Over the past year and a half, rumors have periodically surfaced on the network that Google will release its own foldable smartphone. There have also been rumors that the Pixel foldable will debut before the end of 2021 or very early 2022. But prominent analyst Ross Young dispelled the rumors by saying that the company has canceled the foldable smartphone.
Google Pixel foldable smartphone
The reason is simple, clear and logical. Allegedly, Google does not believe in its offspring; that it has the strength to compete with the Galaxy Z Fold 3. And the company does not agree to anything less, only success and no compromises. Realizing the futility of its attempts to compete with Samsung’s foldable smartphone; Google has canceled all orders for accessories for the Pixel Fold.
Naturally, nothing prevents the company from changing its mind. This is exactly what Ross Young points out. According to him, in the third quarter of 2022, the serial production of flexible panels for the folding Pixel will start. But the smartphone should be presented in the fourth quarter. Presumably, the premiere should be expected in October, the company’s usual month of premieres.
The foldable Pixel phone is rumored to feature a 120Hz flexible display, a Tensor chipset, Android 12L operating system, and a 16MP + 12.2MP dual rear camera setup. And in terms of its dimensions, it should be more compact than the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
