There is information about its own version of a multifunctional convertible smartphone equipped with a flexible display, patented by Intel.

The device data is published on the website of the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPRIS). On the basis of patent documentation, renders were created, which were presented by the LetsGoDigital resource.

Judging by the images, the smartphone will receive a display wrapper. In fact, the display will be the front panel, the right side and the entire rear panel of the case.

By deploying a flexible screen, users will be able to turn the device into a tablet computer. At the same time, it will be possible to display on two halves of the panel, for example, windows of two applications or one window for viewing videos and games.

Thanks to this display design, the device will almost completely lack frames on all sides. Unfortunately, it is not yet clear how the camera system will be organized.

It is worth noting that while the Intel patent applies only to the design of the smartphone-transformer. Whether such devices will be created in the future for the commercial market is not clear.
