LG foldable phone patent has some interesting twists

Bezel-less screens, notches, and elevating cameras have practically stolen the market spotlight from the foldable phone. If things happen according to leaks, however, the tables could be turned before the year ends. Almost anyone and everyone has a foldable phone concept from Samsung to Apple to Huawei. Unsurprisingly, LG isn’t far behind. But while the patent for this LG foldable phone bears some resemblance to, say, Samsung’s, it definitely has a few differences that make it both interesting and odd.

Foldable phones: a necessary first step that’s doomed to fail

Much like the mythical Microsoft Surface Phone, the Samsung foldable phone is believed to finally appear, year after year. It might finally happen in 2018, with a commercial launch in 2019. But before then, we will most likely be treated to a parade of other foldable phones from other companies, both in concept and in the market. But are foldable phones really that necessary? For everyday consumers? Hardly. But for the future of computing? It’s that crucial step we can’t actually skip.

A patent filed by LG shows a folding phone concept in which the handset forms a tablet when unfolded. According to the patent's details, this model -- should it ever be put into production -- wouldn't feature two separate displays like the ZTE Axon M, but rather a single flexible display that can be folded in half. The result is a smartphone that functions as a tablet.

LG Display unveils 65-inch rollable 4K OLED TV

It was only a few years ago that LG Display wowed us with an 18-inch OLED screen that could bend and be rolled up like paper. Now the company is back at CES 2018 this year with an even more impressive version: a 65-inch OLED TV with the same rollable function and a 4K resolution.

Samsung’s folding displays fix the one big problem

Folding displays are a mainstay of science fiction, and now Samsung is readying the tech to make gadgets with screens that bend or roll. The company has been working on flexible OLED for some years now, one of several manufacturers hoping to solve the consumer conundrum of people who want increasingly large displays in smaller and smaller form-factors. Problem is, it's not just about having a panel you can bend.

Apple's future in foldable displays on devices of all sorts hit the rumor fan this week as a patent for said tech passed through the USPTO.

LG’s flexible OLED lamps aim to make lightbulbs obsolete

Next year LG will begin selling flexible OLED lamps to the general public. These are, to put it simply, panels of light as flexible as a piece of paper. While LG's been working on and with these types of lamps and lighting for several years, sources suggest that consumer-aimed flexible OLED lamps may be launched for consumers next year. This is the dawn of the curved light - and almost certainly the precursor to the fully flexible full room smart lighting system as an everyday occurrence.

Lenovo teases bendable, voice-controlled laptop concept

Although Lenovo, even after its Motorola acquisition, is finding difficulty securing a foothold in the mobile market, it remains the world's top PC vendor, especially when it comes to laptops. That has allowed it to venture off into a few experiments, like the more or less successful YOGA line or the so-so Yoga Book and its Halo Keyboard. At its Lenovo Transform event in New York, Lenovo revealed one of its possible future experiments, a laptop that can be folded, rolled, and bended, and doesn't have a trackpad. Lenovo calls it the "Future of Personalized Computing".

Samsung has a stretchable display it will show off soon

Forget foldable or even rollable displays. Stretchable screens are the future! OK, that might be a bit of a stretch, but this type of display moves us closer to the holy grail of deformable devices. Unsurprisingly, Samsung says it has something like that and it will be giving the world a sneak peek later this week. Of course, it has had flexible and foldable screens for quite a while now. Creating a consumer device out of those, however, is a different story.

Samsung could begin shipping foldable displays in 2019

The promise of smartphones and tablets with foldable displays is one that's been around for a while, but so far, we haven't really seen these displays take center stage.
