Gizcoupon reported on May 5th that Google has officially announced the release of the Pixel Fold, which will take place on May 10th(Beijing time) via the “Made by Google” official Twitter account.
A short 8-second video showcased the whole appearance of the Pixel Fold phone. The back of the device adopts the design language of the Pixel series, with a long strip-shaped camera module featuring 3 cameras.
As previously reported by Gizcoupon, the rear camera system includes a 48-megapixel main camera with an f/1.7 aperture, a 10.8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens with an f/2.2 aperture, and a 1080-megapixel telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom.
The Pixel Fold features 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and comes in two storage versions, 256 GB and 512 GB. The prices of the two models are $1799 (approximately ¥12,395) and $1919 (approximately ¥13,222), respectively.
The video confirms Gizcoupon’s previous reports that the Google Pixel Fold features the Tensor G2 chipset. Thanks to the improved Samsung 5nm process, its performance is expected to be better than that of the Pixel 7 series.
