Apple Partners With LG Display For A Foldable IPhone: Report

Foldable smartphones could be the next big thing in the tech world. Manufacturers such as Samsung, Apple, Huawei and LG have been reportedly working on a foldable smartphone. Now, Motorola seems to be joining the bandwagon.

A Dutch site LetsGoDigital claims that the company is working on a foldable device. The design includes a rectangular screen that can be folded like a phone or unfolded to work like a tablet.

The report asserts that the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) has now approved Motorola's patent for a folding phone design. The patent was filed in September 2016, suggesting that Motorola has been toying with the idea for two years now.

“No surprise that Motorola apparently wants in and has actually been scheming for years. A recently awarded patent reveals its idea for a smartphone that folds out into a tablet, pretty much like other foldable phone patents out there,” SlashGear reported.

“What makes this one a bit more interesting, however, is not the phone itself but the addition of a case cover that actually adds some value to the device,” the report added.

But since it’s a patent, one doesn't know if the company will ever actually bring this to market.
