Is this our first real look at the Pixel Fold?
A massive leak Home Page Technology It’s meant to show off the final design of the Pixel Fold, plus some basic specs and pricing. It seems that this device, which has been the subject of rumors for three years, could potentially launch in May 2022.
According to Home Page Technology, various “incredibly astute sources” provided the information in this leak. To obscure the identities of these sources, Home Page Technology does not share Google’s official Pixel Fold images; however, the photos in this article are recreations of those images.
If these renderings are accurate, the Pixel Fold will inherit the “Robocop room viewfinder” of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 7. Otherwise it looks strikingly similar to Oppo’s foldable Find N. The outer screen has a beveled black edge, while the inner screen is quite wide (unlike the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, which has a relatively tall inner screen).
Today’s leak indicates that the Pixel Fold will use a side-mounted fingerprint reader, which makes more sense than an under-display sensor. It supports 5G and is supposedly quite heavy.
Also, judging by the render, the Pixel Fold offers a triple-camera setup with wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle, and telephoto lenses. These cameras could be identical to the ones on the Pixel 7 Pro, unless Google copies Samsung’s game plan and puts a bunch of degraded cameras on its foldable, I suppose.
But how much will it cost? Good, Home Page Technology says the Pixel Fold will have an incredible price of $1,799. I’d expect Google to aim a bit lower, but $1,799 still isn’t much of a surprise. After all, it’s the same price you’d pay for a Galaxy Z Fold 4.
Now, I’ve reported on Pixel Fold leaks since 2019 or 2020. And from experience, I suggest taking today’s leak with a grain of salt. There’s no point in getting your hopes up for something that may never be released. Even if today’s leak is accurate, Google could scrap the project (or push the release date back to 2024 to continue development).
