Ahead of its I/O 2023 event on May 10th, Google has officially revealed the Pixel Fold, its first foldable phone. The company hasn’t revealed any specifications but showed what to expect in a teaser video posted on Twitter and YouTube.
The teaser video showcases a device with a vertical hinge and opens up in a tablet form similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold. When folded, a small display is on one side, while the other has a camera layout like Google’s Pixel phones.
An earlier report from CNBC suggests the Pixel Fold will cost upward of $1,700, the same price range as Samsung’s recent Galaxy Z Fold 4, which costs $1,799. The outside screen will be 5.8 inches, while the tablet-size screen will be 7.6 inches, according to photos obtained by CNBC. The foldable will reportedly be water-resistant with a weight of 10oz. Google’s in-house Tensor G2 chipset will power it.
Google will stream the I/O 2023 live on May 10th at 10 AM PT. The event will take place at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, in front of a “limited live audience.”
Google has a page already where interested personnel can sign up for more on the Pixel Fold when it is officially launched on May 10th.
