Google’s highly anticipated Pixel Fold has been the subject of rumors and speculation for months. However, thanks to some recent marketing renders, we now have a much clearer picture of what to expect from the foldable smartphone ahead of its expected official unveiling at the Google I/O event on May 10.
Renowned leaker Evan Blass has shared genuine renders of the Pixel Fold, which confirm many of the design details that have been floating around for some time. The Pixel Fold appears to take a page out of Samsung’s book, adopting a form factor similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 4, with a 5.8-inch OLED display on the outer cover, and a main 7.6-inch OLED display that unfolds like a book. Both screens have a 120Hz refresh rate.
According to Blass, the device is 5.5 inches tall by 3.1 inches wide by 0.5 inches thin when folded (139.7mm x 79.5mm x 12.1mm) and 5.5 inches x 6.2 inches x 0.2 inches (139.7mm x 158.7mm x 5.2mm) when unfolded, making it easy to fit into a pocket when folded. The Pixel Fold will be powered by Google’s Tensor G2 chip and a dedicated Titan M2 security co-processor, with 12GB of RAM, and 256GB or 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The Pixel Fold’s outer cameras consist of 48MP main, 10.8MP ultra-wide, and 10.8MP Dual Pixel telephoto lenses, while the inner camera is an 8MP lens. The device is IPX8 water-resistant and has a 4,821mAh battery that can last up to 24 hours. Color options include Obsidian and Porcelain.
Google plans to market the Pixel Fold as the device with the “most durable hinge” on a foldable smartphone, which is a significant selling point given recent reports of hinge problems on Samsung’s foldable Z phone line. The device is expected to be priced at around $1,700, which is consistent with Samsung’s pricing.

Google will beat Apple to the foldable smartphone market with the Pixel Fold, which is set to be released in June. Although there have been rumors that Apple has been experimenting with foldable iPhones, analysts predict that the company won’t release a foldable iPhone until 2025 at the earliest. However, the company could introduce foldable technology in the iPad first.
The Pixel Fold is one of the most highly anticipated devices of the year, and Google is expected to make a big splash at the upcoming Google I/O event. With the release of the Pixel Fold, Google is poised to compete with Samsung for dominance in the foldable smartphone market.
