Canon Patent - Expandable LCD Camera Display

The Japanese photography blog, Egami, has discovered a new Canon patent for a flexible and expandable LCD screen for digital cameras. The LCD screen is expanded by rotating the grip side of the camera.

The technology may apply to both DSLRs and compact/mirrorless cameras.  It appears the camera can provide a 'larger' LCD screen if the user desires, judging from the translated material.
