According to foreign media reports, Microsoft applied for a new patent and highlighted a new form factor.
In the patent application, Microsoft announced this new form, which uses a flexible display to improve foldability and productivity.
Microsoft said that this flexible patented technology is suitable for handheld devices, notebook computers, wearable devices and other consumer electronics products.
At present, some patent drawings have been exposed. According to various rumors, Microsoft is developing a dual-screen Surface device, codenamed Andromeda.
It is understood that Microsoft applied for a patent called "Flexible Display of Mobile Connected Body" at the end of 2017 and was released by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in March 2018.
Most patent applications are directed to dual-screen devices, and it is known from the patent drawings that the two displays are hinged together. This patent is intended to introduce a bendable technique that also has a layer that includes a hinge, but it is not visible.
In the background section of the patent application, Microsoft elaborated on the technology of flexible multilayer electronic devices. Microsoft said the patent details a flexible device that includes a flexible display "stack."
It is worth noting that patented equipment should not become a real product. According to rumors, Microsoft is developing a device that can transform the complete experience of Windows 10 into a foldable form factor.This article was written by the author of the cutting-edge technology.
