Microsoft Surface Phone Latest Update: New Features Revealed!
A lot has been written and spoken about the much-awaited Microsoft Surface Phone. However, there is nothing much officially revealed about the device yet. As per the latest reports, the patents have finally revealed some interesting details about the phone, giving us an insight into its stunning features.
According to reports, the patents have revealed that the company is planning something out of the box for its new device. Referring to the “Live Hinge” concept, they said that Microsoft Surface Phone might feature a special hinge-like showcased in its previous devices. One of the patents also concluded that the phone will not only be a powerful performer but will also be a compact and easy-to-use device.
This special hinge will reportedly enable the device fold in and out without hassle. It will basically feature a full 360-degree rotation model, allowing both the screens to turn flat completely. According to the patents, the phone will have three modes: one will be closed without any screen exposed, “an open tablet-like configuration” that features both the displays folding out. The third and the last mode will be “a full 360-degree mode that features active screens on both sides of the device”.
“Mobile phone displays have increased in size to the point where they can now consume almost an entire front surface of a phone. In some cases, further increases in display size would detract from other capabilities of the devices, such as its pocket-sized form factor”, as quoted by the patents.
Microsoft explains why the Surface Phone is a multi-part device
Reportedly, Microsoft has said that the Surface Phone is a multi-port device. The brand explains that a multi-part phone features more than two parts paired together. It is generally bound together by a hinge. In some devices, the displays can be “positioned adjacent each other to expand the effective display size”. It further describes that in case of an open position, the displays are “positioned back-to-back”, thereby allowing the customers to rotate it to view the opposing display.
