From the teaser video, the new foldable phone will boast specs similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold line, with a book-like fold, a full-front screen that stretches to its edges, and an interior screen slightly smaller from the bezels. Its back camera also resembles those of other Pixel devices.
Marketed as one of Google’s high-end models, premium product design and functionality. Luckily, the Pixel Fold delivers and boasts a sleek user interface, with customizable Android widgets that can also be seen on the bottom corner of the screen.
Pixel Fold will reportedly house a Google Tensor G2 processor and will be priced over $1,700.
While Google has yet to confirm these features, it plans to unveil more details about the Pixel Fold in the Google I/O 2023 event happening on May 10.
Some netizens have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the upcoming smartphone.
“Hopefully the Pixel Fold will be a Legitimate Z Fold 5 Competitor. Hype is real,” one user wrote.

Despite criticism on the premium phone’s appearance for having bezels, users still remain optimistic over its launch.
The Pixel Fold's bezels are fine. I don't mind the selfie camera on my #Pixel7Pro, but I can also appreciate how #Google is "hiding" the Fold's inner camera in the top bezel, which results in a clean all-screen look.#GooglePixel#TeamPixel#PixelFoldhttps://t.co/CME6UlTx0b— Sterling (@GreenShades9) April 29, 2023
