Foldable smartphones are the flavour of the year for smartphone companies.

Several major phone manufacturers are scrambling to bring out foldable phones to rival the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, and now it seems Google is planning to enter the fray.

The search giant's not the only one trying to make a small foldable phone.

While only Samsung and Huawei have foldable phones that will hit the market soon, a succession of leaked patents suggest everyone from ZTE to Apple have plans to enter the market, and these handsets come in a range of designs from "clamshells" that fold down to "notebooks" that open up.

We'll keep you updated with all the leaks, rumors and news about Google's foldable, and all the other folding devices headed to the market.

The device is likely to have an inwardly foldable display

Whether this foldable Pixel phone from Google ever sees the light of day is of course unknown and to be honest, not expected but it is good to see Google at least doing the basic groundwork should they ever want to release a foldable Pixel. The Galaxy Fold was unveiled in two stages, in early November and mid-March, while the Huawei Mate X was announced at MWC a few days after the Fold. However, Google is also looking at the possibility of folding a display around two hinges, that would give the device a "Z-fold" aspect.

According to the patent application, the device is said to include a foldable display that folds inwards.

The patent explains how a foldable display would be built, which is very interesting considering that Google doesn't make displays of its own.

Foldable phones are certainly the talk of the town this year. The patent suggests that Google would not go for off-the-shelf parts, and it'll have particular requirements from display makers.

While most companies are focused on making a big foldable, it's nice to see that some companies are considering a compact form factor for this category.
