Google has teased footage of its new flagship foldable smartphone Pixel Fold a day before its official unveiling at the I/O 2023 event.  

Bits of the new flip phone were seen in the unlisted video entitled “Google Pixel x NBA: The Greatest Watch Party,” which was initially shared by Google Pixel via Twitter. However, the account has since taken down the tweet, telling readers instead to “check back in tomorrow.”  

While the video commercial has been set to private, users who were able to catch it reported to seeing various NBA and WNBA stars and the American personality Druski use the unreleased phone in their day-to-day activities.

Additionally, the short ad reportedly showcased the phone from different angles, with the phone closed, opened wide, and placed on a table sitting at a 90-degree angle. It also demonstrated some of its unique features, such as the ability to switch seamlessly between internal and external screens.   

The Pixel Fold was officially announced by Google last May 5 together with a launch site and a short video revealing its new look.  

Rivaling foldable smartphones such as Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold, the Pixel Fold is suspected to house a Google Tensor G2 processor, a 7.6-inch OLED inner display, a 5.8-inch OLED outer display, and price point above $1,700.  

Google will officially reveal its new flagship along with all its features in the Google I/O 2023 happening today at 1PM ET/10AM PT on their YouTube channel
