Google Pixel Fold, according to a recent report, is expected to come in the last months of 2021, perhaps shocking audiences with the company’s first foldable smartphone, in addition to the Google Pixel 6, which we expect to launch in October.
A tweet from David Naranjo, Senior Director of Display Supply Chain Consultants, shows various gadgets that are expected to employ LTPO OLED panels from Samsung Display Company (SDC) and will be available in Q3 and Q4 of 2021, according to the company.
The iPhone 13 Pro is expected to be released in the third quarter of this year, with the Google Pixel 6 Pro and Google Pixel Fold following in the fourth quarter.
The unveiling of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, which have a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz, brings the total number of current and rumoured models that utilise SDC’s LTPO OLED screens to 20 (including rumoured models). pic.twitter.com/5wlbsl2HF1 The date is September 16, 2021.
It is the mention of Google’s Pixel Fold, particularly in light of the fact that it is scheduled to be released in December, that has us so curious.
Due to the fact that it is slated to ship at roughly the same time as the Google Pixel 6 range, which is expected to launch in October, it appears that Google’s foldable phone will be available much sooner than previously thought.
The Google Pixel Fold will be released soon…
When will it be available for purchase?
We’ve known for a long that the Pixel Fold will be available in 2021, but the exact date of when the foldable will be accessible has remained a mystery.
Given the amount of speculation surrounding its existence, it seems more likely than not to see the phone in the near future, rather than later. So, given these considerations, what is the justification for expecting it in 2021?
The latest rumour compares alleged features of the Pixel Fold to those of the as-yet-unreleased Pixel 6 (which Google has so openly acknowledged that units have appeared in the windows of the Google Store in New York City) – and it suggests that Google’s foldable device may simply be a folding variant of its next flagship smartphone.
This comprises a Tensor processor developed in-house, as well as a modem and cameras.
After being referred to by its extensively reported codename (‘Passport’) in an Android 12 beta with codenames linked with the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 5a, it is possible that the Pixel Fold will still be available by 2020.
