For nearly a year, the Google Pixel Fold has been rumoured. The foldable was supposed to be released last year, but the search engine giant reportedly postponed it owing to a shortage of components.
Google’s foldable Pixel project has been restarted, according to an exclusive report from Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC). He states that the business intends to begin mass manufacturing in Q3 of 2022, but that the phone would not be available until the fourth quarter of the year (October–December).
It's back! Looks like Google's foldable Pixel will start panel production in Q3'22 and launch in Q4'22.— Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) February 14, 2022
Other than these two dates, the tweet does not provide any other information. However, we do know that the Pixel Fold will compete against top-tier folding phones like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 based on prior reports. It will sport a 120Hz refresh rate and an LTPO OLED display for power efficiency.
A 12.2 megapixel Sony IMX363 sensor, a 12 megapixel Sony IMX386 sensor, and a pair of 8 megapixel Sony IMX355 sensors will make up the main camera configuration. The phone is likely to come pre-installed with Android 12L, which is the large-screen version of Android 12.
However, none of these reports have been verified, so take this information with a grain of salt for now.
