Lenovo was the first major manufacturer to introduce the world to a folding notebook with Windows. So it’s no wonder that the company has been recording a number of curious patents involving this type of device.
This week, the Chinese giant has requested another record for a “two-screen electronic device with a display control method.” According to the documentation available, when using two displays, the device can gain some extra features.
The images that were attached to the patent application also confirm that this device keeps a certain resemblance to the ZTE Axon M. For those who do not remember, the Chinese smartphone was the first in the world to have two screens.
Documents from the United States Patent Office also provide a brief description of Lenovo. Check out:
The apparatus includes: a first display screen with a physical edge; a second display screen with a second physical edge; and a processor, configured to control the display of the first display screen and the second display screen. One mode of use: the first display screen is user-friendly, while the second display is positioned on the backside of the first display.
In general terms, this device is practically the same as ZTE Axon M, and the biggest differences can be the size of the displays and the operating system.
It is worth remembering that simply registering a patent does not always indicate that the manufacturer is actually planning to launch a product on the market. Therefore, we emphasize that in many cases, these ideas end up being “shelved” .
