A rumor about Google’s folding phone has been hovering around us for a long time. If you love to stay updated with the tech world, you may have heard it. However, according to one of the world’s top leakers Ross Young, The folding phone of Google will be named Google Pixel Fold.
He also revealed the possible release of this phone very specifically. Being a supply chain expert, he always comes with some dependable tech updates. So, we can trust him because of all his past good records. He mentioned that Google will start making the panels soon.
As per him, the panel works will start from the mid of the year. That can be July, August, or September. If Google kicks off the panel making from early July, it is very possible to bring it to the market by the end of this year. Well, Ross Young is expecting that the Pixel Fold will release between October to December.
Here things go a little foggy or might be exciting for you. Because Pixel 7 will also release at the end of this year. So we are hoping for a grand event where the Pixel 7 series will launch alongside Pixel Fold. More specifically we can say the launch event would take place in October 2022.
We have some specs information as well. It will equip a 7.6-inch foldable OLED display. The camera section is pretty decent. According to dependable sources, the Pixel Fold will have a 12.2MP main and a 12MP ultrawide camera. There will be two 8MP selfie cameras.
The chipset will be an obvious Tensor chipset designed by Google. We think Google used the same chipset that powers up Pixel 6. Our expectation was a bit more. It could be Tensor 2. Because Pixel 7 will not come with an older chipset. If they use the same chipset as Pixel 7, it would be more satisfying.
However, with 12 gigs of RAM Pixel Fold will be a powerful phone. Perhaps not the top-notch, it’s a premium configuration though. So let’s cross our fingers and hope for the best. The big question is its affordability. Right now we have no idea what the price of Google Pixel Fold will be. It can be the most pricy Pixel phone ever.
