OnePlus has patented a dual-hinge foldable phone that has three screens. The phone will have a larger display area and can fold into a triangle.
As spotted by LetsGoDigital, the phone will feature two hinges, one large and a small hinge, according to the patent. The thickest section of the screen will be supported by the larger hinge, which will probably contain the battery and other internals. The other two sections will be supported by the smaller hinge, therefore, the phone will highlight three folding sections. This dual-hinge foldable phone from OnePlus will likely act as a tablet when unfolded.
