Lenovo Foldable Phone: Everything You Need To Know

With the launch of Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, more and more mobile phone manufacturers are entering the foldable mobile phone market. In September last year, Lenovo submitted a patent for a foldable mobile phone with a flexible hinge to the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO), which was recently included in the global design database. 

Based on a newly disclosed patent, it seems that Lenovo prefers a clamshell design that avoids the vertical book-like fold we’ve seen in models like the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Specifically, what Lenovo appears to be pondering design-wise is a clamshell design where the bottom portion of the phone curls up when closed.
