Nikkei Asian Review reported about a newly developed foldable display by Japan Display (JDI), that might arrive on a smartphone as early as next summer.

Nikkei Asian Review reported about a newly developed display panel by Japan Display (JDI), that can be opened and closed like a book and either show the same content on both sides (a film for instance) or entirely separate content, so people could write mail and surf the internet at the same time. This might be an ideal display for the smartphone industry, that strives to integrate bigger display sizes while maintaining portability.

Apparently, JDI is already working together with a big and global Chinese partner to release a smartphone with that display as early as next summer. Unfortunately we have no information on who that partner is as of yet. The display itself is based on LCD technology, features very slim 1 mm bezels around the screen and only has a 2 mm gap between the two sides of the display when opened.

As a former projectionist still used to working with 35 mm film and experience in computer assembling and overclocking, I was drawn to the professional IT crowd a couple of years back and started working in IT support, Windows administration and project management before discovering my love for traveling the world. Now I am working as a news editor from all parts of the world, mostly writing about gadgets and mobile gear for Notebookcheck.
