Japan Display's smartphone screen folds open

Japan Display links two LCD panels to expand a smartphone screen.

TOKYO -- Japan Display has developed a format that allows smartphones to fold open like a book, hinging two LCD panels to double a handset's working size.

The Japanese developer and manufacturer of mobile displays is working with a Chinese smartphone maker to create a handset that will debut in the summer. The undisclosed Chinese partner is a major global smartphone maker, thus offering Japan Display a consistent source of demand for the panels.
