The Google Pixel Fold has been a bit of a myth up until this point. Last year, many were expecting to see a foldable from Google, but nothing happened in the end as it was reportedly cancelled. Then, we saw news about it being back in the Google pipeline, with some early renders of it appearing online too. Now, we’ve got even more images of the supposed Pixel Fold, along with more details about the hardware it’s packing.
As revealed by serial leakster Onleaks, the Pixel Fold is set to feature a 5.79-inch cover display in a very smartphone-like aspect ratio, in total contrast to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 that has the tall and almost awkward cover display. In fact, the Pixel Fold also seems to unfold into a very tablet-like inner display too, with its 7.69-inch main display having a pretty traditional tablet aspect ratio to it, unlike the Oppo Find N from last year that unfolded into a square display. When unfolded, the Pixel Fold measures roughly 158.7 x 139.7 x 5.7mm.
Other leaked specs include the Pixel Fold being powered by the Google Tensor G2 processor, the same one in the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. The main camera setup meanwhile will have a camera island bump rather than a bar like the Pixel 7 series, but it keeps the same design philosophy as the mainstream Pixel phones at least. It packs a triple rear camera setup but not exactly the same main, ultrawide and telephoto shooters from the Pixel 7 Pro due to space constraints. It’s also expected to pack stereo speakers, a large battery and stylus support too. The Pixel Fold is expected to come in silver and black colourways.
It’s all still rumours for now of course, so do take them with a pinch of salt for now. However, if these leaks are true the Google Pixel Fold could be the first major foldable smartphone not from China to truly compete against the Galaxy Z Fold lineup from Samsung. That will depend on just how many regions it’ll be available in though, as Google has traditionally kept their hardware being sold in just a handful of places, which also doesn’t include Malaysia.
