Samsung brought us its latest generation of folding screen mobile phones-Galaxy Z Fold 2. Compared with the previous generation, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 has been upgraded in appearance and configuration, with a higher screen-to-body ratio and a more durable hinge. Now, the latest patent shows that Samsung seems to be thinking of ways to upgrade the appearance of the. The latest patent shows that Samsung Galaxy Z Fold has added a “light indicator” that is integrated into a hidden hinge. The indicator is mounted on a hidden hinge, which contains a light-emitting element. It is a strip with LED lighting elements and a partially translucent cover to protect the optical module from external influences and can emit light through the hinged cover, which can emit red, blue, green, and white light.
This new indicator is used to notify the user of new messages and incoming calls because it is difficult for the phone to signal similar events when the sound or vibration of the smartphone is turned off.
In addition, in some situations where it is not possible to view the screen of the mobile phone, such as when the mobile phone is placed upside down on a table or in a bag, the indicator light can still provide information at this time, so as to notify the user of new information in time.
