Its been a couple of years since the first appearance of foldable smartphones. However, there are some manufacturers that are yet to unveil a foldable smartphone. Google is one such manufacturer. This year, we have seen the launch of many foldable smartphones. The latest of these is the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3. Now, a new report has revealed the existence of a Google foldable smartphone, Google Pixel Fold.
Google recently launched the Android 12 Beta 4. In the Android 12 Beta 4 Google Camera application, developers found four devices, codenamed Oriole, Raven, Passport, Slider. Among them, Oriole and Raven are Google’s new Pixel 6 series to be released this fall. These smartphones correspond to the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
However, there are reports that the “Passport” is an upcoming Google foldable smartphone. According to speculations, the name of this device will be Google Pixel Fold. Furthermore, there are reports that this foldable smartphone from Google may arrive this fall.
According to reports, Google Pixel Fold and Google Pixel 6 series are equipped with Google’s custom chip Tensor, and Google Pixel Fold will use the camera system of Google Pixel 6. This suggests that the Google Pixel Fold will have a good imaging performance. This will not entirely be a surprise because Google is one of the best in smartphone camera optimization.
Google has since confirmed that it will release the Pixel 6 this fall. However, we can not tell if the Google Pixel Fold will also arrive at this event.
Google Pixel 6 series to launch this fall
The Google Pixel 6 comes with a 6.4-inch FHD+ display with a refresh rate of 90Hz. However, the Pixel 6 Pro uses a 6.7-inch QHD+ panel with a refresh rate of 120Hz. Both phones have three rear cameras, but the Pixel 6 Pro has a 4x zoom telephoto lens. From the information so far, the Tensor chip should be an AI chip. This means that it can directly process AI and ML models on the phone. This will also allow users to have a better camera experience, voice recognition, and other functions. The emphasis has been on voice assistant, translation, subtitles, and dictation capabilities.
In terms of software, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will get the best experience under the support of the Material You dynamic theme of Android 12. In addition, Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have the most built-in hardware security layers, which are very powerful in terms of security protection. As of now, the official website of the product is already active.
