According to GSM Arena, with Google preparing to launch the Pixel 6 series, the tech giant may also announce the upcoming Pixel Fold in the fourth quarter of this year.
It’s been a few years since Google first hinted at a foldable Pixel phone. Now that some of its development has been made public, it is expected that Google will launch the device at the end of 2021. This information has been given by David Naranjo, Senior Director, Display Supply Chain Consultants. A recent tweet by Naranjo shares a list of devices that are available or rumored to use LTPO OLED panels from SDC. These also include the name of Google Pixel Fold.
According to Naranjo’s tweet, LTPO OLED display can be used on Google’s Pixel Fold. This is not the first time that the launch timeline of the Pixel Fold has been indicated. According to GSM Arena, with Google preparing to launch the Pixel 6 series, the tech giant may also announce the upcoming Pixel Fold in the fourth quarter of this year. The report states that Google is expected to launch its Pixel 6 series on October 19.
Along with suggestions for hardware development, Google is known to actively push for more customized Android for foldable devices. However, it started as a medium by other OEMs to enable the platform for foldable smartphones.
