Ever since Samsung debuted the first Galaxy Fold, there have been whispers and conjectures regarding a foldable phone created by Google. How would it appear? What would the price be? Is Google even considering developing a foldable Pixel?
After months of minor leaks and claims, the biggest Google Pixel Fold has finally surfaced. FrontPageTech, a website for the latest news on tech gadgets, revealed a ton of renderings revealing the Pixel Fold’s design on November 14. In conclusion, it seems fairly amazing.
We’ll start with the phone’s exterior. The front of the Pixel Fold features a sizable outer display that is substantially broader than the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s little cover screen. A hole-punch cutout with relatively thin bezels all around houses the 9.5MP front-facing camera of the Pixel Fold in addition to the outer screen.
A triple camera system is located on the rear and has a casing that is identical to the Google Pixel 7 Pro. Although the camera configuration isn’t confirmed, it is likely to be the same as the Pixel 7 Pro, with a 50MP primary camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, and a 48MP telephoto camera.
The Selling Point
A large tablet-like display that looks to be in landscape mode greets us when we open the Pixel Fold. The inner screen has very large bezels on the top and bottom, with the top bezel subtly concealing an additional 9.5MP camera for selfies and video chats. A USB-C charging port, speaker grills on the top and bottom frames, and a fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button are further design elements.
The Pixel Fold is shown in two colors: chalk and obsidian, both of which the Pixel Fold is expected to be offered at launch. Speaking of the Pixel Fold’s release, FrontPageTech predicts it will happen in May 2023 (probably during Google I/O the following year).
Is it affordable?
The pricing is another intriguing component of this disclosure. According to FrontPageTech, the Google Pixel Fold will cost $1,799. Although it costs a lot and is substantially more costly than the Pixel 7 or Pixel 7 Pro, it is comparable to other foldable phones. The starting price of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 is the same as that of the predecessor, the Fold 3: $1,799. At that price, Google won’t be innovating much, but it should also keep the Pixel Fold competitive with its main competition.
The take away
What is the main point to take away from all of this? The Pixel Fold looks fantastic, assuming these images are correct. It’s basically a Googleized version of the Oppo Find N, which is really fantastic. We may be in for a real treat if Google can create a foldable phone with top-notch cameras, along with its normal Pixel smarts owing to a Tensor chip, and support the entire thing with big-screen focused software with Android 13
