The Google Pixel Fold may have a selfie camera in the most unusual place


Google had previously confirmed its first smartwatch, the Pixel Watch. This put an end to the speculation around it, but there was another one that is still floating around. Google is reportedly working on its first foldable Pixel phone. It’s been more than two years since the first rumor about it surfaced, with the details being revealed later. The latest leak on the foldable Pixel phone talks about another important aspect: the camera placement.

According to the tipster who goes by Digital Chat Station on weiboThe alleged design of Google’s first foldable, dubbed Pixel Fold, will be somewhat of a mix of the Pixel 7 and Oppo Find N. The machine-translated post in English reveals that the main display will be relatively small which will fold inwards horizontally. The outer screen will come with a punch-hole in the centre, he said. However, the most interesting part might be the selfie camera.

According to him, the internal display of the Google Pixel Fold will get rid of any cutouts or notches. Instead, the Pixel Fold’s small selfie camera will be on the frame. It might remind you of the Nokia N9 or the early Xiaomi Mi MIX phones, which had a rather unusual selfie camera. But given that it’s Google, we can expect some bizarre ways the company may have thought of installing the camera.

A strange design? not necessary

Google hasn’t confirmed anything about the Pixel Fold, but there is speculation that a side-mounted selfie camera will be in line with the compact design of the device. Previous reports have suggested that the Pixel Fold will go for a smaller design, much like the Oppo Find N. Other foldable phones that have been available for years now are bulky and usually larger than regular smartphones. An alleged render of the Pixel Fold, which revealed that the foldable could be powered by Android 12L, also suggested a smaller design.

The latest leak doesn’t talk about anything else like the specifications of the Google Pixel Fold. However, given that we still have rumors about the Pixel Fold, this means that the phone could be in the making. It is only a matter of time before Google confirms the unusual way in which it previews its devices before launching them. It also makes sense on the part of Google, which is now under more pressure than ever to enter the foldable segment. Its rival Apple is also reportedly working on a foldable iPhone. The previous report said that the Pixel Fold would not launch until 2023.

The most unusual spot on the Google Pixel Fold could be the selfie camera, which first appeared on BGR India.
