Apple has created a thin, durable hinge for the flexible iPhone

Apparently, Apple has come to a step closer to releasing its first foldable screen smartphone. The Cupertino-based company has patented a new hinge mechanism that could be used in the future iPhone.

According to PatentlyApple, the patent was named "Electronic devices with frictional joints made of fibrous composite material." The description confirms that the device will use a flexible display that will be positioned over a fiber composite hinge mechanism.

In addition, the materials suggest that the new hinge will be thinner than the solutions on the market, but still strong enough. The document states that “an electronic device can have one or more hinges. For example, the folding device may have a first housing portion that is connected to a second housing portion by a frictional hinge. The friction pivot may include carbon fiber-reinforced composite structures. The use of fiber composite structures can help reduce the volume of the loop while improving its performance. "

There is no official news yet on the foldable iPhone, but insiders speculate that it will launch in the next two to three years.
