IBM patents a foldable smartwatch

July 15, 2019



Beside Samsung, Huawei, Sony or Apple, IBM also had the ambition to develop a folding screen device for itself. Recently IBM patents a smartwatch that can extend the screen to smartphones and tablets. The uniqueness of this device is that it has a smartwatch design, not a smartphone or tablet. This will bring tech-lovers smart experience with modern technology.

A special smartwatch of smart lifestyle trends

While we are waiting for the release of Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, there are rumors that Sony is also developing a smartphone with a scrolling screen. Meanwhile, Apple is reportedly testing an iPad with a folding screen.

Now, IBM, the largest company in the technology world, has received a patent for its own foldable device with a relatively different design. LetsGo Digital (via Tom’s Guide) has posted a real patent from USPTO. This patent was submitted by IBM in 2016 and was approved last month.

The patent shows a rectangular smartwatch with a thicker shell than normal below the screen. In addition, there is a box containing 7 additional screens. Tech-users will be able to open the screen on the clock from a table into two tables, four tables of eight tables. Each board is 3 inches by 2 inches in size; If you open it completely, you will get the screen equivalent to a 12 inch x 8 inch tablet.

A smart experience for modern lifestyle

When the four tables are open, the smart device will switch from smartwatch mode to smartphone mode with the appropriate interface change for the tech-users.
The lines on the screen are said to be minimal. The smart device will have at least one speaker and will work with the optional physical mouse and keyboard.
At the pressent, IBM has left the consumer electronics business, so it is likely that they will be interested in licensing patents once the technology is available to produce such a smart device.
