(FR) DISPOSITIF D'AFFICHAGE PLIABLE AVEC SURFACE D'INTERFACE UTILISATEUR INTERPOSABLE SUR LA COQUE EXTERNE
Abstract
(EN)
Aspects of the present disclosure provide a foldable display device that includes a user interface surface located on an exterior cover section of the foldable display device that allows a user to interact with the user interface surface while the foldable display device is in a closed state. Interaction on the user interface surface during the closed state of the foldable display device may allow the user to select content to be shown on at least one display screen of the foldable display device on the interior section during a subsequent open state of the foldable display device. Additionally, the user interface surface may be configured to allow an object produced (e.g., drawn or written) on the user interface surface to be stored for display on at least one of the first display screen, the second display screen, or the user interface surface.

(FR)
Selon des aspects, la présente invention concerne un dispositif d'affichage pliable qui comprend une surface d'interface utilisateur située sur une section de couverture extérieure du dispositif d'affichage pliable qui permet à un utilisateur d'interagir avec la surface d'interface utilisateur pendant que le dispositif d'affichage pliable est dans un état fermé. L'interaction sur la surface d'interface utilisateur pendant l'état fermé du dispositif d'affichage pliable peut permettre à l'utilisateur de sélectionner un contenu à représenter sur au moins un écran d'affichage du dispositif d'affichage pliable sur la section intérieure pendant un état ouvert ultérieur du dispositif d'affichage pliable. En outre, la surface d'interface utilisateur peut être configurée pour permettre à un objet produit (par exemple, dessiné ou écrit) sur la surface d'interface utilisateur à stocker pour un affichage sur au moins l'un du premier écran d'affichage, du second écran d'affichage ou de la surface d'interface utilisateur.
