Apple is likely experimenting with several foldable phone designs. Apple has been said to be working on a book-like foldable phone as well as a clamshell foldable phone, but now we have evidence of another design.
According to a recently discovered Apple patent, the business is working on a split-screen foldable device akin to the Microsoft Surface Duo. Instead of a single foldable screen, the phone will have two separate screens connected together by a hinge.
According to the patent, even though the panels are split, the display will stretch across both displays once the device is opened. However, different speakers in different locations can be used to play different audio channels of an audio track. All of the other gear, such as the camera arrangement and the diversity of sensors onboard, can be used in conjunction with one another.
The patent does not specify the type of hinge that will be used, although it will most likely be comparable to the Surface Duo. Magnets will be utilised to seal the device and to use it in various positions. The phone, like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, may be utilised in a variety of folding orientations.
This Apple foldable might also serve as a notebook with a virtual keyboard.
Because it is simply a design patent, there is no certainty that it will become a retail gadget, so take this with a grain of salt.
