Looks like a normal hinge with a detent for positioning.

Yea I don't think it has a unique name. It uses a the principle of a cam to facilitate the poisitioning.

If I had to give it a name, I would call it a "spring detent hinge". Try searching variations such as, "cam detent hinge", or "multi-position hinge", etc.
