Back in September, Google announced the foldable Smartphone to come in 2019. The new model will acquire a similar design to Samsung infinity flex display. The flex display panel revealed at the Samsung Developer Conference (SDC 2018) in San Francisco, California back in November last year. Whereas Google announced about the foldable device at itsAndroid Dev Summit.
At that Summit Google also said that the phone will come in two variants, talking about the first variant which probably will be a two-screen device like Samsung where there is an inward fold which hides the other big display by folding upon it. Users will be able to use the second display present outside. The other model will be a single screen device consists of two hinges which allow space for a much bigger display but one thing which is not good that upon folding it still remain big and wide, which you can not put in your pocket.
There were some speculations last year that Xiaomi was working on a foldable but it is still unclear whether they are working on a new model or it’s just a prototype yet. There was also a rumor that Google and Xiaomi both are working on a Foldable smartphone together. While the company notices that they want several Android OEMs to release a foldable phone.
