Many companies have already presented their options for folding smartphones, but so far only one model from the Chinese company Royole has gone on sale, and Samsung Galaxy Fold will soon be released. However, all these devices have a number of problems associated with the use of flexible screens. It seems that Microsoft has come up with a way to solve them by developing “liquid” loops.
One of the latest patents of the Redmond Corporation describes an unusual design of folding devices. Its peculiarity lies in filling the hinge with liquid or gas, which reduces the load on the folding display and prevents debris from getting inside the mechanism - two of the biggest problems with such devices. As a result, the wear of the gadget during opening and closing is markedly reduced.
The network has long been rumored that Microsoft is developing a foldable smartphone or tablet with a flexible screen. The existence of the device was even confirmed by company leaders, but so far there is no reliable information about it. There is a hope that this mysterious gadget will be shown at the upcoming presentation.
