LG’s patent for a foldable phone shows Dual screens, batteries, headphone jacks

LG had filed a patent for a foldable phone that not only is equipped with two screens, but also comes with a pair of batteries and two headphone jacks. The patent was filed on September 28, 2016 and published on April 5, 2018, thanks to the World Intellectual Property Organization ().

The patent is titled “Mobile Terminal,” and both screens are curved allowing the side of the phone to display the date and time, temperature, and other notifications. The images that accompany the filing show hinges at the top and bottom of the device which allow the two individual screens to open and combine to form one large display. When the device is folded, the two screens can be used independently of each other.

In one mode, the two displays can be used to simulate a book as the user reads through one screen, turning to the second one as though he were going from page to page. When the device is partially folded, two people can watch different videos at the same time, with each using their own headphone jack to hear the audio in private. Even though the patent application was filed in 2016, the first screen features an under-display fingerprint scanner, and both housings feature their own digital camera and their own battery.
