As shown by the images published in the patent document, when folded, the smartphone of the Google a little empty space in front of the folded part, something similar to what happens with some models of the Microsoft Surface Book.

There is still little information on Google’s endeavor, and it is never too much to point out that this is a patent, so it is not certain that this device will not even see the light of day at some point. But like Xiaomi, LG and perhaps Oppo are some of the companies that are expected to release folding over the next few months; it’s natural to think that the web search engine giant also follows a similar path.
