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.

Tesla's Autopilot system uses cameras, radar and computers to keep speed, change lanes and automatically stop vehicles. The crash comes as federal safety agencies investigate the performance of Tesla's semi-autonomous driving system.

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.

"With the new technology, especially foldable screens, I think you will see more and more innovation on our smartphone design". The third configuration will be where the screen could be propped up nearly like it had a kickstand, ideal for watching videos. Interestingly, it also includes a third display at the hinge. The device can transform into a tablet when extended. Notably, the patent was originally filed in September 2016.

There is no mention yet when Lenovo-Motorola will reveal a working foldable phone. Microsoft has one idea for the concept.
