Google’s foldable Pixel smartphone could debut by end of 2021


For a while now, it has been rumored that Google could be working on a foldable Pixel phone. The company had in the past updated Android to support foldable devices, which led to speculation that they might be working on such a device themselves. Now a tweet from leakster Jon Prosser has “confirmed” the existence of such a device, and that it could be launching by the end of 2021.

The device in question is said to be given the codename “Passport”, which doesn’t really leave much to the imagination in terms of its form factor. Prosser does note that its launch could be late and that it will either take place towards the end of 2021 or in the early part of 2022.

Unfortunately, not much is known about the foldable Pixel phone at the moment. We did come across a recent report that suggested that Samsung could be the one to supply Google with the displays, and that the final device could end up being roughly similar in size to the Galaxy Z Fold 2.

It will be quite a huge departure for Google to launch such a device, especially when you consider that the company’s Pixel phones have typically remained somewhat lowkey in terms of design, but it could be of interest to those who might prefer a more vanilla Android experience.
