Google has finally announced the release of its first-ever foldable phone, the Pixel Fold, and it's set to make waves in the tech world. The big reveal is scheduled for May 10th at Google I/O 2023, where Google is expected to reveal the device's full specs.
A brief teaser video gives us a glimpse of the Pixel Fold, showing off its full-size outer display and its foldable design, which is similar to Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold devices. The phone's camera bar is also similar to other Pixel devices, but it's less prominent, according to leaked marketing materials and hands-on videos.
The Pixel Fold is rumored to have a 5.8-inch screen that folds out into a 7.6-inch tablet, and it's reportedly equipped with a Google Tensor G2 processor, making it powerful and efficient. The device is also rumored to have a durable hinge, which is a crucial factor in any foldable phone, and it's expected to weigh around 10 ounces.
The price point for the Pixel Fold is expected to be over $1,700, which is similar to Samsung's latest foldable, the Z Fold 4, which launched at $1,799. However, we'll have to wait for Google I/O to get confirmation on the official price.
Despite rumors about the Pixel Fold's release, Google has remained tight-lipped about its first foldable phone, focusing instead on teaching Android developers to make their apps compatible with foldable devices and larger screens. This effort is likely to pay off next week when the Pixel Fold is launched, along with the new Pixel Tablet.
