According to Digital Chat Station, Google signed a deal with Foxconn to make two of its flagship devices for 2022. These include the upcoming Google Pixel 7 Pro and the much rumored Google Pixel Fold. While he did not seem to have access to renders of the Pixel Fold, he claims that the device will feature a flexible screen with a centered hole punch for the front-facing camera. As far as the display specs go, rumors suggest that the main display will boast a 2K display resolution.
The Pixel Fold’s camera setup will likely include a 50MP camera sensor — possibly the same one that the Pixel 7 will get. In addition to this, Digital Chat Station also talks about the phone using the IMX 787 sensor for its secondary camera. The most interesting camera-centric rumor, however, is the possibility that the phone could get a dedicated periscope camera with variable focal length capabilities. This would be a first on any Pixel device, if true.
While we know precious little about the design aspects of the Pixel Fold, there is a possibility of the device featuring a ceramic body. Interestingly, the rumor also talks about the likelihood of Google equipping the phone with a new generation of Tensor chips under the Tensor 2 branding.
Given the Digital Chat Station’s track record, there is a good chance that Google is indeed working on bringing the Pixel Fold late this year. However, as with most rumors, we would recommend taking this piece of news with the traditional pinch of salt.
