Google Currently Working On A Pixel With Foldable Display

Google I/O: Foldable phone support is coming in Android Q

Fast-forward a few weeks ago, Samsung had given select reviewers the chance to test this new product and they obviously pinned a lot of hopes on its success.

Despite the mishaps of Samsung's Galaxy Fold, almost every brand wants a foldable phone of its own.

Samsung's Galaxy Fold may have gotten the new foldable wave of devices off to a false start, but that hasn't deterred Google from continuing to work on the platform.

There may be the Motorola RAZR foldable phone, Nubia foldable phone, Lenovo vertical foldable phone, and another one from LG.

It turns out that Google did confirm that it's exploring foldable handsets, but there's no point getting excited about a foldable Pixel handset just yet. That doesn't mean Google will go the same way with its Pixel foldable. To abate this, Google announced a much affordable Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL yesterday at the Google I/O keynote and the duo offers the same Pixel photography experience at a much lower price.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold's postponement due to displays breaking may be a factor why OEMs need to wait a bit.

"Google has also experimented with the foldable form, said Mario Queiroz, who leads development of Pixel phones, ahead of the search giant's I/O developer conference".

Huawei Mate X foldable phone. "We've been doing it for a long time", Google's Mario Queiroz told CNET before I/O.

Foldable smartphones are the next big thing, at least that's what all major smartphone manufacturers think. "The use case is going to need to be something where you go, 'Hey, I definitely need to have this.' Right now, you don't need to have a foldable".
