There were already reports suggesting that both LG and Samsung might be looking to release a new foldable screen smartphone this year but it looks like they won’t be alone.
A new patent from Microsoft suggest that Microsoft is also working on a foldable device of their own. In the patent, it is clear that Microsoft is trying to create a device can be folded into a smartphone or be folded out to become a tablet.
Of course, it does not say that this is the Surface Phone but most people already seems to believe that the next Microsoft smartphone could be the Surface Phone.
Since this is only a patent, there is no guarantee that we will be seeing this device in the market but at least we got to see what Microsoft is thinking about when it comes to the future of their smartphones.
