San Francisco, Nov 22 (IANS) Apple has patented a dual foldable device which relates to a Notebook-like future product with a foldable display.

The patent suggests Apple is looking at the dual-screen approach, rather than having a single one. The two screens appear to sit within a bendable case with its own internal hinge system, supported by magnets to hold the device in various orientations, reports Patently Apple.

When unfolded, the screens sit side by side, creating one large panel or potentially allowing a laptop-style experience with one screen propped up.

Currently, the Cupertino-based tech giant has not officially announced that when it will be launching a foldable smartphone.
