Google Pixel Fold in the news

ts Google Pixel Fold Introduction

Google moves into foldables with introduction Pixel Fold

Phone news ·

The search engine giant from Mountain View announced its first-ever foldable during Google I/O 2023. Google states the book-like Pixel Fold has the best zoom camera of all foldables.

The introduction of the Pixel Fold has been expected for a while, but during Google I/O, the search giant finally unfolded its plans. The Pixel Fold opens like a book but is less tall and, at the same time, wider than Samsung's Galaxy Fold 4. The Pixel Fold uses a folding Samsung screen.

7.6-inch screen from Samsung

The device is equipped with a Tensor G2 chipset, promising to be as powerful as the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. Inside we find a large 7.6-inch display with a 6:5 ratio. The screen displays motion smoothly up to 120Hz and can display up to 1450 nits bright. Google uses a Samsung display with Ultra Thin Glass. Like Samsung foldables, the fold is visible and tactile.

The Pixel Fold can fold completely flat thanks to a proprietary hinge made of polished steel alloy. Outside sits a 5.8-inch screen with FHD+ resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. Here, peak brightness goes to an impressive 1550 nits. In addition, Google has modified Android such that apps opened on the outer screen automatically continue on the big screen when you unfold the device.

Best zoom on a foldables

Google is trying to differentiate itself from other foldable, particularly on the camera. According to Google, this is the best camera phone that can be folded. Thus, there is 5x optical zoom thanks to a periscope lens, and images become even sharper thanks to Google's software. The primary camera counts 48 megapixels with a 1/2" large sensor and f/1.7 wide lens. In addition, it features optical image stabilization (OIS) and CLAF. The latter is presumably a reference to laser autofocus.

Like other Pixel phones, the camera of the Pixel Fold is equipped with Magic Eraser and Photo Unblur. These allow you to post-process photos by buffing out unwanted objects or people.

Waiting for Android 14

Google appears to be saving some foldable features until Android 14. For example, that version will get a mode where the outer screen can display translated text, Dual Screen interpreter. But Android already has features to make the most of the extra screen size. Most of these, however, we saw earlier in the competition.

Google Pixel Fold price and availability

Pixel Fold price

Like many other foldables, the Google Pixel Fold gets a hefty starting price. Google asks $1,799 for one in the US, UK, and Germany. For now, the device is also only available there. When and if other countries will follow remains to be seen. That will undoubtedly depend on how successful sales are.


ts Google Pixel Fold Official Teaser

Google reports pre-announcement Pixel Fold and shows design

Phone news ·

Rather unexpectedly, Google has already shown off the Pixel Fold. Via a tweet, Google sent an image of the first foldable from Mountain View. The device is not officially expected until Google I/O, which starts this year on May 10.

"May The Fold Be With You" is how Google revealed the Pixel Fold. In the same tweet, Google also reports that we won't hear more from it until May 10, but the video shows it in all its glory and from every angle. These are the better teasers.

Since so much of the , Google Pixel Fold had already been leaked by now, the video above doesn't teach us much new. The 8-second video does not mention any specifications.

Own design

Vergelen with Samsung's Fold 4, the Pixel Fold appears to be a bit wider when folded. That makes it slightly more manageable when closed. Inside, the Fold features fairly wide-screen bezels, something we rarely see these days.

We look forward to hearing from Google on May 10 about the device's specifications. And how much the device will cost. According to rumors, the starting price is not soft, but that is currently true for any foldable.

First press renders of Google Pixel Fold emerge

Rumors ·

We had already seen some footage of the Google Pixel Fold, by no official material until now. However, thanks to Evan Blass, we now have the first press material of Google's first foldable.

Until now, we weren't impressed with the Pixel Fold. The device has thick screen bezels, making it look dated. Yet, in the images below, the device looks quite attractive. Furthermore, Evan points out the advantage of large screen bezels; you have room to rest a finger.

Specifications Pixel Fold

There are no thick screen bezels on the outside. Instead, we see thin bezels there with strongly rounded corners. According to Blass, the front screen measures 5.8 inches with a resolution of 2092 x 1080 pixels, a 120Hz display, and 1550 peak brightness. In other words, decent specs for a display.

The inside screen has a diagonal of 7.6 inches, the same size as that of the Samsung Fold 4. The resolution reaches 2208 x 1840 pixels with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1450 peak brightness—no camera behind the display here, but an old-fashioned one above it.

Pixel Fold cameras

On the camera front, according to Evan, we should expect a 48+10.8+10.8MP setup with the highest megapixels belonging to the primary camera. The other two cameras are a 121.1° ultra-wide angle and a 5x telephoto lens. The front selfie camera counts an unusual 9.5 megapixels, and inside a more regular 8 megapixels.

The Google Pixel Fold uses a familiar chipset; the Tensor G2 that we also find in the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. It is possible that the Tensor G3 is not ready yet and will only debut in the Pixel 8.

The device will also get IPX8 waterproofing, a 4812 mAh large battery, and will come out in Obsidian Black and Porcelain White. The announcement will likely occur on May 10 during Google's annual I/O event.

