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.

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.
