The Google Pixel Fold is the product that was released after months of rumors and discussion regarding its features. On Wednesday, Google unveiled its first foldable gadget at the Google I/O 2023 event. The Tensor G2 sensor is a proprietary component of the company’s first foldable device.
The phone features three cameras on the back and comes with Android 13 out of the box. The Google Pixel Fold will directly compete with Samsung’s and Oppo’s foldable devices thanks to its 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage capacity.
Everything we currently know about the Google Pixel Fold and the search engine giant’s foldable goals is included below.
Google Pixel Fold: Specs
The Tensor G2 processor powering the Pixel Fold is unquestionably the same one seen in the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. There will be two storage options: 256GB and 512GB, each with 12GB of RAM.
Ross Young, a display specialist, predicted in May 2022 that the Pixel Fold will have a 5.8-inch OLED cover panel and “will have a wider aspect ratio than the Samsung 6.19-inch Fold 4”. FrontPageTech’s simulations clearly support this prediction. A 7.6-inch OLED panel is thought to be used for the inside display. While the inside panel will have a resolution of 2208 x 1840, the external display will have a resolution of 2092 x 1080.
However, it won’t be just any OLED panel. The Elec claims that the Pixel Fold’s panel might be among the first to use Samsung panel’s M13 screen. This would be a screen that is more sophisticated than the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s M12 technology, perhaps giving the Pixel Fold a Pixel Fold with a superior overall display quality. Additionally, the inner and outer screens will very certainly also feature refresh rates of 120Hz.
The Google Pixel Fold should have a great camera, despite the fact that Pixels aren’t known for having extended battery lives. The “Pixel flagship camera” setup that FrontPageTech’s source claims the Pixel Fold will have is corroborated by other leaks.
Android researcher Kuba Wojciechowski found code in an Android 13 beta that points to the Pixel Fold having a 64MP Sony IMX787 sensor as its main camera on the back, along with a 10MP telephoto camera and a 12MP ultra-wide camera. The camera system will, however, reportedly comprise a 48MP primary camera, a 10.8MP ultrawide camera, and a 10.8MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom, according to a subsequent leak from Jon Prosser.
Google Pixel Fold: Price
The two hues, Porcelain and Obsidian, are now available for pre-order in the US for $1,799, and it will go on sale early next month. You will receive a free Pixel Watch if you place a pre-order. The Pixel Fold will eventually be available for purchase through the Google Store in Germany, Japan, and the UK but not in any other nations where Google sells its other smartphones. However, it may still reach distant lands through independent shops.
Foldable smartphones are a completely new breed of smartphone. It is reasonable to anticipate a higher pricing given that this is Google’s first folding phone.
Google Pixel Fold: Release date
Before a few days before Google I/O 2023, Google never acknowledged that it was working on the Google Pixel Fold, despite the rumors persisting for more than a year. The secret is officially out, and we will soon be able to get our hands on Google’s first foldable, thanks to this year’s developer conference. We can only hope that additional foldables from other manufacturers will enter the US as a result; after all, greater competition is always a good thing.
