Speaking of mobile phones, this year is going to see many devices. These smartphones are not just simple any other smartphones; they will have foldable displays.

How do LG foldable phone-cum-tablet work?
The phone has got two distinct parts merged on one above the other. When you are on the smartphone mode both the parts, sit on one behind the other with the smaller screen at the back. The regular smartphone is at the front that time. The rear camera is present at the back, where the smaller screen is. You can take selfies from the back camera as well. Once you open the device from the hinge, it transforms into a tablet.

Some are of the opinion that this is similar to the Nokia Patent but the Nokia device has the same dimension screens on both sides. It will almost look like a pocket mirror. The upcoming Surface Phone of Microsoft is also similar to a folding phone. According to patent leaks, the company is looking for smartphones that can open up like a tablet with larger display.
During the third quarter of this year, Samsung might also bring the foldable display smartphones. But those will have a folding/sliding capacity within the screens. The one LG is planning, is a lot different from that one. The LG folding phone will also work on a tablet. The Korean tech company is planning to make an all-out effort to sell out more than 100000 units in this year. Let’s see what is turns up in the next six months.
