Recently, the Chinese Intellectual Property Office published a new patent for Huawei, revealing a new tri-folding phone smartphone desing that looks interesting from the sketches.
The patent has application number CN217847335U and is titled “foldable electronic equipment and housing device. That’s not it, the patent also includes a diagram and actual design in work.
According to the details, there’s a foldable phone with a three-fold structure. There are two hinges, one on the left side and the other on the right side.
These hinges are connected between the second housing and the second moving part of the second hinge assembly. So as to prevent the second housing and the third housing from being folded relative to the second hinge assembly.
When the second housing and the third housing are in the open state, and the first housing and the second housing are relatively folded from the open state to the first closed state, the second end of the connecting member moves away from the second hinge assembly.
Thereafter, the second housing and the third housing can be folded relative to the second shaft assembly. The electronic equipment needs to be folded in a certain order by setting the connecting device, so as to ensure smooth movement of the folding components and improve the life of the electronic equipment.
Work in the patent:
Currently, Huawei has not announced the production of a tri-folding smartphone. Hence, we can expect this to go out as research for the moment but we may see it in near future.
On the other hand, Huawei Pocket S comes with a flip-style foldable design. These are all well received by consumers, as Huawei is the only company after Samsung that is pursuing foldable devices with new smartphones.

Huawei publishes new virtual display tech to avoid eye strain
Today, Huawei issued an interesting patent for virtual display technology. As the term says, this development will enhance the virtual experience of users and prevent them from unnecessary eye strain and related issues.
Huawei patents are constantly adding new inventions to the shelves. In the meantime, the company has served the market with a variety of imaging and display processing innovations. As of now, the company is bringing another invention on board.
In the latest development, Huawei has obtained a new virtual display patent application with a CN115407504A number. Besides, the application reads the title “virtual display device and virtual display method”.
Eventually, the respective mechanism will help in reducing the lighting and reflection issues. On the other hand, it will improve the convergence adjustment and will offer effective display functions that can prevent stress on the eyes.
Virtual Display and its Functioning
The input reveals that the tech maker is working on unique VR glasses. These glasses will consist of an infrared camera, a zoom module, and most importantly a display module on both sides.
Accordingly, the display module will use micro-chips and will control the following functions:
- Displaying the objects
- Adjusting the depth of convergence of the object
- Enhancing the imaging surface depth
Further, the image here has two objects. The display module will showcase the first object, its depth of convergence, and its imaging surface. Thereafter, the second object is displayed along with its depth of convergence, and the imaging surface.
Since the first object’s depth of convergence will differ from the second object, the display module will adjust the depth of convergence. Thus, users will not need to pressurize their eyes for looking at closer objects.
Depth of Convergence
The adjustment in the depth of convergence plays a vital role. While looking at a close object, our eyes angle inwards. This is known as convergence. However, extra effort and pressure on the eyes can make them suffer from fatigue and more problems.
Hence, Huawei took the initiative to build such a technology. Let’s see when we will get the efficient product in our hands.
Huawei patent shows new technology to enhance chip development
Huawei issued a new patent to enhance the chip development of the company. The latest patent application shows the usage of EUV lithography technology to improve the manufacturing of integrated circuits and chipsets.
For your information, EUV (Extreme UltraViolet) Lithography is an optical technology used to make chipsets and circuits for electronic devices. It is a preferable tech for processors of 7nm or below processing structures.
Further, lithography mainly performs the transfer, processing, and creation of micro-nano graphics. It also verifies the total elements equipped in a chipset and checks the appropriate size and other details in the circuits.
After noting down such benefits, Huawei decided to obtain the respective tech patent to improve its chip development. As per the latest inputs, this mechanism will use a reflector, lithography system, and control management.
In addition, the lithography system will comprise the following components:
- A specialized mirror (Decoherent Mirror)
- Illumination (lighting) system
- Reflecting Mirror or rotating mirror
Here, the illumination system plays a vital role in the whole mechanism. It provides high-uniform light, controls exposure, and determines off-axis lighting effects to optimize the level of resolution and raise the depth of focus.
Besides, this system includes a field-wide-vision compound lens, a diaphragm-wide-vision lens, and a relay lens.
How the lithography technology will work?
To begin with, a coherent source along with a rotating mirror will emit light on the illumination system. This system will divide the emitted light into multiple sub-rays using the field-wide-vision compound lens.
After the division, the diaphragm lens and the relay lens will adjust the direction and radiation of each sub-ray and project it on the mask area to conduct lithography.
Together, this process will form an interference pattern that will keep on changing with new light rays. Consequently, this will equalize the light exposure and will solve the un-uniform light issues that often occur in chip development.
Alongside uniform light rays, this mechanism will ease the creation and formation of the nano-particles that are assembled in the integrated circuits or the micro-chipsets.
Huawei patent shows new human-machine interaction technology
Huawei has recently issued a new patent regarding the man-machine system. As the name suggests, the mechanism will optimize human-machine interaction and will make functions and performance more efficient.
According to the latest information, the patent application number is CN115390655A. Further, it entitles “human-computer interaction method, human-computer interaction device and storage medium”.
Moreover, the details show that the new Huawei patent for an advanced man-machine system will quickly resolve the issues regarding different operations. As a result, users can run a bunch of tasks at the same time without dealing with confusion or hindrances.
How does it work?
The latest patent application defines how the man-machine interaction method works. It comprises a human-computer display system, an operating component, and a visual stimulation area for commanding operations.
When a user will command their first operation on the visual stimulation area, it will be determined by an EEG (Electro-encephalography) signal. For your information, this signal is used to measure the electrical activity of the brain and eases the command understanding.
Then comes the visual stimulation area which consists of several small zones. A user will focus on different zones to produce various EEG signals. Consequently, these signals will help in executing numerous operations and functions using the operating component.
China has begun the work!
China has already begun its tick-tacks in the brain-computer interface technology. Many regions in the nation have started supporting the policies for human-computer interface research and development.
A recent example is Shanghai which has brought a new plan into action and started the development of man-machine technology for industrial evolution.
Brain-computer or a man-machine scenario is a new and leading topic in science and technology. It would be worth seeing what Huawei is baking in this aspect for its users and operators.
