Huaweia unique futuristic rolled up his sleeves for the smart phone. A new patent has been acquired that features a design we’ve never seen before. The device in the documents reveals a flexible rotating display panel technology.
The patent was filed with the State Intellectual Property Office of China and was titled “flexible screen support mechanism and rollable electronic equipment”. The documents bore the patent number CN114439843A (Via ITHome). Looking at this document, the patent describes an electronic device with a display technology placed under the screen. The patent disclosure also added that “it will have simple structure, small storage space, and can be applied to portable devices.”
Huawei will breathe new life into the foldable industry
The structure that supports the screen of the device, especially observed in patent sketches, also includes a rotating part. The device will come with a rotating shaft mechanism covered with a protective sheath on both sides. However, it is unclear whether the rotation itself is automatic or manual. Meanwhile, the support mechanism will have various support-like structures that enable the foldable screen.
As of now, it is unclear whether this patented device is actually a smartphone. It’s quite possible that the product is a portable display meant to be carried with a low-power chipset for basic UI functions paired with a small amount of storage. It is worth remembering that this is still a patent and it is not certain whether the Chinese technology giant is actually working on such a product.
