As soon as we have become accustomed to Frameless handset concepts, as smartphone manufacturers spawned a new trend - smartphone with folding display. At first it was ZTE Axon M, then 2 secret Samsung Galaxy models, now that's it LG looms on horizon smartphone clamshell.
AT patent LG 2 concepts are described. AT In the first case, the company draws a clamshell, which has 2 internal screens in unfolded into one large screen. At the same time, The front side of the closed smartphone shows another display that shows the time. 3 screens for one smartphone - this is somehow too much, so it is likely that this will be some kind of E-link display as in YotaPhone.
In The second case is very similar - smartphone so folds in half (the bend line runs right in the middle of the screen), but an additional display with the front side of the screen is made smarter. When the smarfon folds, then the outer cover slides slightly side, baring the screen. Almost like that short blanket, which is forever not enough to cover long legs. The screen displays the the same time, date and key notifications, as at the first case. But he is only visible in closed state.
