- Google files patent for “Z-fold display”.
- The patent does not clearly say where the display will be used.
- Google has only been associated with foldable phones only in terms of software support.
Google has filed a patent application that suggests that the search engine giant is exploring an opportunity with foldable display technology. The filing mentions a method of constructing an OLED panel that can be bent repeatedly and used in a “modern computing device.” Interestingly, the company hasn’t used the word “phone” in the patent, which could mean that the company may not be eying the manufacture of a foldable phone. In fact, Google has not manufactured its own phone, but this could change.
