Alleged Google Pixel Fold renders, leaked price and launch date: check the details

Google is reportedly working on a foldable phone. The rumor mill has been abuzz with speculation about its features and specs. Added to the list is a new leak that the smartphone could be called Pixel Fold. A report by FrontPageTech also shares alleged renders of the upcoming smartphone. The leaked images show Google’s foldable phone in black and silver color options.

A camera cutout can be seen placed on the outer screen. On the back, there’s a triple-camera setup paired with an LED flash. The camera bar, however, doesn’t go all the way to the edges like the existing Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. The power button can be seen placed on the side. It appears to be mounted with a fingerprint scanner on top.

There are two speakers on the phone. One of them is placed on the upper edge, while the other is placed on the lower edge. The SIM tray also appears to be placed at the bottom of the phone. The other half of the bottom edge can be seen with a USB Type-C port.

According to the report, the smartphone may have a price tag of $1,799, which roughly translates to 1.45 lakh. Google Pixel Fold is said to be powered by Google’s own Tensor chipset. However, it’s likely to ship with Android 13L – Google’s custom operating system for foldable phones and tablets.

The next Google Pixel Fold is expected to arrive in May 2023. However, Google has yet to officially confirm the handset.

Meanwhile, the affordable Pixel 7a is said to be codenamed “lynx”. According to reliable tipster Kuba Wojciechowski, the smartphone may come with plenty of upgrades over its Pixel 6a predecessor. The handset is expected to feature a 64MP Sony IMX787 main sensor and an IMX712 wide-angle lens. The current Pixel 6a is equipped with a 12.2-megapixel Sony IMX636 sensor. Moreover, Google Pixel 7a would also be compatible with wireless charging. The existing Pixel 6a only offers wired charging. The upcoming Pixel 7a would come with a 1080-pixel display with a 90Hz refresh rate.
