  • Patent number: 9380364
    Abstract: An electronic device including a body, a speaker, and a latch is provided. The speaker has a first rail. The speaker and the latch are movably assembled to the body respectively. The latch is coupled to both of the first and the second rails, wherein the first rail and the second rail have an acute angle therebetween. An object is suited for being assembled to the body detachably and pushes the latch to move along the first and the second rails at the same time, such that the latch drives a portion of the speaker to protrude out of the body. An electronic assembly is also provided.

  • Patent number: 9377815
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a first body, a second body, a pivot shaft, a pivot holder and restraining mechanisms. The first body includes a first connecting side, a groove disposed at the first connecting side and a first attracting component disposed in the groove. The second body includes a second connecting side where the pivot shaft is disposed at. The pivot holder connects the pivot shaft to rotate relative to the second body via the pivot shaft. The restraining mechanisms are disposed at the pivot holder. Each restraining mechanism includes a hollow protrusion and a second attracting component movably disposed in the hollow protrusions respectively. The first body is adapted to be engaged with the hollow protrusions via the groove.
