Google Pixel Fold launch time tipped

Earlier, the Google Pixel Fold was reported to launch in the fourth quarter of this year, most likely during the recent ‘Made by Google’ event. However, that didn’t materialise. Additionally, Google is said to be working on its first foldable smartphone for over two years now. 

In the latest development, DSCC analyst Ross Young stated that the Pixel Fold could debut sometime in the first quarter of 2023. Here we are looking at the period from January to March 2023. He also claimed that the company will start receiving panel shipments for the device in January. The search giant’s foldable smartphone could also debut alongside the Pixel Tablet which is already confirmed to arrive in early 2023. 

Previous reports suggest that Google’s foldable smartphone could be called Pixel Fold or Pixel Notepad. Recently, a developer spotted the name of the foldable device codenamed ‘Felix’ in a line of code from Google’s Android 13 Quarterly Platform Release 1 (QPR1) beta. It is rumoured to come with a 7.57-inch inner display and a 5.87-inch outer screen. Google’s foldable smartphone is also tipped to be similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 4.
