Motorola, or better say Lenovo, doesn’t want to be left behind in the race for the first foldable smartphone, hence the new patent the company filed recently. Although the patent that shows a smartphone that unfolds into a tablet was filed back in September 2016, it was approved in March 2018.
Designing a truly foldable smartphone is definitely a tremendous task, not to mention that developing one that’s ready for mass market is even harder, so Motorola working on a device that can switch from a smartphone to a tablet factor seems close to impossible.

It appears that Samsung has given the green light to its “foldable smartphone” project and has decided that the best release window for the device would be the one that coincides with the Galaxy S10’s announcement.
