Google's foldable phone is lagging again
Google's foldable phone is lagging again

Despite Google's much-anticipated Pixel Watch announcement, there's no indication that the company will launch a Pixel Fold phone, and we likely won't see it for another year.

As the foldable device market continues to grow exponentially, there have been rumors about the device in recent years.

The company had planned to launch the project in the fourth quarter, but postponed its launch this year. This is the second time that the American company has postponed its launch, as it had originally planned to launch the phone late last year but was postponed to this year.

The launch of Google's foldable phone has reportedly been delayed until next spring. The company originally planned to release the device in 2021. However, this guidance has been pushed back to the fourth quarter of 2022.

This latest delay may explain why the device didn't appear on Google I/O and future Pixel tablet previews earlier this month.

The delay is likely due to the product not being completed as requested by the company. The launch of Google's foldable phone has been delayed until next spring, according to multiple sources in the supply chain.

This gives Google enough time to develop Android 13, which should provide a better experience when using different apps on a larger screen.

We won't see a foldable Google phone until 2023

Previous leaks indicated that Google is internally testing two designs of the device, the Passport and Jumbojack. While the Jumbojack folds horizontally like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold, the Passport folds vertically like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.

Foldable devices can be equipped with Samsung screens. The internal screen of the passport is 7.57 inches and the external screen is 5.78 inches.

Samsung Display, the only company capable of making foldable OLED panels, is focusing on supplying parent company Samsung with panels for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4.

Samsung wants to introduce about 15 million new cell phones. That's more than double the previous shipment of 7.1 million units.

Google is now focused on launching the much-anticipated Pixel Watch and Pixel 7, so it seems unlikely that the company will showcase the foldable phone at its fall Pixel event.

When the Pixel Fold arrives, it will have to compete with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the best line of foldable phones.

But what might help make the Google version stand out from the crowd is its potential use of the Tensor chip and camera.
