Patent reveals Microsoft’s detachable dual display technology

9 Jun


Documentation regarding a recently published patent from Microsoft highlights a new invention for a dual display smartphone that can separate into two functional units, Patent Bolt reported on Friday. The software giant’s patent could take the hassle out of sharing a screen — literally — with another person. Rather than being crammed in front of one screen, the smartphone’s display could be split in two, allowing each viewer to watch his or her own display. The technology could also be used in a situation where a user needs to talk on a smartphone and browse data simultaneously without the need for a headset or a loudspeaker. The two displays would be held together with magnetic strips that are aligned edge-to-edge on the side of the display, according to Microsoft’s patent. The company filed for the patent in February of this year, however it has been in possession of the technology since 2009.
