LG Patented A New Dual-Screen Phone Case, Looks Like Huawei Mate X

This new folding design from LG works similarly to the LG V50 ThinQ and LG G8x ThinQ that came with extra DualScreen accessory.

LG recently filed a patent showing a new dual-screen smartphone design. With this all-new design, LG's future smartphones will be able to expand the screen size very easily. The new invention was filed by the company to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and shared by LetsGoDigital.

In normal mode, the folding screen smartphone will have the same size as the Huawei Mate X, while in fully open mode, users will have a second screen case connected to the side of the device, turning it into a tablet. The second secondary screen can also be removed and attached to the cover of the machine.

Judging from the image depicted in the patent, LG's new smartphone design can also be folded like the Galaxy Fold due to the hinge at the top and bottom edges. Therefore, in addition to folding and opening like Galaxy Fold, LG's folding screen smartphone can even expand the screen even more through a port connected to the second secondary display attached on the back.

Of course, if this design is used by LG in the future, it is likely that the second secondary screen will be sold by LG as an accessory and protective case, like earlier this year, LG also sold a DualScreen accessory for the LG V50 ThinQ and LG G8x ThinQ. But, in the end, it turns out to be unsuccessful and fails to capture users’ attention.

If you are interested in a smartphone with dual displays, the South Korean brand has brought its LG G8x ThinQ to India. Even though this phone doesn't have a second screen included, the brand does offer a DualScreen accessory along with the phone that can work as an additional display. The LG G8X ThinQ already went on sales via offline stores across the country for a price of Rs. 49,999 and it ships with the DualScreen accessory.
