Rumors that Google is planning on releasing a foldable device have been circulating for a while. Now new information that Samsung will manufacture the foldable screen of the device comes to light. The Korean company will start mass production of foldable OLED panels for customers in October.
According to SamMobile, Google will use Samsung as manufacturer of the display of its future foldable device. The foldable phone could be called the Google Pixel Fold, and its display will measure at 7.6-inch. The technology used will most likely be AMOLED with at least FHD+ resolution, while the aspect ratio might be similar to the one of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, which is close to 1:1.
The foldable Google smartphone is rumored to be released either in the end of this year, or the beginning of 2022. The foldable phone will also use Samsung’s ultra-thin glass display tech.
Its no wonder that so many companies are choosing Samsung to make the foldable displays of their future devices. Samsung has been leading the way in foldable technology with its Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip series.
Samsung also has big plans for their own devices. The next Galaxy Z Flip should be announced in August, with slimmer bezels and two-tone color design. The next Galaxy Z Fold should also be introduced in August. Information about the Korean manufacturer working on a triple-folding device was revealed in a patent just days ago. The device could be called the Galaxy Z Fold Tab and come as early as next year.
