From the patent information, the folding screen phone uses a zigzag double-fold design, which makes it in the fully extended state, you can get a tablet-sized display and touch interaction area, showing a more impactful video and game experience, and effectively improving efficiency. And when fully folded, this phone is not any different from ordinary phones except thicker.
