The Pixel Fold was arguably the most anticipated product from Google I/O this year, and the company delivered everything that we wanted. (You might not be a fan of the price, though.)
Google touts the Pixel Fold as the thinnest foldable on the market, with a smaller form factor than its closest competitor, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. It’s not wrong. The new foldable has a 5.8-inch display on the front and a 7.6-inch display inside, both of which refresh at 120Hz.
Most importantly, Google presented several use cases for the folding form factor, like Dual Screen Live Translation, which provides a transcription of dialogues between two different languages, and astrophotography, which lets you capture stars when you set the phone down and flex the display upwards. Some of the announced features will be available when the Pixel Fold gets the Android 14 update later this year.
A Google Tensor G2 chip powers Pixel Fold, lending to improved machine learning capabilities, photo-editing features, and better efficiency overall. No matter which storage configuration you purchase — prices start at $1,799 for the 256GB model and $1,919 for the 512GB — you’ll get 12GB of RAM, a 4,821mAh battery capacity, and Titan M2 security.
Pre-orders start today, and Google says the Pixel Fold will begin to ship next month.
