There are two 5.6-inch AMOLED displays that have a hinge in between that make this happen. And the hinge is a thin little sliver that literally disappears when you unfold it, thus giving you a massive screen. Once again, the hinge has radical innovation and can be opened to any point and angle. Some of the specs aren’t very 2020 (Snapdragon 855 processor is a dead giveaway), but that isn’t the point.
