, the company hasn’t had much luck with mobile devices recently. Headlines about the company’s mobile devices were scarce until just a few months ago.
Is Microsoft Planning a Foldable Device?
Such designs could produce a flat tablet, one that functions more like a notebook or a screen more similar to a smartphone.
The tech giant isn’t the only company working on screen technology. Similar parents have existed since the early 2000s. LG may also have something similar in the works.
