There doesn't appear to be any detail in the patent about a possible name for this device or when it might make a debut, but with the patent having been granted and published recently it's entirely possible that Lenovo and Motorola Mobility are advancing the development on this device. What is notable is that Lenovo, Motorola's parent company, was the first company in the world to start working on foldable device prototypes.

ZTE uses two screens in its folding Axon M phone, but how about a folding device that uses three? The patent hints a similar design of a foldable smartphone, a concept shown by Lenovo couple of years ago. The rumor assumes importance with the approval of a foldable smartphone by WIPO on March 13, 2018. Microsoft's patent application was originally filed on November 9th, 2016 and is titled "Device having a screen region on a hinge coupled with other screen regions".

If rumors are to be believed, Motorola is gearing up to launch a foldable smartphone. Much of the Surface line's pedigree, after all, lies in the way the devices integrate features like hinges into their overall design. This time, a new patent has emerged adding something extra to the handset, in the form of a third display located in the most unlikely place the market has seen so far. The third configuration will be where the screen could be propped up nearly like it had a kickstand, ideal for watching videos. Then, based on the position of the hinge (and, therefore, of the two main displays), the third display region would display relevant information, which could relate directly to either - or both - of the larger displays. The device can transform into a tablet when extended.

Microsoft intends to join two screens producing one image which could be as a phone, tablet as a well as a laptop that will enable rotation of up to 360 degrees. There have been reports about Apple working on a foldable smartphone as well.

Presently Microsoft has filed four patents for foldable smartphones implementing Windows 10 that would be groundbreaking and state-of-the-art.
