Motorola’s Foldable Phone Gets Special Thermal Process for Repairing Screen Damage

By Radu Iorga

One of Motorola’s latest patents has to do with foldable phones, or better said with one of its main problems: damage brought to the mechanisms. As you know, a device that flexes and flexes will eventually break, but Moto has a solution. It’s been patented and detailed below.

The patent has to do with a method to repair hinge and screen damage. The foldable phone may create a permanent crease as it folds and unfolds multiple times. Moto solves that by heating up, countering the deformation. Foldable smartphones have yet to find a proper path and a proper format. ZTE has the Axon M as a sort of landmark and Microsoft and Samsung are also working on such a product.

No other device maker has found the ideal hinge to connect two displays, although I kind of love what Lenovo did with the Yoga Book and Microsoft with the Surface Book. Those hinges are quite quality ones. Last I heard Samsung was exploring a cylindrical hinge for the Galaxy X, one that would revolve around the outside of the device. These ideas are only available in patent form and they don’t always become real products.

Other patents for the Moto foldable include mentions of dual cameras, a selfie one on the front left and a dual camera on the top right. Hinges are placed at the top center and top bottom, so you can prop it up like a tent. The idea of healing some surface or mechanism via heat was also used, if I’m not mistaking on the LG G Flex and G Flex 2, which had you rubbing the outer surface to heal scratches.

Huawei and Apple are also rumored to be exploring a foldable.

By Tim

Okay, nothing too fabulous prize wise, but hopefully you will get the humor! Think of it like all the hype we hear about the latest smartphone, only to hear from the very same reviewer a week later that maybe it is not the perfect phone after all. That adapter or that microphone might be useful, the spoon, uh, no.

You are going to need to send an email to the following address:
hiendcheaptech@gmail.com
Of course you must include the answers to the following questions…
1. What was the prizes available portion shot on? Yeah, watch the whole video!
2. What is my current choice for my next phone? Yeah, you may have to actually peruse the channel for that.
3. What type of desktop PC do I use and what is the processor it uses? ie: N3450 Apollo Lake, N4200, Core i7,etc. (hint, not one of those listed)

So let us proceed right to the video and perhaps you can be a winner. You might be subscriber 11 or 13, who knows, but you have to answer those questions listed on the video description, or just read above since I did copy and paste the description into this article!

Samsung Foldable Phone Gets Pictured in Prototype Form, Looks Like a ZTE Axon M

By Radu Iorga

We all knew that Samsung was preparing a foldable phone for release in 2019, but we had yet to see something more than than speculations and patents. Well today that changes, as we get to see a foldable phone from Samsung, leaked in a few prototype pics.

To be clear, this device has been cancelled in the meantime and it’s not exactly fresh, as the UI itself reveals. Some even say it’s as old as 2015. The South Koreans have been working on a foldable phone for years and one of their cancelled prototypes has hit the web. It feels very familiar, since it looks just like the ZTE Axon M. To be honest, it’s actually a bit uglier.

It’s like two older Galaxy A models glued together somehow. We’ve got a main front panel with a 16:9 screen hooked to another screen. The hinge between them is pretty narrow and discrete, not very visible but the second screen feels like it’s placed on a too slim slab of metal. We also know that this device is codenamed SM-G929F and it’s also known as “Project V”.

Many seem to believe it’ll be launched at MWC 2019, or even CES 2019, if it’s ready on time. We’re expecting a 7.3 inch full screen when the device is opened and a 4.5 inch one when folded. The result, the so called Galaxy X will be a limited edition product, priced at around $2000 and produced in 300.000 to 500.000 units. Hopefully it’ll look better than this.
