Google Pixel Fold Introduction
Google has released its first foldable display product, the Google Pixel Fold, alongside the Pixel 7a and Pixel Tablet. The Pixel Fold features a 5.8-inch outer screen size with a 2092 × 1080 resolution, a 17.4:9 display ratio, and a 120Hz OLED panel. It also has Corning Gorilla Glass Victus, HDR brightness of 1200 nits, and a peak brightness of 1550 nits.
The inner screen size is 7.6 inches with an OLED display, a 6:5 display ratio, and a 2208 × 1840 resolution. The inner screen also features a 120Hz refresh rate, UTG glass overlay, and a peak brightness of 1450 nits.
Unlike many other manufacturers, the Pixel Fold’s phone bezel is wide, which is a big disappointment. The processor is equipped with Tensor G2 jointly developed by Google and Samsung, supplemented by an M2 security co-processor, and up to 12GB LPDDR5 + 512GB UFS 3.1 storage combination.
In terms of imaging, the Pixel Fold features a 48MP main camera, a 10.8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 10.8MP telephoto lens, along with a 9.5MP lens on the outer screen and an 8MP lens on the inner screen. Additionally, the Pixel Fold has a laser sensor on the back for autofocus. It supports features such as night mode, portrait mode, and Google Magic Eraser, and can record 4K/60fps video.
The Pixel Fold includes a side power button with fingerprint recognition, physical SIM + e-SIM dual SIM support, a 4821mAh battery, and 30W wired charging. It comes pre-installed with Android 13L.
The Pixel Fold is available in a 256GB version priced at $1799 and a 512GB version priced at $1919. Overall, the Google Pixel Fold boasts moderate specs, but Google’s exclusive software tweaks may add some worth.
