The Google Pixel Fold is going to be Google’s very first foldable phone and it has just leaked in a generous set of renders, courtesy of Frontpagetech. There’s something like a dozen renders here and the inspiration is clear: either OPPO Find N or Galaxy Z Fold 4.
Since Samsung makes the CPU inside the Google Pixel Fold, I wouldn’t be surprised if they also made this phone. I have a theory of my own saying that Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold Lite has been rebranded to this device, but I may be wrong. I’m shocked to see the large bezels of the foldable screen, but apparently the top lip hosts a 9.5 MP selfie camera. The external selfie camera is also a 9.5 MP shooter. Available in black or white, the device will be launched in MAy 2023, at Google I/O 2023.
There’s even a price leaked, $1799, which is hefty and the equal of the price paid for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 in USA. The camera design at the back feels a bit like the Google Pixel 6 or 7 one, but without connecting the camera module to the metal sides. I also see no trace of a periscope telephoto camera here, so we’re probably getting a 3X optical zoom tele shooter, a 50 MP main cam and a 50 MP ultrawide cam. The fingerprint sensor is integrated into the side Power button.
My biggest question is whether or not this device has stylus support and a Google Tensor CPU or not.
