The patent application was first spotted by LetsGoDigital, which has also posted 3D renders of ZTE's upcoming phone based on the images available with the patent application.
Things get interesting when the phone is unfolded. That would certainly please would-be big-screen smartphone buyers, who are turned off by the sizable slabs of the current crop of large handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S10+ and others. A week later, we have a leak that lists several of the features Motorola has developed for foldable phones. However whereas Samsung is pushing the idea of its external display as doing everything a regular Android phone could, Motorola's will apparently be more limited. Only a couple of apps will be allowed to access the second display like Moto Display, Moto Actions and Moto Camera.
Motorola foldable RAZR Smartphone Likely to Boast an Impressive
The phone's interior display, which can be used to trigger the camera and display up to six "Quick Settings" tiles, will also double as a trackpad that can be used to navigate web pages in Google Chrome, according to the report. Specifically, while browsing through webpages or using apps such as Twitter, users should be able to run their finger over the second display to scroll.
In the case of Moto Display, it's claimed that the company is now testing a way in which users will be able to view push notifications via the secondary display. It is hardly surprising that Motorola is jumping on the foldable, dual-screen phone bandwagon. For the camera, it'll interact with the primary display: tapping that will take a photo, while swiping it will zoom.
Interestingly, at least one of the phones will make use of the same folding mechanism that the Huawei Mate X will use, meaning that it will fold closed with the display on the outside.
Motorola could, of course, change strategy depending on how its ongoing Voyager testing pans out.
