- So, despite rumours that Google’s foldable phone will be introduced later this year, we likely won’t see it until 2023.

The release date for the highly anticipated Google Pixel Fold smartphone has been leaked ahead of its official announcement. At last week’s Made by Google event, Google unveiled the Pixel 7 line of smartphones, as well as the Pixel Watch. The Pixel Tablet, the company’s first tablet, was also discussed in detail.
The American tech giant, unfortunately, did not provide any crucial details regarding its foldable smartphone during the event. There have been rumours that Google has delayed the release of the Pixel Fold. So, despite rumours to the contrary that Google’s foldable phone will be unveiled later this year, we probably won’t see it until 2022.
Remember when credible insider Evan Blass recently suggested the foldable Pixel might debut before the end of the year? Now we have a better idea of when to expect the Pixel FOLD to be released, thanks to DSCC CEO Ross Young. Young claims that this year will not see the introduction of the Pixel Fold. According to him, Google is getting ready to unveil its first foldable smartphone sometime in the first quarter of 2023.
Release Schedule for Google’s Pixel Fold
Young suggested Google would release the Pixel FOLD in the first quarter of 2023 in response to a tweet from well-known leaker Roland Quandt. In addition, he says that Google will start receiving shipments of Pixel FOLD panels in January. Gadgets 360 suggests Google is developing not one but two foldable smartphones.
One of Google’s Android 13 QPR1 beta’s hidden features is a foldable phone, which was recently discovered by a developer. Notably, Felix is the codename for this foldable smartphone. There are three cameras on the rear of the foldable tablet. These components consist of an IMX787 main sensor and an IMX386 ultra-wide-angle camera. It also has a telephoto lens, the S5K3J1.
For taking group photos or video chats, the foldable phone’s front-facing S5k3J1 telephoto lens is a handy addition. In January of this year, rumours began circulating about a foldable phone with the codename Pipit. The manufacturer admitted that an older Tensor SOC is installed in this version. In addition, previous rumours have indicated that Google’s foldable phone might debut as either the Pixel Fold or the Pixel Notepad.
In addition, Foxconn has the ability to manufacture this foldable phone in China. It’s possible that it’ll have a 7.57-inch screen on the inside and a 5.78-inch screen on the outside. Finally, Google’s foldable smartphone may have a glass back.
