Google has been waiting for a long time to enter the foldable smartphone segment. This milestone should materialize later this year with the official presentation of the Google Pixel Fold.
Victim of several delays due to some production problems, it seems that it will be in 2023 when we meet this team. Something that, according to the latest rumors, will happen in June.
Google Pixel Fold will be presented in early June
The information is advanced by the publication WinFuture. Their sources point to the launch of the Pixel Fold in early June in the company of a new mid-range model, the Pixel 7a.
This will be the first pair of smartphones that Google is expected to introduce in 2023. The same sources believe that two more models will be unveiled later this year, most likely the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro in October as the law dictates. tradition.
But attention is focused, for now, on the first folding smartphone from the American company. And its price will be predominant for its success in the market. According to the WinFuture publication, the Google Pixel Fold will arrive in Europe for €1,700. Surely this label will become €1699 as soon as it hits the shelves of the Old Continent.
If so, the Google Pixel Fold will be slightly below the values that Samsung usually asks for its Galaxy Z Fold line. Whether it will have enough assets to divert attention from the current queen of this market segment remains to be seen.
Portugal may once again be left out of the range of countries officially covered by the Pixel Fold. Therefore, if you are thinking of acquiring this model, you will probably have to import it, something that will not be too complicated for you.
Also keep in mind the possible price of the Pixel 7a. Based on what we know now, this mid-range model should hit stores for €500, in line with some of its main competitors.
All in all, June could be one of the most important months for Google. It will be there that the company will enter a new market niche and it will be interesting to know how it will behave in the face of fierce competition, especially from Samsung.
