At the launch of the Google Pixel 7, the Google Pixel 7 Pro, and the Google Pixel Watch, there was no official mention of the Google Pixel Fold, but as a new leak shows, there''s evident a foldable phone by Google going our way soon.
People over at 91mobiles (opens in a new tab) who are accurate with predictions have often than not had access to several features for the foldable, including information about the size and shape of the device, as well as some display and camera details.
The screens are apparently being shipped from Samsung (as per previous reports) and will have a resolution of 2208 x 1840. The display is said to boast a maximum brightness of 1,200 nits and a turnaround rate of 120 Hz. Despite the fact, the total dimensions of the unfolded device are reported to be 123 mm x 148 mm.
The Pixel Fold is said to be displaying a front camera composed of Sony IMX787 main (64MP) ultra-wide, and S5K3J1 (10MP) cameras. The inside display camera reportedly uses a Sony IMX355 (8MP) sensor, which also includes a S5K3J1 (10MP).
Some of these sensor specifications have been previously mentioned, but as we move towards the launch of Pixel Fold, the details are beginning to come together from several sources, which, for one, makes it more probable that they are really accurate.
The foldable phone is expected to make its debut sometime during 2023 (after originally being rumored for 2022) as always, the price will be crucial, and somewhere in the region of $1,400 (environ 1,255 / AU$2,260).
Analysis: this foldable comes into focus
We''ve been hearing that Google is working on a foldable phone for a long time now (although we''re not in Apple Car territory in terms of longevity) Considering the frequency of leaks we''re currently hearing, it appears that a launch is coming close.
Samsung''s Galaxy Z Fold 4 will feature its fourth display, which is well-known in terms of display. Then there''s Google''s Pixel hardware line, which demonstrates that the company is serious about increasing the number of devices it has to offer.
While foldable phones are currently hardly mainstream, they are slowly becoming a common sight and as prices continue to fall as the technology becomes cheaper, that trend is only going to go in one direction. It''s like the right time for Google to get involved and give Pixel users a premium-level offering.
Apple is preparing to take its time when it comes to launching a folding phone, possibly waiting for the technology to become even cheaper and more reliable.
