Now, smartphone that folds in to different shapes

London, May 4: A new phone has been developed that can be transformed from single screen to widescreen in an instant, making it the world’s first foldable smartphone.

PaperFold’s displays can be folded, detached and flipped to create different shapes and it can even be turned into a mini laptop, the Daily Star reported.

The device, which is developed by Canadian designers, is currently just a prototype, but can change smartphone design forever.

Dr. Vertegaal, a Queen’s University professor, in Ontario Canada, said that in PaperFold, each display tile can act independently or as part of a single system and the device allows multiple device form factors, providing support for mobile tasks that require large screen real estate or keyboards on demand, while retaining an ultra-compact, ultra-thin and lightweight form factor.
