Earlier we have reported that LG and Samsung are working on releasing Foldable Smartphones by end of 2017. Now we get the news that the Redmond Giant has filed a patent for a foldable phone to tablet mobile device.

The new patent applied by Microsoft describes a foldable tablet supported by a flexible hinge. An Average consumer generally buys a mobile device to make phone calls, text and so on with a relatively small display. For users who would like to access emails and internet generally plan to buy a tablet.

Now Microsoft to get the customers who could have access to phone calls and text along with browsing internet and access to emails in One device, has now patented a 2 in 1 foldable device which will act both as a smartphone and a tablet.


Now that Microsoft has patented the 2 in 1 foldable device, we would need to wait and see if the company will be able to launch the device by end of this year along with its competitors LG and Samsung who also plan to launch their fold-able devices this year.
