Foldable LG Device has Up to Three Screen Segments

LG patents foldable displays.

Why stop at a folding screen with two segments? LG Electronics patents a foldable displays that fold two time with three screen segments. Unfolded, such a device would provide a screen that is three times as large as the device itself.

LG has filed the patent with WIPO already at the end of 2014. It took until November 2017 before the patent was approved and spotted by Dutch LetsGoDigital.

Besides a two-display concept, a series of variants with three screens are described. One concept shows the main screen (with camera and home button) in the middle, other illustrations show the main screen on the left or right side of the device. This also means there are different ways of folding the device. The above illustrations give a good impression of the possibilities in this respect.

The folding screen can be three regular displays but it can also be two displays of which one large flexible display. The flexible display has the size of two screens.

Furthermore, the patent describes an operating method for the foldable display device. When the phone is completely unfolded, the three screens can be used as one very big screen.

Samsung has so far made more headlines with a folding smartphone known as the Galaxy X, announced for 2019.
