SAN FRANCISCO, Ca. (KRON)—Apple may be bringing back an old, but popular style of cell phones with their newest design.
On Tuesday, the tech giant was granted the patent to a fold-able, flexible display screen.
Apple’s latest ideas could one day lead to a bendable iPhone much like the old-school flip phone.
The patent features a touch-screen smartphone with a design popularized by clam-shell phones, one that opens and closes like a notebook.
It’s unknown for sure if there is an iPhone flip phone in the works, but Apple’s patents often provide a glimpse into what the company is thinking for the future.
