It seems as if 2019 will be the year of foldable phones, and with some unlikely players, like Motorola, stepping in. This alleged $1,500 smartphone is based on a patent with the USPTO and WIPO for a ‘deformable electronic device with methods and systems for controlling the deformed user interface,’ published on Jan, 10, 2019. When this device is folded, users can interact with one section of the screen to operate the other part. For example, a scrolling movement with their index finger on the rear display area can move the content on the front side, great when browsing web pages.

“In addition to a scroll movement, Motorola’s foldable smartphone can also recognize other gesture movements. Like a single tap or a double tap, but also pinch, pull, swipe, drag or press movements will be recognized. This way you can easily re-scale content or confirm an action. You can also move content from one screen to the other. Furthermore, the patented Motorola smartphone features two intelligent cameras, which are capable of detecting an user’s face / eyes, which can be used in the camera,” reports Lets Go Digital.
