LG is known to work on a phone with a foldable display. Even in 2018, the CEO of the company confirmed this. However, even though the South Korean technology giant has never had a folding screen phone attack, the patent images that have emerged have enabled us to learn about LG’s folding screen phone work.
Details of the patent obtained in May 2019 have been announced recently. Accordingly, LG; Huawei is working on the design of a Mate X-like smartphone. The patent visuals also resemble Oppo’s foldable phone, which was shown prototype earlier this year.
The visuals are similar to the Huawei Mate X, because we are greeted by a design with a ribbon that folds out and accommodates a quad camera installation . Although we are familiar with the design of the Huawei Mate X, which is already on the market, there are some design differences.
Unlike the Huawei Mate X, the camera system of the foldable phone on which LG works is located on the front . In this way, there is no need to fold the phone for self-timer. However, you have to fold the phone in order to take a selfie in the Huawei Mate X, with the camera set up in the back.
Half of the phone, which has a slim design, consists of only a screen, while the other half includes hardware components along with the display. This is slightly different in the Huawei Mate X. The Huawei Mate X has a foldable display on both sides.
If we take a look at the other design details of the patent phone; At the top we are greeted by the power button, speaker and microphone, and under the phone is a round hole, which is estimated to be a speaker, microphone, USB Type-C jack and 3.5 mm headphone jack.
LG’s announcement of a foldable display phone next year is certain. However, the design of this phone is not known. As in the above patent, we can see a design while we can see another phone. It is important to remember that the patent obtained at this point is not a final product ;
