Fujifilm which is quite popularly known for its popular Mini Instax and other Polaroid camera lineup seems like will be emerging into the smartphone industry as well. Recently, the foldable smartphone patented by Fujifilm was spotted online.
However, Fujifilm is seemingly planning to emerge into the smartphone world with the recent trend, which is foldable. As foldable smartphone industry has been growing rapidly every year! Many smartphone brands have been continuously working towards bringing the best and durable foldable for their consumers. So, the completion for foldable will get an extra spice as Japan-based Fujifilm is also entering for a foldable smartphone.
According to a LetsGoDigital report, the company filed a new patent with the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) that was titled ‘Electronic device and non-transitory computer-readable medium.’ It was also included in the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) database. It details the device’s design and other specifications and contains an array of patent images.
Now, coming to the design, the Fujifilm patent details various aspects of the device, ranging from its processor and touch screen to the speakers, and the microphone. LetsGoDigital reports that the device looks much like Samsung’s latest Galaxy Fold 3, and Fujifilm even mentioned interfaces that will change based on the folding angle of the device. Moreover, the device will also come with Samsung’s App Continuity-like feature.
Although the company went into so much detail about the design of the device, it did not mention anything about the device’s cameras. However, as it is Fujifilm we are talking about, one can expect an advanced camera system. Moreover, the Fujifilm foldable device will also come with stylus support, much like the Galaxy Fold 3. Plus, the device will be able to fold from 30-degree to up to 135-degree angles.
As of now, there is no such word from Fujifilm regarding the launch or commercializing of its stylus supporting foldable smartphone. Also, it’s unclear whether this patent will remain patented or will Fujifilm work towards competing with other giants in the markets like Samsung and potentially Google as well.
