It has been rumored and predicted for days, and now it is really happening. The Pixel Fold gadget from Google has been officially revealed, and it will be introduced on May 10 at the forthcoming Google I/O 2023 conference. The search engine behemoth has posted a brief teaser for the gadget but has not provided any other information.
A full-size outside display that unfolds in the video seems quite similar to previous folding handsets from Samsung and Oppo. It’s interesting to note that the camera island on the back panel resembles those seen on previous Pixel phones. However, it doesn’t stick out as far as earlier camera modules did. The gadget also reminds me of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold.

It is said to cost approximately $1,700 (around Rs 1,38,845). The Pixel Fold maintains the same visual language as the Pixel range of smartphones in terms of design. Since there is currently no internal camera, Google may be skipping the camera altogether or adding an under-display camera. Later, more information about the camera will be revealed.

A wrinkle can be seen on the inside of the front-facing screen, which is rather significant. The interface for Android’s Material UI is seen in the teaser. On the metal edge, we also saw the power and volume rockers. The device’s introduction was originally scheduled for 2022, however, it was postponed.
Regardless, there has been a steady stream of rumors over the past few months regarding the device’s specifications and features. The titan of technology has been working hard to establish itself in the foldable market, which is now dominated by Samsung. Google has been closely collaborating with the manufacturer of South Korean smartphones to develop an Android version that is ideal for the foldable form aspect.
