With Google’s smartphone launch for the year already behind us and no official word on a foldable device from the company, the rumour mill is hard at work. It has just leaked display specifications for an upcoming Google foldable, reportedly called the Pixel Fold, suspected to release in March 2023.
91Mobiles reports that the Pixel Fold. codenamed Felix will feature foldable displays from Samsung both internally and externally. The phone is tipped to have a similar form factor as the Galaxy Z Fold and a lower price tag, so it’ll be interesting to see how this Google-Samsung partnership works out.
The internal foldable screen is rumoured to be running at a resolution of 2208 x 1840, coming in at 123mm x 148mm, which indicates a 7.5-inch display measured diagonally. The screen is slightly smaller in size compared to the older Galaxy Z Fold 2’s 7.6-inch screen running at 2208 x 1768. As you can tell, the resolution is also slightly higher, suggesting a higher pixel density and most likely better visual quality and sharpness on the Pixel Fold.
It’s also tipped to be high-refresh-rate, and while we don’t have a confirmed number yet, developer Kuba Wojciechowski, 91Mobiles’ source for the display leak, suggests it could go up to 120Hz. The display will feature an average brightness of 800 nits, with the peak going up to 1200 nits.
There’s no word on the external display at the moment, but you can expect it to be about the same in terms of specs compared to the Z Fold 4’s external display.
The phone shares its processor with the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro — the Tensor G2 and a triple camera system at the back. The primary camera is expected to be a 50MP Sony IMX787 sensor paired with an IMX386 ultrawide and S5K3J1 telephoto lens. As for the selfie camera, we expect to see an IMX355.
