Google hasn’t yet affirmed any details about its much-rumoured Pixel Fold phone, however, numerous recent leaks have uncovered a portion of its important details. Google stayed tightlipped about its first-gen foldable at its ‘Made by Google’ event, choosing to focus on the Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro and Pixel Watch instead. In any case, various sources believe that the device is in the works and is in fact, fairly close to launch.

Apparently, the so-called Pixel Fold will be similar in design to the Galaxy Fold series, to the extent that it will unfurl into a tablet. In a communiqué to 91mobiles, coder and noted tipster Kuba Wojciechowski as of late claimed that the folding display on the smartphone will have a resolution of 2,208 x 1,840 pixels and measure 123 × 148 mm. It will be a 7.58-inch panel when unfurled, it comes with a 5:6 aspect ratio and a 380ppi pixel density. The specific refresh rate is not clear, however, it is expected to be higher than 60Hz and might go up to 120Hz. Average brightness will reportedly be rated at 800 nits and max out at 1,200 nits. The report also claims that both the displays on the Pixel Fold will be supplied by Samsung.

Wojciechowski had before uncovered information about the Pixel Fold’s camera, he claimed that the phone will ship with 5 cameras altogether, including 3 at the back and 2 selfie cameras for the two displays. As indicated by the tipster, the Pixel Fold might come with 50MP Sony IMX787 primary sensor, a 12MP Sony IMX386 ultra-wide shooter, and a 10MP Samsung S5K3J1 telephoto camera.

Google Pixel Fold Coming In 2023?

The smartphone was expected to drop this year, yet multiple delays mean it is presently only expected to show up at some point in 2023. In the meantime, Google is said to be moving a portion of its high-end smartphone production from China to Vietnam, yet the Pixel Fold will apparently still be made in China due to its complicated manufacturing process and local availability of components, such as the hinges and foldable displays.
