                          There’s room for the display inside the phone because the hinge mechanism ( and 506 lives on the left and right side of the display, rather than behind it.

                          You can see how that translates to a real design here.

Motorola combined the nostalgic design of one of the most iconic flip phones ever, with new-age foldable display technology and a wild new hinge design that did not crease the display. Frankly, it seemed like a real winner.
