Future Smartphones Could Have A Second, Detachable Display

Future Smartphones Could Have A Second, Detachable Display

As we do more and more on our smartphones, inevitably the need for bigger screens will arise. But since we don’t want bigger phones, device makers are stuck in a rough spot. Microsoft might have a solution, though: a detachable second screen, giving users the ability of dual-screen navigation.

As the blueprint above demonstrates, Microsoft’s design calls for magnetic strips aligned edge-to-edge along the side of the two displays. They filed the patent back in February, so it’s anyone’s guess as to when, if ever, we’ll see this technology.
