The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a patent for a “Flexible display device” to LG Electronics. The document describes a new smartphone with a pull-out screen.

As planned by LG, the gadget will receive a flexible touchscreen display that will curl up inside the case. This will allow the device to be used in several modes, including in the form of a small tablet.

In the normal state, the owner will be dealing with a traditional candy bar type smartphone. By pulling the screen out of the case, the user will be able to approximately double the useful area of ​​the panel.

 

It is noted that the flexible display can be made using organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology or electronic paper. The patent describes the design of a module that allows the screen to be twisted and pulled out.

As you can see in the illustrations, the device has a symmetrical USB Type-C port. In addition, the presence of an infrared transceiver is mentioned.

The patent application was filed in September last year, and the document was issued this month. About when a smartphone with the described design may appear on the commercial market, nothing has been reported.
