At the moment, HTC is not a significant player in the smartphone market, but the CEO of the company expects that by 2025 its smartphone division will be profitable. There are reports that the company is working on a folding smartphone.
Back in late 2019, HTC filed a patent with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO), which was published in August 2020. Resource LetsGoDigital has created high-quality renderings of the described device based on patent images.
Unlike the Moto Razr 2019, this device is folded so that the screen envelopes the body. The patent does not focus on the smartphone itself, but on the swivel mechanism.
The main camera contains three image sensors and an LED flash, and the front camera is cut into the central top of the display.
It is still unclear whether the company continues to work on such a cell phone or it will remain only a concept that will not reach the shelves of stores.
