On August 3, 2020 Fujifilm Business Innovation Corp. filed a patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). A 51-page patent entitled “Electronic Device and Nonvolatile Machine-Readable Media” was published on September 9, 2021 and is also included in the World Intellectual Property Organization database to protect the patented technology.

In addition to detailed descriptions, the documentation contains 47 patent images showing Fujifilm’s foldable smartphone with a large screen that folds inward and a second touchscreen display on the outside. The design is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold.

This applies not only to the design, but also to the use. Fujifilm writes in a patent document about the ability to control a flexible screen with a stylus. The same feature is available in the recently released Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3.

Graphic designer Technizo Concept has created a series of product renders based on Fujifilm’s proprietary images. The Fujifilm foldable smartphone can be placed at different angles, the documentation says the folding angle is from 30 to 135 degrees. While the phone is rotated less than 30 degrees, the home screen will be turned off to conserve battery power.

If the user has opened a specific application on the large screen and then folded the device, the application will be displayed on the external screen and vice versa. The same feature is implemented in the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3.

Interestingly, the patent does not say anything about cameras, although judging by the name of the manufacturer, it should be a worthy cameraphone.

Geely founder sets up a smartphone manufacturing venture

Published

on

Chinese carmaker Geely, which owns Volvo, has announced that its chairman Eric Li, also known as Li Shufu, is setting up a new company that will make premium smartphones.

Founder Zhejiang Geely Holding’s new venture will aim to launch its first smartphone by 2023 and sell 3 million units in the first year.

Lee had previously made futuristic bets on ventures such as flying cars and helicopter taxis. In a smartphone market that is no longer growing in China, the new company will have to compete with Apple, Xiaomi and other established manufacturers.

Notably, smartphone makers are looking to enter the electric vehicle market, realizing that the smartphone boom is coming to an end. However, Geely is the first car manufacturer to try to move in the opposite direction.

The company said in a statement to Reuters that the new company will be called Hubei Xingji Shidai Technology Co Ltd and that it has already signed an agreement with the Wuhan Economic and Technological Development Zone to establish a headquarters in the central city of Wuhan. Li owns 55% of Xingji Shidai. The project will be financed with an investment of $ 1.55 billion.

Published

Samsung mobile head Tae Moon Roh (TM Roh) confirmed that he has made two work visits to the United States this year to obtain more stocks of chips and application processors needed to make smartphones.

According to TheElec, Tae Moon Ro met with major component manufacturers in the US to get more chips and asked major partners to increase shipments for the South Korean tech giant. However, according to sources close to this, the trips did not end as Samsung planned.

The first trip was made in March, the second took place in July. The source also added that the president of Samsung Mobile visited the headquarters of the global SoC maker in July and asked for additional chips, but was ultimately denied.

The component maker responded to Tae Moon Ro that the company also wants to increase its total supply, but cannot yet increase shipments for Samsung. The source adds that Tae Moon Ro was also accompanied by the vice president, who stayed in the United States after the division head’s visit and returned to South Korea after staying there for about three months.

However, a company spokesman said that their trips still cannot be called completely unsuccessful, since they really led to the fact that the brand was able to increase sales a little.
