Rumors about Google’s first folding screen smartphone have appeared quite a lot in the past time, showing that the technology giant is trying to “acquire” what seems to be a small share of the current folding screen smartphone market. in the hands of Samsung.
According to the latest leaked information, Google’s first screen smartphone will be called Pixel Fold, codenamed “Pipit”. This machine has also appeared on Geekbench’s database before, revealing that the chip equipped by Google will be the same Tensor chip as on the Pixel 6 series.
In terms of design, we can be sure that Google will use the design style of the Galaxy Z Fold3 for the Pixel Fold. Most recently, 9to5Google has also posted videos showing that the Pixel Fold will have a design language almost similar to the OPPO Find N.
From the two videos, we can somewhat imagine the design of the Pixel Fold. Specifically, the device will cluster the volume key on the right edge and the sim slot on the bottom edge. What makes users think of OPPO Find N is that in folding mode, the device has a secondary screen with a ratio that is not too long like the Galaxy Z Fold3 or other folding screen smartphone devices, instead it is a universal ratio. More variable and more comfortable to use similar to OPPO Find N.
In addition, the report also says that the main screen of the Pixel Fold will have an aspect ratio of 8.4: 9, similar to the ratio of the Find N. As for the size, we can’t be sure yet.
The video above was found by 9to5Google inside the beta version of Android 12L, an Android operating system developed by Google specifically for devices with large screens such as tablets or foldable devices.
Not too much is known about the Pixel Fold at the moment, but we can expect this device to be introduced by Google in the first half of this year.
