This year’s Google I/O 2023 will be interesting. The most anticipated Pixel Fold, Google’s first foldable phone will finally debut at the annual tech event. The company has officially made the announcement about the upcoming smartphone. The video teaser gives the first-ever official glimpse of the device.
Pixel Fold launch and design
The company took to Twitter and wrote “May the Fold be with you” to announce Pixel Fold’s upcoming launch. The device is set to make its debut on May 10 the day Google I/O 2023 annual conference begins.
The Pixel Fold is displayed in the teaser trailer, but Google hasn’t revealed any details about the phone’s specs. It features a design reminiscent of a book that we’ve already seen on Samsung Galaxy Fold devices. However, we are not surprised that the device resembles other Pixel devices because it has been widely leaked numerous times even before the company’s official announcement.
In any case, the Pixel design in its foldable form is as gorgeous and luxurious as ever. The gadget appears to have metallic frames and a glass back. The full-size outer display unfolds like the Galaxy Fold and sports a horizontally positioned triple back camera arrangement like the Pixel 7 series. However, the Pixel Fold’s camera unit is more refined because it is less obtrusive and has a more streamlined appearance. Additionally, there is a speaker and an LED flash.
Unlike Samsung’s Z Fold, it has rounded sides and a large cover display. There is a selfie camera situated on top and there are substantial side bezels. Furthermore, the Google Foldable phone will have a periscopic camera, which is once more absent from the Z Fold. It is said to have a 5X optical zoom.
Pixel Fold specifications expected
The leaks suggest that Pixel Fold could come in two colour options of black and silver. Additionally, the Google foldable phone might have a 7.6-inch internal display with a resolution of 1,840 x 2,208 pixels. The main display will also have a refresh rate of 120Hz and a pixel density of 380ppi. The exterior display is anticipated to include a 5.8-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 1,080 by 2,092 pixels, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, and a 17.4:9 aspect ratio. So the device will be smaller and fit into any pocket with ease.
The handset is said to be powered by Google’s own Tensor G2 SoC combined with a Titan M2 security chip, similar to the Pixel 7 Series.
The triple rear camera of the Fold may equip a 48-megapixel wide-angle sensor with an f/1.7 aperture, OIS, and CLAF. A 10.8-megapixel ultrawide lens with an f/2.2 aperture and 121-degree field of view might possibly be included in the camera unit. A 10.8-megapixel dual PD telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom and 20x Super Res Zoom will also be included. Selfies may be taken using an 8-megapixel inner selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture on the inside and an external 9.5-megapixel sensor with a 1.22 pm pixel width on the exterior.
Pixel Fold price expected
In terms of pricing Pixel Fold will be priced at $1,799 which translates to Rs 1,47,000 for the 12GB RAM with 256GB storage model. Whereas the 12GB RAM with 512GB storage option would cost $1919 which is about Rs 1,57,500.
