In May 2023, the tech giant Google entered the foldable smartphone market with the Google Pixel Fold. The company might debut the successor to its foldable, i.e., the Pixel Fold 2, this year. Recently, a new report from Android Authority unveiled some key specifications as well as the launch timeframe of the device.
Specifications of the Google Pixel Fold 2
The report includes a reference to an anonymous source, which indicates that the company has been internally testing the Pixel Fold 2 for the last few months. Reportedly, the foldable is powered by a chipset codenamed “zumapro.” Interestingly, the chipset powering the Pixel 8 series (the Tensor G3) has been codenamed ‘zuma.’ Therefore, it seems likely that the Tensor G4 will be the zumapro chip powering the upcoming foldable device. One thing to notice here is that the Tensor G2 chip powers the original Pixel Fold 2.
Reportedly, Samsung will manufacture the Tensor G 4 chips for Google. According to details, the chipset will be equipped with ARM Cortex-X4, A720, and A520 CPU cores. The Pixel Fold comes with 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage; however, the upcoming foldable is expected to feature 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of UFS 4.0 storage. Perhaps it will come with the Pixel AI assistant.
When will the Google Pixel Fold 2 launch?
According to the report, the smartphone is presently at the Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage, suggesting that the device will take several months before entering the mass production phase. In October 2024, Google will debut the Pixel 9 and 9 Pro, powered by the Tensor G4 chip. Given that the Pixel Fold 2 is now rumored to contain the same chip, the Pixel 9 series may launch alongside it.
