In fact, folding a smartphone is not ideal — at the current stage of technology, they all have a number of design flaws. One of such shortcomings is the work output. The fact that the bending zone is exposed to low temperatures — this means that the display is easily damaged in the process of disclosure. To solve this problem, a new development from Apple. Here’s what’s on offer the company’s engineers.
The intended device will be equipped with a special sensor that will monitor the environment. As required, the temperature display will automatically adjust to prevent damage. Warming up the place of the bend will occur due to the activation of a special mode of pixels or by a special heating element.
This technology was recently was described in a patent application Apple. However, that’s not all — in the context of a particularly severe frost, a folding device and does not work to use the disclosure mechanism will be automatically locked. Yes, it still looks like a compromise — but as we know technology does not stand still.
Apparently, Apple really interested in this style, if you look at the number of registered patents in which we are talking about folding or flexible devices. On the one hand we really want to see something like this from Apple, but on the other hand, whether it is to us? This question is difficult to give a definite answer.
