there’s news about Google’s foldable smartphone

Absent from recent Google meetings, the foldable Pixel resurfaces. New leaks remind us of what should become the first folding smartphone of the US giant.

The Google Pixel Fold hasn’t been formalized yet, so we even thought it was abandoned. While the American giant has just launched its Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, the foldable smartphone is popping up again. In recent months there have been rumors about the technical data sheet, the design and even the name. The first foldable Google Pixel, which could be called the Pixel Notepad, would compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4.

According to information from developer Kuba Wojciechowski and the 91mobiles site, Google would also rely on the South Korean company’s tiles. Samsung’s choice should come as no surprise, as the manufacturer has demonstrated its know-how on devices such as the Galaxy Z Fold 4 or the Galaxy Z Flip 4.

The internal screen of the Pixel Fold would have dimensions of 123 x 148 mm and would display a definition of 1,840 x 2,208 pixels. However, according to the developer, this panel would go up to 1,200 nits, with an average brightness of 800 nits. On the other hand, it is uncertain whether the screen supports a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, but a “high” refresh rate is to be expected.

This new leak is also a reminder that the Pixel Fold would be codenamed “Felix” internally. Already last September Kuba Wojciechowski was talking about the photographic component of this future device. The Pixel Fold would have three cameras on the back; a 50 megapixel Sony IMX787 main sensor, a 12 megapixel IMX386 ultra wide angle lens and a 10.87 megapixel telephoto lens (Samsung S5K3J1). The selfie camera is said to be identical to that of the Pixel 6; that is an 8 megapixel Sony IMX355 sensor.

When will Pixel Fold be launched?

Although the leaks are becoming more and more persistent, formalization is still missing. Google could unveil its foldable smartphone in the first quarter of 2023; unless the Mountain View giant decides to wait until May and its Google I / O event. For now the Californian company knows how to keep the secret and it is not so common. However, much of this information comes from the Android 13 code. We also know that the American giant is working to adapt its mobile operating system to foldable screens.
