  • Publication number: 20190278338
    Abstract: 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.

  • Publication number: 20190243412
    Abstract: The description relates to display devices. One example can include a display having an active area surrounded by an inactive deadband. The example can also include a chassis, the display received in the chassis and secured to the chassis beneath the inactive deadband with adhesive. The example can further include a fastening assembly positioned below the inactive deadband and farther beneath the plane than the adhesive, where the fastening assembly creates a retention force between the display and the chassis.

  • Publication number: 20190094917
    Abstract: The description relates to hinged devices, such as hinged computing devices. One example can include a hinge assembly that rotatably secures a first portion and a second portion relative to a hinge axis and defines a planar conductor path between the first and second portions through the hinge assembly. The example can also include a pop-up arm that compresses a spring when the first portion and the second portion are rotated to a closed orientation, and wherein the compressed spring creates a bias to rotate the first and second portions from the closed orientation to an open orientation.

  • Patent number: 10241548
    Abstract: The description relates to hinged devices, such as hinged computing devices. One example can include a first portion and a second portion. The example can also include a pair of self-spacing hinge assemblies rotatably securing hinge ends of the first and second portions and camming the first and second hinge ends apart from one another at non-parallel orientations of the first and second portions sufficient to prevent contact of the first and second hinge ends at the non-parallel orientations while allowing the first and second hinge ends to contact one another at other orientations.

  • Patent number: 10227808
    Abstract: The description relates to devices, such as computing devices that have hinged portions. One example can include a first portion and a second portion. This example can also include a hinge assembly and a magnetic assembly. The hinge assembly can rotatably secure the first portion to the second portion. The magnetic assembly can be positioned relative to the hinge assembly and the first and second portions that bias the first and second portions to a closed position where the first and second portions overlay one another and to an open position where the first and second portions are juxtaposed and coplanar.

  • Patent number: 10162442
    Abstract: A compliant support for a display device is described. In one or more implementations, an apparatus includes an external enclosure configured to assume a mobile computing device configuration and one or more computing components secured by and disposed within the external enclosure. The one or more computing components are configured to perform one or more operations that are specified by software. A display device is secured to the external enclosure such that the display device is viewable by a user, the display device supporting touchscreen functionality. A compliant support is disposed between the one or more computing components and the display device, the compliant support configured to reduce deflection of the display device by compression of the compliant support, the deflection caused in response to contact against a surface of the display device.

  • Patent number: 10146090
    Abstract: Display devices with a minimized border and methods of manufacturing display devices are described herein. In one example, a display unit is provided, the display unit having a display active area disposed between an encapsulation layer and a substrate such that the encapsulation layer encloses the display active area between a surface of the encapsulation layer and a surface of the substrate. A section of the display unit is cut at one edge of the display unit such that a portion of the encapsulation layer and a portion of the substrate are removed from the display unit while no display active area is removed. The cut section of the display unit is then sealed.
