2018 is going to be the year of folding smartphones. Big technology companies like Samsung, Huawei, and Microsoft are all gearing up for the folding smartphone, which is expected to be introduced by the end of this year or early 2019. Now LG has joined the club of folding smartphones with its next flagship that will give tough competition to the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy X.
According to a new report by The Verge, the upcoming device has a unique folding design, making it compact even when folded. LG has already obtained a patent from the World Intellectual Property Organization for its upcoming smartphone. The patent describes the device’s unique design, which is kept under secret doors by LG. There is no further official information regarding this folding smartphone, but we can take a small view of the exclusive design through images published online.
The images refer that the new LG smartphone with a folded design is equipped with an AMOLED display that can bend 360 degrees. This phone will fold outwards so that the user may use it even while it is folded. This feature is very important as far as telephone conversations are concerned because a smartphone with such a snug body is much more convenient to hold in your hand.
There is no concrete information about the name and detailed features of the new LG smartphone. As we are waiting for some more official statements regarding the new phone from insider sources, we hope the device to hit the market this year.
