The Google Pixel Fold has been rumoured for nearly a year. The foldable was meant to be released last year, but it was apparently postponed because to a component shortage at Google.
According to an exclusive revelation from Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, Google’s foldable Pixel project has been revived (DSCC). He claims that mass manufacture will begin in Q3 of 2022, but that the phone would not be available until the fourth quarter of the year (October–December).
It's back! Looks like Google's foldable Pixel will start panel production in Q3'22 and launch in Q4'22.— Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) February 14, 2022
Apart from these two dates, the tweet is devoid of any additional details. According to previous reports, the Pixel Fold would compete against top-tier folding phones like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. It will have a 120Hz refresh rate and a power-saving LTPO OLED display.
The main camera system will have a 12.2 megapixel Sony IMX363 sensor, a 12 megapixel Sony IMX386 sensor, and two 8 megapixel Sony IMX355 sensors. Android 12L, which is the large-screen version of Android 12, is anticipated to come pre-installed on the phone.
However, none of these reports have been independently validated, so take them with a grain of salt for the time being.
