Dutch technology blog LetsGoDigital has just unveiled a new patent for ZTE’s folding screen, which, unlike the flat-screen-to-plate Samsung Galaxy Fold, has a dual-camera-and-flip-style flexible screen. In order to stand out from the crowd of competitors, mobile phone manufacturers in the folding screen smart phone design can be said to be painstaking. For example, after the tablet-based Huawei Mate X and Samsung Galaxy Fold, we saw the flip-flop Moto Razr (2019) and the Galaxy Z Flip.
In fact, as early as March 2019,media have already introduced the concept machine using the conventional design of ZTE folding screen. In mid-2019, the company filed a patent for the design of the flip-top folding screen to the State Intellectual Property Office, but it was not announced until May 29, 2020.
The application file contains 16 product icons for the as-yet-unreleased ZTE folding screen smart machine, which shows that it can display a large display area when it is expanded. It also has a much thinner frame compared to the Moto Razr (2019) and the Galaxy Z Flip.
The new device looks quite compact when folding. After flipping a small portion of the screen area to the back, it can also be used with a dual-camera-flash. While enjoying a unique selfie experience, you can also save on the cost of repeated stacking of front-mounted camera sensors.
The top and bottom of the patented device have exactly the same thickness, but the head area is slightly thicker due to the board layout and mechanical fabric. This may seem a little unbalanced when placed flat on the desktop.
The head is equipped with a power / volume-adjusted body button on both sides of the head and the USB-C connector is moved to the top, otherwise there will be a conflict when the folding is held. It remains to be seen when it will go on sale and whether it will win over Axon M to win over more consumers.
