The display folds and unfolds from the right side of the device and the hinge is situated on the right corner. The patent shows that the majority of the phone surface is covered by the display. The rendered image also shows a button at the bottom which might be used for unfolding the phone.


It's been also noticed that the left part of the foldable phone is thicker than the right because it consists of all the major components like processor, RAM, motherboard, and more. The design looks thin, but the company has not revealed the camera modules on the phone, because the design doesn't showcase any punch-hole on the display.

At CES 2020 Intel showcased its prototype of foldable laptop called Horseshoe Bend. It was demonstrated with a 17.3-inch foldable OLED screen in a clamshell design. We believe that the design of the foldable smartphone is also at an initial stage and the company going to make changes to it. We can expect more information about the foldable smartphone from Intel shortly.
