Title
(EN) Hinged device
Abstract
(EN)

The description relates to hinge devices. One example relates to a device that has a first portion and a second portion. The device can include a hinge assembly secured to the first portion and the second portion and a flexible display secured to the first portion and the second portion. The device can include a biasing element that biases the first portion away from the hinge assembly. The device can further include a cord that extends along a pathway between the first portion and the hinge assembly. A length of the pathway can change as the first and second portions are rotated around the hinge assembly, such that at a first orientation the biasing element biases the first portion away from the hinge assembly and at a second orientation, the cord overcomes the bias and pulls the first portion toward the hinge assembly.
