Google Patents Crazy Book-style Foldable Phone with Multiple Pages

A book with multiple displays is what Google engineers dream about.

Google confirmed earlier this year that the company is working on foldable phone and display prototypes. One of the ideas just surfaced in the WIPO Patent database.

The Google engineers describe their invention with: "A computing device includes memory configured for storing executable instructions, a processor configured for executing the instructions, a spine member, where the spine member includes the memory and the processor, and a plurality of display pages, each display page coupled at a first edge of the page to the spine member and having a second edge, opposite the first edge that is free to rotate about an axis defined by the spine member, wherein at least one page includes two separately controllable OLED displays on opposite sides of the page."

The drawings found in the patent show something resembling a children book with thick pages. There are four pages including the covers. Everything including the cover would be a display surface.

As Samsung and others struggle to even come to the market with a working single folding phone, we will not see Google's folding book phone anytime soon.
