Google Pixel Fold – what’s new

Most of the things the teaser has showcased are already known, thanks to the several leaks over the past few months.

Going by the teaser, it seems Google has managed to hide the crease pretty well, and when opened, the device seems to have a creaseless display. The device also appears to have a sleek design.

The rear design resembles other Pixel smartphones, featuring a large bar that houses the rear camera setup. The device comes with two selfie cameras – one on the outer and one on the inner. We can see in the teaser that the inner selfie camera is placed on the right side.

The teaser has also revealed that the Pixel Fold will feature a periscope zoom camera at the back, just like the Pixel 7 series.

Pixel Fold launch in India

India has been a tough market for Google, with the company finding fewer takers for its premium devices than other countries. After skipping several versions of its flagship series, Google launched the Pixel 7 series in 2022, the first flagship launch from the company after the Pixel 3, which was launched in 2018.

The Pixel Fold is expected to be priced above $1,400 (approx. ₹1,14,300), so the company might skip launching it in India.

Google India’s Twitter account has not shared the teaser of the device, hinting that the device may not debut in India.

This does not mean India is not getting a new device at the I/O. Google India has already confirmed that the Pixel 7a smartphone will be launched in India on May 11.

Google Pixel Fold expected specifications

The Google Pixel Fold is expected to be powered by the company’s Tensor G2 chipset, coupled with up to 12GB of RAM. The device will feature a 7.6-inch Quad HD+ inner display with a 120Hz refresh rate.

The device is expected to feature a 5.8-inch Full HD+ OLED display on the outside.
