Microsoft's folding phone/tablet concept has three screens -- one in the hinge

A new patent application from the company has revealed that it might use three screens for the device, including a small display on the hinge.

A recently published Microsoft patent application shows off a tablet-like device that can fold inwardly or outwardly. What is notable is that Lenovo, Motorola's parent company, was the first company in the world to start working on foldable device prototypes. The patents suggested that while Microsoft has been out of the smartphone game for a long time, the Redmond-based tech giant is preparing something special for the device it will utilize to re-enter the smartphone market.

Peter Miles , the children's grandfather and Cockman's father-in-law, was also found dead on the property from suspected suicide. Seven people were found shot dead on a 30-acre hobby farm in Osmington , south of Perth, in the early hours of Friday morning.

The Surface Phone's foldable design might come with a few design advantages. The patent shows that the flexible screen get wrapped around a hinge and it comes with a cover that could be used to protect the display or to support the phone as a stand. It is possible that Motorola might have moved past it.

Other companies have been heard to also join the bandwagon like Lenovo with those flexible displays and devices, ZTE with the Axon Multy dual-screen phone, LG, Google, OPPO, and just recently, Huawei.As for Lenovo, there was that foldable folio tablet prototype shown off in a video a year ago. At present, when most smartphones have focused on giving large displays, increasing the screen size would make the device larger, while the foldable option tackles this problem by giving a larger screen at a compact size.

The device can transform into a tablet when extended. Notably, the patent was originally filed in September 2016.
