South Korea-based LG has patented a new foldable device with an outward-folding design similar to Huaweis Mate X with three cameras on the left side of the screen.

The patent diagrams show the device hen unfolded, the cameras can be used for taking selfies and for video recording while they serve as rear cameras when folded, news portal GizmoChina reported on Monday.

It has been reported that the patent was filed back in May 2019 before it was published on November 29.

Recently, the company patented a new handset with extendable display that doubles the screen surface. The patent has been registered with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) and was published on November 15 with some sketches.

The phone looks like a standard smartphone, but the screen can be extended to both sides, making the display wider. The device seemed a lot more like an e-reader than a smartphone, it added.

As per the sketches of the device on LetsGoDigital, the display is so large that it can be rolled up twice around the device’s housing, and one would be able to roll it out as much as they want.

With what could purportedly be called the “G Pad 5”, South Korean tech major LG might be looking to revive its tablet business, two years after getting out of the game.

Not only has LG been out of the tablet game for over two years, but the Snapdragon 821 chipset just seems too old to even be available at this point of time.

However, references to the G Pad 5 and LM-T600, code named TF10, have been creeping up all over the place, GSMArena reported on Saturday.
