Google won today’s game against the leakers. The Google Pixel Fold was presented for the first time by the business. This is actually the first time the business has ever used the term “Pixel Fold” in any official capacity.
The Google Pixel Fold debut event will take place at Google I/O 2023 on May 10, as anticipated. The Pixel Fold will officially launch next week, however the company did not specify a price or a start date for availability.
The Pixel Fold is depicted in the still image up top, and it fits all the stories we’ve heard thus far extremely well. The tweet from Google, however, demonstrates animations of the phone unfolding.
The Pixel Fold is depicted in the still image above, which accords quite well with all the speculations we have heard thus far. As you can see in the tweet below, Google also displayed animations of the phone unfolding. While May 4 is celebrated as an unofficial Star Wars holiday all around the world, the tweet’s clever message makes a play on the phrase “May The Force Be With You.”
Along with the tweet, the company also published a new Pixel Fold page at the Google Store. This page reveals the Google Pixel Fold launch details and gives folks interested in getting one the ability to sign up for alerts about its availability.
What else do we know about the Google Pixel Fold launch?
We can be sure that Google will introduce the Pixel Fold and Google Pixel 7a at Google I/O. There is a good probability that the Pixel Tablet will also make its formal debut, but Google hasn’t said anything about that just yet.
Several of the same features seen in the Pixel 7 Pro will probably also be found in the Pixel Fold. A triple-lens rear camera with wide, ultrawide, and telephoto lenses, the Tensor G2 SoC, a ton of Memory, a ton of storage, wireless charging, and more would be included. Of course, with all that power and the foldable design, the Pixel Fold will probably be incredibly pricey. As of now, reports point to a starting price of $1,799, the same as Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4.
