Google‘s highly-anticipated Pixel Fold seems to still be on track for a 2021 reveal. Since its leak last August, the company has set its sights on releasing its first-ever folding Pixel phone later this year. Samsung has also announced that it will begin its production on their own OLED folding panels this October for Vivo, Xiaomi and Google’s forthcoming foldable phones.

Though there is not an exact date as to when Google will unveil their new technology, the folding phone was always in its repertoire. In 2019, it published patent applications for Google’s own folding screens, confirming that the company has been toying with prototyping them for quite a while.

9to5Google reportedly spotted the codename “Passport” which Google uses for its foldable, in the Andorid 12’s code. Other codenames are beleived to be referencing the upcoming Pixel 5a 5G and the Pixel 6.

TheElec says that Google will release a single 7.6-inch panel that folds inward, while competitors like Vivo are set to release a phone with an 8-inch main screen and a 6.5-inch outer display. There is currently no word on Xiaomi’s design yet.

It still remains to be seen whether or not Google’s Pixel Fold display will be entirely designed by the company.

In other tech news, Samsung has created an electronic skin that can stretch up to 30 percent.
