Looks like Google's thinking about a folding screen of its own

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Like Google is thinking about a folding screen of its own and have a picture on here. A folding screen our recent patent application filed by Google suggests these search giant is experimenting with foldable display technologies similar to the pound seen on the hallway ex and Samsung galaxy fold now the filing describes a method for constructing an oily de pound that can be bent repeatedly, and using a modern computing device. Now, what's interesting here is Google doesn't produce any displays of its own. And isn't the kind of company that really manufacturers its own hands. It's either like apple iphones, Google poorly, all sorts of manufacturing to pixel three two facts Khan and both HEC algae shared manufacturing duties on a pixel two phones. It doesn't mean this impossible for a product based on his Patton to see the light of day. It's just that invented does. It'll probably be because Google license it out to third party rather than producing affordable screen. Itself. So couple images that go along with it. Hopefully. We'll see what comes of this. Ironically to patent goes onto lay a possible folding vice that could be bent in two different places called z full display without breaking thanks to whatever sounds like a smaller number of layers required. When building screen of the device now, we're not display manufacturing experts verges who has this article written. But it's not clear whether Google would ever build such a thing or why we'd want of z full, but survivability of folding phones, definitely still open question. We're still early on in stages of bendable technology, especially when it comes to displays Samsung's. Galaxy fold is rated to survive hundreds of thousands of folds while gorilla glass manufacturer. Corning is of upping glass screen. It can be folded, and it hosts will be more durable than existing plastic solutions. Now, it's important to mention that Google Patent doesn't even mention the word phone once instead of refers how to display could be used by modern computing devices. It sounds like we're talking about. Phones, but it could refer tablets, possibly, even laptops consuming still working on tablets and laptops. Any more apparently decided oh, look tablet moon, maybe two Chromebook Dutta interest in full phones has so far focused on the software aspect of their design. It added support for foldable displays an Android last year and also worked with Samsung to ensure that Android would work as a galaxy folds operating system. Glee foldable phones are important to the future of Android. Google has to be interested in both hardware as well. As the software.
