Motorola has been long speculated to work on a foldable device. Now, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) has published a new patent. The patent reveals that the company is trying its best to interact with both sides of a folding smartphone or tablet hybrid.
Since many of the companies have been planning for foldable devices much ahead of Motorola, it seems that the company is trying to experiment with new ways to interact with the device instead of blatantly following other OEMs. Motorola’s approach is already far-beyond beyond how other OEMs have been executing foldable smartphones.
The concept of the revealed patent further shows the built-in camera and sensors to recognize when the device is kept folded over. This means that two apps can be running simultaneously while processing power and interactivity are active.
Apart from the details mentioned above, there isn’t much information available regarding the new lineup, and it is also hard to assume this early whether the latest patent will be used for its design elements or not. As for the pricing, Motorola is expected to launch the device at a price of $1,500, which is way too high for consumers to shell out for a smartphone.
On another note, reports also suggest that the famous Motorola RAZR is coming back. The famed Motorola RAZR could be making a comeback in the smartphone market at a similar price of $1,500 with a foldable display. The upcoming Motorola RAZR may launch by the end of February 2019, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
