IBM Patents a Convertible Smartwatch


Foldable Devices are slowly coming to the tech market. In fact, many tech-giants are reportedly working on their future foldable devices. Today’s update is something new for tech-savvy people. As per the latest report, IBM has filed a new patent of a convertible smartwatch.

What’s new here is that this Smartwatch will come with a foldable screen that can be converted to Smartphone and Tablet. The same company had filed Foldable Smartwatch patent in 2016 which is just popped up on the Internet.

First reported by Let’s Go Digital, this new Smartwatch cum device will feature a total of eight different displays of 2*3 Inches of size. The size of these displays will be the same. In its standard Smartwatch phase, you will see only one display while the remaining displays will be folded up within the device.

Based on the information leaked online, we have got a couple of renders featuring the new concept of IBM with the future of foldable devices. We will get to see only one display on a Smartwatch while the remaining displays will be placed within the device making it look a little bulkier.

The displays will have no bezels so you can have a square big display when unfolded all the displays. When you add three more displays to the Smartwatch phase, the display will turn to 4*6 Inches. This will give you a new interface like a smartphone.

If you unfold all the eight displays together, the total size of the screen will be 8*12 Inch making it a tablet’s screen. So you can have a unique interface while unfolding all the screens which will be attached to each other.

The patent doesn’t reveal anything much about this future Smartwatch cum Smartphone cum Tablet device from IBM. All we know so far about this device is there will be eight displays on board. There is no further information about how these displays will reside with each other. We don’t even know whether they have started working on this concept or not.

We will update you with more information about this new and innovative Foldable device by IBM.
