Google foldable phone is being developed but don’t hold your breath

"We're prototyping foldable displays and many other new hardware technologies, and have no related product announcements to make at this time", Queiroz told CNET, highlighting that Google is now focussing on the Pixel 3a series.

It is unclear how the company would develop its foldable prototype or how its screen would operate when opened and closed.

There are now not details regarding the design of Google's foldable, but it's possible that it will be different to what we have seen so far. And all of this led to people thinking that Google is surely looking to join the bandwagon by making the first foldable Pixel smartphone.

In an interview with Cnet, Google's head of Pixel development said, "We're definitely prototyping the technology". That said, the search engine company isn't in any rush to release one into the market, as "there's no clear use case yet". Google had already announced support for foldable displays in Android Q. But you shouldn't expect a Pixel branded foldable smartphone anytime soon.

However, the exec added that he doesn't think there's a clear use yet for these devices.

Also, it makes sense for Google to wait and see if anyone makes a working foldable smartphone and if it's popular enough for the company to invest for the commercial production. The Android Q video above suggests the former but, then again, Google did collaborate with Samsung on the Galaxy Fold.

Samsung Electronics has said that it can not confirm the shipping date for "Galaxy Fold" smartphone, tendering an apology to its pre-order customers in the United States for the delay.
