Google has finally confirmed the existence of the Pixel Fold after months of rumours and speculation surrounding their first foldable device.
Google will likely launch the Pixel Fold, the latest foldable smartphone to hit the market, at their I/O 2023 conference scheduled for next week.
However, Google hasn’t revealed any specific details about the gadget. Instead, a quick teaser video shows a full-size outside display on a phone that folds up in the same way as Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold smartphones.
The camera bar on the rear is comparable to earlier Pixel smartphones, but it’s not as conspicuous, as seen by leaked marketing materials and even a hands-on video.
According to CNBC, the Pixel Fold will be a 5.8-inch phone that folds out into a 7.6-inch tablet. It will apparently include a Google Tensor G2 CPU, weigh 10 ounces, have “the most durable hinge on a foldable,” and cost more over $1,700. The pricing of Samsung’s latest foldable, the Z Fold 4, is $1,799.
Google didn’t debut the Fold in 2022, and it didn’t make the cut at last year’s I/O.
Rumours concerning its release haven’t stopped in the year since.
Google has concentrated on training Android developers how to make their apps function on foldable devices and bigger displays, which might pay off with the release of this gadget and the new Pixel Tablet next week.
The new footage is consistent with previously released Pixel Fold photos. According to the leaked specifications, Google is planning to construct a strong hinge for the tablet.
When folded, experts estimate that the secondary screen of the Pixel Fold will be 5.80 inches in size, while the primary and larger screen could be 7.60 inches.
However, the bezels around the primary display appear to be quite thick.
