Bureau for registration of patents and trademarks U.S. has published a new patent application from Apple, which refers to a folding smartphone that will use a range of flexible components, including a OLED screen and iron structure.
this phone will be made of an alloy of Nickel and titanium, known for its elasticity and a unique shape memory effect. As other alternative materials can also be used in different flexible polymers.
In the new patent describes several examples where the phone is divided into upper and lower sections, each of which contains different components. For example, the upper part of the body may include video cameras, display controllers, sound system and light sensors, while the lower part will contain the microphones, the CPU and GPU, vibramotor and other necessary details.
Both parts are interconnected using one or more hinge mechanisms that will allow the two housing parts to move relative to each other. The upper and lower housing parts are connected using flexible printed circuit boards.
In the new patent also describes the design of the iPhone, which can be folded several times. Apple provides several options of folding, where the smartphone can bend, not only inside but also outside. For this part of the display is rolled inside the housing and rotated at the time of bending.
Let's hope that soon the mobile market will be unusual bendable smartphone from the "Apple" of the manufacturer.
