Samsung is developing foldable panels for many mobile phone manufacturers, including Google, according to new information.While there is little information surrounding the advertising giant's new mobile phone, the latest reports offer new insights into Google's possible plans.
Google may be working on the same clamshell design as Apple's, because it's less prone to failure than a device that folds and unfolds like a book. Assuming Google decides to launch a foldable flagship similar to the galaxy Z fold 2, it may not be good for customers in terms of pricing, so given its poor ranking in the smartphone market, increasing sales may be the top priority of the technology giant.
However, just because Samsung provides Google with foldable panels does not mean that we will see foldable pixels in the near future or in the far future. It's just that the company is doing some testing and observing how customers see the market. So far, Samsung has only shipped 2.8 million foldable smartphones in 2020, making it a leader in this field. However, this figure is insignificant compared with that of ordinary mobile phones in the same year. Simply put, it will take years for foldable smartphones to recover, so don't expect Google to release a foldable pixel this year or 2022.
