Pixel Fold: discover the design of the first foldable smartphone from Google

The Pixel Fold is revealed! As the launch approaches, the design of Google’s foldable smartphone is revealed in full in a series of 3D renderings by a renowned graphic designer. We discover a device halfway between the Pixel 6 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 from Samsung.

Like all mobile phone manufacturers, Google is currently working on its first smartphone with a foldable screen. Mentioned under the name Pixel Fold by the various leaks, the foldable smartphone would be presented by the end of the year 2021. Several clues unearthed in the one-off Android 12.1 update confirm the imminent arrival of this mysterious Pixel Fold. The smartphone has also been confirmed by an internal Google document.

Based on leaks and patents filed by Google, LetsGoDigital and the graphic designer Waqar Khan have come up with a 3D video showing the alleged design of the Pixel Fold. As expected, the foldable phone comes very close to the Galaxy Z Fold 3, one of the latest folding phones in Samsung. The Pixel Fold would therefore be a phone that converts into a mini tablet.

The terminal is built around a large foldable screen that folds inward. A central hinge allows the screen to fold, as is the case on Huawei’s Galaxy Z Fold 3 or Mate X2. In the right corner of this folding slab, Google slides a photo sensor for selfies in a tiny hole. On the back, the brand places a smaller secondary screen for notifications and other contextual information (time, messages, weather, etc.). In short, the Pixel Fold does not revolutionize the genre.

We come to the design of the camera. From renderings by Waqar Khan, Google would take over the aesthetics of the photo block Pixel 6 on his foldable smartphone. We therefore see three sensors accompanied by an LED flash in a large prominent band.

On the technical sheet side, the Pixel Fold would be covered with an LTPO screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Mirroring Samsung, the Mountain View giant should use Ultra Thin Glass technology. This proprietary glass produced by the South Korean company DOWOO Insys measures only 30 micrometers (or one millionth of a meter).
