We know that Samsung Galaxy Z Fold brings support with a smaller folding radius and stylus. However, there seem to be more official ways to provide small usability improvements, an improvement that LetsGoDigital discovered today. The Patent “Electronic Devices Including LEDs”, filed in March 2019, shows Samsung plans to add a series of indicators to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold’s hidden hinges.
In this patent, an LED light is inserted under the translucent cover, which can be combined into different colors for visual and decorative effects, and LED lights can be used for new notifications, information, calls not answered, etc. LetsGoDigital’s rendering is shown below.
