Apple has filed a patent that hints at what a foldable iPhone may one day look like.

The patent is for a foldable electronic device that lies flat when open, but when closed leaves a small portion of the display exposed for showing notifications and other information.

It's far from being the first patent Apple has filed for a foldable device.

While it shouldn't be taken as evidence that Apple is definitely developing a foldable phone, it's another sign that the company has been thinking about what a foldable iPhone could look like.

A new Apple patent provides a glimpse at how the company may approach foldable phones, coming after multiple foldable devices from rivals like Samsung, Motorola, and Huawei have already hit the market.
The patent, which is dated July 7 and was first spotted by Apple Insider, is titled: "Foldable electronic device with exposed display region." It details a design for a mobile device with a flexible display that folds in half, with one portion of the screen still visible even when the the device is closed.
When unfolded, the device's screen would lie flat. But when closed, a portion of the display would protrude out so that it's still visible to the user. That exposed protruding section of the screen could be used to show notifications and other content while the phone is closed, the document says.
