To prove the possibility of a foldable Surface Phone, MSPowerUser has discovered the patent (USPTO Patent No. 9,541,962) awarded to Microsoft last January 10, 2017 that indicates a "mobile computing device having a hinge structure". The patent also describes the capability of the phone to switch from tablet to smartphone mode and vice versa.
