There have been reports swirling around Google’s first foldable phone but yet they are not too frequent and even not exposing much. Up until now, we have mainly heard reports on the phone’s existence and which supplier is supplying the OLED displays.

Well, following the same fashion, a new report has surfaced that claims Google’s first foldable phone is using an Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG) for its display. This is the same display type that Samsung had switched to after a prominent failure of the display of its first foldable phone. It then introduced the world’s first folding glass phone – the Galaxy Z Flip in February last year. The phone utilizes the Ultra-Thin Glass, which is touted to be more durable and have better endurance against scratches.

Coming back to Elec’s report, it further states that this Google Pixel Fold will feature a 7.6-inch foldable display from Samsung Display. This falls in line with a previous report came in February that suggested Samsung Display would supply OLED panels for Google.

The exact launch of Google’s first foldable phone is unknown but referring to a past report from The Elec, we might see it coming in Q4 2021. It is suspected that Google could take the veil off its first foldable phone alongside the launch of the Pixel 6 series later this year.

At the moment, Google hasn’t provided any official information about the foldable device, but we expect to learn more in the coming months, well, if such a device really exists.
