Microsoft is reportedly working on a foldable tablet called Andromeda, and the company has already applied for several patents for such a device. In the past few months, the patents confirmed that the Andromeda will feature two displays, hinge and a interesting camera tech.

A new Microsoft patent published yesterday shows off another foldable device with a dual display and hinge setup, but interestingly there’s a third display on the hinge itself. Microsoft in the patent filing explains that the screen surface of the hinge could display certain information “that is coupled to other screen regions”.

“For instance, a state of a hinge that is coupled between a first screen region and a second screen region may be determined. Information that is to be displayed on a third screen region that is provided on the hinge may be determine based at least in part on the state of the hinge,” Microsoft explains in a patent application.

It is worth noting that Microsoft filed the patent on November 9, 2016.

The information that is to be displayed on the third screen (hinge region) could be virtual control, notifications, time, and messages or call. Such a hinge would make sense when the device is in laptop form factor with one display being located on a surface of an object.

People with knowledge of the matter said Microsoft has been working for quite some time on Andromeda with dual display and hinge setup, which is similar to the Microsoft Courier concept.

Microsoft could announce the Andromeda later this year, and the company could also share new information on Windows Core OS. While the company has remained completely tight-lipped on the project, more information could still emerge in the coming months.
