Apple acquired a new patent for the manufacture of a retractable smartphone. The company obtained this patent through the US Patent Office so that the phone will be able to fold itself twice and not once, so it is possible to make a phone The size of the tablet can be folded twice for up to the size of the normal smartphone.

Apple, Samsung, and Huawei, however, have been beaten in foldable phones market by Royole, a Chinese start-up, which unveiled a foldable Android phone with a bigger screen, priced from around $1,300. Royole said it would start filling orders in late December.
