Folding mobiles seem to be in fashion, since in the last year we have been able to witness how different manufacturers have opted for these designs. Among them, Samsung with its Z Fold and Z Flip models, or Xiaomi with its next Mi MIX Fold. So it is not surprising that more and more terminal brands decide to bet on these folding designs for your mobiles.
One of the latest manufacturers to join this idea has been Google, since after the official presentation of the first beta of Android 12 in the first day of Google I / O 2021, It not only brought us an immense amount of news at the software level. Since information has been discovered that has been in the air since February, when the news broke that they had patented a folding mobile design.
A foldable Google Pixel

Among them, the Pixel 5a 5G and 6, although they have not been the most outstanding, since details such as their designs and characteristics had been known. The most striking thing has been that Google will release, in the not too distant future, his first folding mobile.
And we are talking about a not too distant future, basically, because the first beta of Android 12 It kept inside the different names and model numbers of the Google Pixel that will come out throughout this 2021, as reported by 9to5Google.

One of the first details that has begun to be rumored is about the panel that will be mounted on this folding terminal from Google. The foldable Pixel is expected to feature a 7.6-inch OLED panel and that it is manufactured by Samsung.
