Beijing: Chinese tech giant Huawei is reportedly working on a wild Mate foldable smartphone with a tri-fold display. A patent filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) revealed that the upcoming Huawei device is somewhat similar to the Samsung Z Flex shown last month, reports GizmoChina.
The 41-page published documentation shows blueprints for the device that show a total of seven screen parts. Four of them are great for viewing the area while the other three are to allow the screen to fold up.
The company is also offering a new foldable smartphone with a stylus and a sub-display. Huawei has filed the design patent with CNIPA (National Intellectual Property Administration of China) which has now been approved and published.
The foldable smartphone will come with a stylus and a sub-display right next to the main screen, which follows an inward folding design.
In addition, Huawei recently filed a patent for smartphones with fingerprint unlock technology on any screen. The company revealed that the new full-screen fingerprint technology will allow users to reply to text messages without having to unlock the phone.
