In more recent times, we have been encountering a larger number of patent stories in relation to foldable smartphones. Due to the fact that so many of such patents are being filed, many of these devices are also at the same time expected to be future smartphones. With that said, Huawei has now gone on to patent yet another clamshell foldable smartphone that makes way with a rather uncanny resemblance with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. Just a few days ago, the Chinese manufacturer went on to launch its latest flagship series in the Mate 40 series. It indeed could be the case that due to the trade ban imposed on the company as a result of the friction between the US and China, the Mate 40 series could be the last high-end phones from Huawei in a very long time. Nonetheless, the company continues to patent as well as invest in new technology despite its inability to produce them due to the US ban.

It was subject to being approved and was published on the 23rd of this month. A new patent filed in by the Chinese company goes on to show that Huawei managed to fix the biggest con found on the Galaxy Z Flip \u2013 by adding a larger screen to its design. However, this panel is uneven with cursed corners on one side and flat on the other. Moreover, the volume rockers are placed on the left hand side, while the power button is actually found on the right. There also happens to be the Huawei branding etched on the back of the device along of course with the logo. Also, considering the fact that the inner display is without any obstructions, it may end up featuring with an In-display camera if indeed Huawei ever plans to use this particular design.
