Fans of Google had hoped for it upcoming Pixel Fold, Google’s first foldable smartphone would launch, or at least be unveiled, at this year’s Made by Google Launch event. However, they could only be happy about the Google Pixel 7 series, the Apple Watch and the Google Pixel tablet.

Now, a fairly reliable source, Ross Young, the CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, or DSCC, has given us a tentative timeline by the end of which we may finally see Google launch the Pixel Fold. According to Young, the first foldable Pixel smartphone could be launched by the end of the first quarter of 2023.

According to previous claims, Google may be developing two foldable smartphones. A developer has spotted a reference to a foldable phone codenamed “Felix” in a line of code from Google’s Android 13 QPR1 beta.

Previous leaks also suggested that the Google Pixel Fold will likely come with a triple rear camera. This array can consist of an IMX787 main sensor, an IMX386 ultra-wide-angle lens and an S5K3J1 telephoto lens.

The front camera can also be an S5K3J1 sensor. However, there is a good chance that the selfie camera will be integrated into the external display. Speaking of displays, the Pixel Fold will likely get a 5.78-inch external display with a very thin glass cover, and it’s expected to include a 7.57-inch internal display. Google will use the latest generation of the Tensor G2 SoC on the foldable device.

Stylistically, it should be similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 4. Google’s foldable smartphone could pass the names Pixel Fold or Pixel Notepad. Foxconn will produce it in China. The release of this smartphone was apparently postponed in May this year.
