Yahoo! News (Online) featured an article speculating that LG could follow Samsung and release a foldable phone in 2017. The article describes a potential design that would have the phone flip vertically to offer users a landscape view with a touch screen located on both the front and back of the phone.
It states, “In fact, a separate LG patent shows just such a design — another proposal for a foldable phone shows the flip happening on the vertical edge, which means that when it’s unfolded, you’re greeted with what looks like a tablet in landscape mode. The device would have a touchscreen on both the front and the back, while the hinge could serve as a music controller or notification bar. And of course, there would be a camera, flash, and fingerprint scanner.”
