  • Patent number: 10503210
    Abstract: Disclosed are a folding device of a foldable display and a display device having the same. The folding device is rotatable sequentially or in stages through a plurality of unit hinges rotated relative to one another about multiple axes. Therefore, the folding device is applicable to both an inner folding type and an outer folding type, and the respective unit hinges are rotated by gear motions and may thus be stably rotated and assure reliability.
