The Google Pixel Fold has been rumoured for a long time. Although the company hasn’t confirmed it, we’ve heard a lot about its potential hardware. The Pixel Fold’s status and debut date remain unknown.
The New York Times reports Google is “exploring a foldable for 2023.” The device’s release date has gone from “now” to “never.”
The Pixel Fold was expected to debut by the end of the year, but a new report says Google has delayed it until next year. The foldable phone could appear in 2023, according to a new claim.
But this report says that the company will still make its more complicated products in China. The report says that this is why the foldable phone will stay in China. Sources suggest Google wants to be close to Chinese manufacturers of hinge technology and foldable screens to make this phone.
Previous patents have shown that Google wants to use a design that looks like a book. Think of it like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, which has a screen on the outside that you can use when the phone is folded and a larger, bendable screen on the inside that you can use when you want a tablet-like experience. That’s a design that a lot of phone makers are using, but we don’t know yet what size this phone will be or if it will have any features that Samsung, Xiaomi, and Oppo don’t have yet.
