Google has long been said to be working on a foldable-display Pixel smartphone. Reports in the past have hinted towards the company launching its foldable Pixel smartphone in 2021. However, Google has maintained that it is in no rush to develop such a technology.

“Google has also experimented with the foldable form...But Google isn't in a rush to get a folding product to market," Mario Queiroz, who leads the development of Pixel phones, had said ahead of the Google I/O 2020 developer conference.

Now, a new report suggests that Google's foldable Pixel smartphone may be on track to arrive in late 2021. Korean site The Elec reports that Samsung's subsidiary, Samsung Display will start the production of foldable OLED panels for Google, Vivo and Xiaomi in October this year.

If reports are to be believed, Google's foldable display Pixel smartphone will come with a 7.6-inch folding display panel, while Vivo's foldable display smartphone will feature an 8-inch primary display and a 6.5-inch outer display.
