Samsung clamshell phones are currently based on landscape and portrait design. However, there have been several reports in recent months about the possibility of Samsung making a clamshell phone with two hinges, and now the company has just filed a new patent in this regard.
The mechanism of a two-hinged clamshell phone is illustrated, which is why it is divided into three parts. In the main part of the screen, a fingerprint sensor is embedded under the screen, and when the phone is fully opened, we will practically encounter a small tablet. The back panel of the phone has a triple camera and a USB port is used to charge and transfer data.
This patent also mentions how to install different parts in different parts of this phone. According to the published plan, the main parts will be installed in the initial and final parts, and the middle part will be used more to increase the strength, and there are no important parts in this part. The site LetsGoDigital, which published this patent, also provided renderings based on the published design that you can view.
As we said, this is not the first time that Samsung has reported on a dual-hinged clamshell phone. A few months ago, another Samsung patent was released that showed the design details of such a clamshell phone, and some time later, Samsung unveiled a prototype of such a product at a technology show.
In this new patent, details. A lot has been said, but in 2022 we should not expect the introduction of this type of clamshell phone. On the other hand, the registration of various patents does not necessarily mean the implementation of the ideas presented. However, apart from Samsung, the Chinese company TCL has been working on the development of a dual-hinged clamshell phone for the past few years, so sooner or later we will encounter such handsets.
