Rumors say that the foldable Pixel phone will use a 7.6-inch LTPO display and a 120Hz refresh rate, just like the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

It is not surprising. Given that Samsung is currently the leader in foldable display technology.

Google has had a lot of interaction with the company lately, working on Wear OS 3 and reportedly on the Tensor chip as well.

It's not clear if the Passport will come with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, or if Google wants to announce it later this year.

Given that the company has partially shown the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The release of Passport may come as a surprise to Google's expected hardware events.

Foldable pixels also indicate better support for Android's foldable hardware interface. As technology may become more prevalent in the next few years, this is a meaningful change.

The tensioner chip makes the Pixel 6 one of the best Android phones, according to the company. In addition, it is one of the most secure mobile phones in the world.

The chip gives the company complete control over hardware and software communication methods, which could lead to improved image processing and more.

The device can also use an unknown Samsung Exynos modem. This compatible g5123b modem uses the latest Samsung 5123A processor.