Foldable Google Pixel Fold shows off on video

Rumors ·

A video has surfaced in which the Google Pixel Fold can be seen. This is the first time we see Google's foldable in action, and in the process, we also get the main specifications.

Rumors of the Pixel Fold are now well underway. Usually, this is a sign that an announcement is imminent. Google is holding its annual I/O event on May 10. This is traditionally where the next Android release is showcased, but new products are sometimes announced as well.

This year possible for the Pixel Fold and Google Pixel 7a. For the first time, a video has appeared showing the Pixel Fold. We already largely knew what it would look like thanks to published renders.

First generation foldable

It is clear from the video that Google's first foldable will not win any beauty awards. The inner screen looks somewhat "first generation" and reminiscent of the first Galaxy Fold. The screen has relatively thick bezels, especially at the top and bottom. There is even enough space to accommodate the selfie camera.

Although the device is briefly folded, we only glimpse the front shortly. There we see a single selfie camera at the top center of the screen. The edges are rounded and look slightly matte. Unfortunately, we don't get to see the back.

Pixel Fold specifications

A recent post from insider Yogesh Brar tells us that the Google Pixel Fold has the following specifications:

  • 7.6-inch AMOLED screen inside with QXGA+ resolution and 120Hz display
  • 5.8-inch AMOLED screen outside with HD+ resolution and 120Hz display
  • Google Tensor G2 processor with 12GB of RAM memory
  • Versions with 256 or 512GB of storage
  • 48MP main, 10.8MP wide angle and 10.8MP telephoto camera
  • 8MP selfie camera inside
  • 9.5MP selfie camera outside
  • Android 13
  • 4500 mAh battery with 23W fast charging

Whether all this justifies the suggested suggested suggested retail price of $1,799.99 remains to be seen. Unfortunately, Google is known for often launching products with teething problems, but if a product has a price tag this high, it cannot use any problems.

Images of pricey Google Pixel Fold appeared

Rumors ·

With great caution, we bring you more information about Google's foldable phone. The device that was expected and then was supposedly canceled. So whether the information below is accurate remains to be seen, but we don't want to keep it from you either.

This news comes from FrontPageTech. This publication doesn't have a foolproof reputation, so read further with caution. They claim the Google Pixel Fold is real and resembles Samsung's Fold4.

This is what the Google Pixel Fold would look like

Google is said to be considering a book shape with a secondary screen on the outside and a foldable larger screen inside. FPT fails to mention how big this is. It does say that the Pixel Fold will come out in two colors; Chalk (white) and Obsidian (black). And for the astronomical amount of 1799 US dollars. A launch date is also mentioned; May 2023.

Pixel Fold specifications

Many more specifications are not given. So we will have to make do mainly with the footage. In it, we see a camera bar that is not applied to the full width but is more on the back. Google's solution previously always ensures that phones do not wobble on the table, but that does not apply to this Fold when you have it unfolded.

The Pixel Fold will have visible bezels inside

We see what looks like three different cameras. What functions they have, we don't know (yet). What else stands out is the relatively large screen bezels of the foldable screen. While those on competitor Samsung are still tight against the edge, Google applies a visible bezel above and below.

Pixel Fold announcement

The source goes on to mention that the Google Pixel Fold feels remarkably heavy. Other manufacturers of foldable phones are also struggling to bring down the weight. A quarter of a kilo is no exception; you start noticing that over time when you're holding it. Whether Google manages to change this remains to be seen.

Perhaps Google will announce the Fold during Google I/O. That event is always held in May, the month the source mentions as a possible launch date.


ts Pixel Fold 9to5 Google

"Google Pixel Fold gets downgraded 12.2MP camera"

Rumors ·

The Google Pixel Fold, the company's first foldable device, expected in 2022, will not get the same powerful camera as on the Pixel 6. The Pixel Fold has to make do with the same camera sensor as the Pixel 5.

In itself, this is not a drama, because the Pixel 5 shoots pretty good photos. But the Pixel 6 with its 50MP Samsung GN1 sensor delivers much better results, so it's still a shame. Reason why Google according to 9to5Google still chooses the older 12.2MP sensor is the thickness of it.

If the Google Pixel Fold indeed has a similar design to Samsung's Fold 3 then the 2 parts cannot be too thick . The camera stripe on the Pixel 6 sticks out quite a bit and isn't quite suitable for a foldable. The two parts should preferably fold flat against each other. Although Microsoft and the Surface Duo 2 think otherwise.

Pipit vs Passport

The source of this story thinks it knows that Google is using the 12.2 MP sensor from the Pixel 5 by snooping through the source code of the Pixel camera app. In it, there would be a mention to "Pipit". A previously unknown code name. Previously, "Passport" was used to refer to Google's first foldable Pixel. Whether these are two different foldables or the same device is still unclear.

Android 12L

Besides a 12.2 megapixel main camera, the Pixel Fold has another 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera and two 8 megapixel cameras, one inside and one on the outside. Whether this information is correct remains to be seen. Google recently announced Android 12L which is particularly meant for foldables. During the announcement it wrote that it is now waiting for the "next wave of foldables" for early 2022.
