A foldable HTC phone might be in the works, based on a new patent Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

We’ve not heard much from HTC in terms of new smartphones in recent years, but the Taiwanese company could be making a dramatic return to the market with a foldable phone, according to a newly discovered patent.

As spotted by LetsGoDigital, the filing shows a mobile device that very definitely has a hinge in the middle, with the display apparently folding outwards so that it’s still visible (in two halves) when the phone is closed.
