Google is reportedly planning to launch its own foldable smartphone ‘Pixel Fold’ next year. The design of the foldable smartphone will be similar to that of Oppo’s Find N and will be powered by a Tensor chipset. Google may overtake Apple in terms of launching a foldable phone as the race intensifies. Samsung is one of the leading mobile brands that have a wide range of foldable devices. Other brands like Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo and Motorola have also launched their foldable devices.
The patent was originally filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in 2021 but was published earlier this week, according to 91Mobiles, which also shared pictures of the foldable Pixel phone. The phone could look similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, denying previous leaks that it could look like an Oppo Find N foldable phone. The similarity with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 also means the Google Pixel Fold, which as it is being said now, will be a bigger and probably a cumbersome phone.
Google Pixel Fold Display
The Google Pixel Fold is likely to feature Samsung’s in-house display (both primary and secondary). The internal folding display is expected to offer a resolution of 1840×2208 pixels and measure 123mm x 148mm. In terms of brightness, the smartphone is expected to offer a peak brightness of 1200 nits and an average of 800 nits. Also Read – Google Pixel 7 First Impressions: The camera prowess is back. Additionally, the internal foldable display of the smartphone is expected to come with support for high refresh rate. According to developer Kuba Wojciechowski, the higher refresh rate can go up to 120Hz.
Google Pixel Fold Camera
Instead of using the Samsung GN1 sensor present on the Pixel 7 series, the Pixel Fold may use the 12.2-megapixel Sony IMX363 sensor that is used as the main camera on the Pixel 6a. Additional cameras on the Pixel Fold are expected to include a 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 ultrawide sensor and an 8-megapixel Sony IMX355s sensor. The front camera, in particular, is rumored to be fixed on the bezel instead of the chin above or below the display.
Google Pixel Fold Processor
The Pixel Fold could be powered by Google’s Tensor chipset and come with support for a physical SIM card and an eSIM. The foldable has not yet been officially confirmed by Google.
