The search engine giant’s first foldable smartphone has been the subject of numerous rumors since last year. Google has now taken advantage of Star Wars Day to finally confirm the existence of the Pixel Fold. The release of the Google Pixel Fold is not far away: on May 10, the competitor Galaxy Z Fold4 must be officially revealed.
Google Pixel Fold release: unveiling confirmed on May 10
Via Twitter, Google officially announced the unveiling of its first foldable smartphone. With the text “May the Fold be with you”, the company teased the release of Google Pixel Fold. Already on May 10, the highly anticipated smartphone will be officially unveiled during Google I/O. At the same time, we can also expect the presentation of the Google Pixel tablet.
Official details about the Google Pixel Fold are still lacking. However, leaks in recent days indicate that the foldable smartphone is shorter but wider than its direct competitor, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4.
However, Google does not seem to want to undercut the competitor in terms of price:How much does the Google Pixel Fold cost? Officially, it’s just as unknown as the final specs. However, YouTuber FrontPageTech revealed all the details in a video.

We won’t officially know if the specs are correct until May 10. However, the video mentions a starting price of $1,799. So the Google Pixel Fold is unlikely to be a success in terms of value for money.
Google Pixel Fold Leak: This is what the specs should look like
In addition, the YouTuber mentions in his video that the Google Pixel Fold will be marketed in two variants, both of which will feature the Tensor G2 chip already known from the Pixel 7 Pro (our test), as well as 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM. Only the internal storage is supposed to offer a choice of 256 GB or 512 GB.
The OLED cover display is said to measure 5.8 inches according to the company, with a Full HD+ resolution of 2092 x 1080 pixels. A 120Hz refresh rate is promised. Inside, we find an OLED panel with a resolution of 2,208 x 1,840 pixels in 6:5 format, also at 120 Hz.
As always, Google wants to score points especially with the camera configuration. The foldable is tipped to have a primary camera on the back with a 1/2-inch sensor with a resolution of 48-megapixels. Additionally, there is an ultra-wide-angle camera and a periscope telephoto lens with 20x super-resolution zoom.
