Leaked info reveals pricing and renders of the Google Pixel Fold

Google’s first foldable smartphone has been the subject of several rumors for a long time now. However, a fresh rumor from today claims that it will be dubbed Pixel Fold.

One of “Google’s most secretive projects ever” is reportedly still in the works and is expected to debut in May alongside the Pixel Tablet. Given that I/O, Google’s annual developer conference, always takes place in May, we speculatively predict a reveal there. There will be two color variations, called Chalk (often known as white) and Obsidian by Google (aka black).

Numerous renderings of the smartphone in both colors have surfaced, reconstructed using 3D renders and “other stuff,” but no specifications this time.

However, according to the anonymous insiders that helped this story become a reality, the Pixel Fold would have “normal Pixel-esque performance” and the Pixel flagship camera. The equipment is fairly hefty, according to one source, but the crucial “compared to what?” the question was left unanswered.

The cost of the Pixel Fold has also been disclosed: $1,799. That’s the exact price at which Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold4 first went on sale in the US back in August, and we bring it up since it will be the Pixel Fold’s major rival moving forward. However, the Galaxy Z Fold4 will undoubtedly enjoy a tonne of discounts by the time Google’s foldable eventually hits the market, so it is still unclear if the Pixel Fold will provide enough unique selling factors to attract customers.

Because it doesn’t extend all the way to the corners, the Pixel Fold’s “camera bar” is less roomy than the ones on the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. However, it’s still noticeable enough and somehow distinguishes this phone as a Pixel right away. Two 9.5 MP selfie cameras are present—one is housed in the hole cut out of the outer screen and the other is located on the right side of the inner screen’s oddly large top bezel.

There are two speakers—one on top and one on bottom—and a fingerprint scanner built into the power button. This leak just confirms that, but it only makes sense that the Pixel Fold would be equipped with a Tensor chipset.
