There have been several leaks about the impending Google Pixel 7a and Pixel Fold over the last few hectic weeks. While the former has received the majority of the attention, this week ends with a significant leak for the Pixel Fold that may provide the most pristine images of the product to date. Although there has been no official announcement regarding the release date of this device, early reports indicate that it will be unveiled on May 10 during Google I/O 2023.
The most recent renderings were released by Evan Blass, also known as evleaks on Twitter. The renderings were published by Blass to his personal Twitter account, and the pictures are breathtaking. The images are quite different from anything we’ve seen before, and they may be actual renderings that Google uses for marketing. The photos’ sharpness, which brings out all the phone’s small features, is probably one of the first things you’ll notice.
First Photograph of the Pixel Fold
We can only see the exterior display, hinge, and associated parts in the first photograph of the Pixel Fold because it is closed. However, the phone has been unfolded in the second image, giving us a bit more of a look at the hinge area and rear panel. As we can see, the hinge appears to be fairly sleek, and the outside display’s edges are rounded. Naturally, we won’t truly understand how thin or thick this handset is until we receive official details, but an early report indicates that this device will measure 5.5 inches x 3.1 inches x 0.5 inches when it is closed.
The smartphone’s back has a similar appearance to prior Pixel smartphones, although it deviates significantly since the camera bar does not extend all the way to the edge. Instead, we get a long floating island that nonetheless has a really attractive and distinctive appearance. The Pixel Launcher and Material You inspired icons are another feature we can notice from the image. Although some details on the front display are blurred, probably for someone’s protection, it doesn’t take away from the phone’s overall beauty. The color we see in the render doesn’t yet have an official name, but when it is, Obsidian may become its moniker. There will be even another color, maybe in the form of chalk.
Specification of Google Pixel Fold:
Most of all, this phone is even more amazing than in earlier models, which will undoubtedly thrill more Pixel lovers as the time for the formal unveiling gets near. Regarding the specifications, Jon Prosser of Front Page Tech gave us a significant amount of information, revealing that the Pixel Fold will use Google’s Tensor G2 processor in conjunction with 12GB LPDDR5 RAM. The phone will come in two different storage configurations, each having 512GB or 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The outside panel measures 5.8 inches and has a resolution of 2092×1080, while the inner display is 7.6 inches and has a resolution of 2208×1840. Both displays are OLED and have a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz.
A 48MP primary camera with an f/1.7 aperture, a 10.8MP telephoto lens with a five-times optical zoom and an f/3.05 aperture, and a 10.8MP ultrawide lens with an f/2.2 aperture will be included in the device’s triple camera configuration on the back. A 9.5MP front camera with an f/2.2 aperture and an 8MP selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture will also be included.
Regarding the price, it is said that the 256GB model will cost $1,799 and the 512GB model will cost $1,919. A free Google Pixel Watch will reportedly be offered as part of a presale incentive for the Pixel Fold. If all goes according to plan, we should be able to witness this publicly introduced on stage at Google I/O next month.
