The images of the patented smartphone also got out which shows a lot about the foldable smartphone. It shows two individual smartphones connected with a hinge which can be turned into one large display when opened completely. The two displays can also be used to simulate book reading which user can turn pages just like in a book. Then the smartphone is folded in a tent mode, it can play different videos on each display which two people can enjoy by using each of the two headphone ports.

The two smartphones connected with the hinge has their own battery which powers the two displays separately. Both of the smartphone parts come with their own camera and own separate battery.

ZTE has already created a smartphone called Axon M which comes with a foldable design but it only comes with one battery and one headphone port. LG has approached a totally different design which comes with a separate headphone jack and battery.
