Google reveals it’s working on foldable phone prototypes


Samsung may have just had its first ever, high-profile foldable phone flame out in embarrassing fashion, but that’s not stopping other companies from looking into the technology.
Ahead of its I/O developer conference, Google says it’s also looking into foldable tech and has been prototyping foldable displays for quite some time, according to CNET.

“We’re definitely prototyping the technology. We’ve been doing it for a long time,” Mario Queiroz, Google’s Pixel development lead, told CNET last week in an interview. According to Querioz, however, “I don’t think there’s a clear use case yet.”

That means we shouldn’t expect a foldable Pixel any time soon, or maybe ever. “We’re prototyping foldable displays and many other new hardware technologies, and have no related product announcements to make at this time,” Querioz said in a follow-up statement.
