Sony Patents a Foldable Smartphone Featuring Transparent Displays
In old times, Sony led the market when it came to displays. In an attempt to make a comeback when it comes to mobile displays, Sony might be rolling out a transparent foldable phone.
It seems that the upcoming year will be rather exciting when it comes to new smartphone technology such as foldable screens. A majority of major smartphone producers like Apple, Huawei, LG, Samsung, Motorola, etc., are gearing up to roll out the foldable smartphones in the coming time.
All the major names in the smartphone industry are attempting to produce a folding smartphone to launch in the coming year. Now, Sony has also joined the club.
As per the sources, Sony too wishes to launch its own folding phone in the year 2019. This much-anticipated folding device will be unusual and distinct from all the other smartphones by other companies.
As it has been reported, the company had filed for a patent in the month of May. However, the patent got published just last month.
As per the patent, the smartphones will consist of two displays – one in the front and the other in the back. Users will be able to set the screens to work in six distinct modes. There are three modes for the front display and three for the back. Essentially, users can set the mode to transparent, semi-transparent and also non-transparent.
Consumers will be able to set either of the two displays to the transparent mode while placing the second one in the non-transparent mode.
The patent further revealed an astounding mode called roll-up screen. This idea has been noticed in earlier patents. Presently, there is no indication that the company will release the phone in 2019. But, one can’t count out that Sony will offer the smartphone as an innovation edge over its rivals. Stay tuned with TechnoCodex for more updates.
