Fake News: A Report Claims that Huawei Received a Foldable Smartphone Patent ahead of Samsung and Apple
A report published today by Moneycontrol News claims that Huawei has received a patent for a foldable smartphone ahead of Samsung and Apple. This is false or fake news at its finest.
Fact: Apple was granted an elaborate foldable smartphone patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark office on November first 2016 or 16 months ahead of the one from Huawei.
Translation: Huawei did not win a foldable smartphone patent ahead of Apple.
Fact: Samsung was granted a foldable smartphone patent on August 2, 2016 titled "Foldable Display Device under # 9,406,734. A few patent figures illustrated below are from that granted patent.
Translation: Huawei did not win a foldable smartphone patent ahead of Samsung.
Should the Moneycontrol report be pulled? Duh, with nothing correct in that byline, it should - but if not, at least you have the facts to debunk this Fake News.
